    Strangely, there are zero new games with Mario as a playable character scheduled between now and the end of 2008. Not counting ports/remakes/etc.

    Mario Super Sluggers doesn't count as it's already out in Japan.

    If a title like the current Wii version of Warioland would appear I would be totally satisfied. I guess they could either take the 8bit/16bit approach, that would be awesome. But if they did it more in the same cartoony Wario style I wouldn't mind.

    It's a funny thing but I guess most Nintendo fans would rather have a mario platformer in the old fashioned 8bit or 16bit style than a full 3d adventure game like Super Mario Galaxy.

    Yeah. I mean, they can't even find time for one of their 3rd or 4th tier teams to hack away at a Mario spinoff?

    Imagine Super Mario World style except quadruple the size.

    I miss old skool Mario (SMB3/SMW)

    NSMB was OK, but didn't capture the speed element of older Mario games. Give me the Cape or Racoon any day.

    '"Making these 'traditional' games is what I am best at," Miyamoto told The Telegraph. "Because games of that nature take upwards of two or three years to make, we always have to keep the teams working on those projects going. '

    Clearly the article indicates a longer timeframe has been given for this game, one that would indicate a 3d mario platformer more than anything.

    Traditional is the keyword.
