Shigeru Miyamoto has hinted that a "new kind" of Super Mario title is on its way, and could even be shown off at next year's E3.
Speaking to IGN, the legendary designer said:
We're always challenging ourselves to create something new, so hopefully you'll see a new kind of Mario in about a year or two. Maybe next E3 we'll be able to share something.
Nintendo has just shown off The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a brave new take on the franchise which includes many dramatic changes from what has gone before. However, Miyamoto points out that with Mario games, change has to handled carefully because the audience is so much broader:
It's kind of difficult with Mario because some of the more important conventions of Mario are based on the approachability and accessibility of those games.
However, he added that as new talent has joined Nintendo over the years it has allowed the company to look on these conventions "with fresh eyes".
Super Mario Galaxy was perhaps the last game in the series to really shake up the formula, but Super Mario 3D World and Super Mario Maker could be seen as "refinements" which add something of their own to the franchise.
This new title will almost certainly be on the Nintendo NX, but what form will it take? Let us know your predictions by posting a comment.
Oh look another Mario game.
No Mario launch title for NX?
It had better not be another 2d side scroller.
A "Mario Warriors" was hinted at sometime ago, maybe he is referring to that?
Super Mario Islands: The Seven Golden Plungers
Oh boy! Finally, a Brand New Super Mario game!
I'll bet its for the NX! Can't wait to see what it is!
I love me some Mario games!
And no, I'm not being sarcastic here for your information.
Hmm, this makes the common sense theory of Zelda being an NX launch title more likely.
Speaking of which, Zelda does make me think Nintendo will be taking a western approach with more key franchises to try and make NX sell well. I mean the new Zelda is clearly inspired by the iconic Skyrim so maybe a Mario inspired by Crash or Rayman for example.
It would be great if this game is for the NX. If so, the NX would basically start off with a Legend of Zelda game AND a Mario game a bit later. That would be pretty amazing!
NeXt Mario, eh? Get it?
Mario Galaxy 3, I hope so. As much as I enjoyed 3D World, I felt Galaxy had so much more depth and is one of the few changelling Mario games that takes more than 2 hours
@ReDeadLink GIVE US MOTHER 3
I'm still holding out that we get to visit Delfino island again.
Coming in early 2018...
Super Mario: Koopa Wrangler
Hopefully it'll be a 3D title. Sunshine 2 would be amazing, but that really isn't new. Just please nothing like the "New" series or 3D series! And giving Luigi a major role in the game wouldn't hurt, either.
Miyamoto said before that he would like Mario to "usher in the next era".Unless they've got 2 in the works it doesn't sound like that's going to be the case.
That actually genuinely worries me more than it excites me.
And, sounds like Nintendo's about to release the NX with no new flagship Mario platformer, which is also really disappointing.
A Galaxy 3, Sunshine 2 would make me cry tears of joy. But I'm fine with whatever they hit me with.
Give us a open world Mario game!
Excited to see what they make! Galaxy was a bold move for the franchise and ended up being one of the best games in it, so I can't wait to see how this new title turns out.
Hope Gino is in it!
@Kirk The Wii launched with no Mario until a year after launch.
I'm calling it: an open-world, go-anywhere-do-anything Mario Bros. for NX. Think "The Elder Scrolls VI: Mushroom Kingdom," and you're on the right track.
If they REALLY wanted to make a bold approach, how about a dazzling 3D Mario RPG that's optionally multiplayer like Tales of Symphonia? It could be easy, but not so easy that it insults the players intelligence...
Now that I think about it, a Smash bros RPG in the same vein would be SPECTACULAR!!!
Jeez, hope is a dangerous thing...
A handheld Mario Maker game... please... please... [faints]
@RedeadLink Yeah because the last one in 2013 was just too recent to have another one that may or may not even be announced next year.
@Lizuka I'm sure that's totally what he meant by "new".
"Super Mario Plumbing Simulator: the VR Experience"
Yes it's coming. But it's in a galaxy far far away.
Super Mario Adventure!
Uh.. Reggie also mentioned that for the NX, they were focusing on content rather than power. Now, Nintendo can do whatever they want to do, but it looks like still no third party support if the NX isn't on the same level as PlayStation and Xbox... 😔
@Grumblevolcano I know; it was annoying.
Next E3? So that pretty much confirms the next Mario platformer isn't going to be a launch window game for the NX. Bummer.
@NintyFan Same here. I like the 3D Marios but 2D Marios is what make the series what it is. Not to mention that those are the ones that sell hardware.
Super Mario Universe ! XD
Well, combination Super Mario Galaxy + Mario Sunshine + Mini Games + Animal Crossing style. When you're tired to do tedious chores (Collecting stars, coins,etc) you can swith by enjoy the scenery, having siesta time, play mini games, create or decorating your own island and invite other players from internet. So, at least new Mario games will not just ONLY action platformer, but also including all elements from another games. Let's say Go Vacation Wii. You can straighly do the mini games (It called Activity) or wandering around, finding treasures, riding vehicles, swimming around, goofy around, decorating your villa, invite the other player, and many more. That's my ideas for next Mario games.
It's an open world mario, except you travel around in said open world with other characters in a car, together.
They're probably going to talk about it next e3...It makes enormous sense for it to be a launch title...yeah NX is not coming out in March and they all know it lol
@CCore28 the difference is that there are alot if different kinds of Mario games like 2D 3D Sports Racing etc like there has been a 3 year gap between all of the 2D games and all of the Mario karts since New Super Mario Bros and Mario Kart DS there are big gaps between 3D Mario games the last of which we got in 2013 it's not like assasins Creed or call of duty where it's the same gameplay just different graphics and maps and when it comes to Mario Kart and 3D Mario they are always trying to change up the formuls
Erm, 2 years? Surely they have something before that?
@Grumblevolcano @Spoony_Tech Oh come on, you both know it's Mario Skylanders, and I'm not even joking. How many versions of Mario amiibo do we need before they get a game? And there will still probably be a 2D Mario at launch, he's talking about something else.
Is Miyamoto the official Nintendo troll now? He is the one who said last year Pikmin 4 is "nearly complete."
So are either of you guys bothered about no map on the Gamepad for Zelda? Miyamoto trolled us about that also 18 months ago.
@Neurotic_Biotic they might as well pull another 64/cube situation with 6 years hiatus.
@LegendOfPokemon well, about that content thing, they were selling the same story to people with U, and we all know how it ended up.
What bugs me with Nintendo at times is they will drop these bits of news way too early. I would rather they tell us about things closer to when they're due to be released.
When we get to next years E3 and they have no information ready, we'll end up in the same sitaution as the NX. A year full of rumours and an eventual no show.
People won't get pissed off about a no show on things if they're not made aware that these things are being worked on.
Considering that Nintendo are so tight lipped on things, the management seem to like messing with their fans.
'New Kind of Super Mario' is probably the actual game title lol
The NX Mario launch title will probably be the new 2D Mario franchise they were hinting at last year.
No Mario for launch? Damn, now that's something new, although not in a way people would like it.
They might as well just show off NX, they know they won't make that much more money on U, especially when the news came out that they decided to stop production of U at the end of 2016.
Mario VR! Could be the Mario 64 of VR platforming after all...
@Spoony_Tech They'll pop out another NSMB I'm sure. That or just like the Wii, they'll rely on Zelda (And whatever Wii Sport/Nintendo Land pack in game they hope will sell the system...)
Considering the new Amiibo announcement the next Mario game might implement them. Imagine going through the game as Wario or Waluigi or even Daisy.
I think it's going to be really something amazing, unexpected and different. No sarcasm. I think the NX is going to be another golden age for Nintendo. Puts all the chips in
Funny thing about Mario: I don't think it NEEDS a huge shake-up. The entries that are less than stellar (e.g. NSMB) are so due to a lack of creativity put into them, not because the core formula needs to be changed. Of course, you often don't know how great a change can be till it's happened....
Why people want every single franchise to go "open-world"? Nintendo can do better than that, like Galaxy.
@RedeadLink would you rather the same formula with a different ip?
@Grumblevolcano maybe, though if I recall Mario usually sells much better than Crash Bandicoot or Rayman as is.
And while Breath of the Wild does take pages from other open-world games like Skyrim, it's still very much The Legend of Zelda. I even get classic NES vibes from what I've seen, like how you're dropped into this world with barely any context.
I'd say the chances of it being a 2d side scroller are slim to none.
Mario 1st person survival horror rhythm game yea
This sounds kinda cool, but the NX CANNOT launch without a Mario game. If the NX launches with no Mario game, then that would be Nintendo's 2nd console to not have a Mario game at launch. Besides, this says "New kind". So which means it could be next gen in the Mario series. But Nintendo could the same thing they did with the Wii U, a 2D Mario game at launch to hold us over, until a 3D Mario game comes out. Also a Mario Maker game NX launch title would be bad. If the NX launches with a Mario Maker game, it will be a great game at launch, but would it be a good LAUNCH TITLE? Absolutely not! You can't start of a console with a making game! Making games come later in consoles life span. So yeah. Would it be a great game at launch? Yes. But would it be a good LAUNCH TITLE? ABSOLUTELY not!
My biggest fear with the NX is that it's going to be the underpowered system again
Also one thing I forgot to explain how the NX may not launch with a Mario game, Shiguro Myamoto said last year that Nintendo is preparing a all NEW 3D Mario game. And he also says he wants it to be a "LAUNCH TITLE FOR NINTENDO'S NEXT SYSTEM"! So there COULD be 2 3D Mario games on the NX. The Wii BASICALLY had 2 3D Mario games. Super Mario Galaxy, and Super Mario Galaxy 2. Anyway the NX could have 2 3D Mario games. Like I said, the Wii BASICALLY had 2 3D Mario games. So like, the NX could have 1 3D Mario game at launch, and the next 3D Mario game which could be next generation, come out later.
Well since the 2D team released Mario Maker last year and the 3D team hasn't done anything since 3D World, the game they're talking about is most likely a 3D game. As for what kind of game, I was actually discussing this earlier and I think they might want to come up with a new formula that better hybridizes the linear platforming and the collectathon gameplay. The 3D series attempted this, but skewed much more towards the linear side of things and felt more like a NSMB game in 3D than a hybrid of the two formulas.
The new formula I imagine would do three things:
1. It would have a straightforward main path with several opportunities to branch off and explore. This keeps the level design accessible while allowing fans the opportunity to explore as they have in past 3D games.
2. It would merge the classic flagpole and star collection into a single progression system so that players can choose either method to progress through the game based on their playstyle.
3. Like BotW, you would have multiple ways to solve problems and get through the level. Applying this to platforming means that you can use various platforming skills to reach the same point. Maybe you want to long jump across the gap. Maybe you want to wall jump across instead. Maybe you have a powerup that can help you get across. Maybe you can use a level gimmick. The choice is yours, and you would have to think about what's the best way to reach your destination. This could also enhance speedrunning, because it adds that element of decision making in figuring out what's the fastest way to progress.
The fact that the younger devs are involved in creating this new formula is a good sign that they may indeed be bringing back more collectathon elements, since they would've grown up with Mario 64 and maybe even Sunshine and would likely have been influenced by those games.
@rjejr I would so buy a Mario Skylanders but I much rather they let Activision do it themselves and either just add all the Amiibo to their next game or make one for them. I rather like the Skylanders formula.
@Spoony_Tech Well I guess I shouldn't have said Skylanders b/c now that you say "formula" I'm thinking "no, it won't be anything story driven like Skylanders, it will be a real Animal Crossing type game but with Mushroom Kingdom amiibo". Or Tomodachi. Though I suppose it could be story driven, you'very probably seen me go on and on about a Subspace Emmissary sequel. That's the game I really want. Well I really want it in 3D, but after 2 years worth of Zelda delays I'll settle for 2D in the Yoshi Wooly World game engine. So many options for amiibo type games, and they pick a board game while so many people clamor for Pokémon Snap! Can't get much easier than "amiibo Snap", just place it in that discarded Animal Crossing Wii U app. Just what was that thing anyway?!?!
Sorry, tired rambling, bed time.
I guess it could be a new 3d entry (instead of a sequel)
A different idea to go with the different game announcement. I would like to see a COD/Team Fortress type game using Mario characters so no bullets or explosions but maybe using water guns, balloons, and grenades instead and if you're soaked you have to go towel off and respawn. Something kid friendly yet fun and tactical.
@jmbarnes101 They tried that. It turned into Splatoon.
@BarryDunne Please! I'd love an open world Mario. If it's a "new kind of Mario," I doubt he's talking about the inevitable platforming Mario that'll be an NX launch title. But that's just my guess.
Still have no idea why they never created a large open world platformer. I grew up with Mario, and the most exciting things were the books and comics like Super Mario Adventures, the Choose Your Own Adventure books, and the Valiant comics. If they could create a large, explorable Mushroom Kingdom with a real story it would be such a cool game.
I always expected Mario to go that direction after SM64... pretty much everything since hasn't been my cup of tea.
@Arlo Arlo! What are you doing here? Haha, I love your videos!
Super Mario Galaxy Maker confirmed!
A return to form of multiple missions in a series of large open playgrounds and collectibles (yeah i'm one of 5 people left in the world who likes collectables in games) with fluid controls and fun jumping and flying mechanics, and I will be happy.
Come on Mario Ballet
@Jacadamia Thanks! XD
@RedeadLink Yep, and its always welcome.
Could be a new 3D platformer. I'm all for it actually.
After their last 'innovation' turned 3D Mario into almost 2D gameplay, I'm more nervous than excited by these comments.
I would love to see an open world Mario game. Hopefully that's what they have done
Guys, it says "new kind" of Mario game. So no, not Galaxy 3 or Sunshine 2.
Also how does this mean that theres no Mario NX launch title? Again, Miyamoto is saying "new kind" of game
This intrigues me since it seems that Mario won't be getting another sequel game. Something entirely new please. Still dunno why people would want another Galaxy or Sunshine instead of an entirely new experience.
I wouldn't mind seeing a Mario game with the same art style as Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. If it's VR I will cry ;-; .
I'll believe it when I see the"almost complete"Pokemon 4
Whywe didn t get a Galaxy 3 on WiiU? Why Nintendo, why???
I'm always, always up for more Mario, and I'd imagine I always will be.
what i want from the mario series:
1) new experience like super mario galaxy
2) a new mario strikers
Super Mario Koopa Shooter or Super Mario Dress up, or something equally idiodic
I still think that SM World on the SNES is the best with SM 64 coming in second.
Mario 3D World was such a disappointment...
New kind of Mario..? New Super Mario NX..!
@BarryDunne I could see that working, I guess. but its one thing to sketch it, another to experience it.
lets hope its like Zelda Gaiden and not delayed.
over ambition breeds problems, just look at Horizon and the Last guardian especially.
What the hell!? O_o;
I don't get that, too. I'd also like 3D Mario to be a 3D platformer, not an adventure game. But that's just me.
If, I say if Zelda Breath of the Wild will be a launch title, why would they release a 3D Mario at the same time? How many people would buy both anyway?
@Grumblevolcano well, long ago was a game in 1986 called the Legend of Zelda
Skyrim didn't exist then.
@Jayvir Exactly. I love/d Sunshine and Galaxy, but it's definitely time for something new.
@Kirk maybe so but with Zelda, Nintendo has a fighting chance, even if the Mario game is something akin to a 3D Mario over ambition isn't a good sign lately.
Well we've had 2D, 3D, Karts, Parties, Football, Basketball, Makers, Painting, Typing, and Fighting, but were yet to have an ultra realistic plumbing game.
Olive replacements, u bend unclogging, power shower maintenance- all sound great stuff to me.
@wiggleronacid however, all we really need is a Smash port, Splatoon port and a few heavy hitters like say.... Dragon Quest 11?
@KIREEK I'm still buying everything else, but I'm all on as well.
"The Mario Brotherhood: Koopa Killers"
Big open world Mario just like zelda but In mushroom kingdom
Mobile Mario Runner, trolololo~
No predictions. Because not even Nintendo know what they are talking about.
It is a faint idea in some ones head. And if it is anything like Zelda it will be at least three years away. Next E3 we will get a few screen shots, the year after some video footage and the year after a release date.
It's a bit like an author saying 'Im working on my next book'. They have a title, and that's it.
We now know a new Mario is in the pipe line. And that sounds disappointing if that is the next Mario. I expect a new Mario title with the NX release.
Just please don't be another Galaxy game. I hope "new" actually means "new"
Given the fashion for filling the gaps between high time/money investments of new games/ips/concepts by all development teams including Nintendo. And also the need for a REALLY popular launch line up. I'd expect a Mario HDremaster of some kind before we get the 'new, New 3d Mario game'. I'd personally love to replay sunshine but as it's more cult than mainstream in popularity it could be 64 or a galaxy game.....
@Piersen careful what you joke about, Sega have made a fortune of the sonic runner so Nintendo might actually consider that. 0_o
Could be a Mario Amiibo Festival
Cool. I'm not gonna lie, the prospect of Galaxy 3 would be more immediatly exciting for me, but going on a fresher direction is probably the best thing for the franchise. Personally, I just hope it's more like 64, Sunshine or Galaxy than 3D Land and World. Don't get me wrong, I really like those games, but I prefer my 3D Mario games to be a little less like 2D Mario games, especially when those are still being released. And if this is a 2D game, I just hope they finally move away from New Super Mario Bros.
@ULTRA-64 If it brought some money to Ninty from a different audience and maybe introduced Mario to kids who only play on their tablets, I frankly wouldn't care. I highly doubt that is what their next big Mario project is about.
"Oh look another Mario game"
Of course they're making another Mario game. What, you thought the oldest and most iconic franchise in gaming was just going to come to a screeching halt?
People would riot if they skipped Mario on the NX. I would too,
"Big open world Mario"
That could actually work. Imagine an huge open world, with pipes everywhere that go all kinds of places. And they could use switch boxes to rope off certain areas until you beat a boss or area, then once you beat it and activate the yellow switch box, now you can cross that ravine over to this other area.
And once you beat that you unlock tanooki suit, which you can now find in question blocks.
Don't care. Mario games always suck.
If it's a new sandbox-like 64/Sunshine style Mario game, I'll gonna be so happy.
If it's an open world 64/Sunshine style Mario game, I'll probably crap my pants with excitement.
@CCore28 Perhaps you haven't considered that there hasn't been a main series Mario game in the last three years.
Mario: Maybe now you'll reconsider announcing "Mario Ballet".
.....Whoa! Wait a minute!
If it is a side scroller, it needs not to be the "new" series anymore. Not that the series is bad, but they keep using the same artwork, music, amd other aspects over and over again. At least you can tell a difference easily between SMB and SMB3. Can't say that really for the "new" series (that is a decade old now).
Wouldn't surprise me if they first do a New super mario bros NX. Because the Japanese go totally nuts about those games.
So yesterday Reggie said NX is not going to compete with power which pretty much equals = No 3rd party support
Now Miyamoto says new Mario may come in a year or two which pretty much equals = Sparse releases and poor launch lineup
This announcement worries me a bit. After Super Mario 3D World, I hoped Nintendo was busy working on the next Mario and Metroid (which skipped Wii U) to have them ready for NX launch. I mean a real 3D Mario like Super Mario Sunshine with open worlds, secrets and exploration; and a 3D Metroid like Metroid Prime. Honestly, I don't know what Nintendo has been doing during the last years, not Wii U games, for sure.
Do they really believe that a Wii U game like Breath of the Wild will make NX a popular gaming platform?
If they can pull off an open world mario game that would be awesome I think. I still think a Mario moba would be cool with amiibo unlocking new characters to play. Great way to sell more amiibo and get the attention of some hardcore gamers.
@JaxonH "Big open world Mario"
Have you played Mine craft Mario skin? (I can never remember if you Mine craft or not.) I thought that would be a good test run for an open world Mario feel. I've always liked the Paper Mario games for the over world feel. Well maybe only TTYD, but that's really the only one that counts right? (I am very much looking forward to the new one, just joking about the popular consensus.)
I do like the tanooki suit idea. Don't forget iced over cave doors that would require the fire flower like Bioshock. And we'll really every other adventure game ever made. Only metal Mario could walk over electric floors - I think that's from the original Spyro, maybe the sequel.
But it has to be populated by amiibo, first and foremost.
@MrGuinea I can't imagine Nintendo ever making a battle arena for its characters, it already has that in SSB. I do think the people that played "Free Realms" have been dieing for a replacement though since that game shutbdown. "amiibo Tomodachi", but with a better name. And a much better name than Miitomo."amiibo online" is probably the most explanatory, and lyrical. "World of amiibo" might get them sued. "amiibo World online" maybe. But no real fighting, just snowball and paintball fights, and those wooden sword Resorts fights. But not moba, Animal Crossing.
I don't see them as the same thing. Sure both would be shooters but that is where the similarities would stop, in my imagining anyway.
My best guess is a large true 3D Mario in the vein of galaxy or 64. This would not only give fans what they have been hoping for, but it could also be a showcase for the technical ability of the NX. long draw distances, great textures, a great sense of scale, etc. Hopefully it will be an original game, but it is very likely it would be galaxy 3.
Maybe it's Mario VR.
"The Legend of Mario: Breath of Mushrooms".
Either that or "Super Mario Smash Bros 3D World Sunshine Galaxy Quest Maker NX". Comes with both VR and AR support...
So clearly we won't be getting a new Mario for the NX launch. This just makes me think the NX launch is going to be a bunch remastered WiiU games. Screw Nintendo - they never learn
even newer super mario brothers?
@Pahvi yes, you're correct. Dang autocorrect
@jmbarnes101 They're not. It started off as a Mario spinoff, but then they made it its own IP.
Yay! I like new kinds of things!
@Captain_Gonru "There was no map on there?"
I don't know, I'm not feeling real good about it. you can read more here.
#47 has some links. Here's the most relevant one.
I was really annoyed at Anouma for spending so much time talking about TP HD like it was a new game, when he should have been working on Zelda U. But now. Well now... let's just say hypocrites are not my favorite people.
I know open world is trendy, but I don't think it fits well with Mario. I think what we need is to revisit the Mario 64/Sunshine formula, with the hub world where you "discover" the various levels. The hub world can be bigger than Delfino, but the setting more Mushroom Kingdom-y, or even better, using that formula in a revisit of the Galaxy setting, which would be glorious in HD.
One other idea I'll toss into the wind: different bosses. We can have Bowser and all the Koopalings, but let's add in Donkey Kong (the original Mario bad guy), Wario, and Waluigi too. They could each have their own hub worlds you have to get through.
Based on the comments, none of that seems particularly likely. It'll probably be more like a spinoff. But still... I can dream.
Mario Fishing 😆
And Pikmin 4 is almost complete right? Yeah... sure Shigsy... sure...
Mario Parkour! First person Mario game sorta like Mirror's Edge but more for kids.
Psst... don't forget DDR Mario Mix on Gamecube. Genre Rhythm also included.
Lol. Then we must fishing Cheep Cheep for the fish. XD
The gameplay somewhat like River King then ......
Cyber Mario Bros.
Mario, Luigi, Toad, Princess Peach and other characters will wear futuristic outfit matching with their color. The game mode mixture of Fighting mode (ala Street Fighter) , Racing Mode (ala Mario Kart ), Rhythm Mode (Cyber Techno Trance musics infusion, playing ala any rhythm games), RPG Mode (ala Ever Oasis) and Party Mode.
Everybody do Ballet... XD
Everybody so excited to see Mario, Luigi, Bowser and any male characters wear ..... a Tutu.
Very good idea. As long the Toads are not everywhere just like on Paper Mario. Love to see completely new characters as addition.
2D side scrollers are good.. but 3d world and galaxy are perfect.
The Mario third person shooter Splatoon was supposed to be
2d Mario with the art style/animation of Cuphead. With Prof. E. Gadd providing the powerups.
Well whatever it is I hope it is an RPG...I'm slipping on all the Church of the Thousand Year Door member's tears.
....Go....back...to....conferences Nintendo. >.<
If not then I'm fine with the Digital events, just...DO SOMETHING NEXT TIME!
@HSuzumiyaVI Very true. They don't need their heavy hitters out at launch. I probably won't be interested in the system until the holiday season, so if they have it out by then, then the release date for it might work out very well.
@LegendOfPokemon guess you don't read much.third party company's are already on board with the nx.since it was called nx at E3 I Think Nintendo nx is its name.
I'll take Galaxy 3 at this point. Long over due as both 1&2 were awesome games!!
@Rin-go while I understand what you're saying, the point of a strong console launch is to have a multitude of amazing games to choose from so people are convinced to buy the system. And being that Nintendo is playing catch up, and attempting to recover from the Wii u situation, they really need to make sure that they have plenty of great games to choose from on the NX Day 1. So to me a Zelda and Mario title available on day 1 wouldn't surprise me at all. In fact, They may even need more than those to come out of the gate strong!! Say wave race? F-zero? pikmin 4? Mario Kart 9?? Etc...
No Super Mario Galaxy type game! One of the mario games i couldn't careless. Give us oldschool Mario games. Mario Sunshine was ok as well. I prefer that type of game of mario
I don't mind long waits between Mario's, if it's worth it!
@Megumi_Sagano I prefer this format better, it benefits games like color splash and can be discussed in detail rather than briefly mentioned and all of a sudden on youtube you have hate squads for games they don't like.
people were insane to judge a game based on 30 seconds of footage, the treehouse finally explained the game a direct cannot.
I don't know about you but i'd prefer the fan base doesn't go on witch hunts until they know the whole story. it makes the community look bad.
@HSuzumiyaVI I was fine with the Digital Event though, since they could still show off whatever via Treehouse after that.
So much anti-2D hate on this page
@Captain_Gonru Worse than his analogy is that he's the guy who put maps on the Gamepad screen in both WW HD and TP HD, but NOW it doesn't work? That was one of THE selling points for both of those games. HIS games.
Not sure where we stand now on Home and Away. Worst case scenario - evil Nintneod trolls it's fans by not having the Gamepad screen map on Wii U, launches NX Home w/o a screen, sells a "comparable" Zelda:BotW, then 6 months later announces NX Away, which works as a second screen w/ NX Home, and if you buy the $200 handheld you can put the Zelda map on there, making the NX Home version BETTER than the Wii U version.
And what they'll say is, Wii U didn't have enough power to do the map "properly" on the Gamepad screen w/ such a big open world game like Zelda U, they needed the extra power of the NX Away to run the map alongside the game on the NX Home.
The more evil I get, the more sense I make. I frighten myself sometimes.
Like games from every other company these days, Super Mario 3D World was about as 'safe' as one can get. That said, the basic Mario formula is awesome and has been awesome for three decades so it was still highly enjoyable. Whatever the next game is bringing to the table, it'll be spectacular.
@Grumblevolcano I can also see them doing that but I don't see why Nintendo would look to Rayman (which isn't a big seller) or Crash Bandicoot (that really hasn't been relevant since the Playstation era. I agree with the concept, but I think Nintendo will have a hard time looking at Western games to change Mario games...
@Kirk The GCN and Wii both released with no new 'Mario Platformer' and the Wii U did... Even the GCN sold way more the the Wii U will ever manage to sell. I don't think they need to launch with Mario. Personally I think Zelda BotW would be the better launch title. Get the hardcore to buy an NX for Zelda and then cement them in with a awesome Mario game.
I have no idea about Western gamer taste (Judging by the graphic first, gameplay quality later). I feel lucky have a mindset somewhat like Japanese gamer (Judging by the gameplay first, graphic quality later). Comparing the opinions are much like comparing Day and Night. The two different things that will never colide.
@TsukiDeity I don't think they NEED to launch with a new Mario; I just wish they would. And, the more I'm hearing about NX and everything around it, the more I'm starting to worry it's making many of the same mistakes Nintendo has made for the last few generations once again.
Good, no more Mario 3D World! That was such a disappointment!
2D Mario games are quite enough. For me, purchase 3D Mario games are really worthy than 2D. What's so different playing same 2D Mario over and over again even with a little bit of twist ?
Okay, 3D Mario in Subcon with Subcon enemies with eight player individual screens. Drop in Drop Out gameplay. More than eight playable characters and all platform a little differently. With bonus level of Sarasaland (in Game Boy Greyscale, but still 3D) if you beat the game.
Or they're going to do a toys to life mario game with mario series amiibo.
Guess which ones more likely.
""Maybe next E3 we'll be able to share something" Oh my...
@rjejr no, Aonuma said the gamepad breaks gameplay...
@TsukiDeity unless, Yooka Lay-lee is their inspiration
@Kirk hardly, they aim to make NX actually easy to code (one problem of wii U)
they are delaying the game for Zelda Breath of the wild, (Chris Moffat said that. and Miyamoto explains with Monolith Soft helping on the physics engine.)
(once again, no strong first party from launch with Wii U)
delayed the NX to prepare games by 3rd party devs
(extra points to Nintendo and avoided Sega's Saturn Day debacle.)
power and specs are top secret, Nintendo never discusses those and take 2 ceo wants to work with NX.
the architecture is modern and easy to code for, and Nintendo is aiming for a massive audience. nothing worrying there.
@HSuzumiyaVI What I'm sensing is that for one issue Nintendo thinks it's fixing it's possibly ignoring one other issue or just introducing another new issue in some annoying and unnecessary way.
@HSuzumiyaVI "no, Aonuma said the gamepad breaks gameplay..."
Well, he also said the game was coming out in 2015, so what does he know, missed that date by 2 years.
@rjejr this was explained by Miyamoto who claims 100 employees from Monolith soft is working on Breath of the wild.
the physics engine needed to be coded to take control of the wii U and it shows. currently 2 teams are working on the NX and wii U version.
@HSuzumiyaVI Why are you still replying to my comments after you told me to leave Ntinedo?
I haven't changed my name ever or my avatar recently. If you don't want me here, you certainly shouldn't be reading my comments, and why bother replying to me?
@rjejr I comment based on the article, what I said on another article was me getting enraged at the whole situation.
@HSuzumiyaVI If you don't want to be enraged, I can only suggest not reading the comments w/ my name and avatar next to them. Probably 80% will enrage you, 15% you'll be indifferent, and 5 % will make you laugh. It's probably not worth the risk of a 1 in 20 chance you'll gt the laugh. Probably best not to read any comments by Kirk, Mahe, Quorthon, Gatorboi either. A lot of negative people on here the past few years, we don't understand Japanese culture apparently and our western way of thinking is just stupid.
Spoiler Alert, It's Super Mario Odyssey.
It's great fun to go back in time to prior E3s, isn't it?
Though I get the feeling I wasn't as around as much as I would have liked @ this time. Not only that, all I remember is criticizing the naming convention of "breath of the wild" when it was revealed...
