This season’s Nintendo Direct was a bit of an oddball, revealing the release date for a remaster first unveiled in a rival showcase, and welcoming back an electric detective from his unexplained hiatus of several years.The presentation concluded with the announcement of an all-new (new, not "New") Super Mario Bros. game wielding the whimsical title of Super Mario Bros. Wonder. Formally, this was the caketopper of the Direct, but ask anyone who watched the Direct as it unfurled in real time, and we’ll tell you that its real show-stopper, jaw-dropper, icing-on-the-cake-topper was in fact not so much the Wonder trailer, but the triumphant debut of one trunk-swinging little guy whom we’ve all collectively taken to calling Elephant Mario.
