New Super Mario Bros. is a platform video game in the New Super Mario Bros. series developed by Nintendo for the Nintendo DS. It is a part of the New Super Mario Bros. subseries of the Super Mario franchise, and follows Mario as he fights his way through Bowser’s henchmen to rescue Princess Peach. Mario has access to several power-ups that help him complete his quest, including the Super Mushroom, the Fire Flower, and the Super Star, each giving him unique abilities. While traveling through eight worlds with a total of 80 levels, Mario must defeat Bowser Jr. and Bowser before saving Princess Peach.

New Super Mario Bros. was commercially successful and received positive reviews; praise went towards its improvements made to the Mario franchise and faithfulness to older Mario games, while criticism was targeted at its low difficulty level and many critics noted its similarity to previous games. It sold over 30 million copies worldwide, making it the best-selling game for the Nintendo DS and one of the best-selling video games of all time. The game’s success led to a line of sequels released for the Wii, Nintendo 3DS, and Wii U.

Ice Mario is a form that Mario takes upon touching an Ice Flower, granting him ice-related powers. It is often viewed as a parallel to Fire Mario. A vastly different form of the same name appears in Super Mario Galaxy.The Ice form gives Mario, Luigi, Blue Toad and Yellow Toad the power to shoot Ice Balls, just like with the Ice Flower Bros. Item in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. In this form, Mario’s overalls turn red, while his cap and shirt turn cyan, similar to Fire Mario (likewise, Luigi and the Toads have their own take on this appearance).

Ice Balls can be used to take out Larry, Iggy, Morton, Roy, Ludwig, and Kamek’s magical fireballs, as well as Bowser and Bowser Jr.’s fireballs. However, they cannot hurt nor freeze the bosses. Normal enemies will be trapped in ice cubes when hit by an Ice Ball. They will eventually try to free themselves, but the effect of this varies from enemy to enemy. Some will die after breaking free, releasing coins, but others can free themselves without taking damage. If the player lifts a frozen enemy, they will never break free as long as they’re being held.

The frozen enemies can be ground-pounded to defeat them. Many frozen enemies can also be defeated by lifting and throwing them, which makes them slide in the direction they were thrown, defeating other enemies in their path until they shatter on a wall or fall of a cliff. Even unbeatable enemies like Dry Bones can be destroyed after being frozen and will not revive. However, some enemies and obstacles, like Thwomps, are so solid that Ice Balls cannot freeze them. Other large enemies, such as Porcupuffers and Big Piranha Plants, can be frozen, but will break out immediately and ultimately cannot be harmed by ice. Other enemies, like most other Piranha Plants and Sledge Bros., cannot be picked up. Flying enemies can be frozen in mid-air, allowing the player to jump off them, but after a while, their block will fall and break on the ground, defeating them.

The untitled Mario film is an upcoming computer-animated film to be produced by Illumination in association with Nintendo, with distribution by Universal Pictures. It is the third feature film adaptation of Nintendo’s Mario video game series, following the 1986 Japanese-only anime film Super Mario Bros.: The Great Mission to Rescue Princess Peach! and the 1993 live-action film Super Mario Bros. The film is being directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic from a screenplay by Matthew Fogel and features an ensemble voice cast including Chris Pratt, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Day, Jack Black, Keegan-Michael Key, Seth Rogen, Fred Armisen, Kevin Michael Richardson, Sebastian Maniscalco, and Charles Martinet.

After the critical and commercial failure of the 1993 film, Nintendo was reluctant to license its intellectual properties for film adaptations. Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto became interested in developing another Mario film when Nintendo was bringing its older games to the Virtual Console service, and through Nintendo’s work with Universal Parks & Resorts to create Mario-based attractions he met Illumination founder Chris Meledandri. By 2016, the two were discussing a Mario film, and in January 2018 Nintendo announced that it would collaborate with Illumination and Universal to produce it. Production was underway by 2020.

The film is scheduled to be released in the United States on April 7, 2023.

In May 2021, Furukawa said that Nintendo was interested in producing more animated films based on its IP if the Mario film is successful. The following November, reports emerged that Illumination was developing a Donkey Kong spin-off film, with Rogen set to reprise his role. In February 2022, Charlie Day expressed interest in doing a Luigi’s Mansion movie.

Nintendo’s animated Super Mario Bros. movie is delayed until next spring, still stars Chris Pratt

The movie will be released in North America on April 7th, 2023.

During a Nintendo Direct event last fall, the company revealed a release date for the animated Super Mario Bros. movie that it’s making with Minions animation studio Illumination. Now the company has revealed that the movie will not hit theaters on December 21st as planned and instead will be released in the spring of 2023.

A tweet credited to Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto says that after consulting with co-producer Chris Meledandri, the new release dates for the Super Mario Bros. film are April 28th in Japan and April 7th in North America. The tweet did not offer an explanation of how Chris Pratt will portray Mario, a title, or answer any of the other questions we’ve had since this project was announced in 2018.

Other cast members who have been confirmed for the flick include Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Seth Rogan as Donkey Kong, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, and Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong. Longtime Mario voice actor Charles Martinet will also be a part of the movie, although it’s unclear exactly how.

Miyamoto promised the movie will be “well worth the wait,” and we only have to look at the success of the first Sonic the Hedgehog movie to see how true that can be. The first movie needed a three-month delay so animators could fix Sonic after viewers recoiled at the first trailer, and when it came out, the movie was a hit. There’s no indication of similar issues with the Mario movie, while we still don’t know much about it, Deadline reports that the delay is about “optimizing the family audience” with a release on Easter weekend next year. That it could potentially sync up with the opening of the first US Super Nintendo World theme park and Nintendo’s sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is just a bonus.
