Forums - Nintendo Discussion - I Don't Want Super Mario Galaxy 3

Tagged games:

As much as I want a true 3D mario title, the last thing I want it to be is Galaxy 3.

Super Mario Galaxy is one of the greatest and most well designed games of the 7th generation. The amount of creativity shown in the game is almost mind blowing. I've beaten the game atleast 5+ times. But, I view Galaxy as it's own standalone masterpiece, similar to games like Metroid Prime, I always felt that the game didn't really need a sequel. But it got one.

Galaxy 2 wasn't a game I owned until 2013 when it dropped to $30. It was a major disappointment, in fact I'd go as far to say that it was my biggest disappointment of Gen 7 aside from Twilight Princess and Super Smash Bros Brawl. It just felt, for lack of a better word, shittier.

The condensed overworld was unexciting, the Yoshi mechanic I found to be dull, it was too linear for a "true 3D mario", the levels we're too easy, and the power ups we're just meh. It's not at bad game by any means, it's just "shittier" than the original Galaxy.

If Galaxy 2 was like this, I can only imagine what a Galaxy 3 would be like. I would much rather have a game in the same vain as Super Mario 64 or the original Galaxy. Unfortunetly, Galaxy 3 has sort of kind of already been confirmed by the creator who said that they weren't abandoning the Galaxy formula. I can only hope that they make use of the Wii U's capabilities and make the scale of the levels and the overworld huge. If it isn't I'll just keep playing 3D World to be honest.

Galaxy 2 was incredible, best platformer ever made in my opinion.

Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

Neither do I. I want either a new IP that has the impact of a Mario 64, or another Mario that does. We haven't had an industry changing core Nintendo game since the N64. That's quite a long time. I want to see that magic again.

I mostly agree. I want a new inventive and unique 3D mario not just a third installment in the galaxy series

I want a Super Mario Galaxy 3 ;(

Or a Super Mario Universe with more fleshed out worlds :O

Galaxy 2>>>1

Much higher level of difficulty, complete mastery of gravity mechanics. Amazing OST, Yoshi. It was my favorite game of last generation.

That being said, I don't want Galaxy 3. Give us something completely new.

That's what I want ._. substainially larger worlds and a bigger a more fleshed out overworld would be amazing. I think Super Mario Galaxy 1+2 we're the only ones where there weren't actual stars in the overworld. I want that to change in the next title.

Mario Galaxy 2 was clearly superior to the first one. It was an absolutely phenominal game. My personal favourite game of all time, beating even Ocarina of Time.

I can hardly wait for Super Mario Galaxy 3. I am not sure why you wouldn't want Nintendo's flagship franchise to continue?

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Galaxy 2 played very annoying music when you powered up. God I hated that. It would last the duration of the power. But I agree with op. 64 and Sunshine had essentially open worlds! That's why they are my favorites. Galaxy is linear pathed.

Agreed. Super Mario 64 2 please.
