    Man, I can't wait for Super Mario Bros. 2 or The Legend of Zelda 2. I mean, the first games were such epic creations, their sequels can ONLY be...well, epic+1, right? [​IMG]

    I'm glad Nintendo took note about how their E3 Show sucked.

    And (all types of) SMB2 with it. ;P

    I don't see why Iwata had to apologize, I mean...Nintendo didn't really do anything wrong, just that rabid fanboys hyped the utter shit out of the E3 showing and when they didn't get what they wanted, they demanded blood. Say what you will about catering to the fans, but look at what Sega has done with Sonic as a result of trying to please the fans. =\

    He never needed to apologize.

    Madworld, and Animal Crossing did it for me.
    ...and there is a shit load of awesome games coming for the Wii.

    Well, there's two types of SMB2 depending on where you live. If you're Japanese, you'd know Super Mario Bros. 2 as the one that was basically an expansion of sorts to the original game. Harder levels (no mid-level savepoint!), Poison Mushrooms, etc. This game was released with Super Mario All-Stars on the SNES as Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels. And it was partially snuck into Super Mario Bros. Deluxe on the GBC (don't remember what exactly was added/removed for that one however, if anything).

    If you are an American, Super Mario Bros. 2 involves a great leap away from the common Mario gameplay. You can pull up plants and enemies to attack, and there were four playable characters with their own stats. This was originally released as Doki Doki Panic! in Japan (though it was an unrelated game to Mario as a whole) and is known as Super Mario USA for the specific SMB2 version.

    Now. Legend of Zelda II The Adventure of Link is also a big departure from the standard Zelda play in the last game. Now you have an overworld map, and you can run into random encounters, which then shift the game into a sidescrolling-view sub-platformer-cross-RPG. You can move and jump and attack enemies with your sword, and when you clear the area of enemies, you get experience and the usual RPG spoils. It's sorta the black sheep of Zelda games for these reasons, though it's not really that bad of a game if you have an open mind, and is fairly hard (you start with the sword beam, but it only works at full health and that's hard to maintain).

    Whew. Professor DF out.

    Yes. The original Super Mario Bros. 2 didn't get a US release until 2007, slightly over 21 years after its Japanese debut.

    the original SMB2 was also later released in Super Mario All-Stars as The Lost Levels.

    I meant the non-remade version. Original graphics and sound.

    Reggie said, that Nintendo won`t announce or show trailer to anything, that will not came this year, besides WiiSportsResort...

    So fact is, that this year, there is nothing special coming from Nintendo or 3rd Party on Wii. I`m not talking about games I play, because I`m Pirate!

    I have a suggestion: why not developing new IPs Nintendo (or IP left behind for some unknown reason: Metroid Dread, anyone?)...

    Everybody knows, that Nintendo is eventually always working on Mario and Zelda. That`s nothing worth mentioning if they don`t show a trailer IMO.

    Yeah, both Reggie and Iwata said that they won't be announcing stuff one year before it comes out.. not a bad politic actually, I remember waiting more than 3 years for Twilight Princess [​IMG]

    Anyway, that means that Nintendo's line-up for this year won't have any changes.. WiiMusic, Animal Crossing and that's it!
    BUT.. that doesn't mean we can't have new 3rd Party announcements..
