My thoughts.

Mario Maker is fantastic and I do want to see it, but it will never, ever replace 2D Mario games. Its great for creative minds, great for having some fun in community levels, but you're not gonna get that trademark expert design level after level, world after world. Doubt you'll even encounger 1 single stage good enough to rival Nintendo released Mario games and if you by chance do, it'll likely be too hard to beat anyways.

The two are separate entities and one cannot supplant the other. I would be furious if we got no 2D Mario thanks to Mario Maker.

As for NSMBU, the only complaint Ive ever heard leveled against it is how similar it is to previous games in the series. Never that it's not a great game. And it is a great game. One of the best 2D platformers I've ever played.

Unless you're running a marathon of all 4 games in the series back to back it shouldn't be an issue. And New Super Luigi U really breaks from the mold a bit with slightly different mechanics and harder stages.

@JaxonH : That's right. There are far too many novelty or flat-out bad/frustrating levels for Mario Maker to be the benchmark of the series going forward.

In fact, the main draw for me was to be able to make my own levels and play the supplied levels by Nintendo. I have little to no internet in playing strangers' levels.

Having played my physical copy of Mutant Mudds made me appreciate how important good level design is, and for the most part, the levels in Mutant Mudds are very well designed indeed. I have already played the games on 3DS back in the day, but it has been nice experiencing them again in HD (and the HD rumble is surprisingly great).

I liked the single player content they added to the 3DS version of Mario Maker. It felt like a legit full 2D Mario game.

Though it doesn't really make up for the fact they killed the online aspects of the game for no reason.

Yeah I don’t know either.

If a Mario Maker sequel had the ability to link levels with campaign maps with customization, the ability to put even basic scenes between areas to give some story, a few more features like slopes and some preloaded levels made by developers and I'd be a lot more interested than I was in the original.

With all of the 8/16 bit platformers on the eshop I'm surprised Nintendo hasn't released an enhanced 8/16bit style 2d Mario.

I think that's exactly why: to leave some space for Indies in that genre.

Totally agree. The official levels included there could easily stack up to the NSMB games in terms of both quality and quantity. I definitely think Mario Maker would be a strong replacement for standard 2D Mario, though it doesn't seem like that'll be the case.

@Yosheel yea it was great and some of the challenges were hard.
Mario Maker Wii u had more online game
Mario Maker 3ds has more single player content.
I hope we really get a mario maker switch with more single player content as well as online. Easily the best game on the Wii u and a game that should of come early in the Wii u life cycle

Love it

I played Mario Maker the day it came out on a friend's Wii U, and it almost convinced me to buy a Wii U. Making my own Mario levels is something I've always dreamed of, I still have some of my old notebooks where 8 year old me would draw ideas for Mario levels.

It wasn't enough to make me buy a Wii U, but it was enough to make me buy a 3DS. Got one and a copy of the game not long after release. And then a week or so later I bought Dragon Quest VII and then completely forgot about Mario Maker

As it tends to happen. Sometimes I feel the games I hype the most are the ones I play the least

@toiletduck On the same logic will we not see a 2D Metroid so as not to sabotage metroidvanias?? I think the 8/16bit platfromer is already pretty crowded one more title from Nintendo isn't going to do any harm.

I liked the creation part of Mario Maker, not so much playing other peoples. So many just cheap deaths, near impossible levels, or extremely easy and that awful trend of auto levels where you don't even do anything and the level moves Mario to the end and you just watch.
I'd much rather just play Nintendo-made levels.

Mario Maker has plenty of good levels. It has plenty of garbage, yes, but there is no shortage of levels that would make Miyamoto proud. Both versions also contain a good number of Nintendo-designed courses to play through (the Bowser ones are very well-done: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nl2fO6cZxyw ). I'd say that Expert will probably give you the most bang for your buck. Troll and especially Kaizo levels are rare (much moreso than Super Expert), but automatic levels are as well if you're not into that.

I don't really see it happening on the Switch. Mario Maker would have been the perfect game to launch alongside the online service, yet they didn't do so. Instead, they're adding a subscription fee without doing much to soften the blow. You're now paying money for something you used to get for free. A Mario Maker Switch would also have at least two major problems:

1. What to do about the touch screen/docked mode. I think adding a stylus would be a trivial problem, but an E ticket game that's only functional in one mode when the Switch is used as a home console doesn't really fly.

2. What to do about all the courses people have already made on the Wii U version. Do they get scrapped and we have to start over? Is the Switch version just a direct port and therefore compatible with the Wii U version (using the same servers)? Do they add new features/course elements to the game but make them available to everyone?

Overall I think Super Mario Maker was better suited for the Wii U (and 3DS) than for the Switch. In an alternate universe it was a launch title for the Wii U, everyone bought it, and now everyone is talking about how the tablet controller was such a brilliant innovation with Sony and Microsoft to copy it in their next home consoles.

I never played this on Wii U. I played the DS & 3DS NEW Super Mario Bros games. Loved both of them. Can't wait to get this new one.

The 3DS version of Mario Maker really sucks imho. The single player 'campaign' is enjoyable, but more as showcase of possibilities than as a real campaign. It lacks the story and cohesion regular 2D Mario games provide. Since there's no possibility to decently find good levels, you're playing through garbage 98% of the time. I don't really fancy creating levels for myself and I don't have any friends to share levels with, so the game is pretty much pointless for me. When I bought it, I thought you could share levels in communities, on 'best of' websites, et cetera. Unfortunately, that's not the case.

Wish this had New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

I'm happy with NSMBU and NSLU on my Wii U and won't be upgrading. But a HD port or emulation of the Wii game without forced waggle would've been enough of an incentive for me to grab this package.

I would've preferred the Wii one version
I guess the only WiiU exclusive games not ported yet are

Super Mario 3D World
Tokyo Mirage Session (please Atlus!!)
Pikmin 3

I kind of wish they would've announced a 3D World port, but seeing as they removed those levels and ending from Captain Toad, it doesn't look like it's going to happen anytime soon

Mario Party 10, Nintendo Land, and Game & Wario are unlikely to happen due to the fact that they are in the distinct minority of games that utilised the Gamepad to its full potential. I cannot vouch for the others, but those three in particular spring to mind.

Nevertheless, I hope they port as much as they can over.

@Atariboy : I was really hoping that they had included the Wii game as well in order to make the overall package even more appealling. Alas...
