@ PoorVGameNerd

don't you see why it is that way?

Mr Shigeru Miyamoto dont make them anymore.

Dont know if i'll get this one.
Does anyone know if its cheaper on eshop

It won't be any cheaper on eShop. Nintendo has already said a few months ago that digital downloads will cost the same as their retail counterparts. They say that the value of it being with you at all times, is equivalent to the value of the box/cart/manual of a retail release.

What do you mean he doesn't make them anymore? He was the "General Producer" for Super Mario Galaxy 2, the same title he had in the credits for New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Twilight Princess. He's still involved. He even served as the "General Producer" for Super Mario 3D Land. He might not have pitched the idea for the game but he certainly ran with it. Here's what he had to say about his involvement with that game:

@PoorVGameNerd, I'm not sure exactly what he meant, but Miyamoto doesn't full on make Mario games anymore. He's a supervisor, so yes he's involved but not as much as he used to be. It's the same case with Zelda. His opinions usually rule out all others when it comes to making those two series, but he isn't directing them anymore.

@ the two people above me:
Exactly. Miyamoto hasn't really designed the bulk of any game in a LONG time, even Super Mario Bros. 3 was crafted by a large team headed by Miyamoto-san. So I don't think the claim that "he is not making them anymore" is a legitimate answer to why the four New Super Mario Bros. games have been so alike.

from what I understand, even compared to how he doesn't completely "make" games like he did early on, he had little to do with the latest Mario or Zeldas and was there to make sure the new guys in charge can do as good a job. Basically. I'm sure there's much more to it though. The only confirmed upcoming games he honestly has anything to do with are Luigi's Mansion 2 and Pikmin 3 (and spoilers, outside of the consistently brilliant Paper Mario series, those are probably the best upcoming Nintendo sequels).

Your opinion budday

Heeey so as much as I love talking about Miyamoto, let's get back to New Super Mario Bros. 2.
I still can't get over the missed Wario opportunity. Like Koopalings? Seriously? Its not cool anymore. Just like the Tanooki suit. Its neat to bring back an old Mario thing once, but when you do it again its not nostalgic, its just redudant.

MIyamoto mentioned on IGN that his favorite Super mario bros title(s)of all time were SMB2(blushes*) and SMB1. The man's got good taste!
I just wish he were more involved in these newer SMB titles...

PoorVGameNerd

He definitely meant Super Mario Bros. USA. I think I remember reading he was more involved with the development of Doki Doki Panic/Mario USA than he was with Mario 2/Lost Levels

Must of! That was 2 years ago. But it's odd, because i remember Miyamoto mentioning in an interview that he felt Super Mario World felt like it was lacking something....I could of sworn it was related to the stage design itself.

@Retro_on_the_go

Yup! Doki Doki Panic SMB2.

Here's the Article > http://ca.ign.com/articles/2012/06/15/this-is-shigeru-miyamot...

From Miyamoto >

"I guess as a developer that might have to be the very first Super Mario game, for me, because I have so many memories tied up in it," Mr. Miyamoto told us. "Perhaps as a player, I might go for what was, at least in Japan, we referred to it as Super Mario USA, which was a game that just had a very different sort of feel. I think we had such a loose approach to it, we really came up with something interesting."

"I think the Mario games of that type are really in the hands of Mr. Tezuka at this point," Mr. Miyamoto said. "Because he didn't work on that one in particular, that was one I worked on, he doesn't have memories of developing it that he would draw on to re-create concepts in the New Super Mario Bros. series now, from that game in particular."

Yeah! That's exactly what I thought! I didn't really like the look of it at the Nintendo Direct, but now, its my desktop wallpaper (The new image that was on nintendolife today )
I have a few gifs of the game (nothing new, but they're cool) if you want to see them (or use them as your nintendolife pic )

I do agree that they need to change up several things. Wario would have been a much better villain, especially considering the gold theme they went with for this game. I will say though, to my knowledge they aren't bringing the Tanooki suit back again. They are bringing back the Raccoon suit. They are similar, very similar, but not the necessarily the same. Ironically, both of the suits, despite being so similar both in look and function, originated in Super Mario Bros. 3.

@Ecto-1, yeah I know they're different. I just think since the Tanooki suit could do the same thing as the Raccoon suit and more in SMB. 3, it just seems more of the same now. The only thing I like that they're bringing back about it is being able to fly in a sidescroller Mario game. Which yes, the Raccoon suit accomplished, but we just brought back a SMB. 3 powerup. I'd love for Nintendo to draw inspiration from something like Super Mario Bros. 2, (having to do with the "2" in the title) or Super Mario Land 2 : 6 Golden Coins (for its potential Wario storyline, and it being about coins in a way)

Sometimes I just feel with these New Super Mario Bros. games, that there's so many missed opportunities. Why can't Nintendo try something new with this series for once? Pun intended

Trying to get your money as efficiently as possible is at least thematically appropriate on this occasion. That was probably their reasoning.

Well yes from a business pount of view it was a good decision, as they still got my money - but it reduces my faith in Nintendo's future products, and wont help their sales from me in the long run.

I make Pixel Art on occasion, and sometimes sell them as Game Assets.
