It's going to take some doing to top NSMBU! I'm sure it'll be great, though - main-series Mario games are never poor.
Game Over, Yeah!!

Glad that they're giving the 2D a break - should be interesting.
Stoke City: finally a football team, apparently.

I enjoy 3D mario more 2D mario and I think that Super Mario Galaxy 2 is the Best Wii Game and one the best games ever.

I concluded that NSMBU is the second best game ever made.

Mario 64 used to be, in my eyes, but NSMBU edges it.

Still loved Galaxy 1 and 2, and Sunshine, but this needs to be REALLY special to beat NSMBU!
Game Over, Yeah!!

Awesome. With the best Mario game to date being SMG2 (that reminds me, I need to finish NSMBU sometime), this game will hopefully beat that game to the title of best main series Mario game.

I don't want this to be a Mario Galaxy sequel, I want the Wii U to have its own special Mario game. Excited for what will make this unique, and the excitement of the anticipation as well!

Given the fact that its only been a year since Super Mario 3D Land, I hope the game isn't being rushed.
Dear Nintendo, GIVE US AN ALL NEW STARFOX!!! please...

This is going to help Wii U sales big time when it gets released.

It might be two years before it's out yet! And it may have been in development for 5 years already for all we know.

I can't wait to see what they come up with. Super Mario 64 is still my personal favourite 3D Mario game, so I'm personally wishing that it'll be more like that. In fact, I made a post about what I'd like to see in a new 3D Mario game, which I'll re-post here if you don't mind:

MartinIsAwesome wrote:I can see a lot of potential for a platforamer that switches the action between the TV and the GamePad screen.
Taking the example of Mario game where going down a pipe on the TV takes you to an Underground stage that plays out on the GamePad.
Alternatively, imagine a game where at first, nothing (or something very basic) is shown on the TV screen and you play the game on the GamePad in a Hub World, like Peach's Castle in SM64 for example. Then, only when you jump into a portal to gain access to level (like the paintings) all the action switches to the TV where this giant world unfolds. That would be a rather magical moment.

Very excited to hear this. The 3D Mario games have been my favourite Mario's since 64, I just hope it's not another Galaxy-esque game. It can re-use some of the incredible ideas and all that, but some other completely unique environment or returning to the series 3D beginnings would be awesome. Even a hint of story a la Galaxy would go down very well too :)
