Such a fun game. Only complaint is that it was too short. I beat it in 24 hours (collecting everything).

Ha! That's so that they can release NSMB Wii in a couple of years time...

Braineater24483043d ago

The game is 2D. Do you really think it takes years to develop? It's competing against MW2, UC2, etc.

Smacktard3043d ago

Uh... 24 hours is pretty good for a platformer. And then you can play multiplayer too, so...

Darkfocus3042d ago (Edited 3042d ago )

24 hours is long for almost anything only RPGs and a select few other games top 30 hours

If I could have it back for one game, this would be it. Not that I have a shortage of games to play but this still looks like a tonne of fun.

yippiechicken3042d ago

you're going to love it! It's awesome!

LeonSKennedy4Life3042d ago

It's great!

Also...I'd be FAR more excited if we could get a decent Donkey Kong game.

Donkey Kong Country 2 is still one of my favorite games. It was Rare's masterpiece, in my opinion.

FrankWest3043d ago

Those are some great sales, Nintendo has yet another winner it seems

Blaster_Master3043d ago

Agreed. I would have bought it too if I didn't sell my two wii's 2 years back. E3 07 looked bleak and got rid of them, damn I was wrong. Looks like I gotta go get another one. LOL!

Smacktard3042d ago

That's why you shouldn't sell your console. What's the point?

Yoshiii3043d ago

this game i am having fun with. game should get more sales then this.

LeonSKennedy4Life3043d ago

I was surprised how much fun it was.

I didn't like the DS version...kinda boring. : (

I'm really enjoying this. Sorry for having doubted you, Nintendo.

I just wish Sony would absorb them complete creative control and unlimited funds. Both companies would have a gold-mine on their hands.

Keep non-dimensional Nintendo away from Sony.

LeonSKennedy4Life3042d ago

Miyamoto is a genius though!

Sony would be more than happy to have him on...

ReBurn3042d ago

Considering the money that the Wii has been printing for Nintendo over the last 3 years I don't think that they need Sony at all. Nintendo needs to stay focused on just what they are doing, not become another tentacle off of a huge electronics conglomerate.

LeonSKennedy4Life3042d ago

...but if Nintendo makes a single's all over. Another Gamecube and the company goes under.

I'm pretty sure Sony will grab more of the portable market next time also.

"keep one-dimensional Nintendo away from Sony"

why? isnt that how the playstation was born....thru nintendo and sony. Heck even the square, triangle, circle, and X was in super mario world whenever a spell was casted.

asdr3wsfas3042d ago


Gamecube sold for a profit per console. Nintendo actually did very well (if not the best) profitwise last gen. Certainly beat xbox and IIRC PS2 also, both of which use loss leader sales.
