From the camera angle, it looks like it's gonna be single player again. Slightly disappointed, but also excited because this opens up the level design possibilities. Definitely excited, and it being 3D Mario guarantees that it'll be amazing. Also noticing no item boxes, and what looked like a spinning heart? So we health bar now?
Looks like it's running under UE4 or UE3. Also, that one scene where Mario is walking into a town makes me think of Samba de Amigo and then we have Mario collecting, gold rings?!? Are they collaborating with Sega?
A Mario game with a nice hub and Galaxy or 3D World-esque focused level design is basically my perfect Mario game. The setting looks great too. It's also nice to have some elements of a distinct setting.
I was hoping for a single player mario game with a unique look, this looks a lot like what you'd expect from a 3D Mario game (Land/World). Kinda disapointed but the cactus people are keeping me hopeful, at least they're not Toads.
It'd be interesting to see Tokyo EPD's take on that style of game. The design of the sand level looks a lot more busy than something I'd expect out of 64 or Sunshine, which is more than fine by me, but it's only a glimpse of 1 level.
l'm satisfied. lt already has a thousand times more personality than 3D World (a sense of place and NPCs in a 3D Mario??? What is this tomfoolery), the triple jump is back and apparently there's no run button. l'm excited to see more.
I'm just slightly concerned about how they don't show Mario running left or right. But there are items to the right and left (gold rings on one side, hearts on the other), so presumably this hasn't devolved into an auto-runner or whatever.
