False advertising buttholes. Where's my mouse doing a Riverdance where he throws bombs? Where's my Hydra you beat with buckets of cement? WHERE'S MY HAWK DOOR THAT BECOMES A FLYING EVIL HAWK HEAD!?

Not sure if I'll get this. If there is a nifty multiplayer element... maybe

Don't you dare question Ninendo's completely logical naming conventions!

I hate the style of these games. I miss my pixel art 2D Mario games...

@FreakAche:

Then what would you call a modern Super Mario Bros. 2 style platformer?

I love these games and don't really mind the use of 3D models for the characters, however yes the backgounds, colouring and general style I've always thought were very bland and boring.

Everyone's overlooking the apparent fact that the raccoon tail helps Mario fly the way it's supposed to: i.e., like he did in Mario Bros. 3

Oh you mean that non-Mario game where they replaced the characters with Mario gang sprites?

Yeah, that would be awesome if they did that (+stereoscopic 3D). Anyway, I hate to say it, but I'm probably going to pick this up, the first one was good, and there's really not an abundance of 3DS stuff...

I'm unabashedly a sucker for any Mario platformer. Sign me the fuck up.

Where's my favorite transgender mini-boss who's unborn children I must intercept in mid-air and attack him/her with?

@MikkaQ:

Let's just hope they keep her (his?) transparent stomach that was retconned out of later games for no reason.

Looks decent enough, nothing worth buying a 3DS over but still Mario has the tendency of being good.
