Forums - Nintendo Discussion - they could have atleast added more with 25th anniversary of mario game

i just reckon they could have done more with the Allstar game thats all. its just a port of the snes classic, the Optical disk or Dual Layer has more space then cartridges that they could have atleast Remastered Mario All stars and added more old Mario games like "Mario World" or even added the Mario game i never played in my life "Mario Sunshine".. maybe it will happen for its 30th Anniversary?

Good for you , it was horrible

Ontopic:

because nintendo's motto is "Less means More" they're never into the "ADD MORE CONTENT!!" if it works don't fix it.



To be honest, it's the 25th Anniversary booklet and soundtrack that really interest me... the game(s) is just a bonus.

But, as a Genesis/Master System owner back then, I never got the chance to have SM All-Stars, so I'm looking forward to playing some of the updated classics.



There are two likely explanations.

1. Nintendo would have put more into it if they knew how high the demand would be.

2. Malstrom is right, and Nintendo doesn't see 2D Mario as worth the effort (because they like making 3D Mario more), which is why Galaxy 2 got all the polish over this game and NSMBWii.



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

It's a repackaging of Super Mario All Stars.

It's a collector's item if anything else.  I'm getting it for the CD and the artbook myself.



Pixel Art can be fun.

I haven't got it, but I wouldn't mind so much if the PAL version played in 60hz and Super Mario World 1 and 2 were included.

The real answer is probably this: Some random guy at Nintendo thought "hey we could do something for Mario's 25th anniversary!" and they had to make a package that was worth buying in less than 3 months. So all they could do was pack the SNES game on a disc and put effort into the booklet and package. Fear of bad Christmas sales probably helped here.

This game definitely got priority from a production standpoint: The box looks really great, they made a cool manual for it, the booklet is high quality and the soundtrack CD looks cool. (And it doesn't look like the people responsible for music wanted to show their "genius" with the CD, really. It is just a random collection of songs and the Mario Galaxy soundtrack is definitely one of the most amazing soundtracks in any Mario game)

All that "booh Nintendo hates 2D Mario" is just a stupid Malstrom thing. Last year we got a 2D Mario, this year we got the classic collection, a Mario bundle (and a Donkey Kong Country) and I'd take any bet in 2012 we will see a new 2D Mario for the DS. 2D Mario is probably the most used AAA franchise in Nintendo's developer kitchen right now.

Edit: That also reflects my opinion regarding the OP. I would'Ve liked some more sugar and spice in here as well but I guess the game didn't have much, if any, development time. And I'm really happy we got it I love Allstars

Um, there were loads of complaints about lack of polish from even the gaming community, so saying it's just Malstrom shows you haven't been paying attention.

The sales are showing what the public wants, not necessarily what Nintendo wanted with Mario.

When does it come out!?  I have all of the games for the GBA, DS, N64, GC, and Wii but I wanna play the All Stars version on my TV!!  I already have SMW three times so it's not that big of a deal to me.
