Looks Awesome. I especially like the Goomba disguise and Cat Bullet Bill.

I don't know about you, but my cat isn't really so good at the "climbing all the way up walls" thing.

MARIO IN A GIANT ICE SKATE!

Posted by Abendlaender

Man....I want a WiiU but I don't want a WiiU.....ARGH

Edited by Dietomaha

This looks like pure joy.

Edited by thatdutchguy

Looks really good, If i had a Wii U i would buy this on release.

Edited by Korolev

This, Wonderful 101 and the remake of Zelda Wind-waker have gotten me to consider purchasing a WiiU..... nah. I'll still hold off until at least another price cut.

Edited by BasketSnake

Miiaouuu.

Looks great. Although, I felt like an eight year old with that narrator...

Not sure if it was a good idea for Peach to go first in the tube.

Help a brotha out.

Man this look phenomenal. 3D Land was one of the greatest platformers I've ever played and this looks like that tenfold.

Well, not for her at least.

EDIT: Also, this looks like everything you'd want in a Mario game. Would buy if I owned a Wii U.

Edited by TheMasterDS

This looks way better than what I thought 3D World was going to look like and I thought 3D World was going to be pretty damn good. I'm surprised how much they've built on 3D Land. It looks like a contender for top 5 GOTYs. That's wonderful.

Yeah I winced at that too.

Throwing a shell and then going into it, being propelled along with the momentum is a game changer!

Looks like it is time to finally dust off the ol' Wii U. Glad to see a Mario game that isn't just New Super Mario Bros. again.

MEOOOOWWW

Looks more fun to me than every single next gen launch game combined.

And now that the Wii U is bundled with the other Mario games, I'm leaning towards trading my PS4 preorder even more.

But I could probably hold out til Bayonetta 2 comes around.

Edited by BRINKTheMovieMyFavoriteMovie

That right everyone, now Mario can climb up walls.....just like cats can.

Posted by SeanFoster

I loved Super Mario 3D Land so much and this looks like a gorgeous 1080p version of that, I can't wait. I'm going to be out a job by the time it comes out so you may not see me for a week.

Why is it blue Toad rather than just Toad ass Toad?

Edited by RetroVirus

I don't know why, but something about the character art in that top left corner for each player really makes me nostalgic for old mario games. No idea why, but I just like it a lot.

Edited by steelerzfan101

That narrator...

Posted by Laxaloot

Is it just me or does the voiceover sound more like Brad trying to do his voiceover voice, and not an actual professional?

Posted by SaintOfKillers

@murderslingshot: They probably want to associate each character with a different color and regular toad has red dots on his head.

Edited by MildMolasses

Game looks awesome but I wish nothing but the worst for the people who made this video

Posted by pakattak

Did the person who wrote the copy also do the narration or something?

Game looks awesome. Everything looks tight and well-designed.

Edited by MeatSim

That narrator almost ruined this, but this was still somewhat enjoyable to watch.

I've never seen such consistently positive comments on giantbomb. :)

Edited by Deathpooky

Between the delay to Watch Dogs, price drop, and games coming out for Wii U, this is looking far more tempting as a purchase now than a new PS4/XB1.

Posted by Tesla

Looks really fun. I feel like they're leaning a little too heavily into the whole cat thing though.

I'm getting a Wii U. Never played the Galaxy games and now this, it's Mario time!

Edited by deltaalphabravo

Did I just contemplate buying a WiiU? I need to go and lay down.

Posted by Zaapp1

This looks like 10 games worth of stuff unless they showed like every level. Guess I've got something to play on Wii U now.

Posted by Liquidus

So this is basically Super Mario 3D Land 2...but with WAY more stuff. Alright, I'm in.

Posted by Flex_Rockwell

This looks totally rad. The cat suit is an awesome addition, and it looks like there are a lot of other cool, new things as well.

Posted by wallee321

Wow, its a real shame they did such a terrible job of showing this off at e3, might of held onto my Wii U, if they showed this type of video.

Edited by iragequit

This might move a few wii u units..

WTF IS THIS FURRY SHIT

Posted by Asmo917

"Save the Sprixie (?) Princess from the clutches of Bowser with Mario and company!"

Fuckin' spoilers, man. Not cool, narrator dude.

Edited by indieslaw

Can't help but think that Ryan would have been waaay into Kuribo's Skate.

Posted by BanzaiBandito

Probable game of the year incoming.

Posted by hanner74

Initially while looking at this, i thought "this looks great for my 5 year old son, not necessarily for me." but the more i listen to the narrators voice, the more i feel like Nintendo has just given up.

Posted by financingisfree

I'm sorry, but i can't get behind this game for one reason and one reason only: they missed the opportunity for Mario to grab the catsuit and say "EETS-SA MEEEOOOOWWW"

cmon nintendo. get it together.

all jokes aside, this looks like a friggin system-seller.

Posted by radioactivez0r

5 Marios bounding around....what. With that new Mario/Luigi console announcement, I think it's just a matter of seeing the leaked BF ads now to figure out when/where I want to pick up a Wii U.

Posted by Antarok

Im going to own more than one game for my Wii-U! No longer will it be my Monster Hunter Machine.

Posted by MariachiMacabre

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGH

I might have to get a Wii U for this. It looks absolutely incredible.

Take this advise very seriously. Wonderful 101 is great.
