I cant wait. I was actually looking back at the original 3d world ot, from back when i was just a lurker on gaf. Still cant believe what a great day that was. 3d world, link between worlds, and xbox one on the same day.

3d world is the first game i bought with my “then-new” wii u back in early 2014. I bought the system for mario kart 8 but the gamestop
By me was sold out of it, i had to go to a different one. But i did get 3d world. Its still my favorite 3d Mario game. Playing through nearly the entire game cooperatively with my buddy is one of my favorite gaming memories

picking up my cat mario and cat peach amiibos from best buy as well tomorrow

Online play is gonna make me double dip on this one

Fingers crossed it runs better than Mario Maker 2's online. If anyone getting it at launch is able to post impressions of the online multi that'd be greatly appreciated

Apparently the Bowser's Fury part of the game is around 3 hours in length, 5-6 if you go for 100% completion. I think that's pretty much what everyone expected, but I just can't see myself paying full price for that.

Nonetheless, I'm still quite interested and I'll be keeping an eye on this for sure.

For anyone who has this, are motion controls absolutely required? No option to turn them off?

Pretty sure I already know the answer to this, being a nintendo game. But, I await the day they surprise me.

no options to turn it off. Atleast from what i have played. Using them is a pain in the dick.

What type of motion controls are we looking at ?
Personally hate most games that require them amd most likely skipping this game , it’s a shame because it looks great.

Played this to completion on wiiu, will do it again after some backlog. Best mario game ive played since smb3/smw. Wish more of the marios took on the smb2/3dworld 4 character cast choice. It's my favorite part of this game and really adds to the replay/platforming value.

I can't wait to replay one of my favorite games of all time.

Probably my favorite Mario game besides 3 and SMG1.

1080p and speed bump will be worth it alone.

Bowser's Fury and (hopefully good) online are bonuses.

Nice OT. I will be playing this at midnight for sure (diving right into Bowsers Fury). One of the best Mario games ever!

You guys are gonna love this! You can collect these stamps to post on miiverse and...oh....wait...nvm
Kinda off-topic but I remember in the early days of this game some savage posted something horrible to MiiVerse about his "big smelly dick", and I happened to end up reading it while posting something else.

I mean c'mon bro.

But I did like Miiverse.

Yeah actually there were hilariously spicy miiverse posts that were just ridiculously funny. And I remember a post with cat mario overlooking the mushroom kingdom saying "one day Simba, all this will be yours"

Played a bit and Bowsers Fury is pretty cool I guess. But man. I am definitely noticing those frame rate drops, doesn’t feel like a polished Mario experience at all.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s fun, but you can feel the lack of polish. Now whether this has to do with COVID or whatever, I’m not sure. I even experienced some weird (and very noticeable ) stuttering in the first level of the base game. Maybe that was just a fluke because I just played that one level but... WTF?

How is the soundtrack on 3D World? I'm so tired of the "OO OO BAH BAH" type music from the last several 2d Mario games.

Fury def feels like a weird Odyssey expansion. It even has a similar map screen.

3D runs and looks as gorgeous as ever. I see Ree’ers and other internet dweebs crying about how awkward the speedier characters are but I’m lovin it. No more changing gears when running around 🥳

Just got it, played the 1st world. I so much appreciate Nintendo's focus on going to gameplay ASAP and not giving me 10 minutes of exposition.

Mario-cat is fun, my daughter will go bananas for that.

It feels lonely and empty without all the Wii U messages and drawings throughout the game. Reminds me of playing Demon's Souls after the servers shut down.

Okay i want to clarify my previous question, does both 3d World AND bowser's fury require the motion controls?

Motion controls for what? If there are any, I'm sure thry can be turned off like in Galaxy.
