Miyamoto: Nintendo Has Unfinished Business With Super Mario Galaxy Series

Posted by Liam Doolan

Release of Super Mario 3D World got in the way

Following on from Super Mario 3D World producer Yoshiaki Koizuma comments about the possibility of the Mario series returning to an open-world style approach if there was enough demand for it, EAD General Manager Shigeru Miyamoto has now assured fans in the latest Iwata Asks Interview that the development team is not necessarily finished with the Super Mario Galaxy series:

The same team can't make both [Super Mario 3D World and another Super Mario Galaxy game] at the same time…and we can't bring in a second party and slap the name Super Mario Galaxy on it. I suppose we could idealistically make both in Tokyo, but we want to do something new too, so there was that dilemma.

Miyamoto also provided an insight into future project ideas, with one of them involving Super Mario Galaxy.

Personally, I would like to take on a variety of new challenges with Super Mario Galaxy and design 2D Super Mario games in an easy-to-understand way within certain restraints.

Would the return of Super Mario Galaxy in some way or form be of interest to you? Or are you happy with Nintendo's current focus on the New Super Mario Bros. series and the Super Mario 3D Land and World games? Tell us in the comments below.

Ohhhh please yes.
With 3D World out of the way, I really, really hope they decide to make a Galaxy 3.
I want to see what they can do with the Wii U, see if they can somehow top Galaxy 2.

As much as I would love a Mario Galaxy 1 & 2 Remake, Remaster or Sequel. I do feel that you can't only rely on Mario Galaxy series to take over 3D Mario as a whole. I know the Galaxy games have a legacy behind them but they need to take a step back eventually. Look at 3D World, it even got 9.6 from "IGN" (you could guess my reaction to this, lol) and I'm getting that day one.

In order of priority:-

1. Something new
2. Remake Sunshine into the classic it nearly was
3. New Galaxy
4. Galaxy 1&2 in HD with a button replacing the 'waggle to attack'
5. Mario 64 remake

6. New 2D Mario 'in an easy-to-understand way'

@electrolite77
1. I agree
2. I agree also but I rather have more of the older Mario titles from NES to SNES era's
3. Totally agree we need a new Mario Galaxy rather than this 3D World mess.
4. Exactly we need the gimmicks to go away aka blowing BS in the microphone garbage we need a down to earth controls for those amazing games.
5. Sadly been there done that over and over but I don't disagree though because that game is still one of my best Mario titles ever so lay HD on me.
6. Actually I rather for a 2D Mario title to be challenging and fun like the core 80's to 90's era of Nintendo and these NSMB titles are kinda easy which is why I hate the 2D versions of the series nowadays.

"...open-world style approach if there was enough demand for it," I demand for it :)

C'mon people, I know you want it, let's make ourselves be heard :)

Okay, so an open-world in my books would be something in the likes of most of the levels from Super Mario 64. I loved the Galaxy games, but I can't help but feel that most of the levels from there were a bit too linear and I guess 'restrictive' in a way (specifically Galaxy 2), not that that's a bad thing, but I just hope they don't consider those to be the ultimate open-world 3D Marios, since we have 64 that can respectively take that label in my opinion.
Nonetheless, I am really happy that they are considering returning to Galaxy and the open-world style.

I am actually quite content with the current offerings of the NSMB series and the 3D Land/World styled games. They prove to be very 'family-friendly', welcoming and accessible. Anyone can pick them up and play, and I totally condone that, however, after having arguably four similar NSMB games, I would like it if the team could remix it up a bit for the next iteration, at least some banale thing like the visuals. I really like the look of the NSMB games, it's very clean and 'symmetrical', except I can't help but get a bit tired of that 'plasticky', inorganic look. So, I wouldn't mind some drastic changes in the NSMB series, or maybe establish a whole new 2D series to freshen things up a bit.
I remember the times where a 2D Mario game was quite different from the previous 2D Mario in aspects such as aesthetics, tempo/pacing, gameplay mechanics, physics, controls...etc. I mean, just take a moment and look at the progression and differences between Super Mario Bros. - Super Mario Bros. 2 - Super Mario Bros. 3 - Super Mario World ..not to mention, the Game Boy games as well. All those games had a lot in common, obviously (Mario jumping, running, defeating bosses), but they had many changes that made each of them their own 'series' in a way. The NSMB game could be combined into one, great big 2D Mario game (well, maybe apart from the first one).

As for the 3D Land/World iterations, I find them to be really charming, fresh, polished and entertaining experiences. Sure, they may not be true 3D Mario experiences (at least 3D Land as of yet), but they offer a lot of enjoyment, and I can definitely see them as an introductory series for newcomers of 3D Marios, but unfortunately, that's the thing with Nintendo lately. I've noticed them say things like, "we've created a game with newcomers in mind", "..this game will be accessible to anybody", "..this is the ideal game for adults, as well as young children"...etc., yeah, well what about us 'veterans', the ones from the 90s? I appreciate a game or two with a somewhat downgraded experience in order for not-so-skilled players to not be intimidated and hesitant of picking up the game, but it shouldn't be 5, even 3 games in a row that are like that.

That being said, I shall draw a brief conclusion;

NSMB series is fine, very well polished 2D Mario experience, however, I do wish for it to be remixed a bit, if that says anything :P lol

Super Mario 3D series is great, I really enjoyed playing 3D Land, and I can rest assured that I will enjoy 3D World once I get my hands on it. So, all I can say is continue with that series Tokyo :)

As for Galaxy and other open-world Mario games, well ...those are my favorite of them all, and they have a very special place in my heart (lookin' at you SM64), so what I suggest is, to seperate these three series, and treat them like their own. I can see that Nintendo are aware that these are three significantly different Mario experiences, so I'm glad for that.

2D Mario = classic Mario fun, as well as party-styled multiplayer game
3D Mario = fun, family, pick-up and play party-styled game + intro into 3D
Open-world Mario (no flag pole, no timer, hub-world...etc.) = more immersive Mario experience

>Nintendo, keep these series alive. You have something golden that other companies don't :)

@Goginho Well I agree Nintendo, Sega, and Sony are my Golden childhood companies so regardless of what people tell me negative I have no problem loving games from companies that gave me life and happiness in video games and this new Nintendo isn't giving me what I wanted every since the Wii era began just my form of opinion.

Goginho said:

@D3athBr1ng3r187 Totally :) everybody has their own childhood experiences, and people need to respect that. I simply stated that Nintendo need to be reminded of the potential the Super Mario franchise has. We see many, many rip-offs of Mario games on other platforms such as smartphones and what not, which says a lot, therefore Nintendo need to take care of their franchise, and get the most out of it, since it is very demanding. A great recent example (though not Mario) is that Zelda Wind Waker imitation, Ocean Horn or something like that, that you can play on a smartphone I believe. It's almost like an exact copy, what with the swordplay, enemies, exploration, puzzle-solving, health system and what not, only scaled down a bit.

That being said, I hope Nintendo doesn't lose focus, since their games are not only golden to me, but to many others that have grown up with them. Like I said, everybody has their own golden childhood gaming memories. I cherish my Mario and Zelda experiences, and wish them to be the best they can :)

Quelle surprise. Of course they will milk yet another one of their products instead of coming up with something new and original. Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 are practically identical already, but sure toss another one in. It's the easiest way to satisfy the crowd who are demanding an open world mario game after all.

I loved Galaxy, but the sequel already felt slightly stagnant to me.

They're going to have to beef up the thinking on a similar magnitude as the jump from Mario Bros. to Mario Bros. 3 before I'm game again.

Speaking of Miyamoto designing 2D Mario though, I wouldn't be entirely against an all-2D Mario Galaxy 3.

Dang, NIntendo didn't exactly give me what i wanted during the N64 & GCN era, there wasn't anything 2D related, everything was 3D. Make way for the Wii which also brought the wonderful VC, the retro revival(Mega Man 9, Castlevania & Contra ReBirth, A Boy & his Blob, WLSI ect) and boasted groundbreaking motion controls(when done right). To each their own, but the wii is what really got me back into console gaming, the N64 broke my heart and the GCN had me dipping in and out, it was getting rather stale imo. The DS Lite & Wii especially were my gaming saviors. :P

Yes, Super Mario Galaxy 3 is the Mario game I've been waiting for since Wii U was announced. Nothing wrong with 3D World, I'm sure it's quite brilliant as well, but Galaxy was just grand.

That's not smart, don't make an entire series out of a very linear 3d Mario game. -.- SMG2 was one of the most uncreative games I've played in recent years.

Kirk said:

Well I don't actually want to see another pure "Galaxy" game, with the whole spinning around planets and disorienting 3D camera and slightly non-intuitive 3D control that goes with that BUT I don't have anything against the idea of a Mario platform games that's closer to the grandeur and scale of the Galaxy games in principle. Going back to the likes of Super Mario 64 or Sunshine in terms of creating these more expansive, open and actually more impressive levels/vistas is something I can absolutely appreciate BUT I do think that needs to be tempered with level design that still makes it easy to figure out the ideal path to get to the goal, like the more obstacle course design of the levels in Super Mario 3D World, yet with the levels that reach out beyond the main path and the freedom to explore every nook and cranny for those players that choose to do so and lots of rewards and secrets etc for doing so, with controls and a camera that's far more user friendly and far less confusing than the Galaxy games currently have.

Personally however, I'd rather Nintendo just applied the level of polish and spectacle they put into these big fully 3D Mario games into one of their fixed perspective classic gameplay style 2D ones. Use the fully rendered, detailed and beautiful 3D graphics and art style of the Galaxy games and more recently Super Mario 3D World (which I actually prefer stylistically over the slightly more "rendered" looking Galaxy games) but just lock the camera, controls and gameplay in the classic and superior 2D for the most part. You can go all full 3D in any cut scenes, certain sections where precision control is not essential, for certain mini-games where 3D view and control could actually work better (like it would if it were an fps or driving section for example), during the level complete screens and the death screens, during the intro screens to castles, on the map screen (although it would still control on a 2D plane but could be viewed in 3D isometric style perspective and even some levels that appear fully 3D to the casual observer but actually have a more fixed 2D style of gameplay and control (like how it's handled in Skylanders for example, whether it be on foot or even flying sections). So, the game would still have loads of spectacular 3D stuff to impressive people but just not at the times where it actually comes at the cost of the controls and gameplay. That's how you get the best of both worlds; super fluid controls and gameplay mechanics and an intuitive camera with the full spectacle of the modern fully 3D visuals throughout the entire experience.

Also, the best thing about my suggestion is you don't have to continue to keep making multiple different Mario platform series if you go this route, the fully 2D and the fully 3D (now with two variations on the fully 3D where still neither is perfect), because this method would actually capture what's best about each of these series anyway and would result in a game that's actually better than either of the current solutions that suffer from limitations or issues in one way or another that they don't really have to.

@ljb88 Well no, he's not mad because SMG2 did almost nothing different from its predecessor.

YES PLEASE!!!!!
I could play a hundred more Galaxy titles and not get bored.
Although I'd still be happy if they made an entirely new 3D Mario series.
Big 3D platformers in HD with stunning backdrops are an amazing prospect. It pisses me off that all the money in gaming these days goes to the shooters.

Yeah but the controls on that weren't right. A remade HD version with the DS extras and online multiplayer is something I wouldn't say no too, though it would be low priority and as long as it didn't take up much resource

Had this been news a year or so ago, I would have been thrilled.

However, seeing how creative and different Super Mario 3D World is, I almost would rather Nintendo continue to challenge themselves with bringing out something new with the Mario series. If there's a sequel, I think it should be Super Mario Sunshine 2. I'd love to see a return of the open-world adventure Mario games, but not necessarily Galaxy 3. I'd be happy either way though.

DestinyMan

DestinyMan said:

I would be happy with a Super Mario Galaxy 3 as long as the ideas are actually new. It's got to change the gameplay to the extent that it separates itself from the first two games yet still feels like a Super Mario Galaxy. I don't want it to just be a gorgeous HD entry with a new fantastic soundtrack; it's got to have new gameplay ideas to go along with it. But, if Miyamoto truly does have new ideas, then that leaves hope. I could see Super Mario Galaxy 3 coming in a couple of years.

As far as the future of 2D Mario, I just hope they move on from the New Super Mario Bros. series and make a new series that also has an "easy-to-understand way within certain restraints." I would think even the Nintendo developers are thinking the NSMB series has run it's course, hopefully.

Galaxy might have been my favorite Mario game ever. G2 was great, but didn't give me that sense of surprise and amazement that I had in the original. I'd be fine with Galaxy 3, but I would prefer an all new 3D Mario in the Mario 64/Galaxy style. If they wanted to throw in a level or world with gravity puzzles, I would be cool with that.

They made Galaxy 2, 3D Land and 3D World but they are not creators of Super Mario Galaxy.

While I did love both Galaxy games I don't see why we would need a third game in the series. Two was enough for me, and I for one love how Super Mario 3D world has turned out. It looks to be the freshest game in the series since the original Galaxy, and being a big fan of 3D Land, that can only be a good thing for me. Why people want sequel after sequel is beyond me and don't get me wrong, both of the Galaxy games are top quality experiences but eventually enough is enough. Haven't people learnt this from the New Super Mario Bros series? I loved the original New Super Mario Bros for the DS, but after that I was burnt out and I have no doubt that if a third Galaxy game is made, it will happen again. Keep creating new ideas I say, as 3D World has so eloquently proven that they can.

Galaxy 1 & 2 are great games but why not to try some new approach in the 3d mario games ? How about open world Mario in the same vein as Jack & Daxter was. There are so many characters from mario series ( paper mario especially) that can give "quests" when we meet them.

NOO I DO NOT WANT A CONTINUATION OF 3D LAND OR NEW SUPER MARIO BROS SERIES. but. Super mario 3d world is an exception... its using a high amount of creativity and new ideas. but after 3D world. A galaxy game would be nice, But I'd what a Mario game that has ELEMENTS of galaxy but a new title together., you know, collecting the power stars...having tons of missions and levels to do with expertly hidden star coins. NO TIME LIMITS, NO LINEAR PATHS. NO FLAG GOALS, this makes the stage too damn easy for us. i want many choices to consider to complete the stage. like in galaxy, you could take up mini missions for stars instead of going for the main boss. NO MORE RUNNING FROM BOWSER NSMBU didn't do this, bowser was still extremely easy, I want a really good boss battle where you have to actually fight him. like you do in the first installment of the galaxy series. a mix of that and galaxy 2. NO MORE GIANT BOWSER. seriously, its getting over used and i hope this doesnt happen in 3D world. please have bowser at least take 6 or more hits..he's big as poopsiedoodledingdongderrydays and a giant turtle dragon, the least he can do is have tons of stamina or resistance. I like bowser, but he needs major upgrades.. its not fair that mario gets these new abilities but its just the same old bowser. getting bigger obviously didnt solve his problem. and finally a MULTIPLAYER (By choice of course) Mario RPG. 2 players at most.. Mario Galaxy would have been extremely fun if it were actually 2 players, being mario and luigi going against a stage and boss makes it soo much fun because the power star based mario games are much more difficult. especially with the scarce supply of 1 up mushrooms.
Please watch the profanity — TBD

I love the galaxy games, but honestly i just want to see something new that can impress me in the way Galaxy did. Not another sequel with an upres and some new visual effects. 3D world looks a bit different and that's a good thing in some ways, it just didn't have the wow factor when it debuted. In the end I guess I just want something new and impressive.

I don't want a new Galaxy, but I do want something in that style, rather than the casual/multiplayer focused/closed in courses of SM3DW. I'm 100% confident if Nintendo tried to make the line in the Mario 64/Sunshine/Galaxy series it would be an amazing game, but what I'm not confident about is wether they even want that anymore.

Galaxy 1 and 2 are essentially perfect to me, and I would love Galaxy 3. It's a very safe bet, though - of course it'll be great, it's the Galaxy series. I say make a Galaxy 3, so the Galaxy series can be a trilogy. Then, move on. Don't milk it forever. Move on to the next brand of 3D Mario games.

From this interview, I really get the sense that Galaxy 3 is happening. They brought it up an awful lot and Miyamoto went out of his way to say that 3D World doesn't mean they're never making another Galaxy. I say expect a Galaxy 3 announcement maybe next year or the year after.

Giygas_95

Giygas_95 said:

The only way I'd really want a new Galaxy is if it were made truly open-world. Think of Wind Waker...only in this case, the sea is outer space and your ship is Starship Mario.

I suppose I'd get SMG3 if it had the same structure as 1 and 2, but it would probably feel somewhat stale. Also, when I consider the gigantic amount of content in both of those games, I don't really see the need for another Galaxy game with the same gameplay structure (meaning how you search each level for a star and then return to a hub area)

I'm way more excited for 3D World than I would be for Galaxy 3 though.

This also goes to show Nintendo can't win. 3D World was announced, and many raged, crying out for Galaxy 3. Miyamoto now says Galaxy 3 isn't out of the question, and people cry for something new. If they do announce something new, Super Mario Universe or something, people are going to cry out for Galaxy 3 and, hell, maybe even Mario 3D World 2.

StarDust4Ever said:

Super Mario Universe, LOL!

Here's food for thought. Make a Mario game with an expansive free-roaming universe like Hirule. Except make it spherical, so it actually feels like a small planet and not a ball of rock. Run far enough and you circle the entire planet. Add to that warp pipes you can use for fast transport after you discover/unlock areas in the wild. And put ice stages at the poles, deserts, plains, forests, mountains, oceans, just like a real Earth. Instead of having generic cookie-cutter "World 1, World 2, etc, different continents have different themes with portals to worlds in them. So one continent may have a lot of jungle themed worlds, another water worlds, desert, plains, ice, etc. You go through the portal and access a bunch of new "mini-world" levels with a unified theme (all of them free roaming and shaped like spheres), but you get to pick which "area" to start at instead of going in sequence. After you've conquered all seven continents and defeated the Koopalings (in any order), you go to the center of the earth to fight Bowser, starting by spelunking down a treacherous volcano, and into what actually looks like you're descending into the depths of the planet, full of lava of course. The Bowser fight takes place in an arena in the center of the planet where gravity is neutralized.

As much as I love the Galaxy games, I really don't see a third one being too feasible. I personally felt like they were scraping the bottom of the barrel with Galaxy 2, so I can't imagine that they have a whole lot more to work with for a potential Galaxy 3, especially considering all of the crazy things they seem to be incorporating into 3D World.

I could see them incorporating elements of the Super Mario Galaxy style of gameplay into future Mario games, though. I, for one, would have absolutely no problem with that.

Every new Mario game, people complain about how horrible it's going to be and how Nintendo should have made it more like "Mario game X". Then the game releases and everyone realizes how amazing it is, and they shut up.

Then when it comes time for the next new Mario game, people once again complain about how horrible it's going to be and how Nintendo should have made it more like "Mario game Y", the previous Mario game, ya know, the one everyone was moaning and groaning about a few years back. The cycle repeats itself.

Awww!!! I'm excited for 3D World, but I was hoping that they'd maybe make something completely new for the next 3D Mario after 3D World, rather than a Galaxy 3. Yes, I love the first two games to death (they're 2 of my favorite Mario games of all time), but I think the series should stop at two.

It sounds like Shigeru is more interested in the idea of experimenting with new and exciting concepts--in other words he wants to continue building on Mario Galaxy.

I'm glad that the galaxy line of Mario games has potential to live on as its own series. I too believe that there is still so much room for galaxy to grow and improve. It'd be a shame to let the unique style of platforming and orchestra stop here. :)

Wouldn't mind seeing a Galaxy 3, but that would need to be the last Galaxy game.

What I'd really like to see is an open world Mario game where you can actually explore Mushroom Kingdom in its entirety. Then it will have several areas in space where Galaxy mechanics come into play a lot more. A true Super Mario Universe.

I think they should make a Super Mario Galaxy 3, but with co-op/multiplayer that each character as a unique ability(strength, magic, height, etc.) and a different villain that Bowser has to help take down together with Mario and Rosalina, etc. It would also be good to find out more about Rosalina's past and her mother as well. :D Who knows, a bit more explanation could explain of her disappearance. My guess is that she was the previous guardian of the universe.

If they do make a Galaxy 3, and it looks the same as Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, I'm not buying it. Super Mario Galaxy 2 was a lazy rehash like the New Super Mario Bros. games.

Here's what I'm hopping:

I hope they'll make another open world type game like Mario 64, and Sunshine.
I hope they'll stop making 3D Mario sequels.
I hope they'll make a 2D Mario game that isn't a rehash.
I hope they'll discontinue the New Super Mario Bros. series, and the Galaxy series.

Not on the Wii U, please (Maybe 3DS). I love the Galaxy games, but it's time for something NEW. N64 had Super Mario 64. GC had Sunshine. Wii had Galaxy. It's time for that next legendary 3D Mario platformer, and I don't think 3D World or a Galaxy 3 would be that.

I loved Mario galaxy and can't wait to play 2, but I really hope the next 3D Mario game is a true successor to Super Mario 64 and takes place in the mushroom kingdom. And if that doesn't happen i at least hope we get an HD remastered version of Mario 64 with some bonus worlds and new features.

2d? does he mean like mario galaxy in a side scrolling style? i hope not :/ lets not hold back on the wii us impressive ability to make a fantastic 3d open world game. i dont think the N64 would have sold well if it stuck to the side scrolling style while everyone else ways exploring the new possibility that a 3d world had to offer. with that said the 4th dimensions might be the best tool to use to make a new game in the present that couldn't have been played in the past. its like the situation with going to mars. if someone went to the moon while some else went to mars some would be interested the moon landing but there would be more appreciation and focus for the mission to mars. unless he's thinking of putting the game on the 3ds, that might be interesting but just in case fans don't like it he should release the other galaxy games remade in the 3d on the 3ds i cant imagine anybody complaining to much even if the new galaxy game turns out to be a fail. i mean hell who cares right go play the other game you love in 3d!
