Japan-only Mario DSiWare[edit]

There are two (currently) Japan-only Mario DSiWare downloads that aren't mentioned. However, they don't really seem to be games, they look more like applications to me, so I don't know how to handle them. They are the following:

  • Nintendo DSi Dentaku: Famicom Mario Type – A Super Mario Bros.-themed calculator (dentaku means calculator). (official site - screenshots)
  • Nintendo DSi Tokei: Famicom Mario Type – This time it's a clock (tokei), Super Mario Bros.-themed again. (official site - screenshots)

What do you think to do with those? I'm sure they have to be covered in some way, but in which way? --Grandy02 15:29, 15 May 2009 (EDT)

There is already an article on Mario Family, which isn't really a game, either. There are bits of info on the DSiWare applications on IGN: Calculator, Clock. Would anybody have something against articles on those "games"? Otherwise, I would create stubs for them. --Grandy02 12:13, 16 May 2009 (EDT)

The "games" have been added by another user in the list, and no one has complained, so it might be okay. --Grandy02 09:42, 2 June 2009 (EDT)

Game & Watch[edit]

As confirmed here, Game & Watch games will be released for DSiWare in Japan. I added the two Mario series games Donkey Kong Jr. and Mario's Cement Factory in the list, but now also the other games have been added. The one and only reason that there are articles on those is that they are included in the Mario themed Game & Watch Gallery series. They are not an actual part of the Mario series, so I'm not sure if they should be really in the "List of Mario DSiWare games." What do you think? I also noticed that some non-Mario Game & Watch are handled like "real" Mario games, such as Ball (this game was even released prior to any game starring Mario). --Grandy02 07:23, 12 July 2009 (EDT)

It containts Mario, it stars Mario, it is entirely based around Mario, it's a Mario game. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

3DS Release Dates[edit]

We should add a section stating the release dates on the Nintendo 3DS for these games. Quite a few of them have come out already, so we should get working on it. Mario's Cap.pngSKmarioman SKmarioman refined.png
