While I think Galaxy is the better game, this is still great news.

I actually thought 3D Land was the better game. It's my second favorite Mario behind 64. Anyway, I'm glad it's doing this well!

I'd say objectively Galaxy was the better game, but SM3DL was very fun as well

I loved 3D Land, but Galaxy and Galaxy 2 are on whole new plane of amazing. They're two of my favorite games ever. They're perfect platformers IMO.

I actually enjoyed 3D Land more than Galaxy, which is saying a lot because Galaxy is a great game.

The problem with the Galaxy games is that the levels can sometimes overstay their welcome; where as 3D Land was a perfect blend of 2D and 3D Mario gameplay with perfect-sized levels that were great for speed-running while still having the feel of 3D Mario freedom.

i'll agree with that, and hey, to me 8 extra worlds with some recycled levels is a helluva lot better than the damn green stars fetchquest. i really wish they could've found better ways to extend the length of those games instead of making you do the same stuff in old levels to double your star count.

this is very bad news

Galaxy was Nintendo's last masterpiece before completely succumbing to Iwata's evil twisted vision of the future

if a half-assed game like 3D Land outsells it, then you know there is no hope

no hope at all

Obviously when peoples opinion isn't the same as yours, they are wrong...
