Earlier this month, the Super Mario Bros. Movie had a special Los Angeles screening in celebration of its 20th Anniversary. But for the event organisers, the fun doesn’t just stop there. In fact, the movie – which is akin to Marmite – is now getting its very own comic sequel.
Written by Steven Applebaum and Ryan Hoss, and based on discussions by the original scriptwriter for the film, Parker Bennett, the comic picks up from where the film came to a grinding halt. Bennett, speaking in his foreword, says he was ‘hopelessly optimistic’ for a sequel based on a teaser at the end, but when that didn’t come to fruition, he simply moved on. Now, though, the webcomic promises something for the fans of the cult film, and the first sneak-peek can be viewed here. Let us know what you think of the comic in the comments below.
Developer Tecmo Koei has hinted that Pokémon Conquest may be getting a sequel. The game, which is a crossover between the Pokémon and Nobunaga’s Ambition video game series, was released in 2012 for the Nintendo DS, though it was apparently in development even before Nintendo’s latest hand-held console – the Nintendo 3DS – existed.
When asked whether a sequel to the game is coming, Tecmo Koei’s executive vice president, Hisashi Koinuma, hinted that “there was a lot of unfinished material for Pokémon Conquest. …” Do you want a sequel to Pokémon Conquest? Did you enjoy the original game? Let us know in the comments below.
Developer Renegade Kidd’s co-founder, Jools Watsham, has confirmed, via Twitter, that there will be a sequel to Mutant Mudds.
The original Mutant Mudds hit the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS in 2012, and a Wii U version of the platformer, titled Mutant Mudds Deluxe, will launch in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U later this year.
There is a chance that the forthcoming Mutant Mudds 2 will be available in physical form, as Watsham sent out a tweet that read, “RT if you would buy a Mutant Mudds 1 & 2 combo pack on cartridge for 3DS! :),” which has so far received over 60 retweets on the social networking service.

Rich Moore wants Nintendo’s no. 1 mascot, Mario, in the sequel to Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph. Moore is the director of Wreck-It Ralph, so this practically confirms that Mario will make an appearance in the film’s inevitable sequel – if Nintendo approves, of course. Moore is confident that he and his team will conceive a good role for the gaming icon.
“We’ll really come up with something good for Mario to do [in the next film]. To be able to present him in the sequel, would be great”.
A couple days ago, director Tatsuya Kando promised that Square Enix is working on new developments for The World Ends With You but didn’t specify what they are. Based on an image that was first seen toward the end of the credits of the iOS version of the game, a sequel to The World Ends With You is supposedly confirmed to be in development. Which platform(s) do you think the sequel will be for?
Square Enix’s The World Ends With You may be getting a sequel. The publisher is teasing a new game by featuring character designs from The World Ends With You on its website. The Japanese phrase “Subaseka” is in the URL, which hints that the teased game will be related to The World Ends With You. Because the original game is exclusive to Nintendo DS, perhaps a sequel will be coming to Nintendo 3DS.
Although Wii U exclusive title ZombiU is currently in developement, developer Ubisoft has ideas for a sequel to the upcoming survival horror game.

As Charles Martinet was signing autographs during San Diego Comic-Con, a fan revealed that his favorite Mario game is Nintendo GameCube’s Super Mario Sunshine.
