Was just about to post the exact same thing. We are now best friends.

I love mario platforming, I enjoyed new super mario bros for ds, I'll be purchasing this.

This looks fun,but the graphics need some improvement i think...

Nintendo's approach to Mario is pretty much unique.
 
While other studios focus on adding dispensable plots, rebooting the characters or awkwardly hammering in the mechanic du jour to stay relevant, Nintendo is releasing a game that someone who just woke up from a 24 year long coma could instantly get to grips with.
 
Even after refining the same game for two and a half decades they haven't lost the vibrancy and playfulness that made it so enjoyable the first time around. I'm really looking forward to this.

You're not serious. I hope you're not serious.
It's a goddamned Mario game. It's not supposed to be OMG GRAFIX.

To be fair, this does look like it can be on the DS. You'd expect them to have a a better looking character model for Mario after SMG and Brawl.

I know its a Mario game,but this looks like a DS game.
Mario Galaxy is another story in graphics
But yeah,gameplay is more important

Will get it at some point. Maybe for christmas. Shit looks awesome.

I'm already annoyed by the jump sounds.

Posted by AV_Gamer

Looks like a SNES game. Poor Wii. It's sad when the best selling game for a console is hardly a game at all.

ICE FLOWER, SON

Posted by El33tPanda

Man, this is what the market needed, another MARIO game!

Posted by theberserker

I don't even own a Wii but I'd love to play this.

Posted by Griddler

You know, I wanna say I've played this game before.

Posted by PlasmaMachine

I fail to see why people are outraged or disappointed at a 2D sidescrolling Mario game that isn't even released yet.

Posted by TheHBK

i cant believe that it took Nintendo 11 years? since the release of Super Mario 64 that a new 2d sidescroller would be a fucking good idea, keep these coming!  but, some part of me still wishes they had used a super high res 2d engine instead, to capture the cartoony look better.  looks great, but oh man, imagine super mario world looking super sweet, like braid.  Amazing.

Posted by Tebbit

Mario Galaxy had an Ice Flower WAY before this! 
 
I'm boycotting.

Posted by Media_Master

Sound track is good.

Posted by MichaelBach

Some more of this stuff and I will consider getting a wii

Posted by MeatSim

I like that song for some reason.

Posted by Kraznor

Actually starting to get a little bit excited about this one, but that has to be the worst title ever. Why not call it Super Mario Bros. 4? It would add a ton of prestige and nostalgia to the game, not to mention it has four player co-op. Double Meaning!!

Posted by Hamst3r

I really hate the run animation in the newer Mario games. It's like Mario is leaning back and swinging his arms straight out to the side. It also looks like he's sliding on ice all the time. Just doesn't look right and like it could be distracting / detrimental to timing jumps.

Posted by Jimbo7676

Pow Block anyone?

Posted by bybeach

2 Games now for my nephew, but i bet his parents will get him this one, i`ll do boy and his blob..

Posted by Siriusface

/agree with all those who say 2d would've been better.  Because they're right.

Shit, that was the only thing in my mentally prepared rant that hadn't been said yet, with the others being: 
 
Graphics (as in, a 'fuck off' statement to those complaining about them) 
POW Block's mighty return 
Ice Flower was already in Galaxy, albeit with different effects 
 
As well as agreeing wholeheartedly with:

Still, the game looks fun, and if any of Mario's OVER 9000!!! titles are an indication, it will be fun. 
 
Shame that for most people these days, something doesn't look fun unless it looks realistic. In turn, something doesn't look realistic unless it was the apocalypse overnight and everything's gone to shit, including the colour palette.  
 
Oh yeah, I was going to say at some point, somewhere on the internet that if they wanted to put Mario in 4D (as they said in E3 that they did want to) then why not just do what Yahtzee mentioned in his E3 hype massacre and make Super Mario Time-Space-Continuum? But I suppose that's for another article/video/slow day where I actually want to comment on anything.

This seems pretty cool, don`t think I`ll get it on release day though :(

Posted by gormers
@XXL_Bomb:  Same here.
 
@PlasmaMachine:
 Because it looks depressingly derivative, without any sense of originality. I mean the graphics is almost exactly like the DS new super mario bros, and they use the same song here, only with what seems to be a worse midi quality.

MARIO

Posted by tyger_cheex

It doesn't show any multi-player power-up grabbing action. Does the game still pause the action for EVERYONE as a player power-ups?

Posted by ocdog45

yeah, ice flower
Posted by advocatefish2

Getting this for my Girlfriend for Christmas. That house will go up in flames if her family plays it together.

Posted by LordAndrew

I thought this was going to basically be New Super Mario Bros. again, but it looks like it's much more than that. Man, this game deserves a much better title than what they're giving it. Who thought it would be a good idea to append "Wii" to the end of game titles?

Posted by lawlerballer

yay finally a good mario game
