I looked all over for a thread about this and was surprised not to find one?

What do you expect or want from the new 3d Mario in terms of:

theme
gameplay mechanics
level design
storyline
characters

There aren't many places Mario hasn't been, so I have no idea what the theme is going to be for the next one to keep it fresh. I am kind of just hoping for a SM64 castle kind of game again. That would be pretty awesome. Better yet you start at her castle jsut like any side scrolling mario and then you go from castle to castle, in 3D until you get to the final bowser castle :D Bettter yet come up with an entirely new villain instead of Bowser. Bowser can afford to sit one out ;)

It would be risky, but I would kind of like to see Mario and Bowser working together in some fashion against a greater enemy like in Super Paper Mario.But that would be a lot more difficult to pull off in a Mario platformer. Who in their right mind would want to platform with Bowser!?

Also, and I know I'm the minority on this, but bring back voice acting like in Sunshine. I know, I know. Everybody seems to hate it. But I thought it made the adventure even more realistic. It's 2013...reading all that text just seems a bit outdated in an era where games are becoming more and more cinematic. Heck, even Spyro had extensive voice acting back in the 90s.

I would like to see your standard Mario 64-esque platformer, but with vehicle building and usage. Have it like one big open world, where you can use cars and bikes (which you design yourself) to drive to destinations on the map. Perhaps have a large forest in the world too which has tree-top pathways to walk along as well. I would like to be able to go fishing too.

I want something new, not a Super Mario Galaxy 3, and I believe Nintendo EAD has the same mindset. The theme will probably be a flexible one like 64 with various worlds, rather than just a tropical or outer space setting. It would also be nice if it was open-world like 64 and Sunshine. Considering how good the Super Mario Galaxy games look on the Wii, this new 3D Mario is going to look spectacular on Wii U.

Super Mario Dimensions. It's the only step after space, traveling through different dimensions that all look drastically different, some even changing game mechanics or physics.

I have no idea where they'll take him next. But I hope it's somewhere totally different from the Super Mario Galaxy/Super Mario 3D Land style games. Something brand new.

To be honest, the most exciting thing about the next 3D Mario for me right now is the HD visuals. Can't wait to see what Nintendo EAD can do with a HD 3D Mario title! :D It's going to look gorgeous!

Same here. I can't wait for the HD. Hopefully they do it in 1080p an not 720p like NSMBU.

I thought Nintendo fans were all about the "gameplay"?? Since when did it become about the graphics??

I'm very much about gameplay. Doesn't mean I can't enjoy brilliant, colorful, vibrant, HD visuals that a 3D Mario on the Wii U could provide. From the beginning, Super Mario games have been known for their bright colors and brilliant atmospheres.

The graphics in themselves are uninteresting. It's what the devs at Nintendo potentially can do with them that is exciting, well, for me at least. If they can make the Galaxy games look as amazing as they do in SD, just imagine what the same team can create in HD. :D

In true Nintendo style, I could see something like that being called "Super Mario Universes".

Exactly. Nintendo has always had the best and most creative animation skills. A lot of HD games, especially the first person shooters, have great HD graphics. But at the end of the day you're just looking at really good re-creations of streets, houses, and buildings that you see in real life anyway.

Can you imagine the Mushroom Kingdom in HD?

I'm sure that no matter what I want from it, Nintendo will make it better than that.

But seeing as you're asking. I'd be up for a Mario Remix, so-to-speak. Each star in an individual world would be based on a previous game in Marios history

So you'd get challenges designed like Mario World side scrolling levels, 3D arenas from Mario 64, those funky bits in Sunshine when you lose the fludd, and some of gravity worlds from Galaxy.
