Time for Nintendo to evolve Mario (Also goes for other Nintendo series)

Mario ain't selling as much anymore. I think it's time for Nintendo to finally change Mario and have a complete overhaul of the franchise. A story and voice acting would be a start. Make us actually care about the characters, have a story that evoke emotions, telling their back stories etc. That's what people want these days (The Last Of Us, The Walking Dead, Bioshock Infinite, for example).

If you care about an engaging story in a Mario game, you're playing it for the wrong reasons.

How about actually making your product better and stand out rather than yelling "me too!" and changing a franchise for a chance to grab one audience at the expense of your core fans?
Sega is what EAin't.

Yeah, they tried going in that direction with Sunshine.

3D World is astounding, so, a half-no to this thread's idea.

I'd LOVE to see Nintendo go full-balls against the wall, but they won't.

3D World is the first 3D one with multiplayer. I hope it does sell well as I like the idea of playable characters controlling differently while also having a variety of new level types. This is the Mario for people that were sick of NSMB, so gamers had better put up or shut up here as there's a reason you don't get artsy looking games like Wario Land: Shake It! anymore either. You didn't buy it.

That's why I bought a WiiU, because I don't have to watch movie games.
