    Default Super Mario 3D Land




    Genre:
    Platformer
    Developer: Nintendo
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Release: 18 November 2011

    "Super Mario", is an upcoming game of the Super Mario franchise for the Nintendo 3DS. It seems to be closely based on side-scrolling Mario games, but is a 3D platformer in the vein of games like Super Mario 64, marking the first time an original 3D Mario platformer has appeared on a handheld console, disregarding Super Mario 64 DS as a remake rather than a new game. The game is being created by the same development team that worked on the Super Mario Galaxy series, currently being part of Nintendo EAD Tokyo. As it will be a new 3D installment in the main Mario series, Super Mario follows Super Mario Galaxy 2 in this respect.

    The gameplay of Super Mario for 3DS will be similar to previous 3D Super Mario games, which include Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Galaxy, and Super Mario Galaxy 2. However, the game will include features that have, until now, only been seen in the side-scrolling Super Mario games, such as Small Mario, a feature present in the side-scrolling games since the first Super Mario Bros..

    While giving examples of how the Nintendo 3DS enhances gameplay, Shigeru Miyamoto has stated that hitting blocks from underneath in 3D Mario games would be easier with stereoscopic 3D. Among the notable new objects are medals that appear similar to the Comet Medals coming from Super Mario Galaxy 2, but it is unknown if they will function in the same manner. The graphics of the game greatly resemble Super Mario Galaxy and its sequel, as it is being developed by the same team that made those games, while some of the areas shown so far share visual similarities with New Super Mario Bros. and New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

    Can't wait for this. If it's anything like SMB3 then I'm in.

    Thing I can see:
    Logo - Obviously the tail from the tanooki suit is pretty obvious and done just like it was in the SMB 3 logo. A good sign.
    Pic 2 - The block has an arrow on it like those in mario 3's world 7. Some of which you could jump on to change the direction of the arrow.
    Pic 3 - Small mario is here from the 2d games. He has no hat probably so it's easier to tell him apart.
    Pic 4 - It looks like there's a comet coin at the top of this screenshot like those in SMG 2.

    That's all I got.

    All the shots resemble an isometric viewpoint... think Street Fighter IV

    Rumour has it that the release will be the beginning of August, nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
