Behold, Japan's Supernatural Cat Festival

Every year, the Tokyo neighbourhood of Kagurazaka plays host to the Supernatural Cat Festival, a celebration of feline friends that involves a whole ton of people dressing up as cats then marching down the street playing music.

Superstar Mario modder Kaze Emanuar, whose work we’ve featured here a ton, has a huge new project out today: Super Mario 64 Land, an all-new Mario game based on Super Mario 64 that adds new levels, new bosses, new powerups and new music.

There’s a catch—it’s technically a mod for Super Mario 64, not a full standalone executable, so you’ll need a ROM to play it—but whatever, that’s an easy...
