Director’s Notes

Super Mario Bros. (talk)

Hello everyone. SMB here. I just want to thank everybody who put a lot of hard work into the Pipe Plaza for the thirteen months I've been a director of the team (which is also how long the team has existed). I've been elected as the Director of The 'Shroom, so the team will be left in the hands of Marioguy1, who has done a fantastic job co-directing with me for the past year.

So yes... Once again, thanks to everybody who made this section possible; whether your contribution was supporting the team's creation, writing sections, coming up with new ideas... you all made it possible for this team to be successful. I'm sure MG1 will also continue his great leadership over this section, and I wish him luck. Thank you everybody.

Ohai guyz! It’s MG1 here for the co-director’s notes! Rather, for the director’s notes as I am now the sole director of this team! And congratulations to SMB, I’m sure he will make an excellent ‘shroom director! I will be remaining in the position of Pipe Plaza director for all you fans of the section <3

Anyways, congrats SMB, we still need more writers, oh yes, also, SMB put together this issue of the Pipe Plaza so I’ll thank him for that. Now, goodbye everyone and read on!

Tip of the Month (FunkyK38 (talk))

Tip of the Month: When fixing small errors like grammar or spelling in an article, make all your small edits and then save it as a minor edit. This will help clear up the server and recent changes page.

Upcoming Games (Paper Yoshi (talk))

Hello 'Shroom readers! After being absent from the previous seven issues, the Upcoming Games section is back! In this issue, we'll take a general look at the next Mario game, Mario Sports Mix.

Mario Sports Mix, as the name says, is a sports spin-off game. It features four sports: basketball, volleyball, hockey and dodgeball. The game is heavily influenced by Mario Hoops 3-on-3, as both were developed by Square Enix.

Mario Sports Mix has 19 playable characters. These include the Final Fantasy characters from Mario Hoops 3-on-3 and Slime, from the Dragon Quest series. Players can also choose their customized Miis. Both hockey and dodgeball have supporting characters. Shy Guys appear as the goalies on hockey, while colored Yoshis (red or blue, depending on the team) stay at the back of the court in dodgeball.

All of the sports feature common gameplay from the Mario spin-offs: items can be obtained by touching ? Panels, and each character has his/her unique special ability, which can prove very useful during the matches.

Release dates for Mario Sports Mix:

  • Japan: Released on November 25th
  • Europe: January 28th
  • United Kingdom: February 4th
  • North America: February 7th
  • Australia: confirmed for 2011

And that's all for now, folks! We'll dig deeper into each sport in the next issue. See you then!

NIWA News (RAP (talk))

Good day fellow MarioWikians, I'm RAP (talk), and this is NIWA News - where you can get the news between the last Shroom issue, and this Shroom issue. It's January folks, and not a lot of activity is going on mainly due to the holiday break; a time where people are taking their advantage of breaks from school, visiting their family relatives, and playing piles of video games...and I mean a lot! Despite that, a decent amount of activity has been made. Not much, but decent enough to report the latest news:

  • As you may, or may not know - Metroid Wiki is finally back up! Let the Metroid info continue to flow!
  • WikiBound has moved info a new web address, it's now named; and along with it is a new skin! Credit to Tina Eidelis for concept idea, and dkpat for assembling the idea using CSS.
  • ZeldaWiki has reached a milestone of one million views on The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword!
  • A team of editors on the NIWA forums have joined together to form 'The CrossWiki' team. They're a team of volunteers who intend to help other NIWA wikis who are in need. For more info about this: visit the NintendoWiki page. Note that the team is not endorsed by NIWA.

Somewhat slow yes? Thank you for reading fellow MarioWikian or guest.
