Why a bunch of Mario ports may be all Nintendo needs to face off against the new consoles.
To be honest we don't even know if Sony/MS will be able to deliver their new consoles this holiday season. It might be all for Nintendo's taking at this point if things don't change. I just hope the rumours about this collection are true. If we can get Mario 64, Sunshine, Galaxy 1 + 2 and 3D World in one set, that would blow the roof off and be an absolute must have package for any Switch owner.
If they're 60 dollars and below for the collection that would be a definite buy, otherwise i'll have to weigh the pros and cons and maybe think about just buying more ps4/ps5 games
well Nintendo never charges more than the full price of one game for their collections in the past, so don't see why they wouldn't. Even at full price this collection would be a steal.
I have all those mario games already. I don't have a ps5 or sx so my $$ is on them.
No one have them remaked
Who said they are remakes? Sounds like remasters.
@Segata - that's fine with me. 1080p / 60fps versions of all those games? Sign me up.
I don't see Nintendo consoles and Sony/Microsoft consoles going after the same market. Switch seems to be universal appeal to people who want portability. Sony/Microsoft are for Home TV market only. I don't see Switch sales slowing and I don't see Sony/Microsoft having problems selling their consoles.
Agree. Been wanting these
Lol, some old games can counter 2 new powerhouse consoles, that's what switch owners are telling themselves now, the delsuion is real.
This article does not represent the opinion of every Switch owners, fyi. And those “old games” will sell millions of copies, and that is what matter.
yet somehow 3 year old Mario Kart 8 is outselling newer titles on a week-by-week basis. I think it is you that is somehow delusional.
All these ports and still no Wii Sports 2 for the Switch.
Wii brand is dead. Why don't you ask for another game with 64 in the title or DS.
Wtf you talking about.
The galaxy games are sublime. I’d love to play them in HD with no mandatory motion controls.
Tried HD pack in Dolphin emulator and wow what a difference. Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 are gems. I loved Odyssey but ... Mario Galaxy holds a special place. I hope they release them on Switch!
nothing's gonna stop the hype train of next gen, or distract from it not even Mario. However I am excited for this collection. I hope it's the DS version of 64, and both Galaxy games. I hope it's a collection cause there's no way I'm buying these games individually at full price or in a 120$ double pack.
Lol yea ok, bwahahahahahahahaha!!!!
So remasters of old games is going to counter brand new next gen consoles launching? Nope this is a terrible take. Won’t be able to find a next gen console on a shelf come Christmas time.
yeah, because they probably won't even be able to release. Where do you think all this stuff is being manufactured?
no its not. i am highly confident the people like myself eagerly waiting for the gen 9 ms/sony consoles are not going to consider trading off for a super mario christmas... two entirely different things at entirely different levels.
if you owned a Switch you might.
Considering new systems hardly have any games for several months, I don’t see that as an issue. Also, Nintendo pulls out the guns from November onwards and it doesn’t have to be Mario
I want a Mario 64 remake with current gen graphics.
A collection of classic 3D Mario titles? Heck yeah!
if, if, if sometimes nintendo makes some of their super mario galaxy/odyssey, mario kart, zelda game on PC/PS/Xbox, I will instantly buy it.
Fanboy / Fangirl bait =)
Don't get me wrong, I'd love to for this collection to be true but I'm not sure how a collection of remastered old Mario games is the "answer" to brand new next generation consoles.
