NSMB outsold Mario Galaxy massivly on the Wii. NSMB is the bigger title and more popular title so it makes more sense to launch with that rather than a 3D Mario game.
Also NSMB games do not appear every year at all. The original DS game was released in 2006. The wii version 2009. NSMB 2 on the 3DS and Wii U 2012.



You do know smartglass is not a replica of the wii u gamepad.
Its being launched with the Wii U as its a quick gain, doubt its that hard to covert it from 3DS to wii U and add a few bells and whistles.

It's a completely new game. It's a big difference from NSMB 2.

Also, NSMB 2 was made mostly by group of developers new to creating 2D Mario games, while NSMB U is being done by the experienced 2D Mario developers.

Yes I know its not a port but my point is that its the idea's and game design that is in the standard 2d side scrolling supermario bros games. They can take a lot of the ideas that already exist making it a quick gain, and a lot easier then developing a proper 3D mario word style game or a new zelda game.

IMO its just a quick an easy release game that took them minimal time to do. I mean this new console has been in the pipeline for years, they should have put together a team to design a brand new mario game or a new zelda. Nintendo are best when they develop their own games not bring out games that are on other consoles.

How do you know that Nintendo aren't working on such a game? It's possible that they're taking their time with it to make it the best they possibly can.

Anyway, the Wii U release games don't look particularly stunning, but I'm getting a Wii U anyway, because it shouldn't be too long until the really good games are released such as a Galaxy-style 3D Mario game or a Pokémon Colosseum-style game.
However, I'm most looking forward to the inevitable Mario Kart Wii U. The Mario Karts are my favourite ever games so I can't wait until the next one. Hopefully Nintendo will release it before the end of 2013.

I can guarantee they are well underway into development of a new 3D Mario title (and Metroid, Zelda, F-Zero and Star Fox), it's obvious NSMB Wii U is just filler, it's not a game I'm particularly excited about but Nintendo and co will be working on these games.

The mistake they made is not announcing any of them, as there will be a number of people like yourself who think Nintendo are sat twiddling their thumbs.

Nintendo have a policy these days that they don't like to reveal a game until a few months before it's out so they can fully pump the hype machine and people don't get burnout like has happened with many other games. There are a few exceptions due to delays but that's their policy, and it's much better than revealing a game two years before launch

The mistake they made is not getting one of the big games ready for release date, the game list on release date is very uninspiring hence why many are gonna wait until a bigger game arrives, by then the unit will be down to 100 quid or so as well.

I'm not falling for that. The article has taken his words and twisted them, he only asked what fans would like to see different to what's come before, he's not going to just casually announce they're working on one in the middle of an interview.

So one's coming then?

Why would he be surprised at the popularity of F-zero and the desire for it to continue. I believe he is just testing the waters, asking fans their opinion but I think they are working on one. I'll happily eat my words if I'm wrong but that's what I honestly believe. Let's be honest there's not many futuristic racers these days and F-Zero would go down well.

If they genuinely aren't working on one and he's not wearing his poker face then Nintendo are total idiots.

From what i've seen the interview was in Japanese, translated to french, which was then translated to English, so yes there is plentiful opportunity for miscommunication or word twisting. I hope thats the case because I despair if it isn't

They really do need to do a new F-Zero and i mean full fat proper one, with all the trimmings on the Wii U (not 3DS)

I've just cancelled my Wii U pre-order as I can't make my mind up about it after some consideration. I think I will find having to keep looking down at the controller a distraction. I know a DS has two screens, but they are in the same line of sight.
For the price it is, I will keep my Wii for Nintendo games and see what the next 360/PS3 brings

I must admit, I'm not keen on the new controller or the "asymmetric gameplay", but I'm still getting a Wii U mainly for the brilliant Nintendo games which will no doubt be released. I can only hope that Mario Kart Wii U will be perfectly playable without the annoying tablet thing. In fact, I sincerely hope it is because no-one in their right mind is going to buy multiple tablet controllers in order to play multiplayer.

You might be ok and just use the touchscreen to select power-ups?
I just think that for certain games, e.g. Zombi U where you get really immersed into a story, having to break away from the TV, however momentarily, breaks that immersion

I know they have sold out of initial stock seemingly but that's probably regular Nintendo gamers not new to the Nintendo market.

This must be a sign they know they are wrong to drop motion gaming:

They know people are all buying Kinect this xmas.

So basically, it's sold out but its still failing.

If Nintendo brought out the best console imaginable and it sold so well that Microsoft and Sony went out of buisiness you would still yammer on about how its a failure.

Or they just like money and want to make sure they make as much as possible before they drop it.

They released a redesigned NES after the SNES was already out.
They released a redesigned SNES after the N64 was out.
They released the Gameboy Micro after the DS was out.

So basically, it's sold out but its still failing.

I don't recall a redesigned NES or SNES ever hitting the UK, I remember them in the US but not here.

The redesigned SNES definitely never came out over here, probably because European and Japanese SNES cartridges weren't physically compatible with US systems. The top-loading version of the NES I think actually did get a UK release, albeit in very limited quantities.

Outside of Nintendo, Sony released the compact PSone only a couple of months before the PlayStation 2 hit the market, and I seem to recall Sega released a more compact Master System after the Mega Drive had already been out for a while.

The Wii U can only handle 1 WiiU GamePad, 2 at most but it'll hamper performance. As such, Mario Kart will have the option to play with the Pro Controller or Wii Remote. Relax

Don't they make money when a first party game is bought with the WiiU and Mario and nintendoland are the biggest

The bottomline for a company is profit and if they only sold one unit and made a profit of 1p then the machine is still a success
