Thinking about it, this is gonna be the first new Mario game to be a launch title on a Nintendo Console since N64.
Multiplayer? NSMBWii did that already.
Probably gonna do Online. There's no reason for this to not have online Nintendo. And with Miiverse focusing on Online Social interaction, this would be a good way to introduce people into that.
Playing on the Wii U GamePad? Cool, but doesn't really add to gameplay.
Makes me wonder what they're going to do with the Gamepad. Same with NSMB2. I hope it's something more then just holding items.
Unless this game has super-awesome level design like SMW, I'm not that crazy about it. Though I suppose some minor improvements could add up to something great - IF there's enough of them. Stuff like more Yoshi abilities, more powerups, improved physics (weren't really a problem, but still), hidden secrets, etc.
Well at least they got two of them down. More Yoshi powers and power-ups. And I gotta agree, the NSMBWii game was slippery at times, which really affected judgement on tiny platforms. While the level design wasn't bad or anything in the Wii game, it was okay. I won't compare this to other games like Origins, but on it's own it was alright. With 4 Players it was fun but on your own it was okay. I still liked it though.
Also, regardless of how good the game is, if the plot doesn't involve Peach getting kidnapped, I will buy it day-one, no questions asked.
It's a Mario game. The last main Mario game to not have this plot was.... Super Mario Bros. 2? The Super Mario Lands?
OK, seriously? I've been saying this about the squirrel suit from the start.
Oh, I forgot about your comment, I'll give ya recognition too.
