Email: A theory about NSMBU DX

Mind you this is just a theory but here’s my reason for the remaster of New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe.

Recently we found out that Sonic Mania Plus had 52% of sales on Switch. It’s almost like people like classic 2D platformers that play like their originals.

My guess is Nintendo saw Sonic Mania Plus’s Switch sales and didn’t want to be shown up by Sega. There wasn’t enough time to make a new 2D Mario quickly and Miyamoto doesn’t want to make a truly good 2D Mario so it was quick and easy to repackage NSMBU.

I’d like to hope this means that a new 2D Mario might show up soon but I won’t hold my breath.

It is the second best selling game on Wii U. Nintendo needs a game for January so NSMB U is sent to die.
