    Story:
    There is a Tanooki-tailed tree outside of Princess Peach's Castle, with Tanooki leaves on its branches that all of the Mushroom Kingdom is familiar with, but one night, a huge storm blows all of the Tanooki leaves off. The next morning, Princess Peach goes outside to see if the tree is okay, but during her inspection, Bowser once again kidnaps her.
    Later on, Mario and three Toads (Red, Yellow, and Blue) go looking for the princess. Eventually, they discover that she is missing and the Tanooki leaves are gone too. Yellow Toad notices a hovering letter near the tree, which the group of four go to. Mario grabs and opens it, and a picture of Bowser holding Princess Peach with Tanooki leaves flying in the background pops out. The message shocks the three Toads and Mario, and immediately, Mario and the three Toads run to save Princess Peach
    Locations :
    World 1-2: An underground area, which features a Super Mario Bros. World 1-2 Warp Zone-like area. The stage's music is the Super Mario Galaxy remix of the Super Mario Bros. underground theme.
    World 2-1: A plain with many stones and grass. This level features a new overworld theme also heard in the trailer for the game and has similarities with the Super Mario Bros. 3 and New Super Mario Bros overworld themes.
    World 2-5: A level with many airships. At the end, Boom Boom is battled. The stage's music is the Super Mario Galaxy remix of the Super Mario Bros. 3 airship theme, and the Boom Boom battle music is Peewee Piranha's theme from Super Mario Galaxy 2.
    World 3-3: A place in the sky with green panels that generate temporary green platforms to navigate through the level. The stage's music is the Super Mario Galaxy remix of the Super Mario Bros. 3 athletic theme, and the music of the bonus area included in the stage is the Super Mario Galaxy 2 Teleporter bonus area theme.
    An airship level with Bob-ombs and Spike Pillars.
    A sky level with rotating blocks and a white floating wall.
    A place with many platforms and blocks. Elevators, blue blocks with white arrows on them, and Donut Lifts appear here.

    i wasn't impressed by it at e3 but, i watched the trailer in the eshop and the 3d made up for it. It looks kind of cartoony though - like cell shaded or something.

    I'm definitely going to buy this. It's a new mario which shares a great resemblance to the 2D titles and those never let me down.

    I also like how everyone voted 'HECK YEAH! IT'S MARIO!' so far. [​IMG]

    I'm so getting this game as soon as I can.


    I hope they don't fall short on powerups like they did in NSMB DS

    I wasn't impressed by the E3 trailer, but I loved the gameplay trailer above! Definitely getting this now. It looks like it'll be pretty feature packed judging from the screen shots!

    Game looks awesome. I can't wait.

    Ha ha, heard Temple of Time music in the background of the gameplay video [​IMG]
     
  7. That looks awesome.
    After seeing the gameplay video, my opinion of the game totally changed.
    It seems that certain levels have a open-world-ish design while others seem like linear levels.

    The game seems like a cross between Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Super Mario 64. I'm definitely getting this.

    Can you still fly in the tanooki suit or is it just for "floating" and the tail attack?

    I really like Mario in that tanooki suit [​IMG]

    It's a must buy! The game looks awesome

    But I find the game looking a little similar to new super mario bros...
    I thought it was going to be more similar to super mario 64 [​IMG]

    Getting this one when I have a chance. The gameplay looks good. I have been waiting for a new handheld Mario for a while.

    It's Just for Floating and the tail attack, they said that flying on the small screen wouldn't work well

    It's like they're finally acknowledging that the powerups in Super Mario Bros 3 are the ones we want to use most. Seeing the Raccoon leaf and Tanooki Suit again, along with the musical note blocks, were welcome sights in the trailers.

    But how well it will play is what will matter most. We do not need another "Sonic 4", which while looking fantastic, never felt right controls-wise.

    The game's definitely received a lot of nostalgia over the throwbacks to classic power-ups and level designs. I'm hyped for it despite people complaining about the game's flow, camera, and controls.

    It's a must buy for me. Not only do I love Mario games, I have every bit of confidence this will be a AAA quality game. Plus I'm excited to see a new game built from the ground up to take advantage of the 3DS's capabilities.

    Killer app, that is all. Convinced me that my $250 investment in the 3DS is more than worth it (prior to I thought it was just worth it).

    The camera angle in the video is horrid. 2d/Side scrolling Mario is way better IMO.

    I think this warrants an explanation. Especially since the camera angle seems to be the least intrusive and annoying a camera has ever been in a 3D Mario game. The game is being developed with pure platforming in mind, this type of angle seems to perfectly suit it. It never gets stuck behind walls, never changes abruptly (throwing off the controls), and you can actually change it anyways (there are buttons on the touch screen for the camera, and someone mentioned to me on another site that the dpad controls the camera).
