The 'Shroom:Issue 123/Pipe Plaza
Hello readers! As I'm sure you've noticed by now, we've gone all Wario themed for this issue. Now, believe it or not, but Wario plays a big part in Pipe Plaza, mainly because he's currently stuck in one of the pipes, and we've been unable to get him out. I do apologise that this is slightly later than usual, but sadly I haven't had a lot of time to work on this this month. I was either doing a work experience placement, or trapped in a place with no internet, which for a 21st century kid is a fate worse than death!
Sadly, our second favourite Yoshi has retired from The 'Shroom. Paper Yoshi (talk) has a great asset to the paper, and we must remember how he ran Pipe Plaza very well for many years. He was great contributor, boss, and most importantly friend. We had a small banter when we co-edited together, and I wish him the very best in life. He will be sorely missed from our pages.
We may not have gotten as much votes as we did last month, but we still got plenty of votes in our Polls have opened for favourite sub-team, so do remember to vote Pipe Plaza. We were within inches of second place last time, let's aim for there before we begin trying to take down Fake News, I know we can do it.

Tip of the Month
Something that can be confusing to new members of the Wiki is the Proposals page. Have an idea to propose and not sure where to put it? If it's a small edit, like moving a page or merging two pages together, then you can put it on the Talk page of the article you wish to alter. You can keep track of the deadlines for these type of proposals on the list of Talk page proposals on the main Proposals page. Want to suggest a major change that can alter the way the Wiki works? That's the type of thing to put on the main Proposals page, under the category that it fits best.
Welcome to Community Report! It shows our the latest goings-ons around the Super Mario Wiki – the promotions, the demotions, the recently passed and ongoing proposals.
NOTE:All stats and figures included in this section were correct as of June 11th.
That's all for this issue of Community Report. See you again next month.
Hello! Welcome to New Articles. I’m here with an up to date about all the new articles created within the past month. So, we got plenty of new articles this month and that’s great. Be sure to keep in mind Super Mario Wiki’s Manual of Style when you create an article.
Greetings, everyone, and holy dang that E3! So many awesome games revealed and shown off this past week, from another Warriors game, AM2R Returns, Go, Go, Stretchy Arms, more of the anime Pokémon fights, and, of course, the main event staring the big man himself, Super Mario Galaxy 3! Please note that I love all these games and I'm poking fun at them because I love them.
We got little tidbits of Super Mario Odyssey after its initial reveal with the Nintendo Switch back in October, but E3 hit us hard with a bunch of new information! Firstly, if you didn't already know, Odyssey aims to bring back the platforming days of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine. What that means is that the worlds are large and have several different things in it with multiple areas to explore, unlike Super Mario Galaxy's broken up planets with linear progress. Whether that's your cup of tea or not is entirely up to you. However, while the game may be based on the one that helped shape the 3D platforming industry, it also looks like something entirely new.
Let's take a look at Mario's newest ability in Odyssey: possessing creatures and objects! Want Mario to become a Goomba? You can! Want Mario to become a taxi? You can! Want Mario to become a tyrannosaurus rex? You absolutely can! Mario's newest ally, called Cappy, allows Mario to possess a majority of the living creatures or inanimate objects in the worlds to help solve puzzles or to simply get to where he needs to go. Not sure how far to an extent this newfound ability can go (I'm guessing you can't possess Bowser, for example), but it certainly opens up new horizons.
Cappy can be used for more than just taking control of unwilling subjects, he can be helpful in platforming and battles, too! Throwing him will cause him to act like a boomerang, reaching a set distance then returning to Mario, damaging any enemies in his path. He can also be held in mid-air and act as a supporting platform, or to use to collect Coins. That's one cool cap! He can also be thrown using the motion controls, which effects how he performs! One more feature of Cappy's, that also extends to Mario himself, are various costumes. Purchasing them with the currency found in each respective world and going back to your giant cap spaceship to change will give our heroes a different look, without affecting their abilities at all. ...As far as we know, anyway. That may change between now and the time the game is released. The game is also compatible with amiibo, which will unlock other outfits, possibly at random. There will also be three more amiibo based on the formal attire of Mario, Peach, and Bowser (add that to the new Metroid and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions amiibo and, well, there goes my nonexistent paycheck).
Speaking of the giant cap spaceship, that appears to be Mario's main method of getting around. Sometime after Bowser kidnaps Princess Peach and forces her to marry him (again), Mario meets up with Cappy, who I assume provides Mario with the ship he needs. But the ship appears to missing some fuel and is currently resting in New Donk City. Can you guess what power source that is? Well, if you guessed Power Stars, you'd be wrong. Instead, the primary collectables appear to be called Power Moons. They act in mostly the same way, except it appears that instead of getting forced out of the level, there's a certain number to collect in each world you can collect all in one go! That'll make things go by faster. There's a certain number of Power Moons that are needed to be collected before you can go on to another world, as only by collecting enough of them can you actually power the ship and cause it to go anywhere. The worlds, by the way, are large. Very large. The apparent hub world of New Donk City (which is apparently run by none other than Mario's original love interest, Pauline) is full of buildings, the desert is frozen over, and the forest is full of construction drones.
A lot of new info was dropped during E3, and it just makes me want to play this game more! While it was developed based on Super Mario 64 rather than Super Mario Galaxy, it appears to be more of a mixture of both (kinda like how Super Mario 3D Land was a mixture of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Bros. 3). Assuming I can get a Nintendo Switch by then, I'll definitely pick up this game when it releases in October, or I can get the inevitable Switch bundle that could release then or during Christmas. Until next time! I'll leave you with this disturbing image.

We have already covered one of Coincollector's sections before, so we won't have to go into much detail, in fact I believe it was a Mario Kart: Wheel Tips Corner that we covered as well. I thought I'd put a little background into why I chose this particular section. It's because this month, I faced the same issue as Coincollector, with time being incredibly short. I probably could have improved some of my sections, and maybe it would have been better if I'd done with Coincollector had done instead in Issue XLIV.
