We all known Mario comes in many shapes and sizes, and the Mario franchise has had great success over the years.
I love it when Nintendo treats us to a new spin on a Mario game. One of my favourite styles of Mario has to be paper mario when that first came out on N64. I enjoyed how Sunshine Mario played on the Gamecube and fell in love with the style of Mario Galaxy for the Wii. Even the 3DS added depth to Super Mario 3DS and was one of the only games I fully enjoyed in 3D.
So at this week's E3 conference I was expecting a new style of Mario games for the WiiU but instead was given the same types of game as before just with one or two changes such as collecting lots of gold, or stickers.
I think Nintendo should have created a new style of Mario games for the launch of WiiU, and I couldn't have found a better image to express that than the one I found on reddit that was created by Orioto.
You can keep the mechanics of mario the same but by giving it a new look very similar to Ivy the Kiwi or A boy and his Blob it would have felt like they had spent time to Make a new game, and not just add a few extras to old existing titles.
I am not here to bad mouth mario games, but instead express I was disappointed we didn't get anything new.
Am I the only one who feels this way?
