    Just think of it once more. "Super Mario brothers". Didn't that ring a bell before? :P

    Did anyone actually watch the video? The entire interview comprises of the interviewer, Miyamoto, and Aonuma joking around.

    Mario's last name isn't Mario.

    Wouldn't it make more sense if when naming link, you are actually choosing his last name?

    Goddammit Miyamoto... At least try to be creative sometime this decade.

    I doubt it. We already have Mario Mario, and I don't see why anyone would be surprised by Link not being human. I mean, he has pointy, elf-like ears - something humans don't have. The Hylians are considered a race, and at least in some continuities, it's implied Link is one of them or at least somehow related.

    Oh Miyamoto. That's why we all love you. Such creative imagination. The scenery, the story... But most of all... The names. Link Link, Mario Mario... Hey, we can't leave out Like Like. ;)

    I was so afraid it was going to be the same deal with Mario and was hoping for otherwise.

    yes but, more kids are into the 3d graphics of the 6th gen and 7th gen games... if there were to be a new 2d pokemon game, it would have to be a spinoff like XD or coliseum

    I think they were just goofing around. They didn't seem to take it too seriously, even if the fandom was anticipating it. I think they don't care nearly as much as some fans might.

    It's a great interview btw, you should go watch it if you haven't already.

    The Pokemon series has always been pushing the limits of their handheld hardware. They've slowly been transitioning to 3D, going from 2D to 2.5D (sprites w/ 3D models), and then going full-blown 3D with the 3DS titles. Usually Pokemon games are some of the most best-looking games on their handheld systems, so I wouldn't expect them to go back to sprites anytime soon. The games are also way more dynamic with 3D models, and they can do more such as incorporate interesting camera angles. Also, as someone mentioned earlier, kids nowadays are accustomed to 3D graphics.

    I think it'd be wicked cool if they did something like what Square Enix is doing with DragonQuest 11 on the 3DS where you can play the game in regular 3D but also play it in 2D if you like. Like this:

    You have your 3D view on top and a matching 2D view on the bottom.

    You do realize I'm not trolling. Miyamoto said in an interview that Mario has no last name as his name is just Mario, like Drake or Jem. He was telling the truth when it was exactly like Mario as Link's name is just Link.

    You do realize everything that isn't the games, such as that horrible movie and the 90's cartoons are strictly noncanon.
