But it's Part 1. I seen on the wikipedia page. TBA for the other still :)

actually, we won't know exactly which version it actually is until it's released and someone has a chance to look over the features (if the new ones are available, we can assume it's v2, but if they're not there, it's v1). we can only go on what they said at the press conference at the moment, and at the conference they didn't say 'Flipnote Studio v2', they just said 'Flipnote Studio'. :)

to officially unlock them, you need to have beaten Bowser in Bowser's Galaxy Reactor. with 16 stars left to go, though, you should've done that by now. are comet stars (prankster or purple) the only ones you're missing, or is there another normal or green star left? i found it was easier to get the comet stars by getting all the normal/green ones first, and then after that the comets began to appear one by one (when one appears, play that star until you get it, and then another comet will appear in a different galaxy -- check the big map to see where it showed up if not in the same room) until i'd gotten all 120 stars. i was gonna hafta get 'em all anyway, so i figured i may as well just complete them as the game gives them to you.

once you've got all 120 with Mario, you'll have to beat Bowser's Galaxy Reactor again to unlock Luigi, just so you know (you won't automatically be able to play as him after getting the 120th star).

@Adam: actually, red coins have been around since SMW2: Yoshi's Island.

Also, i would agree with you about local multiplayer being more fun, but if you're like me, it's hard to get together with friends between work and school and blah-blah-blah. it would be much easier to be able to find players online for co-op play... however, at that point you'd have to deal with hackers (like in Mario Kart now). i'd at least like to have the option for online play.

it would be interesting if they had the option to unlock different SMB characters to play as throughout the game as rewards for getting red coins, star coins, etc., like Wario or Waluigi, Peach or Daisy, or enemies like Koopas. i wish there would be physical differences between the characters, though (Luigi jumping higher, Toad being quicker, etc.)... couldn't really tell much about that from the video.

@Zane: true, but you'll also note there was no mention of a Virtual Console DSi at their conference this morning.

it would definitely be cool, though, if you could download packs of new levels via wiiware, or if it included a level editor for user generated content. NSMBWii Kaizo, anyone? that would be awesome/hilarious.

Nintendo said for Wii. They would have specified WiiWare. WiiWare would be a huge mistake. A name as big as Mario's needs to have a store shelf presence to sell the amount of copies Nintendo wants this holiday season.

also, Reggie said before in an interview that they would not bring a mainstream Mario title to Wiiware because they wanted more 'original' and/or 'innovative' titles on the download service, or some other nice way of saying 'no but hell no' to a Wiiware Mario platformer.

edit: found it.

Nintendo redeemed as far as I'm concerned. To announce not one but TWO Mario platform games, unheard of and both look promising. They could've ended the conference right after the Galaxy 2 trailer if they wanted but then to give us a look at a new Metroid game, completely out of nowhere, well that was just awesome. Nintendo, we love you again.

this, and Flipnote Studio/Moving Memo is coming this summer! w00t!

i figured we'd get another NSMB game, but i didn't think they'd put it on the Wii. It looks like fun with four-player action like that. i wonder if we'll be able to play with friends via wi-fi?

Other apps I would like to see would be a digital shopping list where you can add details and tick off as you need them, tally up your amounts prior to shopping and even remind you to buy basics every so often. but that obviously wouldnt appeal to everyone lol.

Heeeyyyy, I like this idea! They were able to integrate a shopping list into Personal Trainer Cooking, so seems like it would be easy enough to make it a standalone app. Sign me up!

that would be so nerdy-awesome, especially if you could save prices depending on which store you went to (Wal-Mart vs. Food Lion, for example) and then use that to pre-calculate your next projected shopping trip and such. i'd pay a couple hundred nintendo points for that, lol.

Same here. I don't play games a regular amount of hours or on a schedule or anything. If I have a friend or two over and not enough to play a board game, we'll be Wiiing it up; or if there is a new major title out, I'll be playing it all weekend without stop. But otherwise, I might pick up Dr. Mario or something for a few minutes or play Brawl for half an hour on a weekend.

i hear ya; Dr. Mario is what I'll play when there's nothing on TV and I'm waiting for something to boil on the stove or whatever.

by your definition, when i've got something to play, i would probably fall under 'hardcore', but when there's nothing out that i want to play, i would go back to 'casual'. i'm not going to touch on the actual games though, just the time spent and experience playing them (because everyone's got their own opinion of what is a hardcore game and what isn't).

12,547. Posted:

It's a game of its own, to be honest. 108 characters is a lot to recruit, and there's a lot of sidequests and little bits of optional story here and there that flesh them all out -- everyone has at least a little bit of backstory; you're not just picking up people to fill your castle with warm bodies, and almost everyone has something new to say in reaction to major story events, so you can spend a lot of time between story events just running around and hearing what everyone has to say. There are other aspects of it that are not present in or are different than Final Fantasy as well, like the trading system, party setup and support characters, the team battle system, combined attacks, and party missions.

Long story short, since a good chunk of the characters in the game are optional recruits, your play experience is going to be what you make of it. it'll either be a longer game with an enormous cast or it'll be a shorter game and you'll probably be disappointed. While Tierkreis is perhaps not the absolute best example of a Suikoden game, all the other Suikoden releases were (or were first released as) console titles, so for a handheld game it's still a lot of fun.

also, Amazon.co.uk doesn't have it in stock, but Amazon.com does. weird. o_O

a Zelda vs. Dark Link fight? hell, that could be a major part of the story -- where Dark Link (or a random Ganon-type evil entity in the form of Dark Link) has realized that Link himself is big in Hyrule, but he/it can't directly face him due to his strength and power and general awesomeness and stuff, so he first befriends Link, then kidnaps or ousts him from the land somehow (puts him out into another dark world or some other dimension?) and Link has to fight his way back. In the meantime, Dark Link masquerades himself as Link (in this storyline DL would not be all shadowed and stuff at first), and before Zelda realizes what's going on he's usurped her power entirely (the people rely on Link to save them all, so they're blindly loyal to Dark Link in his place) and has her confined to her tower, and she has to escape (as Sheik, leaving maybe a lady in waiting or something to pretend to be her so he doesn't think anything's going on), find the real Link, and then they both work together to storm the castle. w00t.
