    sweeet! a 2-D mario game?!! That's incredible. I never thought they'd go back to 2-D, but this is awesome. Some of my favourite games ever have been 2-D. Tell me this'll be similar to the original games, like an extension of Super Mario World, but in the 21st century!

    this should be a well good game. sometimes it appears that games put really fancy 3d in just for the sake of not looking backwards, but in the end it just makes it more complicated and detracts from the basic game play.


    good move nintendo.

    A DS Lite Mario Bundle seems very likely now :)

    I'll be trading in my DS a week or so before Europe release just to capatalise on revenue before new one wipes second hand value down :)

    I can't wait for this game :) My morning visit to Joystiq told me about this May 7th thing. I got a little happy inside, i mean the games going to be fantastic. But from what I've seen it doesn't look to have the same feel as the strict 2D ones, its all in the level design. what I've seen so are big flatlands. the level themes don't look so good either.

    Heres hoping that the gameplay makes forget the level design and non-fitting graphics.

    They better do this well. After all, a lot of people hold the original 2D Mario series as the greatest series ever. There is a huge fanbase there. A lot of people will be angry if this game doesn't play the same. I reckon. It's like if they brought back the old Apple 2's but with intel chips. Theres just something there that wouldn't feel right. no matter how good it is to run.

    True, if they balls this up then my hopes for Mario 128 will shatter into a million pieces..

    Pretty bad even.

    Funny thing is the NES Mario games had quite a few differences between them, and that's before you get to SMW!

    I noticed. Either a noob or they were playing using the big screen and not used to it.


    You know what I find amazing? The fact that all the characters are 3D models, yet they look crystal clear like sprites when standing still and look far better animated in motion.

    if this is on DS, then what's on the other screen?

    if this is good enough, i might just buy a DS, even though i'll only be using it at home...

    I'm thinking the same thing. I really have no desire for DS but this game looks outstanding. If they do end up doing some type of bundle then I'll strongly consider it.

    there looks like there would be a few other titles that i would like on the DS, but this one if it looks and plays like that most of all.

    Nobody has mentioned the Co-op mode yet! :) Some of the earlier videos showed players controlling Mario and Luigi at the same time in Co-op mode, as do screenshots.
