The same game engine doing the exact same things with minor additions. Freaking love that stuff. I mean, just look at Galaxy 2, NSMB Wii, and now this!
Forget about any real milestones or knowing just how to make your platinum-selling IP fresh again, just grab a bunch of guys to design another 8 worlds, another guy to design a new costume, exclude the ocean of features that you couldn't add in (because the development was busy enough making an entirely new game engine and totally original textures and enemies to do the impossible and add, say, a level creator or online multiplayer co-op). Give your fans what they've been waiting for: the kind of experience that got them into gaming! What? Immersing yourself in something fresh and new? No, I mean put yourself in the same GAME as before. After all, the same thing all over again=the same freshness you felt when you first saw it, duh.

OP is right, but Galaxy 2 changed so much things that justified the purchase.
I still can't fathom how people justify the same world design and recolors of a character acceptable when it isn't. --- So I'm still waiting for Daisy to reappear in something that's not a spinoff. I'll probably end up dying first or something but optimism is fun.

I honestly agree that Nintendo should have introduced the Wii U with a truly original Mario to reel in new and old consumers alike. It's fairly obvious that this game is a simple little title with a small budget that Nintendo want to plunk out fairly quickly so they can get instant sales from day 1. However, there's no way that Nintendo aren't working on a new and original 3D Mario game that will be released somewhere down the line.
Call me a fanboy, but I have 100% faith in Nintendo to make a completely new and innovative Mario game that they will release by 2013-14 the latest, as they will do with all their major franchises. I'm buying a Wii U based off of this hope, along with the fact that I do genuine want to play a lot of their launch games as well.

I think it's smart to give us a guaranteed good Mario game right off the bat. We said we want games, ones that we know and love right from the start, and that's what we're getting. If you don't want to play a Mario game, then don't play it, but people love Mario. Personally, the new level designs and suits are what I look forward to. Why do people feel the need that classics have to be revamped every time and become something different? Why change what it is that people love about the games? --- Pokemon Platinum FC: 1891 7076 4490 Standard Rules
Whoops, forgot that SMB first released in 1985. Edited. Thanks, MrHayes77! --- I am the Cashew Swordsman! I am ProtoPiranha's eternal mortal arch-rival! [This perspective was repressed at the request of a moderator or administrator]

Honestly, I think you guys just want Nintendo to stop making 2D Mario games altogether. --- Swagodile's alt.

Also, If you don't like it, don't buy it. I think it's great and the changes they have made are going to be new and exciting. --- Pearl FC 3909 4588 9972 White FC 0905 6248 6243
