    I'm hoping that, judging by your awesome keyboarding skills, this is in jest. If not (again, something that I seriously doubt), I think anyone claiming that all a company does is release the same thing year after year while having a picture of Steve Jobs holding an iProduct as their tag pic is a bit hypocritical. Just sayin

    Wait, real games on iphone?
  • J-Fid - April 21, 2012 11:47 a.m.

    I'm all for the Golden Koopas! Hopefully, this won't be as painful to play as the Wii version.

    Also, the 4th pics bugging me, not from Gold Mario, but the ground itself under the blocks, i cant tell if thats the ground's design, or if its outer border which will confirm the tricky 3D concept much like 3D land.

    Eh... Disappointing. The first NSMB was alright, but nothing truly spectacular. And nothing in those pictures give me any reason to believe this game will be any different. And this is further disappointing in the sense that with people expecting a proper SMB 4, the hope was that they would return to 2d sprites or hand drawn. There's not much to be excited about this 3D polygon stuff.
  • shawksta - April 21, 2012 11:33 a.m.

    Your kinda right on that stuff, way too many questions though, its possible this isnt even SMB4. The whole NSMB concept is to bring the Side Scroller to Modern times and movement, it feels different on itself because its modern otherwise the old 2D sprites one have different mechanics when you compare the 2.
  • BladedFalcon - April 21, 2012 1:27 p.m.

    Yes, but the thing is, to me, the 3D look doesn't really make the game "Better" in any way. And again, while NSMB was a enjoyable game, I think we can agree it never did anything particularly new, special or amazing. Something that's supposed to go hand in hand with Core Mario games.
  • shawksta - April 21, 2012 1:53 p.m.

    I never said it did make it better, it just made it more modern, much like Sonic 4 but NSMB came first, if anything i hope NSMB2 fixes the physics like Sonic 4 ep2 will. Yeah,It didnt do anything special, just making the Side Scroller with 3D models and the major noteworthy is introducing the Koopa Suit,Mini Mushroom(i think) and the Mega Shroom. While the Wii Version had better Level design, brang back the Koopalings (though the repeating style bugged me) and introduced Propeller hats, Penguin Suits and notably Yoshi into the mechanic that couldve been better. I think those items are what makes it stand out but otherwise your right. However, despite the change of style between Mario 2 and Mario 3, the items played a big role on why the game is so beloved. Super Mario World, it was definitly the style and mechanics. I personally dont view The NSMB series as the majorly core games, just the 3D platformers and the recent 3D Land. As i said though, its almost impossible to name THIS "Super Mario 4", because it will cause allot of controversy over the older games, but lets see how everything plays out. Especially since we havnt seen any Movement gameplay yet from this game.

    Can't we definitively say this is not Super Mario 4? I mean, it's right there. It says New Super Mario Bros 2. NSMB2=/=SM4. And there's no way the tech demo for the WiiU was SM4. I think we could have 3 2D marios in the works, tho SM4 is likely a ways off
  • Redeater - April 21, 2012 2:31 p.m.

    I really, really dislike the polygons. SMB3 had the fantastic "stage" setup and SMBW had eye popping colour and was delightfully cartoony. This?.......meh.
  • shawksta - April 21, 2012 10:50 a.m.

    Yeah, that was hugely unexpected when watching Nintendo Direct, it looks cool but it really puzzles me on a couple of things. -New Super Mario Bros 2? Odd, does that mean this follows only New Super Mario Bros. DS? What does that make the Wii Version? -Is this what is supposed to be "Super Mario 4" If it is, that just gives us major questions as to how the gameplay will be and even bigger question as what the Wii U mario game will be. -The third Picture, you can see the Piranha plants and Koopa's are shiny Gold, and in the fourth Mario himself is gold, could this be the "New" Starman? All these questions revolve around it, especially with it coming out in AUGUST, This isnt anything usual, Nintendo has something up their sleeves, just adding to the unexpectedness of E3 so god knows what those dastardly devils are up to. On another note, F*CK YEAH, RACOON ^_^, NOW WHERES THE CAPE!?!?!?? :P
  • Corn - April 21, 2012 11:28 a.m.

    Probably not Super Mario 4, considering its a (New) Super Mario Bros. game, and it has a 2 in its name instead of 4. 4 would probably be 3D, like the other Super Mario games.
  • shawksta - April 21, 2012 11:35 a.m.

    If thats the case Super Mario 64 wouldve been Super Mario 4 so that makes no sense, the first New Super Mario Bros. wouldve been 4 so your probably right.
  • LordHyper - April 21, 2012 4:16 p.m.

    Are you trying to put chronology in the Mario series?
  • shawksta - April 21, 2012 5:10 p.m.

    Nothing Canon-wise but the games themselves in order. Because got knows Nintendo likes to mess with us in terms of story order.
  • Fuzunga - April 21, 2012 11:50 p.m.

    Super Mario 4 ≠ Super Mario BROS 4. Curiously, if Nintendo was to make another 3D Mario game, it would be the 4th one on consoles (not counting SMG2 which is a direct sequel). Plus, they leave off the Bros part for Mario's 3D outings.
  • shawksta - April 22, 2012 5:58 p.m.

    Yes, but if you recall, Super Mario World is called Super Mario 4 in japan.
