This seems like a throw-back to super mario world, i cannot wait for this hopefully its easy to play online.~
Hey this one is going to have some new different power ups - like a frog one and it helps him jog while he's in the water levels, that one has not been done ever yo
I'm all for side-scrollers, but NIntendo is overdoing the whole "New" Super Mario Bros thing. Back on the NES, Super Mario Bros 1. 2 and 3 had their own distinct styles that made them feel different from each other. Super Mario World was set in a new location with new types of enemies. The NSMB games are all set in the Mushroom Kingdom, have the same enemies, the same generic level types and even the same vocal sound that says "wha" in its music. I remember when Nintendo was known for innovation.
Nintendo is holding out with a full scale 3D mario game for when Sony and Microsoft release their new consoles just in the same way Microsoft saved halo 3 for Xbox 360
