Super Mario 3D Land director Koichi Hayashida has said Nintendo tested the possibility of bringing Super Mario Galaxy 2 to 3DS, but Mario’s size and the game’s general mechanics proved prohibitive.

“When we created Super Mario Galaxy, we were trying to create the types of surprises and fresh experiences that you would have on a vacation. For Super Mario 3D Land, which is a portable game that people can play away from home, we added features like the ability to complete a stage in two to three minutes. The portable and console Mario games share the same core, namely, the fun of freely controlling and becoming Mario, and in that regard, there is no distinction between the two types of games.”
– Yoshiaki Koizumi, speaking to Kotaku about the newly-released Super Mario 3D Land.

Nintendo staffers Koichi Hayashida and Yoshiaki Koizumi recall their feelings on working on Mario power-ups under the guidance of creator Shigeru Miyamoto, speaking with Kotaku.
