Super Mario 3DS to include more classic power-ups than just the Tanooki suit

Tuesday, 5th July 2011 14:41 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Nintendo has hinted at more classic outfits and the power-ups that go along with them for Super Mario 3DS, which is in addition to the already revealed Tanooki suit.

Speaking with ONM, the game’s director, Yoshiaki Koizumi, said while he could not reveal just yet what is planned for the title, he did say to “definitely” expect “some more familiar suits,” than just the raccoon outfit.

“I can’t reveal the actual number of power-ups in the game right now, but suffice to say that we do try to include enough so that people can enjoy a variety of different kinds of play experiences in the title,” said Koizumi.

“Also, I should point out that we don’t necessarily decide on what number of famous Mario suits will appear in the game and proceed from there — we try to find interesting gameplay ideas and then try to settle on what to do in different places.”

The full interview with Koizumi cam be read in the August issue of Official Nintendo Magazine when it hits stands and mailboxes on July 7.

There’s no date as of yet for Super Mario 3DS.




    Can we stop going back to 1988?

    @1: Why would Nintendo stop? Have you seen all the Nintendo fanboys creaming their pants when they see power-ups and features from the days when Nintendo used to actually try?

    Why make more content when you can just recycle stuff you made 20 years ago? All the fans will cream their pants more when you’re LESS original.

    Looks like we have some nintendo hate and bias going on here.

    First, when has there ever been a 3d mario game with the tanooki suit? Second when has there been a 3d mario game to have the classic mario health and power up system?

    So how is that recycling seeing as that power up has NEVER been used in a 3d mario game? ( which plays completely different from a 2d mario game where the power up originated).

    nintendo haters like to think nintendo just rests on their laurels, but the fact of the matter is they keep innovating on all their main franchises, while still keeping the traditions of older games in their franchises.

    What better way to get fans hyped for their new mario game, than to bring classic 2d mario features into the 3rd dimension?

    Also, the mario galaxy games are the highest rated games this gen. So if they can produce those games “without trying”, i shudder to think what they would do if they did try.
