NSMB2 looks really samey. The Wii U version seems to have some cool stuff going on with its environments and music.

As a whole the NSMB games have pretty run of the mill music, and that's always a shame. I wasn't pleased to hear more generica when NSMBU was "revealed", but I did see one level with really nice music. I'll link it later. It seems like its the sky level from the show though.

Edit: And though NSMB usually has very average to sub-average music, there were some standout tracks from NSMBW. Oh and ironically, I rather like the NSMB theme, but it's overstayed it's welcome at this point.

I was very happy with Mario 3D Land's main theme. It reminded me a lot of both Super Mario 3 (which it took some parts from) and Super Mario 64.

Koopalings and Co-op confirmed? Did we know about co-op?

Is it local and wi-fi, or local only?

That they haven't said yet.

I'm almost certain that the music is new. It's quite similar but not exactly the same.

If that beachy music isn't EXACTLY the same, it's very close. I distinctly remember it because it sounded more appropriate for a Mario Kart game. That's the same song. I'll pull it up if I get a chance.

The beach music of NSMB2 is the same composition as the beach music in NSMBWii, if it isn't the exact same tune.


Same deal with NSMB2's desert:


And underground theme. And the tower theme. If they aren't using the same exact MIDI files here, they are so very similar that only side-by-side comparisons would reveal the differences.

@PogueSquadron@Mop it up
Yeah, you'e right actually. The sound effects fooled me into thinking it was a different arrangement. BTW Mop that desert music is with the Yoshi drums.

That's a shame. I know it's a new game and everything, but it's things like this that just make it seem like an expansion pack for another game.

Let's wait and see. Last E3, I remember being pissed that Mario Kart 7 used samples from Mario Kart Wii, but thankfully it turned out otherwise in the end.

My sister and I rolled our eyes when we saw the coin gimmick. Seems like it would get old very fast.
