I'm sure this has been mentioned in a thread already, but this deserves a new thread if you ask me. It is being built from the ground up, and it'll be released before the end of this year!

I want it right this second.

That looks glorious. Once the 3DS drops in price a couple of times and undergoes a minor revision or two, I'll probably pick one up along with this game (which most certainly will still be at full retail price by then).

Show some respect. It's a tanooki suit.

No, the tanooki suit is the one that allows you to turn into a statue too.

I can't wait for this! This is going to work so, so well in 3D. It's like a 2.5D Mario game or something, especially in this first video.

Different game - but is the Paper Mario that's coming out an all new one? Or a 3D-make?

Crap. I really have no desire to own a 3DS except for this game, which looks amazing. I hate you, Nintendo.

Surely some of you guys also picked this up today. Trust me, the 3DS has been saved by this game and now it is really starting. This game is just amazing, with perfect use of 3D. I put it at full 3D at all times with this one.

Ordered from Amazon, so unfortunately I won't be able to play until probably Tuesday, but I'm excited by all the positive word of mouth. Can't wait.

Totally agree. This game is glorious. It is the 3DS game everyone has been waiting for whether they realized it or not -- a great game in its own right, with actual real benefit to playing in 3D mode. I love everything about it so far. The variety of the levels is really impressive. The sound is great. The graphics are gorgeous. Doesn't even give me double vision while playing the way Zelda always does. Could a handheld game actually be my GOTY? Perhaps!

BTW : At Kmart, it comes with a $15 gaming coupon that's good for 6 weeks. If you were planning on picking up Skyward Sword or Mario Kart 7 any way, getting this at Kmart is an easy, easy decision.

Yeah, Nintendo REALLY knows how to use their technology, this game rocks. Super easy (at least the first time through to world 8) - but satisfying.

Beat it over the weekend... 4 stars to my name now. But there's still so much replay value that it's not a problem.

So, where does this rank among the great Mario games? I'm trying to convince myself that I don't need a 3DS just for this.

bought a 3ds just for this. played up to the first bowser's castle making sure to three coin each level before i move on. loving it. so far it's up there with all the 3d (non-sidescrolling) adventures except sunshine.

It feels like SMB3 and SMG had a love sex child and brought forth platforming perfection...

But that may just be me.

I've been a proponent of 3D and the 3DS specifically since the start, even when people were already crying that Nintendo was dead, yet again. What they have done with this game is amazing. Just forget the greatness of Mario in general, it's what they have done with the 3D that really has pushed things forward. Even I never thought the 3D could be as useful and as great as it is in this game, but here it is, just awesome.

PETA: "Tanooki may be just a "suit" in Mario games, but by wearing the skin of an animal, Mario is sending the message that it's OK to wear fur. We created our game to help inform people that in real life, Mario would be wearing the skin of an animal who was beaten, strangled or electrocuted, and it wouldn't give him any special powers other than the power of self-deception."

Wow. Just wow.

But on the other hand, if you think the PETA folks are upset with Mario, you should try talking to someone from the organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Fungi.

So they don't have much with problems with Mario stomping on turtles, but it's the animal suit that's the problem? Wow.

Have any of you guys done the 1-Up trick in world 2-1 yet? I went ahead this morning and it didn't take no time at all to reach the max of 1110. Check it out...

I also love how you can pick which type of 3D you want to play with - either with more pop out or with more depth. What an incredible feature that I didn't even know about until I started to play the game. I don't remember that being mentioned at all in any of the previews. Just one more reason this one is so great.

Liver&Onions
11-15-11, 01:44 PM
more pop out or depth? I haven't seen that option... where is it?

Touch the d-pad.

Yeah, when playing the game, press either up or down on the d-pad.

I'm at stage 5-3 and I have something like 75 lives without using any tricks. This game seems REALLY generous with the 1-Ups.

Brent L
11-15-11, 02:32 PM
Yeah, I got to about as far as you with around 75 or 90 but figured what the heck. It's Mario tradition.

You know, something these games NEVER take into account (and this game especially) is that you're essentially playing it on a screen that's attached to it's controller, so when your hands move, so does the screen - this makes the games way tougher than your standard on-TV console games, and yet they hardly ever take that into account when designing most of these game, as development mostly occurs on monitors with detached controllers.

It's World 1-2, Dyslexia-Man. But thanks, that's a cool trick. :)

Whew, after many many tries, finally passed the very final level! Wow, so many frustrations falling off the edges on that one. Plus no powerups or halfway point.

If anyone else reaches it, you'll know what I mean. Probably lost about 50 lives on that level alone...

The jump in difficulty after you beat the game is crazy. I 3-coined all the normal levels pretty easily and ended the game with 160+ lives. Then I started in on the bonus levels. I've 3-coined all of them in world 1 and about half in worlds 2 & 3. And my lives have now dropped under 100.

Just finished the main portion (i.e. the 8 worlds) of this. Took me about 8 hours. Really enjoyed it. The 3d looks fantastic. I did find that aiming the cannons by moving the 3ds caused my eye line for the 3d to mess up so I avoided that and just tried to use the pad. I didn't get three stars for all the levels first time so now I'm going back to get the ones I missed.
