On one hand, I guess I wouldn't mind another Mario Galaxy game, but on the other hand there's already been two of those. I only played the first one, however, and it was fun, yeah. Something new would be better. An open world like SM64 sounds cool, though, and being able to jump through the paintings to get to the new places was great. I think that it's kinda possible that there could be a sequel to it--if there isn't one. I haven't exactly played every Mario game there ever was

My Game of Choice? Super Smash Bros!

I do hope it is something new. As stated before, Nintendo likes to have a new concept for each system that gets a 3D Mario. Who knows what it will be.

It would be kind of cool if , say, when you went down a tunnel it turned into a retro style level on the gamepad.

I think the usually second quest might be DLC sadly enough. If not I'm expecting that aside from the second quest some sort of NSLU type of DLC. I'm hoping for a open world myself to symbolize the jump to HD.

WAT!

That would be pretty cool.

Although I must admit, I am not expecting much from this game in terms of how it uses the GamePad.

I wonder if the next 3D Mario game will have fully orechestrated music. Either way their going to have a hard time trying to top Super Mario Galaxy 2 music. Is it just me, or I the only one that doesnt want to see another galaxy game annouced? I want this game to completely surpise me in a good way and aside from another galaxy title I have no idea what the next 3D Mario is going to be.

Well the last of their big console Mario/Zelda games that didn't have an orchestrated soundtrack was Twilight Princess. I'd say it's probably a given that they'll have it fully orchestrated..... and I'd go further and say they might even give the Wind Waker remake an orchestrated soundtrack. Whether or not it'll be "better" is a matter of taste I guess.

As for not wanting it to be another Galaxy I don't think there was that much different about Galaxy. It really was just bringing Mario back to the N64 style but with a space background. That's why Galaxy was great, it introduced a new sort of level but it maintained the "walk into a door" sort of Mario 64 hub. I'd be a bit annoyed if there were no gravity puzzles and I don't really care what the hub is that much. As long as there is level variety I'm happy.

I hope they will do something totally new, though Galaxy 3 could also be fun (as long as it contains lots of new ideas). Or a Sunshine sequel! Or maybe even a free-roaming 3D sequel to Mario bros 2, with vegetable throwing and all! By the way: I prefer bigger worlds (as found in Sunshine) over many smaller ones! I would love to see the Koopalings in 3D! And I want to see E.Gadd in a bigger role, and maybe even Wario and Waluigi!

We know in a couple of days!

Maybe Bowser finds out how to manipulate the world and spread it across the stars, he captures Peach, Mario is the world's only hope. Similar gameplay mechanics to SMG1 and 2 is something I expect. Possible gamepad usage too, you know what, most likely. The level design could hopefully be something new, maybe a blend of Galaxy and Sunshine. The characters: Mario (Duh), Peach (Obviously), Bowser (Of course), Luigi (It's his year), Yoshi (Likely), Toad (Why not), and the cute partner of which the gamepad controls. Mario tries to repair the world, save Peach and any civilians, stop Bowser.

I would like to see true 2P if the U can handle a second player running about on the game pad screen. I don't know if that is beyond its processing power or what.

I hope it's a new theme or a Doki Doki Panic theme since that world was really interesting. Whatever the theme, give it a hub world as fun as 64's. Galaxy and Galaxy 2 skimped in that area, so it would be nice to see it expanded beyond even what 64/Sunshine had. Perhaps incorporate the short, simple levels seamlessly into the hub itself, so that I have a mini-level to cross to new areas.

Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.

If you abandon the idea of off-TV play entirely you could do some pretty cool things. Go down a pipe and you appear on the GamePad for a 2D section. Alternatively the GamePad could provide a different view, like an overhead view that allows you to see where you have to go.... or a first person view with a press of a button.

Yeah, I also want a proper hub-world!

@Henmii Hub world, yes! Great idea. I am expecting a part of Mario's world were a peaceful species is at and he is sent to save the world by that species. You will be able to explore that portion of the world, get stars, fine secret 1-ups, and explore.

I don't think they need to drastically change the art style for the game, just make a natural progression in the graphics. The jump from 64 to Sunshine was great, and Sunshine to Galaxy was fine as well. The 3D Mario games don't look radically different from each other, but they each fit the tone they were going for.

I would personally like a bit of a change in art direction, maybe a little spaghetti & meatball HD drip oozing down mario's lip, with his Pasta packed gut hanging out of his NintenTrousers. We need classy advancements like this, it's essential to the current sh**-state of the gaming industry.

In all seriousness, i'm still hoping we get a SMB2. successor taking place in the dream world, that or a sequal to Super Mario land 2 where you must save daisy from Wario in good ol' quirky Sarassa land.

I agree with WaveBoy on it possibly being sorta like a 3D SMB 2.
Or atleast have the dream theme where Mario must enter dreams or something. Super Mario Dream!

But, isn't Mario & Luigi: Dream Team doing that already? It'd make the whole 3D dream world idea rather redundant if it was also done here. I'm thinking things will be more along the line of different dimensions.

For example, what if Mario went to an alternate dimension where Bowser has actually won? It seems to be suggested in the Neo Bowser City track in Mario Kart 7, so such a notion wouldn't be too far-fetched.

Different dimensions has been done already too:

Either way, there's nothing wrong with having two Mario games based on the same theme. After all, did Mario's Time Machine stop them making Mario & Luigi Partners in Time? No? Same here with the dream world thing.
