If you had the option, would you pay?

There's like a 99% chance the game would be playable from start to finish without it, so...
Blah.

It'd be a more realistic example to pay $1.99 to unlock a Golden Raccoon Suit or a Golden Fire Flower Suit. Something that will make the game super easy, but not something that just removes an artificial barrier (jump height).

edit: I mean, I know that shareholder or CEO or whoever made this point, but it was a stupid application of microtransactions.

Geez why does this always come up?

And no. Mario games aren't that difficult besides the first game and lost levels. There's the P-wing and the Racoon Suit so why bother.

Unless the game is free-to-play, there is no justification for any sort of microtransactions.

The point of this is to make some areas unreachable unless you pay for that microtransaction, I wouldnt get it but im not a huge fan of platformers

That's never really been a problem in Mario games though. That's be a colossal **** move though making a stage impossible to complete without paying more to make him jump further (in a 2D Mario sense) lol. Anyhow whoever the person is that came up with this idea really should stop getting the attention for this and die in obscurity.
