I recently watched the trailer on the Japanese site, and I'm not sure if the animations are better, or if there's a higher framerate, but it looks better than the DS version to me.

who wants to bet that getting 1 million coins gets you Luigi in single player? (I can only hope...)

on another note: I finally managed to beat Super Mario Bros. today (i admit i had to use the 3-1 infinite lives trick). now onto The Legend of Zelda...

Instead of using the infinite lives trick, I am using restore points. But, I can't get past 5-2. Every level before 5-2 was easy, but this level is so annoying.

I hope the reward for getting 1 million coins is a 1-UP.

I'm sure Luigi will be available from the start. With co-op and all.

Collecting 1 million coins will be the equivalent of a Metroid ending. Mario takes off all his clothes o.o

I noticed something. In the latest trailer where Mario turns into mega Mario from ths Mushroom. Remember in New Super Mario Bros. on the DS where a meter would appear on top when Mario went to Mega Mario and depending on how much he destroyed like bricks and pipes. 1-Up mushrooms would appear, in the trailer we don't see that. Though I understand since we are already getting a ton of extra lives from the coins anyway. I don't see the problem with having too many lives, I own NSMB DS and NSMB Wii and never received a game over, so really this won't be different. We will just get extra lives quicker.

On the DS version, did anybody notice Luigi was better than Mario? He was faster and jumped higher.

That's how it's been since SMB2. The negative part to Luigi is the traction and that he's slides and is harder to land directly.

No, but in all seriousness, someone else's score doesn't automatically mean that's what it will be for you. Critics may love a game while you may hate it, or visa versa. I know a lot of users here will like the game, and I know a lot of them won't. We all have opinions, so just with yours.

I just didn't like how the camera moved. It was fun but I just really prefer side scrollers for Mario.

Super Mario 3D Land was a 3D platformer and New Super Mario Bros. 2 is a 2D platformer, it should be completely side-scrolling.

3 reasons:

1. It's a sidescroller, so unlike FPS, gamers won't be getting any chances to inspect character models/textures up close. Therefore, Nintendo doesn't need to unnecessarily throw in GDLK textures.

2. Considering the game, most assets will be reused multiple times, meaning a single goomba character model is needed in order to generate every goomba in the game.

3. I'm sure Nintendo made sure to make this game's size as small as possible in order to not throttle their own servers when this game launches.

Japan is so lucky. They get the game this weekend. While NA, Europe and Australia have to wait until mid August. Usually there's only a few weeks or days difference when it comes to Mario games in different regions. I fear that the longer wait between Japan and everywhere else will have a better chance for spoilers to spread like wildfire. I don't want the final boss and whatever happens when you get 1,000,000 coins spoiled.

Wait people, there is a benefit to getting it digitally! If you change your zipcode in the U.S to one with no sales tax, you'd would pay less. Its less for me because I live in Cook county which has the highest sales tax in the nation.

Two videos that caught my interest:



Alright, a new enemy... "Boohemoth"...  I like that name... FAR bigger than Big Boo, or even Boolossus... Because apparently this Boo's really, REALLY fat.



Wait, is that the same voice for Roy used in New Super Mario Bros. Wii? I need to go back and play that game again. Also, this game mode actually looks more interesting then the main game.

I didn't want this game at all when I first heard about it, but it's looking a whole lot more fun and intriguing now lol.

A Boohemoth? That is one chubby looking Boo. xD

I also came across this comic the other day. I don't know if anyone has seen it before, but it just reminded me of the discussions (and arguments lol) about Wario not being the star of NSMB2.

Spoiler!

Ever since Super Mario 64, I've been a complete sucker for the 3D Mario games so I wasn't too interested in this game when I first heard about it. My interest was definitely sparked when I found out about having to get 1,000,000 coins, since I definitely enjoy a good challenge and a game with a long term goal other than "beating the story".

I just bought my 3DS a few days ago with Super Mario 3D Land so I don't see myself wanting another Mario platformer right away, but I would definitely consider picking up this game later on.

This game is really intruguing me at all. Maybe when I see people's opinions and some walkthroughs, I might be a tad bit interested...

Im just really excited to find out what you actually get after collecting a million coins, i'm hoping its a 'play as Wario' or unlocking of a Special world like in NSMB Wii.

Knowing Nintendo, a congratulatory picture commemorating your success. XD Still an exciting goal nevertheless. I'm looking forward to this Mario sidescroller.

It actually won't take that long. Considering some levels can get you coins in the thousands, and then if you reach the top of the flag at the end, it doubles that.

These two are the least likely, in my opinion. I predict you will get a special world or congratulations or maybe a final boss level, and also a message saying something along the lines of "Congratulations! You have earned one million coins! *Music* Now, collect as many coins as you can!"

Will the total count continue to raise, even after you reach the million goal? Honestly, I'd rather it cap and remain at 1,000,000. My gaming OCD wouldn't be all too happy to see a final count of "1,003,291".

True but I think some like holding it in there hands. however buying the digital has its pros like not going to the store if you can't find a ride or in my case just don't want too since I'm lazy

Thanks to that video I have a strategy. Keep replaying 1-1 getting 100 coins each time so I play it 10,000 times.( maybe easier after I beat the game with 9999 coins for each level.

Now that I've seen some gameplay videos, the 1,000,000 coins goal seems much harder then I thought. Some person unlocked Luigi and their coin total was still only about 25,000. 0_0

Wonder how long it will take until some crazy asian get 1 million. Naturally, there will be someone playing it 24:7 until they achieve this, lol.

That's just what I thought when I was given that challenge. 10 million might have been a bit more difficult, maybe even 5 million, but a mere million? With all the coin-based power-ups, it seems pretty easy to me.

You know, if you just enjoy the game and don't rush through it getting every coin you see, getting to the 1,000,000 mark probably will take a little longer than you think.

According to someone who translated the japanese website, the site itself says that what you get is what you mentioned on the spoiler tag. If that's true, then this whole getting a million coins thing only built up to a major disappointment.

Still, the game looks pretty good IMO and besides the music being the same, the boss fights being pathetically easy and the possible 1 million coin prize let down, I see no problems with it.

Okay I think it's clear that the

isn't the 1 million coin Grande Prize, the photo is clearly photoshopped or whatever, and there are no other videos or pics to clarify it's validity. It's probably the

I watched most of them, and the bosses I watched were disappointingly easy... Even though when bosses are extremely hard it drives me nuts, I kind of like to have more of a challenge.

Oh that's too bad then, but it's what I expected. I didn't have a hard 2D Mario boss since... SMW Reznors? I hope the Reznors here are somewhat close to what they were in SMW.

The 2D Mario games aren't known for their hard bosses, so it's okay.

That is true. Nintendo usually saves the really hard bosses for console Marios, like the insanely hard bosses on Super Mario Galaxy. They probably focus more on the platforming and such for the handheld Mario games.

^No. The average Bros. game has 8 worlds. Wii has 9. 2 too. It's therefore fine. Also, the game has 80+ levels. NSMB had exactly 80.

2D Mario games, sadly are always short. But this one seems to have even more replay value than previous titles.

Meh, not surprised actually.

Think about it though, in Pokemon (excluding B/W 2) what was the reward for catching all the pokemon?

Spoiler!

Just something to think about...

Then again, Nintendo did kind of hype it up when they said there was a reward for collecting 1,000,000 coins.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm not buying this game purely because I was "promised" a reward at 1 million coins. I'm buying this game because I want to play Mario!

Oh, and coin rush mode too.

I wasn't expecting much, but I didn't think it was going to be that underwhelming.

This, even a new cut-scene would have sufficed.

After reading and watching some reviews, I'm probably gonna get this game. In a few months. It seems really fun, but it just isn't that different. NSMBU looked and still looks WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better.

^.^ Wasn't expecting anything at all for collecting 1,000,000 coins. The accomplishment of collecting all those coins is a big enough reward for me.( sounds cheesy but oh well ) Guess I know Nintendo all too well. lol

Nope, two cartridges are needed for co-op play.

I must say the reviews and gameplay has made this entry in the franchise a little disappointing but since I've never played a NSMB game before, I think I'll go ahead with the purchase.

And like some others have been saying, the "reward" for collecting 1 million coins is rather lame.

That is ****ing RIDICULOUS. I mean, I want to play it with my family. But who the F**K is going to buy 2 games within one household? Did they really not think or care about that? I know almost no one with a 3DS in real life except my sis. Screw you Nintendo.

Rant over. It's still LAME and a huge dissapointment. Also no online? Nintendo really needs a kick in the face. Someone who tells them about what people expect nowadays.

"Mario titles always have
secrets for the dedicated to find, but
NSMB2 brings back that magical feeling of
finding a secret that past Mario games had.
It inspires a real curiosity, the kind we
haven’t felt in a Mario game since
childhood."

Awesome! Gameradar also praised the game for its difficulty.

A lot of people would be less disapointed if Nintendo didn't make such a big deal about the prize for college a million coins.

If you look on the eshop, theres a special level. Looks like the goldmine to collect 1,000,000

I was really considering this seeing how a friend of mine already has the money set down to buy it opening day. But then I heard no Wifi-2 player. So I'll stick to getting 3D land instead. (of course AFTER I get kingdom Hearts)

I agree with that point, they did sort of "hype" it up a lot. Maybe there is more than meets the eye...

If you have to be 20 feet from each other, then just get the wii version.

well, i did see a video on the eShop called "Iwata Asks: New Super Mario Bros. 2". At one point the guy answering(or maybe it was Iwata. I don't know.)said,"It's true we've never made two Mario games at the same time." This means that they're working on both New Super Mario Bros. 2 and New Super Mario Bros. U.

If I recall correctly, I think this game was made by a younger team of developers to get their feet wet in making Mario games. The other team (the main team) is working on the NSMBU.

I might be wrong, but I remember hearing that somewhere.

Nintendaan posted on twitter that the game itself was pretty fun, but when you start trying to collect coins, it loses it's charm. If I do pick it up, I'll probably end up playing through without intentionally getting coins. Maybe once I beat it I will get them, but that's only IF I get it.

However, the game has been recieving fairly good reviews.
IGN gave it an 8.5/10
NintendoLife gave it a 9/10
Joystiq gave it a 3.5/5
Famitsu gave it 36/40 (about 9/10)

Raising my hopes a little bit!

Nope. They worked in big groups and made very unique levels that would eventually become polished and put into the game. But they weren't inexperienced. The game was taken from their ideas, but it still kept the same directors that made 3D Land.

They mean somethings, but not everything. For example, IGN's score informed us that the 3D sucks, but the graphics themselves are fine.

I'm not saying that you are gonna like the game that much, but I am saying that this isn't a complete failure due to what we've seen.

I think it depends on the kind of person you are. I like to base my idea of how good games are before I buy them based on critic reviews and player reviews. However, I take them with a grain of salt. Some critics thought Kid Icarus was just okay, but I think it's one of the best games out there, even on par with OOT (that of course is personal opinion from me ).

The point is, critic/player reviews should play just a small part when thinking about buying a game, not the entire thing.

I agree, I play through a game and when I'm done always say "I wish I could have changed..." but while playing it, not to say there was hope it could still happen, but I wasn't complaining as much (if at all, depending on the game)

I just want to say: LOL @ All the people saying Mario is going the COD route. Activision releases a CoD every year. Nintendo releases Bros. games every 3 years. And really what could they "innovate" except for new levels, powerups, enemies and music? Nothing. It would **** the formula up.

Am I the only one that's NOT going to buy this due to it looking like another rehash of the DS version? That and I hear it's going to be a grind-fest, think mario kart 7 without the gokarts.

Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

But in all seriousness, I actually don't think this is a rehash of the DS version as much as the wii version. The graphics do look improved because its the 3ds, and the levels look fun. The only thing rehashed is the music (which I still like anyways).

I'm not going to be getting it for a little while. It's looks too easy, more of the same(NOTHING new), and I have a few other games I still have to beat.

Like said in my previous post: what kind of new thing would you honestly want in a Mario Bros. game? I admit, there's a lack of new power-ups, enemies... I can't judge soundtrack yet, but the artstyle just... works. I mean, look at all those bestseller games nowadays: they are all just realistic looking. And people don't bash that? Because **** you that's why. :/

I'm not getting it until maybe day 4 or 5 because I couldn't preorder it. I'm going to be chasing it like crazy all through my city to see if maybe I can grab a copy in day 1. I hate this, it happened to me with KI:U and with Theatrhrythm Final Fantasy. One because I didn't have "the time" to go pre-order it, the other because I had no money.

I don't care if it is similar to NSMB, I like Mario and I love the sidescrolling Marios, I just want to watch that short, fat plumber jump over some koopas and pick up obscene quantities of coins in a colourful and tridimensional environment. And if the music is as good as NSMB, then I'm totally going to love it.

That's only if you try really hard to get to a million coins quickly.
Just play the game for fun, not as a race to collect coins, and there will be no grinding at all.

A cool aspect of the coin collecting is the total count on the website.

The art style just look so lazy.

Compare the following 3DS screenshots:





Rayman Origins looks amazing, almost like a painting, whereas in NSMB2 you can easily tell that everything is locked to a grid, making it look blocky and not nearly as breathtaking as Rayman Origins.

Wow. For a minute i thought the second one was NSMB1. It looks almost exactly like the DS game.

You might want to check where that screenshot is from. They had some screenshots for the 3ds, but when I actually played the demo of Rayman Origins 3ds it looked different. It was still nice looking, but different. This just looks too nice to be a screenshot from the 3ds.

But that's how the art style in 2D Mario games has always been. Rayman Origins was going for a cartoon-like design, even more than the original games; a change which I didn't like personally. But seriously the two series are not going in the same direction, they're not the same IP. Let them be different.

Would mario even look like mario with super HD graphic quality? No. Same goes for lots of nintendo titles. Nintendo has good titles that. Do you really want Mario in skyrim graphics? I don't

True, the 3DS version of Rayman Origins looks awful compared to HD consoles but the art style is still the same.

Also it could just be the demo, the final game will probably look better.

If they're going to keep the blocky, grid-locked art style then a level creator would've been a perfect addition to the game. Obviously it'd be impossible for Rayman Origins to have a level creator but it seems like such a missed opportunity with NSMB2.

Actually the first Rayman had a level editor. I tried to use it when I was a kid but I was a kid, it was too complex for me.

I saw some of the first few levels of gameplay of Rayman Origins 3ds. Sadly, although it looks decent enough, it is definitely not as good as one of the other console versions (which is a darn shame).

And a level editor would make NSMB2 much more awesome! Unfortunately, this will never happen

Rayman Origins looks amazing, almost like a painting, whereas in NSMB2 you can easily tell that everything is locked to a grid, making it look blocky and not nearly as breathtaking as Rayman Origins.
True, but would such a style fit the Mario series? Don't think so. The NSMB style feels natural. But I admit, NSMB2 looks a bit bland. But look at NSMBU, that **** is beautiful.

How about they make another 8-bit Mario? Just like Capcom did with Megaman. And release it as an eShop title. I would buy the **** out of it.

Yeah, and games aren't about graphics, they're about the gameplay. Sure repeating it gets old, but c'mon, that doesn't automatically make it a bad game.

Everyone would. Or if they just released something like the Lost Levels, that would sell like crazy simply because people saw Mario in it. Actually, Nintendo probably will seeing as it's already been released in Japan

It's nice to see people who aren't all about the graphics. I have too many friends who are like that, and it makes me angry sometimes.

From my experience the games that developers put a lot of effort into graphically have good gameplay.

Graphics aren't my problem with NSMB2. It's the cost they expect you to pay for a game that has hardly changed both graphically and gameplay-wise.

Well, Mario games never truly shy away from their original gameplay formula. Sure they will add something to spice it up like Yoshis or Super Leaves (or in this case just grabbing coins), but I don't think it truly changes.

Graphically, yes it does look like the NSMBWii version, but this is a sequel (more or less) to NSMB, and compared to that version I think the graphics have improved. Not by a HUGE amount but they are better.

The thing I'm pretty freaking disappointed in is that this game may be the most pathetic attempt of the Mario series to introduce "new" enemies. There were like, what, 5 enemies introduced! All of which were just boring variations of the ones we know and love. The website doesn't need a "new enemies" page.

It's only 10 days from now, woot! I love playing 2D Marios. They are one of the best things ever. Nothing better than stomping Goombas, running through a level using mah mad skillz, and finding hidden exits and star coins!

My main gripes with this game:
1. The graphical style hasn't changed anything, and it looks very bland. The characters also have very crispy edges, which isn't acceptable if the art style isn't anything different or beautiful
2. It's too similar to other NSMB titles.
3. It's short.
4. Lives don't mean anything anymore (like in SMB)

The gameplay is still fun, but I'd play NSMB or NSMBWii if I want to play this. I like series that change every game a little, while still keeping the core gameplay the same (eg. LoZ).

I guess this just isn't for me.

1. Thats fair, but again, like I said before, it's improved from the original NSMB.
2. Well, it is a part of the NSMB series :3 (But its true, it does take a lot from the wii version)
3. It does look short from what I've seen, but some (if not most of us) haven't actually played it yet, so we won't know for sure until it comes out.
4. I can agree with the lives thing there, at this point (especially in this game) they dont really mean a whole lot.

I agree but I like to add:
3. all Marios are short. Deal with it, this one actually has the most levels ever!
4. Doesn't make it a worse game.

3. I choose to deal with whatever I want. Always being short isn't an excuse.
4. It makes it less challenging and less enjoyable, in combination with it being short you will finish it quickly, unlike games like SMB or SMB3.

Oh so because the other mario games are worse at this, then we should accept this one? If its still short, its still short. We still have the right to say so. And instead of "Dealing with it" I just won't buy the game. It isn't worth it.

At this rate, it kind of... isn't. Not a CoD fan at all, but at least those games have fun multiplayer modes to keep it going, what do the Mario games have at this stage... so far all I'm seeing for this one is a crapton of coins. Also, someone says something bad about a Mario game, first response is "At least its better than CoD!"... not a good comeback.

I have to disagree, sorry. I'm not a fan of CoD games, but they have a ton of replayability due to the multiplayer modes. NSMB games don't. You beat the game, collect everything and then what? Start a new file?

I am going to queue up with everyone disagreeing with this.

While I do agree that Call of Duty is basically 60 dollar DLC each year/a subscription to keep playing a similar game, at least there is enough replayability in the multiplayer for people to keep playing for a year.

Finishing NSMB2 in a week is not difficult at all.

I can finish both in a veeery short time. Most levels are one-try win for me, except World 8s.

And I still play classic games as well. What's your point? Just because you play the same thing over and over again with nothing changing doesn't mean that it has a lot of re-playability. Playing CoD online will at least let you meet new people, creating strategies with them, and just an entirely different experience every time.

Ooooo, it seems I struck a nerve with some of you. Please realize that is personal opinion.

Why don't we steer back towards Mario shall we?

Its funny, we were debating about the New Super Mario Bros series. Tell us more about games unrelated to the debate at hand.

Any true Mario fan would know that Nintendo specifically makes Mario games for the designed levels and puzzles (that make a Mario game well...a Mario game), which to me are quite fun to replay every now and then. Nintendo is even trying to make New Super Mario Bros. 2 less repetitive by adding DLC Coin Rush levels. Though I have to agree with the downgraded difficulty compared with SMB & SMB3.
What? CoD is on the 3DS?!?! mmmhmmm I thought not. XD

Well, I was born in the 80's, we had dinosaurs, aliens and lasers. And an ever lasting promise of a future with 3D. Now we have 3D, so that makes everything epic to me.

I've tried playing Theatrhythm Final Fantasy with no 3D (the game doesn't have that many things worth the 3D) and I can't, I must have the 3D on all the time. It's just like, epic, man. Epic.

I think the reason it hurts my eyes (and head) is because I have heavy astigmatism. I'm not sure if thats the reason, but I blame it :P

What do you guys think I should do? So I pre-ordered New Super Mario Bros. 2 at EB GAMES for $69. Now this does come with the bonus little Mario game case, which I think is really cool. Having a coin that holds a game! But the problem is I haven't got much money! As I work in a family business which is closing next month I won't have a job. And where I live there isn't much. So if I cancel the pre-order and buy it at Dick Smith's for $50 with no bonus I save $20. And if I use that $20 and add $8 more I could get TT FF too! So 2 games at $80! I really can't dicide since there isn't much on this bonus. Please 3DS Forums, Your my only hope.

Why would you pay 20 bucks for a cheap plastic case that will break 3 days after you have it? It's worth like 1 buck. Go buy it for $50.

I don't get it. If the other Marios that we know and love are short, and this game isn't any different except it apparently has more levels, why would you pay for the previous Marios and not this one? Wouldn't you never buy a Mario game if they're all short and especially shorter than this one?

It's like Sonic games. They've always been short, so it would be weird to complain after two decades of playing Sonic that it isn't worth buying the latest Sonic because it's short.

But anyway, NSMB2 at least has an additional mode and multiplayer, and Mario games have always thrived on intelligent level design for their replayability. It's fine to not want to buy it because it's short or because you don't find there is much of a replay value, but to your question that "Oh so because the other mario games are worse at this, then we should accept this one?," I say yes. You never bought the previous Mario games? I did and that's why I accept this one, especially if it has more levels.

It's like Sonic games. They've always been short, so it would be weird to complain after two decades of playing Sonic that it isn't worth buying the latest Sonic because it's short.

But anyway, NSMB2 at least has an additional mode and multiplayer, and Mario games have always thrived on intelligent level design for their replayability. It's fine to not want to buy it because it's short or because you don't find there is much of a replay value, but to your question that "Oh so because the other mario games are worse at this, then we should accept this one?," I say yes. You never bought the previous Mario games? I did and that's why I accept this one, especially if it has more levels.
The complaint with this game is that its the Sonic 4 of Mario games. Steals 95% from past titles (Or in this case, Nsmb titles) with 5% originality. Except unlike Sonic 4, this one will be heralded by the masses who always gobble up any Mario title and claim its 10/10, which will make Nintendo realize once again, if you slap Mario on a game, it'll sell better then reviving old franchises or making fresh ips. End of rebuttal.

Reading into nothing I see. I never once said I bought the other mario games.

I never said I like the sonic games either actually. I've never had anything against them, but Generations and Adventure 2 are the only ones I ever truly enjoyed.

They used to be intelligently made, but as of late, Mario games have been getting more and more bland. SM3DL is a certain sign of that. Now the best thing they have is "COINS!"

That's good for you, but I do not find "well the other games were worse" as a good excuse for this game being short at all.

Actually I really thought SM3DL was rather good. It had that Super Mario 64 feel but with smaller levels.

I will admit, the gimmick is rather silly (I do agree that's more Wario's thing), but I think maybe that it seems bland because we (as in older adults) aren't the true targeted audience for this kind of game anymore. We have our older Mario games when we were kids, and these games are now for the younger ones.

I'm not using this as an excuse for why they keep the same, general formula, but for the reason why some might think the Mario series is becoming bland to them.

Yes, we're not the target for nearly anything nintendo does this days. Still not a reason not to enjoy their games. I think this whole New Super Mario thing is made for the new generations, as the name implies, a New Super Mario Bros for the new generations, the experience we had with Mario Bros when we were kids, but with better graphics and music. I think we are the target for games like Super Mario Galaxy, or Sunshine, those who continued with the Super Mario 64 line.

And yeah, I'm not that excited about the whole coin thing but, hell, it's a new Mario and I must have it because of reasons.

So did you or did you not pay for the other Mario games? Because it's weird to go on a thread dedicated to the latest Mario game and say that the game isn't worth $40 because it has the same or better longevity than the previous ones, which most of us here have paid for since it's a Mario thread.

As Nedcone said, if there's a problem with this game is it's not innovative enough, not that it has the same longevity as the previous entries.

That's not a rebuttal. I never said lack of innovation wasn't a problem with this game, I responded to someone who was saying the game isn't worth $40 because just like its very popular predecessors it's not very long. That's not the problem to anyone that has bought and loved the previous entries. The problem, as you said, is probably the lack of innovation.

What did that have to do with anything?
My grammatical errors were typing mistakes from typing too fast if your gonna complain about THAT too. :/ I enjoy Mario games for those purposes, if you don't like it, don't buy Mario games ever again, I couldn't care less. What I meant by puzzles is the unique way to complete a level which is different every time. Thats all.

1. NSMB was the last Mario game I bought, with SM3DL being a gift from a relative. I rented NSMBW and beat it in a weekend.

2. I went onto this thread to see if the game actually is good or not, and noticed someone saying "Well its short, but better than the other Mario games, so deal with it!" which is not how to deal with something.

3. Other people have been complaining as well, its a discussion, we are allowed to say our opinions as well.

Seems rather harsh. It would make more sense for me to buy the Mario games I enjoy(with are mainly the RPGs and 3d ones like Galaxy, not SMB3DL style games), and not buy the rest.

By unique, you mean go to the far right of the level?

-thinks about it- I...guess that makes sense. I'm not really picky on which main series Mario game I play

He meant puzzles in the level design. Like the green tiles that go in different directions for a short time and you have to find in which way and order you need to take them, or the red/blue platforms which switch every time you jump, or especially the haunted mansion levels. The level design is close to a puzzle game, as it has patterns which you need to figure out and overcome. That's what sets Mario platformers apart from most other platformers which don't have that level of creativity in level design, and is what Mario is usually lauded for. Platformers like Sonic, Donkey Kong, Crash Bandicoot or Rayman don't share that proximity with puzzle games.

Anyways, yes I should pre-order it, but I don't think its going to sell out very quickly where I'm at. Maybe I'll go do that sometimes this week.

well, the first one has mini games + multiplayer modes, the wii one has 4-player co-op, racing and coin battle and the 3DS one has 2-player Co-Op and Coin Rush mode.

You might not like those multiplayer modes, but the NSMB series do have a lot of different things to do besides collecting the Star coins and secret exits.

Let me clarify. I know there are multiplayer modes in NSMB games. What I should've said was that they don't contain online play. I don't know about you, but I find it a hassle to gather people in the same room with me to play these games, so I never got to enjoy the multiplayer at all. I'd much rather play with friends online or with strangers. It's much more convenient.

While I do agree on the offline part is a big of a problem, that still doesn't the multiplayer modes less enjoyable for me when I get to play them. As chaotic as a 4 player run of NSMB Wii can be, I enjoyed every single minute of it when I played it.

I did get that game, but I didn't see the need to include it as I thought we were talking about the main mario games. I did have plenty of problems with that game though.

I kinda wish that it had a little more online though (like online co-op, sharing high scores, etc.) It's a shame, I think it's something Nintendo needs to start implementing more.

While the MP is its strongest point, it's also the weakest. Playing with two is much more fun, but needing two cartridges is just ridiculous, just like the lag of online.

Yeah, it's kind of annoying.

So I'm wondering if I should just wait until NSMB U.
I would want NSMB2, but I'd feel lonely since there would be no one to play with.

Get NSMBU everything about that game is better than NSMB2; especially level design:

The catch with that is you have to get the Wii U :P

But I don't disagree with the better style and art of NSMBU.

Yeah I guess that's true Though I would buy a Wii U just for that game alone(and more games later down the line.).It looks like the good 2D Mario since SMW imo.

Maybe, Nintendo might keep their game prices at $50, while third party publishers can choose whatever they want ( $60 most likely).

That would definitely win a few people over. I would love to get the quality of games Nintendo puts out and in HD for $50.

NSMBU definitely looks more "new" than NSMB2.

Despite all of the criticism this game is getting, i can't wait to buy it soon. My girlfriend bought my Super Mario 3D Land for my Birthday back in November and i loved it - Some people liked it, some people complained. Personally, i can't wait to play NSMB2.

Yeah, NSMBU seems to kick this game's ass. I really love these graphical improvements and SMW throwbacks!

By the way, new trailer and it's AWESOME:
New Super Mario Bros. 2 - 3DS - Video Final - YouTube

But don't watch past 2:45 OR the related videos pictures if you want the final boss spoiled! Okay off course we all know who he is, but not HOW he is. The level design surely is a lot more interesting compared to previous trailers. Also, the graphics seem to get better after each world: World 1 looks very bland, but as you continue, some things look on par with the Wii version, especially castles.

So I'm wondering if I should just wait until NSMB U.
I would want NSMB2, but I'd feel lonely since there would be no one to play with.
If you must choose AND are planning on buying a Wii U, I'd get the Wii U version. If you can both, just get both :P I still play NSMB after 6 years sometimes, these games really last. They're just fun to play. Replay, speedruns, whatever.
