Thesavepoints: It's been a while since we got a new side-scrolling Mario game. 3 years to be exact. Heck, it's even been a good 2 years since Super Mario Galaxy. So a new Mario platformer was long overdue. Surprising everyone when it was revealed at E3, people were hyped for this. Its most hyped feature was definitely the 4-player mode. But as it went on, people thought it might just be the DS game repackaged as a Wii game. But that's definitely wrong.
