Will this have any actual new levels, or did they just pack some of the old levels in to this?

@ pie4prez - Yeah I've been wondering the same exact thing. If that's the case, I might by it in the future, maybe. But I don't have the money for more points. I have 600 points. But anyway, it looks like the same levels. If you watch the trailer, there's a boss fight where the minis get shot out of a cannon to hit DK, and that was in the original. So my assumption is that. Which is a shame.

No, the levels are clearly new. Not only are there new levels, there are new game mechanics as well:

  • Pink blocks are now placed individualy by the look of things,
  • Some levels appear to feature a Key that must be retrieved before being able to exit (a la Mario vs DK 1)
  • Coins and now special M coins appear to act differently
  • Not all levels appear to have MINI MARIO cards, in favour of what appears to be some other single card :)

Not to mention the fact that some screenshots feature Pokeys. Were there Pokeys in the original? I don't think so? Furthermore, many of the screenshots feature mini Peaches, Toads and DKs tat need to be rescued. This MAY be simply showing off the level editor or it may mean that now not all of the levels are full of Mini Marios!

The Boss battles, as I said, appear identical. Which is sad, but I think I'll deal. :)

Well, the weekend is dang near gone now and my vacation is over, but not to fear cause tomorrow is Monday and we get this great game tomorrow AND Im stoping by my local Gamestop to pick up my copy of Legendary Starfy is I get off work in time. Hopefully so, that is if they have a extra copy cause I went in and bought a couple of games and FORGOT to preorder over the excitment that I found a copy of Blue Dragon Plus New for 20 bucks. So here is tomorrow, start of another great Nintendo week. Man I love a good Nintendo week.

Heh, well I keep flip flopping on my speculation with this oneā€¦ I just re-watched the (god awful) presentation Cammie did for this game at E3, and either they did a REALLY bad job at selling the levels it comes with, or the levels it comes with are negligible.

I'm like a kid in a candy store. it's time for me to just sit back and wait for the reviews to start rolling in to answer all these questions I think. :)

My thoughts are--I'm buying it. Never got March of the Minis, but own the first on GBA, so I figure this is the perfect product for me.

I'd say it's definitely worth it from what I've just played, but these are merely first impressions. It looks like there are sixty stages for the game, including six boss stages. While the game does borrow a lot of assets from Mario vs Donkey Kong 2, some of the gameplay is different. You actually have lives now. When one of your Minis goes kaput in the regular stages you lose a live. Not sure how big of an effect the game over screen will have since you can retry the same level with five new lives.

Finishing levels, on the other hand, could get a bit tricker. In MvDK2 you simply lost points when you didn't chain your minis together. Here a timer goes up when your first mini reaches the exit. If the next one doesn't reach it in time the gate closes, you lose, and you have to restart the level.

Tested the online feature and it looks to be close to what was there before, but this time you can store up to 140 stages, yours and/or others'. Looks like Nintendo will be supplying additional stages here as well, as there are already five available from them.

Edit: Before I forget: you have much less control over the minis this time around. While you could change direction, start and stop, and make your minis jump before, now you can only start them, so there's a good bit more thinking involved. You still can manipulate some of the environment though.

AND NO DLC!!! Free, infinitely-expandable content! Unreal 3 and Little Big Planet must have taught some things to the world!! Maybe this'll inspire the Blast Works community to start making good levels/models again? I miss the way that game was when it came out....sooo much cool online content all the time, plus an actual use for WiiConnect24.

So you can freely browse levels made by others, without Friend Codes? If so, I wonder if they screen them first, as I'm sure you could draw something profane in the structure of the level.

No friend codes needed. Not sure how well you can browse the list though as there were practically no stages up, for obvious reasons. There's also a report button so it looks like users flag inappropriate stages.

Anyone notice that Nintendo included a warning about stopping the online service at any time with no prior notice? :O

Come on Nintendo. Work out your management issues. There's no reason why these services can't stay up for a decade or so. Or at least the life of the console.

I just purchased it and have to say it's great. Lot of content for eight bucks. I'm loving the game so far, with the level editor and online community hands-down being the best features.

Now, hold up, maybe this question has been asked several times before, but is it worth the download if you already have Mario Vs. Donkey Kong 2? Because I do have that one.
