Email: Nintendo is stealing 2D Mario assets again

Well, Nintendo is up to its old tricks again. It’s using the old 2D Mario art style to promote the new 3D game.

This artwork looks like it’s right out of the late ’80s/early ’90s.

Why not just make that ‘large world’ 2d Mario game with rich, distinctive worlds using top graphic and sound assets we always wanted? Why is Nintendo so gung-ho on all of us to play 3d Mario? It isn’t like Japan loves 3d Mario. America is the region that 3d Mario sells the best. So what gives?

Just wait until Nintendo starts doing their advertising campaign. It is going to be as big or larger than the Switch promotions we saw during launch. Nintendo is going to blow so much marketing into Oddyssey.

I’m more excited by third party games on Switch. Skyrim on Switch will be fun.

I think I’d rather buy a 2DS XL and NSMB DS 2 to avoid the 3d Mario garbage.
