Super Mario Galaxy 3 News: Turns Out Nintendo Isn’t Working On New Galaxy

We’ve known for a long time that Nintendo is working on a new 3D Super Mario game, from the same team that brought us Super Mario 3D Land, 3D World, and Super Mario Galaxy 2. For a long time, certain exuberant members of the press have assumed that the game in development will be Super Mario Galaxy 3 (which members of the press? Well, mostly me). Alas, Nintendo has just thrown cold water on that theory, thanks to a new interview with Eurogamer.

I would love to see another stab at the Sunshine franchise personally.

You're not the only one.
No more disintegrating lilipads floating over instant death water with red coins you've gotta grab.

Like, never.
Never ever.
Never ever f***ing again.XD

I found this article:


I'm surprised that Miyamoto said 'Super Mario Sunshine is an authentic sequel to Super Mario 64'.

To my knowledge, Miyamoto had much more direct involvement on The Wind Waker and was overseeing the creation of Sunshine.

I felt that Miyamoto was preparing to use some of what was learnt from Sunshine in to his planned Galaxy series and I thought that he regarded that as the first true sequel to Mario 64.

I haven't played Galaxy and I know that some people say that its levels are less open than Sunshine's and they prefer Sunshine.

I understand that point of view however I've always felt that Sunshine was like a summer holiday that you once loved but if you go back to it, you find that nothing feels fresh. The levels are like unfinished playgrounds to me.

What saves the game as a major Mario game is merely the hub world with its soundtrack, beautiful water effects, birds flying off roof tops and potential to use all your FLUDD uses to the full just messing around. I also liked Noki Bay and felt that it demonstrated a direction that the game would have been better off using more often. A hub world should not be just about the best feature of a game!

Good I hope Nintendo makes a new type of 3D Mario game instead of retreading old ground

From the article;

"Whatever Nintendo is whipping up now will be awesome."

marloc_x1134d ago (Edited 1134d ago )

The author's conclusion is speculative.. is their suggestion that whatever Nintendo is whipping up now will be awesome.

Neonridr1134d ago

do you disagree with said statement?

marloc_x1133d ago


I can only speculate 😉

I belive because the Wii U is dead and they must be prepeng to Release it on the Next console.

Its a shame the Wii U does no Play the GameCube disks.

wonderfulmonkeyman1134d ago

No, it's because they've already had Mario 3D World, NSMBU/LU, and now Mario Maker is about to release.

They've repeatedly stated that they'll continue delivering games for the Wii U, even after the NX's release, and that's not until 2017, which means at least another year full of games before their attention becomes divided at all.

BrandanT1134d ago

Just saying: How long was the Wii and DS supported after the Wii U and 3DS came out?

wonderfulmonkeyman1133d ago (Edited 1133d ago )

@ Brandan
Just saying, at what point during the run up to those two consoles, did Nintendo go out of their way to specifically state their refusal to abandon the previous gen, let alone announce either of the consoles well in advance of their originally intended time?

This is the first time Nintendo's done this, and there's enough evidence in other interviews where they've talked a bit about the NX, to come to the conclusion that the Wii U isn't being abandoned early, if at all.
They've even gone out of their way to include it in their forthcoming plans for the Club Nintendo replacement, which will include an account system expanding throughout all of their systems, and they've said before now that the NX won't be a simple replacement for the Wii U, as well.

All evidence, little though it might be, points towards this being a precedent waiting to be set.
If Nintendo says they're not abandoning the Wii U, there's enough evidence to argue that they aren't lying.

Though I will agree with Imortus on one point: It's a shame the Wii U doesn't play Gamecube disks.
But it's still got native BC with the most recent gen, and that's enough for me.

I just hope they do it right. Mario64 is "the" mario game and others were great but the reason they never lived up to it was the lack of exploration. N64 you were able to traverse the castle and that made the experience like no othee. If they wanna bring mario back they gotta make it explorable. Turn it up a notch, not just the castle but literally a world. Similar to the old platformers like Dk64 and banjo kazooie, big world with hub levels with in. But I can bet this is what there doing. Same as zelda
