New Super Mario Bros. Producer Speaks

Posted by Anthony Dickens

Nintendo Power speak to Takashi Tezuka, the producer of the New Super Mario Bros. title for Nintendo DS.

EuroGamer report on an article in this months Nintendo Power magazine talking to Takashi Tezuka, the director of Super Mario World and producer of New Super Mario Bros. title, who says, [it] "is set to be a return to form rather than a radical departure".

"When developing this game, I really had the original Super Mario Bros. in mind. After that game, Mario evolved, of course, but it eventually became more difficult and suited more toward hard-core gamers. That wasn't the intention, but that's how the series naturally evolved. I didn't want to continue in that direction. That's not to say this game isn't for hard-core players, but I want to recapture the spirit of the original Super Mario Bros."

It's great to hear developers talking in the same language we're thinking, don't you think? Anyways, New Super Mario Bros. is looking great, taking the classic 2D Mario we all miss and bringing it back with some 3D overtones. Great Stuff.

Been waiting for this game for quite some time now. I never got a real chance to appreciate the older 2D Mario games so this will be a great oppertunity ^^

Yay! Sounds very promising indeed, was starting to worry a bit after seeing a few of the screens but after reading this it sounds like it's gonna be just as full fledged as the older ones .
