Its the bigger and better sequel to the fastest selling, and best selling, 3DS game. The answer is a "No duh."

3ds =/= wiiU

can you people please stop comparing a handheld to consoles

Why not? NSMB sold well, and NSMBW sold well.

Let's look at how games in the franchises that are releasing this year have previously sold.

NSMBW - 27 million
SMG - 12 million
SM3DL - 8 million
DKCR - 6 million
LoZ:SS - 3.5 million
OoT3D - 3 million

So with Wind Waker 3D, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, and Super Mario 3D World, Nintendo is looking to have a stellar liineup this Fall/Holiday season in terms of best selling franchises. Mario Kart and Smash Bros. will hopefully continue to sell the system, but I don't think they're necessary for people to buy the system this year, a good Mario platformer is all people really need.

And that's not even bringing up Wii U Fit and Wii U Party, which also come out later this year (and games in the Wii/Mii series are huge sellers). If Nintendo were smart, they'd get to releasing Wii U Sports in 2014, because even without the system pack-in, Wii Sports Resort is one of their best sellers with over 30 million copies sold. That's the game Nintendo should really have this year.

It will absolutely sell consoles. While it is not as inspiring a release as Super Mario Galaxy was, or Super Mario 3D Land (which had a top down Zelda level that made people abuzz), it is a Mario title, and there are certain expectations of quality with the franchise moniker.

I would have liked to see a return to the open world concept of Super Mario 64, but with that dismissed, I will still add this to my gaming library, even if I don't supplant Super Mario Galaxy or Galaxy 2 for it.
A musical sentence is a motive that is immediately developed upon then drives towards a PAC, IAC, or HC. The PC was likely unallowed due to counterpoint rules.

Duh. Like the game or not, this is the big title game that will help sell units.
7 is good. I swear the school's 75-100 grading scale has ruined peoples perception of things.
