Could a Mario FPS work?

I think "over-saturation of first person shooters" is an over-saturated statement, considering the variety within that designation.  People tend to lump everything "FPS" together even when those games are not in the same genre or have key differences.  

On topic, I think Nintendo wants the visual of Mario on the screen most of the time.  They are very zealous about protecting their primary brand since they lean so heavily on it.  

However, I could see some type of game where you "help" Mario as a different character in FPP, perhaps in a Slime Rancher type environment.

I think a Mario game where you can't see Mario is bad for branding. Just a red sleeve and white glove holding a gun... yeah I can't say that would be smart. It's a neat idea, but not for Nintendo - they're market leaders, not followers.

They're clearly both, even if the following part is at a slow and deliberate pace.

Mario vs Splatoon



really dislike this idea.... hope not.



I think having a mascot based game where you can’t see the character somewhat defeats the purpose. Otherwise, there’s nothing about the Mario universe that screams improvement in first-person unlike say a James Bond or Metroid game.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

I think Splatoon kind of fills that niche.

That said, I'd love more objective-based first-person shooters with local multiplayer, like GoldenEye -- on any system, really.

How 'bout we get that Metroid Prime game first

Yes, that's a lost art. Wish Nintendo would do a new IP that's a GoldenEye-inspired shooter.

We were going to have that, but it became Splatoon, and that's a good thing.

I would love some DLC for Splatoon 2 that pits team inkling against team Mario. Team inkling obviously has to cover territory with ink and team Mario have to clean it up with F.L.U.D.D. 😀



Mario has been going for what? 30 years now, you know he'll be going for many more, of course at some point he'll show up in a FPS



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8
