New Super Mario Bros. Needs a ‘Classic’ Hardcore Difficulty Mode

GenGAME writes: "A lot of people rightly complain that the New Super Mario Bros. games are too easy. Objectively speaking they do cut back significantly on a lot of the things that made the classic game so notoriously tough, adding more coins and extra lives, more chances to save the game, and the ability to replay levels in order to mine them for 1ups and power-ups. Older games didn’t have these luxuries – getting a Game Over sent you back to start and you only had one shot at each level, meaning that every move you made had to really count."

The story is too old to be commented.

New super Mario is actually old super Mario. It needs a complete overall IMO. Others can have their opinions but this game is basically a super Nintendo game. It's time to upgrade this ip

Mario is still as fun as always but I would like to see a hard mode (no it doesn't need a hard mode, I just think it would be a plus).

I wish it was.

Hell if they go back to the feel of SMB3 then they can make tons of em.

Odd I do not remember a hard difficulty in the classic super mario bros.

It does not "need" any such mode at all.

Remember that block that appears if you get neutralized, frequently?

Just add that, and it won't be such a bad idea.

old super mario was cute but deadly, and thats what made it so addictive!
It was the same with the original tomb raider as you knew one mistake would mean big trouble and thats what made it a classic!

i got this feeling in the second quest of super mario 3d land. You want a hardcore super mario challenge beat every level in both quests and get every coin in every level. Possibly the hardest challenge in any mario game.
