Honestly, I would prefer Nintendo to scrap the New Super Mario Bros. style, but still make a new 2D Mario Platformer, with the game going back to the series's roots and building off from them in a different way. I think it would be awesome if the game could be more in the spirit of Super Mario World as well.

Here's a novel idea, what if instead of another New SMB Nintendo does what they did with New SMB in the first place again. Remember New SMB at the time was Nintendo taking the modern/"New" Mario and dropping him in a 2D game. A new coat of paint for a style of game they hadn't done in a while. Not unlike what they recently did with Samus Returns. The issue with New SMB is that they then made three sequels.

So maybe instead of another New SMB Nintendo made another game with the same idea as they originally had. Why not make another 2D Kid Icarus? Why not invent an entirely new IP and make a modern take on a classic style game out of that? Or take one of their existing characters and build a new style of game around that like they did with Captain Toad and Kirby's Epic Yarn.

I'd like to see any of those ideas over another New SMB.

I hope the Super Mario Bros. series comes to Switch soon. The sales of the “New” games really command it happen. I enjoy the Super Mario series and am hyped for Odyssey but the Super Mario Bros. series is absolute tops for me

Let's be honest though. We all just want Super Mario Bros/World Mania . I mean, Mario Maker means they probably shouldn't do a simple "old graphics, new game" format, but some higher quality sprites you'd see in the 32 bit era that Nintendo ignored. Or something like that.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

@kkslider5552000 The first level should totally be SMB 1-1, the Green Hill Zone of Mario

@skywake There's brilliant potential right here:

A Zelda/Nioh-like crossover with a focus on action set in feudal Japan? I'm in, and they don't even need to invent the IP, they already have it!

Agreed. Super Mario World still remains my favorite 2D Mario platformer game of all time. I've always wanted to see either a HD remaster of this game or see a NSMB game crafted more in the style of SMW.

However, I think we have a better chance of seeing a sequel to Super Mario 3D World before seeing another 2D Mario platformer like NSMB.

@Octane Honestly, a tough-as-nails top-down Zelda game would be pretty cool

As for NSMB, I think we see one eventually. Especially with the whole multiplayer aspect of the Switch, it would be dumb for them not to make one.

I know I'm in the minority when I say this, but I've always enjoyed Mario's 2D adventures more than his 3D ones.

I've played every 2D Mario game from start to finish and enjoyed them.

On the other hand, I've only beaten Super Mario 3D Land, and gotten pretty far in 3D World and 64.

I think, in general, I prefer the gameplay of the 2D games to the 3D ones. I have gotten bored with most of the 3D Mario games.

The only ones I have not gotten bored of is Super Mario 3D Land and 3D World because they mix 2D Mario elements with 3D gameplay, and Super Mario 64 because that game is like a virtual playground with so much to do and discover.

But the other 3D Mario games? I just can't finish them...

So, would I love to see a NSMB Switch? The answer to that question is yes!

@Scrummer I was actually talking about Murasame Castle, and bringing that IP into the modern era.

@Caryslan Sunshine is very similar to 64, and I imagine Odyssey will play the same. The Galaxy games are more linear though, and don't have many big open worlds.

I guarantee there'll be one for the Switch at some point. They sell too much and cost relatively little to make. It'll be inevitable.
They'll really need to change things up though after Mario Maker.

Converted from Sony to Nintendo during 7th gen and never looked back.

@Octane Ah, the fact that you said "Zelda/Nioh" Kind of messed me up.

If Nintendo wanted to not be cheap they would release a brand new NSMB game that has Mario Maker 2.0 bundled in as a mode like Halo 3 or any other game with a level editor to justify spending $60 on a 2D game that's been relatively the same since the turn of the century. But that just isn't how Wii U Nintendo operates.

I'd love one and I'd love it if the game contained certain levels that incorporated the gameplay mechanics of Super Mario Parkour (er, uh, Run) and Super Mario Maker

Growing up in the 80's, side scrolling games where/are my life. With all the negative comments, it seems like my generation is dying. I just hope Nintendo keeps us old folks in mind.

I just wish Nintendo would take a look back at Super Mario Land 2 for future 2D Mario Titles. That Game had some great Ideas and Level Themes.

German Nintendo Fan. Please excuse my flawed english ;)

Isn't that kinda what the 3DS version of Mario Maker did. I never got it but apparently a lot of the premade levels were pretty good. And about as many of them as a full game.

What if they call it Super Mario Bros 4?

Currently Playing: Super Mario Odyssey, ARMS, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Steamworld Dig 2, A Hat In Time, (maybe some Wii games over Thanksgiving w/ the fam)

Speaking as someone who doesn't want another New SMB I don't think there's much negativity here towards 2D platformers. I just think the series hasn't really grown much. As a fan of 2D platformers for me the first New SMB was almost game of the year material. The second I was fine with because it was now on the TV. But the next two were basically just level packs. And if level packs is all the series has to offer Super Mario Maker did a far better job of that.

Anyways, at this stage Yoshi and Kirby are two of only a small handful of upcoming Nintendo published Switch games we're even aware of. So I wouldn't worry too much
