@Punished_Boss In terms of the Mario brand, do not forget. Certain aspects of the Spikers' wrestling were actually somewhat sadistic, as you can see in the Waluigi clip. 'Code of honour' is paraphrased from my conversation with the developer, but it is entirely accurate, I assure you.

@GeminiSaint That came from someone who was very closely involved with Spikers. They were very confident in what they told me. 'Code of honour' was paraphrased from what they actually said, but that was the general gist of it. There is more info in the full article on the website.

@Jaz007 Well, you can see more of the quotes from my exchanges with the source on Unseen64 if you want a little more detail, but basically, the way I interpreted it was that Nintendo viewed parts of its gameplay premise as unsportsmanly and dishonourable. You could sort of 'punish' the other players, like you see Waluigi do to Mario in the wrestling clip. It's slightly sadistic for a Mario game, as you can see. They didn't agree with the wrestling aspect in that way.

Thanks for posting this :D I'm one of the Unseen64 admins, who helped bring this to light. If anyone has any questions about it, I will do my best to reply. Alternatively, you can catch on Twitter as @Doctor_Cupcakes.

We have another unseen Mario game coming up soon, so look out for that ;)

@7 I think you need to look at this in context. If the console was launching this year, you'd have every right to be worried; but it's not. It's coming out the second half of 2012 and there's PLENTY of time for games to be made. What we saw yesterday was just an unveiling of the tech. Now's the time for developers to hop on board and start making games for it. This year was all conceptual, and by next year, we should be seeing some actual games for it.
