He does. Oh my, how he does.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii seems to do everything right. It's a love letter to the NES and SNES originals, but rather than relying on pure nostalgia, the series continues to be challenging and innovative. New items like the Ice Flower, Penguin Suit, and Propeller Suit actually have purpose, and prove more useful and fun in various situations. They are much more enjoyable than the Mega Mushroom in the original New Super Mario Bros."
