Why is this news? Everyone loves it. It's an incredible game.

I'd love to play it, and I'm sure one day I will, but I can't justify the purchase of a WiiU just yet. The system is still quite expensive here in Holland (250-300 EURO), plus the must-have exclusives also pretty much remain around 45-50 euro.

Kinda hoping for some nice announcements from E3 regarding the WiiU and new games.

New Super Mario Bros U is superb, and the best in the "New" series.

Going to have to disagree I've never been let down by a Mario ever till this. The levels were boring the music stunk and it was entirely too easy.

How is it that you weren't let down by New Super Mario/Luigi U? All the Wii U Mario games have been pretty MEH, not terrible but just meh

Wow I just lost a ton of respect for Schafer. This something he should have kept to himself. The Mario series had become so stale and unfun . Basically unless you're ten years old , you shouldn't be playing it.

By your comment you haven't played a Mario game since you were ten. There always fun, challenging and just plain simple for everyone. I've only heard ten year olds think that games rated E are for kids only...

Sad to see how unhappy people can be in life, to hate a great video game.

So you also have no respect for every single website or magazine that reviews games?

What a joke. Stale and unfun? Sounds like ur talking about shooter a b or c. People like you who spread this sort of nonsense are the reason the gaming industry will go thru another collapse.

We'd all lose respect for you after that comment, but you'd have to have some to lose first.
