    Nah, just kidding [​IMG]

    But seriously, who wants this? We had SMB on the GBC with Super Mario Bros. DX, and all the subsequent 2-D platformers in the Super Mario Advance line on the GBA. Super Mario 64 got ported to the DS, so the next logical title to be given the portable treatment is Sunshine. I know people had mixed opinions of this game back when it first came out, and some felt we were "cheated" out of a true sequel to Mario 64... though personally, I really enjoyed Sunshine. It ironed out the visual and control quirks that I didn't care for in SM64 and was a pretty solid, enjoyable experience for me.

    So what are your thoughts on this as a potential 3DS game?

    They ought to. This would be Ninty's chance to fix everyone's complaints with the Gamecube version. We could finally see Sunshine as fine-tuned and polished as Galaxy is!


    In my opinion, the only thing that broke Super Mario 64 DS was the lack of an analog stick. And since that won't be a problem for the 3DS, there is potential for awesomeness.

    I loved Sunshine. I would definitely buy this game at launch. Sheesh, I'm gonna have like, 5 games to buy on launch day already! [​IMG]

    Of course, that's assuming most of the games announced make it on launch day.

    I thought Sunshine was the weakest Super Mario game (meaning of the Super Mario 64 series). Just thought the whole water pack mechanics sucked. It was a decent enough game but nothing I'd go giddy over.

    I'd be much more happy with a Super Mario Galaxy 3DS game.

    Too soon; unless you mean an entirely original Galaxy-inspired game.

    But still, I wouldn't be too happy if they just skipped over a major title. The point is having all the Mario platformers to play on a portable system.

    I think they should. It was nothing 'great' but it definitely wasn't bad.

    Not really fussed about it being a launch title; i've got Zelda OOT and Kid Icarus for that. [​IMG]

    I was thinking an original title, as you said it'd be too soon for a port. Although seeing Mario fly out of the screen when he does a high jump would be amazing to see in Galaxy 1 or 2.

    I mean, it'd make sense to put Sunshine on there I guess. I could live with both.

    See that little thing to the left of the touch screen? They call that an analog stick, and the lack of it is why Mario 64 DS sucked, the only reason it did. It was pretty much superior in every way except for the lack of analog. And we've now got one, so that's not a valid point. >_>

    I'd rather have an all new original Mario 3D game. It would be unusual for them to do it on a handheld, but hey, there were some great exclusive Mario platformers on the Gameboy series, like Mario Land.

    You didn't need to use them in Mario 64 DS, and you won't have to use it there. Why the hell add an analog stick if they force you NOT to use? You can play through the ENTIRE game of Mario 64 DS without using the touchscreen at all. [​IMG]

    Well I needed the touchscreen to spin Bowser, I just could not do it on a d-pad. They also made the game a tad too easy (the clock level's a great example of this) but other than that it was an incredible remake.

    As for Sunshine 3DS, I'd love to see it. The water thing was kinda weird, but I liked it, especially the Turbo Nozzle or whatever it was called (sped you along). The puzzle levels where they took the water pack out were also just great, really challenging and rewarding to beat. If they added a few new Shines and a blue coin list, it'd be perfect.

    I had no issues spinning Bowser with the dpad, i found it easier than the touch screen actually.

    Funny to say, but i think there's a possibility 3DS devs will sometimes not use the touchscreen as much, at least for touch controls. It's great for minimaps or extended HUD's. But for a main game display, i think they won't use it nearly as much as they did for the DS.

    No. Wait until they release a console that won't play it natively. I mean, I can find it for $5 bucks on amazon, or I can pay $35+ more so that I can play it in 3D?

    i'd like to see it happen....

    but i wonder if you'll beable to play 'Mario 64 DS' on the 3DS with the new thumb stick? I might actually play it then. I really tried but couldn't get into it with the d-pad or touchscreen....

    Nintendo might be thinking about this, as they had Super Mario 64 ported to the DS. Definitely want it if it happens though.
