Might be. It's hard to tell but they look skeletal to me. They've got spooky eyes at least.

They might be Dry Bones, actually; the head shape looks kinda similar. I wouldn't bet money on it though.

Nah, they're definitely not Dry Bones.  Dry Bones skulls have Koopa Troopa beaks (...for obvious reasons), but these guys seem to have a more humanoid skull thing going on.

At first, I thought the green one was supposed to be a cactus, or maybe like a Shy Guy, but not that I've been looking a bit more, what I thought was a mouth hole is probably a nose hole.  They're definitely skeletal.

You know what they actually sort of look like they could be Dull Bones. It'd be cool to see Mario enemies that aren't traditionally in the main games.

Yeah these are the ones I was thinking of. I can't tell for sure if the new guys have that sort of snout or if they've got flatter humanoid faces though.

A neat (but very unlikely) thought just occurred to me: what if this next game goes back to Sarasaland? It had regions based on Egypt and China and such, so having a Mexico-based region would make sense if Super Mario Land didn't explore all of it.

Green one looks like a cactus person to me.

I'm all for new Mario. It seems like there's a lot of ice for a desert world. Maybe only a certain type of thing can melt it, or it's like in Sonic Generations where the more we do within the world the more it regains its naturalness.

The city is called New Donk City. I think it's important that you all know that.

Anyway game looks great. Can't say I was pushing for a return to the SM64/Sunshine style of levels, but I'm not bothered by them. Game looks gorgeous, and I'm sure it'll be as solid and fun as always.

Looks absolutely amazeballs. So much new (and in many cases, unexpected) stuff and Bowser with a pimp hat. Plus, the fact that we'll have a game as awesome-looking as this one within the first year of Switch makes me even giddier. 

Also, to go along with the "New Donk City" name of that realistic location, people have also spotted numerous Donkey Kong references on the signs and such. Stuff like Diddy's Mart, Dixie Street, and even a nod to K. Rool! VERY unexpected but appreciated fanservice. Never would've thought there'd be this much DK love in a main 3D Mario game. XD

Holy shit this game looks so bizarre crazy and over the top I love it. I'm gonna be honest Mario has gotten stale lately and this game is the type of breath of fresh air that the franchise really needed. I'm definitely getting this game. Also looks like this game is getting a rival.

That trailer was full to the brim with so much fresh, new, exciting stuff! Every time I wonder how the Mario crew can outdo themselves or come up with something new, dag nabbit, they ALWAYS deliver. I can't WAIT to see GameXplain's analysis video on this one.

Why oh why do I have to wait till the holiday season, though? I can't handle the awesomeness of a new 3D Mario AND Sonic game at the same time!
