You Can Never Have Enough Mario, Despite Bogus Claims From The Press

Chris Buffa (Modojo): Recently, members of the video game press have been obsessed with the notion of Nintendo threatening to damage Mario's appeal by releasing too many titles starring its fictional plumber, where somehow, the fact that Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7 and New Super Mario Bros. 2 (with New Super Mario Bros. U hitting shelves November 18) debuting in less than a year will cheapen the brand and wind up hurting the publisher's bottom line. The result has been articles calling Nintendo desperate. It's the sort of thing that makes us wonder if our peers pay attention to history at all. (3DS, Culture, Mario Kart 7, New Super Mario Bros Wii, New Super Mario Bros., New Super Mario Bros. 2, New Super Mario Bros. U)
