Super Mario Cereal from Kellogg’s makes breakfast a playful experience

With Super Mario™ Cereal, Nintendo and Kellogg’s® have teamed up to take
fans on a breakfast odyssey that will continue long after the cereal box
is empty. In addition to collectible Super
Mario Odysse
y™ box
art, each Super Mario Cereal box functions as an amiibo™
accessory, making breakfast a more playful experience.

“This powered-up partnership with Kellogg’s is another exciting way for
us to expand the Nintendo brand in unique and creative ways,” said Tom
Prata, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Strategic
Initiatives. “We are always looking for new opportunities to bring
smiles to people of all ages, and this is a fun way to kick off the day.”

The limited-edition cereal box will begin hitting store shelves across
the U.S. as early as Dec. 11. Those playing the Super Mario Odyssey
game can tap the cereal box on the Nintendo
Switch
™ system, like you would an amiibo, to receive gold coins or a
heart in the game. Even the cereal itself has a Super Mario twist, with
colorful power-up marshmallows and a blast of mixed berry flavor in
every box.

“We are thrilled to pack so much fun into one box of cereal,” said Brad
Schwan, Senior Director of Morning Foods Marketing. “The package adds
value and excitement for fans, with marshmallow shapes in the cereal
inspired by Super Mario power-ups to tie the theme together.”

SNES Classic news: Super Nintendo stock update as new Mini device nears release | Gaming | Entertainment

SNES Classic news this week includes a big stock update for fansNINTENDO

SNES Classic news this week includes a big stock update for fans

The SNES Classic Mini remains a very sought after commodity, especially heading towards the holiday sales season.

It was recently confirmed that the SNES Classic Mini outsold the PS4 and Xbox One in the month of October.

According to the latest NPD Group information, the Nintendo Switch was the top selling console last month in the United States, with the SNES Mini taking second place.

And if you think how limited Super Nintendo stock has been over the past few months, you can see how popular the Mini retro device is proving.

And for those who are still looking, there have been a few updates this week.

The most recent retailer to include SNES Classic stock has been Tesco, who recently updated their website with new units.

According to Stock Informer, the latest batch of Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Edition stock Tesco Direct had lasted for almost an hour.

Considering SNES Classic Mini stock usually gets snapped up within a few minutes, that’s a healthy amount of time for stock to remain available to buy.

The SNES Classic Mini has come in and out of stock at Tesco Direct a few times already this week, so it’s worth keeping an eye on their website in case stock becomes available again.

And For those who are lucky enough to own both a SNES Classic Mini and a Nintendo Switch, the perfect device is being released very soon.

A new games controller is being launched that will reportedly be compatible for both gaming machines, making it easier to switch between the two.

8Bitdo are releasing their SF30 Pro Controller soon, which can be used to play games on Nintendo Switch, Windows, macOS, & Android platforms.

“The SN30 Pro is the world’s first, fully featured retro controller,” the official site description reads.

“It boasts a full button set with clickable joysticks, rumble vibration², motion controls, wireless bluetooth, rechargeable battery, home and screen shot buttons, and a USB-C connector. Not to mention a proper d-pad.

“8Bitdo controllers are designed to be as versatile as possible with each of your modern devices. Easily pair your controller as an X-input or D-input device via bluetooth. 

“You can even use it as a wired USB controller with the included USB cable. We’re regularly updating the firmware with new system compatibility like the Nintendo Switch, Raspberry Pi, Retron5 and more.”

While the SNES Classic Mini is not listed among the compatible devices, that may be because an 8Bitdo retro receiver will be needed for wireless play.

This will also help to remove the issue with the existing wired controllers being a little on the short side for those who own a SNES Classic.

Buy Apple because iPhone X will lead to a ‘super long cycle’ for the company, analyst says

Apple’s innovative features in the new iPhone X this year will pay dividends for years, according to one Wall Street firm.

Piper Jaffray reiterated its overweight rating for the smartphone maker, predicting Apple will benefit from rolling out better displays and 3D sensors to the rest of its iPhone product line next year.

“Apple may be increasingly well positioned to experience a strong multi-year iPhone trajectory, not the short-lived ‘super cycle’ that was anticipated,” analyst Michael Olson wrote in a note to clients Thursday titled “Why AAPL Can Keep Working: ‘Super Cycle’ Is Now ‘Super Long Cycle.'” “We believe an elongated iPhone cycle in FY18, followed by a wider array of iPhone X ‘offspring’ in Fall-18, along with growing awareness and interest in augmented reality (fueled by developers populating app store with new use cases and, longer-term, addition of rear facing 3D sensor), will all push out the need for Apple to answer the question of ‘what’s next?'”

Olson reiterated his $200 price target for Apple shares, representing 18 percent upside to Wednesday’s close.

The analyst expects Apple will release three iPhones next year with the X’s better OLED displays. In addition, he notes 3D sensing component suppliers are being asked to increase their volume by three times next year, according to the firm’s checks.

“IPhone X ‘offspring’ can expand upgrade interest to a larger portion of iPhone Users in Fall-18,” he wrote. “As options for the ‘X’ generation iPhone expand, the ‘shots on goal’ for upgrading increases.”

Apple is one of the market’s best-performing large-cap stocks so far this year. Its shares have rallied 46 percent through Wednesday versus the S&P 500’s 17 percent gain.

The company’s stock rose 0.8 percent Thursday after the report.

Apple’s iPhone X launched on Nov. 3 at a base model price of $999.

Marshmallow mushrooms for breakfast? Only in the rumored Super Mario Cereal

Cereal has a long history of partnering with licensed franchises. Even today, Kellogg’s offers children the choice of Disney Princess or Despicable Me Minion Made cereal. It’s been 28 years since Nintendo filled our cereal bowls with the Nintendo Cereal System, but rumors suggest that Nintendo and Kellogg have teamed up for a new Super Mario Cereal.

According to cereal news and review blog Cerealously, Mario may be getting his own marshmallow cereal. Supposedly through some expert digital sleuthing, the writer stumbled upon multiple references to a Super Mario Cereal from Kellogg’s, including the box art below. Like much other licensed cereal, it appears to pair pieces with colored marshmallow shapes. In line with the Mario theme, the mixed berry cereal appears to be star-shaped with marshmallows shaped like Super Mushrooms, 1-up Mushrooms, and question-mark Blocks.

Rumored box art for Super Mario Cereal

In addition to acting as a sugary breakfast, certain boxes of Super Mario Cereal reportedly come with amiibo support. This means that Nintendo Switch owners playing Super Mario Odyssey could use the cereal box as an amiibo.

Adding some legitimacy to this rumor is a message one of Cerealously’s readers received from Kellogg’s cereal. Without concrete evidence from where the quote comes from, this should be taken with a pinch of salt.

“We cerealously appreciate your continued interest in seeing a Nintendo cereal, Chris! We hope you’ll keep an eye out for the new Super Mario Cereal that is hitting store shelves now. This star-shaped cereal features Super Mario-inspired marshmallows, and a limited number of packages will have an Amiibo powerup sticker that can be used on the Super Mario Odyssey game with the Nintendo Switch gaming console. We also appreciate your additional feedback regarding classic cereal favorites, and thanks for taking the time to write!”

Nintendo has been out of the cereal market for nearly 30 years. Children of the 1980s might remember Donkey Kong for its “crunchy barrels of fun” or the Nintendo Cereal System. The latter is better remembered for featuring both Super Mario Brosand Zelda themed cereals, coming with fruity and berry flavors split between two bags.
