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.

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.

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

Yeah I don’t know either.

@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.

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.

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...

@Silly_G I think Nintendo will do the bundle with all the new series on marios 40th year anniversary

@1UP_MARIO : Or they'll dump a 1MB SNES ROM on a cartridge not unlike what they did for Mario's 25th Anniversary.

I'm really looking forward to this. NSMB on DS is awesome, but I haven't played the following games. I understand som people are getting tired of this series, but for me, I couldn't be happier.

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

Plus Super Mario Odyssey is less than a year old. Probably a bit too early for a Super Mario 3D World port if they want it to sell to its full potential. I'd personally bet on it happening in 2020 or so.

Both are 3d Mario platformers, albeit with significantly different approaches to the genre. They don't want this to cannibalize SMO sales. Nor do they want people that recently played through SMO to skip a SM3DW port after having just played through a lengthy 3d platformer. So I'm sure Nintendo is considering the timing very carefully.

The good thing here is the 1st party well of Wii U exclusives is starting to run dry, and Super Mario 3D World is much too good to stay locked away in the vault. So in my opinion it's just a matter of a bit of patience for those Switch owners that missed out on this one, since it's inevitably going to be coming.

And it's one Wii U game that's so good that I won't be able to resist double dipping on. The bump to 1080p that it surely would receive and the lifting of the few gimmicky bits like blowing into the Wii U gamepad's mic to raise and lower an occasional elevator would both justify the upgrade for me.

@Korosanbo Rodea should have the Wii version ported if anything. the Wii U version was an upscale of the 3DS version, the Wii version was the actual game.

Realistically, it's just Xenoblade Chroicles X (probably after how well XC2 sold), The Wonderful 101 (Bayo 1+2 ports did really well), 3D World (Already did most of the work bringing over Captain Toad), and maybe Pikmin 3, and TMS#FE left to port. Five more Wii U releases spaced out at about two to three a year would end their release around 2019, 2020 at the latest.

@Korosanbo : Kirby can certainly happen. I believe the main criticism that people had with the game is that it requires one to constantly be looking at the Gamepad as opposed to the TV (due to the use of the touch screen), so I can see it working as a game that would perhaps be a better experience in portable mode with optional pointer controls as well (for docked/tabletop play).

Devil's Third could happen, though it's more of a skeleton in the closet at this point. If they wanted to, they could iron out the issues with the Wii U version and release a better version of the game that isn't so widely panned.

And the sooner Nintendo brings back Wii/Mii Sports in some form, the better.
