If I get the Wii U, It'll be for all the mario games and Zelda. I grew up on SMB3, so it has a special little hovel in my heart. Also, If they execute online play well with this game then I feel like I could be playing this for a long time to come.

I grew up on Mario as well and loved 'em but since Nintendo is going for innovation and not a graphical leap then shouldn't the first Mario game be innovative?

This is just a play on nostalgia and not innovation. The WiiU needs an equivalent to the innovation that Mario 64 brough to the industry - not another Mario that relies on 27 year old gameplay mechanics.

Well, they're just getting their feet wit with the launch titles. Releasing what is safe, and just learning what the tech is capable of. I too grew up on Atari 2600 and NES, and this Mario game along with Zombie U will be the games I buy along side the Wii U day 1. If Mario U brings solid level design which the series is known for, I think it will be a great safe game for them. I expect Nintendo to be more innovative with titles like NintendoLand and others... Actually I'd prefer them to be innovative with titles like that and keep Mario, Metroid and Zelda based on the franchise's roots. I don't mind a little innovation, but forcing innovation in the Wii versions of Zelda and Metroid really turned me off.

Yeh I do agree it shouldn't be forced for the same reasons you mention, specifically the forced wii-trols with Zelda and other games.

I also agree that Nintendo is playing it safe which is really my biggest problem right now with it even though I still plan to buy the wiiU at launch. I just want something different ya know because I'm not counting on the tablet alone to lead to any major game-changing ideas.

This looks like a true sequel to New SMB Wii. Not just a quick rehash like people thought. I wish they would have called it New Super Mario World U instead, but this works.

A true sequel to NSMB Wii, yes. Calling it New Super Mario World U, just no! SMW was epic. To have a sequel for it, it would take much more than NSMB U to get it right.

I see where he's coming from though. Have you seen the world map? It's way more like Super Mario World.

Well it does look like a potential SSB stage, with all the platforms hanging and all.
