Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Miyamoto Talks About The Future Of The 3D Mario Series

Soundwave said:
3D World probably got fast tracked too because it would be easier (read: finished quicker) to develop than a Mario Galaxy style Mario.

They probably wrapped 3D Land, and went into 3D World a few months later.

More obvious still, it was likely that they saw the positive response to 3D Land, combined that with the fact that the "New" series was successful on both console and handheld, and just commissioned a "sequel."

I'm NOT happy that "3D Mario" now means "Galaxy". Does he realise that 64 and Sunshine had unique, worldbuilding, nonlinear qualities that people also liked? Or that random platforms in space, while easy to develop, is no longer innovative?


sunshine shouldnt be in that sentence, it wasnt polished, very glitchy, wasnt innovative, and sold a lot less then say 64, galaxy, or even the current 3d land. Great game, but had a lot of problems and wasnt well liked at all back in the day.

This.

Sunshine certainly had its great moments but there were parts in that game that were just plain bad. Furthermore, many of the levels just didn't feel different enough from one another. Let's just say that if Mario goes on vacation again I hope he chooses a better place...

OT: Fantastic news and I expected as much. Galaxy 3 (or Universe, whatever they call it) has too many great possibilities to ignore... and there's a big enough fan base that wants it.

Galaxy was used because it's mostly what's on current gamers' minds rather than those older ones like 64 and Sunshine.  Just like Galaxy was made with Sunshine/64 in mind.

If other companies dared to bait and switch the core gameplay of their franchises like Nintendo did with 64 to Galaxy they'd be flamed to death.



I want a Super Mario 64 sequel, one with a bigger castle more levels, more pitfalls, and stuff

I'm not exactly sure what this has to do with what I said.

It's nothing like 64/Sunshine and can't be used as a word to stand in for it.

3D Mario's are always fun, so this will be too. No need to worry at least you judge a game by how it looks, or worse, by how it doesn't look.
