  • Super Mario Party has been announced! And the car is gone! Woo! And we're going back to the original Mario Party style! THE TRUE MARIO PARTY THAT RUINS FRIENDSHIPS RETURNS!

Super Mario Galaxy 2

  • Well, the first game was pretty good, but I feel like a sequel would pretty much just be a rehash of the fir... MARIO'S RIDING YOSHI!! DO WANT!!
  • That drill powerup is where it's at.
  • When they said that there were going to be over 240 Stars, people wondered whether it would actually be that many, or if it would be split between Mario and Luigi like the original. However, as the page image shows, Luigi is available early on and can be used instead of Mario if you choose from that point on.
    • The Green Stars (the 2nd half of the 240 stars) aren't really proper star missions, they're just hidden in the levels rather than actually being proper missions.
  • The game features a classic level from Super Mario 64.

Super Mario 3D Land

Super Mario 3D World

  • When the game was first announced, some fans were excited because for the first time in a quarter of a century, Princess Peach is playable in a mainline Mario title. You know what they say about payback, Bowser....
    • Not only is the Princess playable, but Blue Toad is too. This makes the roster Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Blue Toad. Sound familiar?
  • After its first announcement in E3, there has been a section of fans who were underwhelmed by the game, claiming it to be far too similar to its predecessor and lacking "real" new content that hasn't been done in another Mario game. These opinions have lightened up considerably after another trailer was shown at the beginning of October 2013 that demonstrates multiple elements unique to this game:
    • Not only is there a World Map, it is now fully explorable, allowing you to walk off the paths and even jump.
    • There's a new cherry power-up that clones you! It even copies your other power-ups, meaning you could have an army of Fire Marios throwing a barrage of fireballs.
    • The tanks from Super Mario Bros. 3 are back!
    • You can wear a Bill Blaster block as a power-up!
    • You can carry a friendly Piranha Plant to eat your enemies!
    • There's a level where you become a shadow on the wall!
    • Bowser fights you while driving a Cool Car!
    • Chargin' Chucks return! After years of being absent from the Mario series!
    • The Comet Observatory is in the game and plays some sort of role!
  • You can race against up to three other people's Miis as Racing Ghosts online.
  • Rosalina is a playable character!
  • The Goomba Shoe is back, sort of. It's more of a Goomba Skate, but it's still fun to use!
  • On a similar subject, there's going to be a full-fledged game based of the "Adventures of Captain Toad" levels!

Super Mario Maker

  • The biggest bomb for the Super Mario Bros. franchise has, at long last, been dropped: user-generated Mario levels will eventually become a reality without the need to hack a game. It took them a while, but still, this possibility finally seems to be coming after all. And no, we're not talking about the Level Editor seen in the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series: we're talking about the real deal!
  • Oh, that big bomb? Right here? It's GONNA BLOW!
  • In addition to the original Super Mario Bros. and New Super Mario Bros. U, you can also make levels in the style of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World.
  • The Raccoon Leaf is back, meaning power-ups won't be limited to ones present in the first Super Mario Bros.
  • No longer content with being a skate or a sticker, the bonafide Kuribo's Shoe, one of the most beloved power-ups in the series, is back! It also has an alternate appearance in the form of a high heel!
  • The game has some brand new power-ups, like a Spiny Helmet that can kill Thwomps!
  • The devious yet awesome levels from the Nintendo World Championships will be included in the game!
  • Any amiibo besides the Miis can be used as a costume in the game, including Sonic, Chibi-Robo, Wii Fit Trainer, Isabelle, Bowser, and the previously-snubbed Pokémon. And you don't even need the figurines to unlock the costumes; you can also unlock them by beating the 100-Mario Challenge, which pleased fans who didn't want to buy them all or were having trouble finding rare amiibo.
    • The costumes aren't just limited to just those characters that have an amiibo based on them, as the line-up also includes Ashley and Tingle.
    • On a related note, this is the first official Mario platformer that features Waluigi, after years of just being a spin-off character.
    • After being snubbed for so many months, Daisy is finally confirmed for a costume!
    • To coincide with the 20th Anniversary of Pokémon, the three starter Pokemonnote  from Generation I, gets their own costumes! Plus these costumes have Pokemon sound effects after being Screwed by the Lawyers.
    • After a 4-month drought of new costumes, Nintendo finally released a new Event Course, along with a new costume Undodog! Nintendo didn't abandon the game yet.
  • The 11/4 update features CHECKPOINTS!

Super Mario Maker 2

  • Super Mario Maker 2 is happening! And it's got more level themes, elements from Super Mario 3D World, and the long-requested slopes!
  • There's a multiplayer mode. And alongside Toad (blue), Toadette is here and playable in every style, including the SMB1, SMB3 and SMW ones!

Mario Tennis

  • Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash, eh? It's just Mario Tennis Open in High Defi- THEY CAN GROW BIGGER!?
    • The Mega Mushroom was a pretty cool mechani- ROSALINA IS PLAYABLE!? IN HER SPORTS OUTFIT!? AND SHE LEVITATES!?
    • DAISY IS BACK! Finally, an HD artwork of her (she didn't have her new artwork render since Mario Golf: World Tour, which was last year), and she looks gorgeous.
    • An exciting launch offer for European Wii U users that if you purchase this game, you can get the original Mario Tennis for the N64 for free!
    • It's not exactly amazing, but the Green Sprixie Princess is playable, bringing a lasting element to 3D World!
    • Although Ultra Smash didn't get our high expectations, at least this game got great graphics, animations and music.
  • After how bare bones Ultra Smash was, how will Aces make up for it? Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi have new tennis outfits? You can break the opponent's racket? There's a story mode like the Game Boy games? This is starting to get interesting.
    • One of the new characters is a Chain Chomp!
    • Along with Petey Piranha as one of the bosses in story mode, Gooper Blooper makes a surprising appearance!
    • Koopa Troopa and Blooper will be the post-launch playable characters, unlocked when you join the July 2018 and August 2018 online tournaments respectively. Returning favorites like Diddy Kong, Birdo and Koopa Paratroopa will be added as well, for the September-November 2018 online tournaments!
      • In the September 13, 2018 Nintendo Direct, Shy Guy and Petey Piranha are confirmed to return as well.
      • Luma and Boom Boom will be the new additions to the roster for Mario Tennis Aces. And the real "(jump up) superstar" of the show...Pauline will finally make her playable debut in a Mario spin-off game! The three characters will be added for the January-March 2019 online tournaments.
      • Kamek and Dry Bones (who were non-playable opponents in Adventure) will set foot on the tennis court as new playable characters, as they will be added for the April-May online tournaments.
      • Fire Piranha Plant PIPES UP! And Dry Bowser returns once again. These characters will be added for the June-July online tournaments.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games

Vancouver 2010

  • A new Mario and Sonic Olympics title? Yawn. It doesn't take much imagination to think that they're just doing it to cash in on the hype of the Olympics for a quick bu- Wait a minute... was that Metal Sonic? On a home console game for the first time since Sonic Heroes, no less! SEGA, consider it sold.
    • Adding Bowser Jr. and a Perfect Chaos cameo helped as well.
    • Not to mention the remixes of many classic Mario and Sonic themes, including a fantastic remix of Bowser's Road and Sky Sanctuary Zone.
    • I really wished this game had Omega, King Boo, etc... BOSS BATTLE AGAINST THEM!!! Done and done!

Rio 2016

  • They're still going on with this series after Sochi? Well...I guess it's worth a look unless...wait a minute... there are new characters in this game? Sticks The Badger, Nabbit and Diddy Kong are playable? Consider me interested!
    • While I like the rivals introduced in Vancouver, it would be nice to play as them- ROUGE THE BAT AND JET THE HAWK are PLAYABLE NOW? Thank you Nintendo and Sega!
    • While I like the new characters are introduced, it would be nice to finally let Rosalina play in the Olympics since she's been in everything else -ROSALINA IS PLAYABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THIS SERIES! HELL YES!
    • WAVE THE SWALLOW, LUDWIG VON KOOPA, AND WENDY KOOPA are PLAYABLE? WHO THE HELL EXPECTED THAT? No one did But I'm so GLAD it happened! Take my coins, Nintendo!
    • WHAT? There's More! We have ZAVOK, OMEGA, EGGMAN NEGA, DRY BOWSER, ROY KOOPA, LARRY KOOPA, CREAM THE RABBIT, and ESPIO THE CHAMELEON joining the party! They're going all out for this game for sure!

Tokyo 2020

  • Another one of these? I wonder what Sega's going to do to interest... wait a minute... "2D" events set during the 1964 Olympics, with the characters being represented by old school game sprites and play mechanics similar to Track & Field? I'm curious.

Paper Mario: Color Splash

  • This game's just going to be a rehash of Sticker Star, isn't it? Why does Nintendo see this as the new Paper Mario standard? If they don't give me a reason to buy it, then—wait, the Koopalings are going to have their paper selves revealed? The cards DON'T take up too much space? And on top of that, it does look pretty gorgeous...this just might be worth getting.

Super Mario Odyssey

  • So a new Mario game has been announced for the Nintendo Switch. Nothing too surprising, but it's doubtful they'll try anything ne-WAAAAAAAAIT A SEC, is Mario running through a Mexico-esque level with "Day of the Dead" vibes?!
  • The Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017 Trailer reveals a bunch off new juicy bits. For starters, the other levels that Mario can explore include a real world looking city, a lush jungle/rainforest with machinery that seems to be abandoned, and a fruit salad world with a polygony-esque design. Mario can now toss his hat like a boomerang and bounce on it like a trampoline, and seems to have his own spaceship to help him travel the world. Bowser is planning on forcing Princess Peach to marry him, and seems to be teaming up with a bunch of new baddies, rather than the Koopalings, Bowser Jr., and/or Boom-Boom & Pom-Pom again. Oh, and the previously mentioned Mexico-esque level with "Day of the Dead" vibes also has a sphinx-like creature that Mario can ride. Yeah, "doubtful they'll try anything new" Mario's cap's newfound eyes!
  • Fans who missed the more open levels from Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine, compared to the linear levels from the more recent 3D Mario games, were thrilled that Odyssey would be more of a Wide Open Sandbox.
  • The E3 2017 trailer reveals that Mario can possess into anything, from a Goomba, Hammer Bro., Bullet Bill and A FREAKING T-REX!!!
    • Surprising that Pauline makes her debut in a Super Mario game, and she's a mayor of New Donk City.
  • Every kingdom looks different, and they're all gorgeous. This is definitely a game you'll want to take in and explore...which is why it's great that you can!

WarioWare Gold

  • Oh cool, new WarioWare title! Let's see what they got in st—did Wario just speak in full sentences!? We finally have a Mario game, spin-off or otherwise, that has full voice acting!? Nintendo, you gotta stop doin' this to us, man!


  • I really want a copy of the Super Mario Adventures graphic novel but it costs one hundred dollars on ebay and Amazon new & used. This is just a problem we'll never solv- Wait, what? It has been announced that it's coming back? They are releasing a new edition of the graphic novel? And there are inviting Pokemon Adventures and Dragon Ball publisher Viz Media to reprint the timeless Nintendo Power comic series? Yeah!
    • And to make this thing even more awesome, they are releasing it in book stores and comic book shops across The United States, as well on digital online retailers! You know what this means, Nintendo??? I'm so going to get this thing when it comes out this October!
  • Looks like E3's just around the corner, so hopefully Nintendo won't disappoint-say that again. Bowser might finally get his own game? THE GODS OF VIDEO GAMING HAS ANSWERED OUR CALLS AT LAST! BRING IT ON, E3!!
  • An update for Super Mario Run? Why would they want to... Daisy is confirmed to be playable? In a Mario platformer?
    • Looks like the update adds a new world with nine courses in the main mode. I don't want to expect the same course themes in this game all over agai... a Forest-themed course?
  • And now for one of the biggest bombs ever dropped...nope, not that kind. You remember the Mario film back in '93? No? Back then, the movie industry had their first attempt on debuting the first film based on a video game, and there were like less than 30 Mario games at that time. Now, with the franchise that has over 200 games and other video game franchises are entering the modern age of films, Nintendo has partnered with Illumination Entertainment to produce an animated Mario movie. It looks like Mario's finally TRULY coming to the big screen.

How well does it match the trope?
