One game which we are looking forward to seeing at E3 2011 is the New Super Mario Bros for the Nintendo 3DS, recently IGN posted a nice article where they spoke about Super Mario 3DS expectations and wishes etc.
IGN point out that Shigeru Miyamoto has pretty much confirmed that the Raccoon Tail Suit will make an appearance in Super Mario 3DS, if this suit makes an appearance chances are that other classic suits will show up, along with some more recent ones. Perhaps we will see the Cloud Suit and Penguin Suit show up, if so we can expect the game’s levels to be designed around the abilities these suits give you, also we could see some completely new suits show up.
The game’s difficulty is what many think will be the game’s most important feature, let’s face it, the scope of people who will play the game makes it hard to get spot on, will it be as easy as Super Mario Bros on the DS, or will it be a bit more difficult like the two Super Mario Galaxy releases?
Nintendo has previously stated that Super Mario 3DS will be a similar game to Super Mario 64, perhaps this means that there will be a central hub set in the Mushroom Kingdom. You can find out more about Super Mario Bros 3DS expectations over at IGN, now we will talk about some of the ideas on IGN’s wishlist.
IGN hope that this game will really show off the 3DS’ 3D capabilities and add real depth to such an iconic game series, they want to see plenty of classic costumes return with a 3D makeover and bottomless caverns to really look bottomless. Also for lasting appeal they want the game to be tough so you really have to work hard to get all of the stars.
One thing to remember is the fact that all 3DS games will be playable in 2D, we are hoping that this doesn’t hold the game back too much, let’s face it if you bought the 3DS you want to see its 3D capabilities on show, we have been playing 2D Mario games since 1980, surely it is time for a change?
We can’t wait to see Super Mario 3DS at E3 2011, can you? If not, what expectations do you have?
