I feel like this might the same as DS and Wii of 2006. The DS with a 3D Mario game the year before and a 2D Mario during 06, while the Wii's first Mario game revealed at E3 as a 3D game that releases the year after. A 2D Mario game for 3DS was announced for this year, so Super Mario Wii U might release next year instead of launch.

I'm telling you guys prepare for your quickly and cheaply made along side the identical 3DS version to which it has connectivity 2D Mario packaged in with the console cash grab.

Maybe with a similarly quick and cheap touch screen using Duck Hunt remake to go with it.

If they keep the NSMB aesthetic I'll cry on the inside. To me that's Mario dressed up as a coked up trick. And two Toads? You gotta be shitting me. Not worthy of canon.

I hope they realize that those games didn't sell because they looked and sounded outrageously bland, they sold because they provided the classic Mario formula, and unbelievably, they were the first new 2D Mario games Nintendo released for handheld or console in 14 and 18 freaking years, respectively

Catch them at the beginning and give them a consistent message throughout and they will be happy.

man, is it sad I was almost giving Nintendo the benefit of the doubt to think they had one less Mario game announced? I should always know that when in doubt, always go with more Mario being true :/

I feel like an unqualified consumer whore to need to say "I'll play it I guess", but I hope it's something a bit less by-the-numbers than NSMB, and a bit more novel from a setting perspective.

If the 3DS game is this year, then this would probably be next year at the earliest.

I'm guessing it will be a cross-platform New Super Mario Bros. Mii. But that's okay because Wii U will still get its awesome EAD Tokyo 3D Mario at some point.

Wait, the confirmation of Pikmin being there for sure isn't new? Kotaku went further and contacted Nintendo for the response confirming Pikmin will be there, not just that it's in development (which we all know).

EDIT: Derp, didn't see other thread. No wonder people stopped posting here for a minute :lol

Bleesh.

What you call simple I call more on the fly with the platforming.

Times like this I feel that the desire for more depth at the expense of action (or vice versa) is misplaced.

Wow at all the asumptions being made preclaiming it to not be a NSMB title. New Super Mario Bros. Mii just as I was thinking it was going to be. NSMBW was very successful after all and they already had a working version of it in HD.

It's going to look exactly as it did last E3 too, HD NSMB Wii.

Aesthetically it's uninspired sure, but everything else is nothing short of great. Hell, if half the games we got this gen were as "ugly" as NSMBW it would've been much less boring. I'm not saying it looks gorgeous, just think there's a great deal of exaggeration going around.
EDIT: Also, judging the ambition of a title based on the art direction alone considering what the game did especially on the multiplayer front doesn't seem right.

I replayed the entirety of NSMBW with a friend weeks ago and it was as powerful as the first time, so I'm ready.

But indeed, I don't know what they are doing with these two 2d Mario.
It's impossible that they are two different new 2d platform games in the same classic way.
But I don't know too what can be the two smash bros.
So we can guess two really different experiences or they will be something highly tied up.

Is it a Super Mario game or a Super Mario Bros game? One is 3D and the other is 2D, it is mentioned both ways in the article. I have said before that I think the first Mario game on Wii U would be 3D because it would show off the graphics the best, which in turn might wow some people and help get an install base.

A 2D Mario will end up selling more long-term, but it wouldn't really take advantage of a newer powerful console, plus you are probaly better of making a 2D game after you have the install base, because of that I would say they should wait till 2014 before a 2D Mario hits Wii U, if they launch with a 2D game it could be a while before they even have 20-30M Wii U's in the households to buy it.

I'm pumped either way, though.

It's not ugly just bland. Personally I was more refering to their ambition. Super Mario Bros. 3 and SMW were very ambitious and tried to do different things with the 2D Mario formula and advance it. NSMB is focused on offering old experiences and throwbacks.

I think it is a good game and probably the most refined of the 2D platformers but I personally wish they went more outside their comfort range and tried pushing forward more. I don't see that happening though due to how gigantic the NSMB series is. Much like how they haven't really done it with Mario Kart due to it's high sales.

If they made a New Super Mario Bros game based on Super Mario Bros 2 gameplay, I'd buy a thousand WiiUs.

NSMB is so underrated, you can't duplicate 2D platformers.

All they need to do is jazz up the effects and backgrounds and general visuals and it'll be day 1.
