Bet you were pumped about playing four-way New Super Mario Bros Wii online, right? We were. NoA boss Reggie Fil-Aime was too. That was before “the developers” took all our dreams, hurled them against the rocks of death and turned our lives to glue by making it local-only.
“This was a decision made purely by the developers,” he told Kotaku. “They believe this experience, in the same room, to be elbowing your friends and family members as you’re playing the game [is ideal].
Hear that? It was “their decision.”
“It was really their decision.”
“I personally would have loved for it to be online capable as well, but having played the game, I really can’t fault it for not being online multiplayer,” Reggie added.
The game’s out on Friday.
