Let us look at NOE’s NSMB 2 trailer:
The two things that really kill NSMB 2 are:
Super Mario Brothers games are not about collecting ‘things’. Keep that crap in 3d Mario where it belongs. Or in Yoshi or Wario games.
-That damn music
When has Super Mario Brothers games ever reused their music? They remixed 1-2 in SMB 3. The wah wah music is bad enough, but why is it being copy and pasted with each game?
When NSMB Wii originally came out, I mentioned that the sales were actually depressed because of the lack of new assets like music and graphics. I remember saying that Nintendo only could get a pass this one time because it was fifteen plus years of no 2d Mario. People won’t recognize the lack of asset effort since the only thing they can compare it to are 16-bit and 8-bit graphics. Now, everyone is seeing what a cheap ass job Nintendo did with the game.
If you’re going to reuse music, why not reuse Galaxy’s music or give us a choice in the music.
Above: If they are going to reusue music, how about something that actually sounds good?
