NO. THIS IS NOT RELATED TO NEW SUPER MARIO BROS. 2. Observe: Well, basically, I got bored, and decided to make a random mario-based platformer.. for fun. The picture you see above is actually an in-game screenshot, and it basically shows what I've done so far. New Super Mario RPG is basically your ordinary platformer, except for the fact that it has an RPG aspect to it. Basically, you can go around, talk to people, buy stuff, etc, in addition to playing normal levels. From the start, you will be able to choose what character you want to be; will you be Mario? Luigi? Peach? a Goomba? Paper Mario? Bowser? Whatever path you choose will affect the overall ending. Well, that basically sums it up, I guess. A demo won't be released for quite a while, but I've got the whole holidays ahead of me (about 7 1/2 weeks, minus 4 weeks for actual 'holidaying') so I hopefully should have a playable version released by the end of the year.
