Standalone version will be sold in stores on August 25th for $29.99. Play as Luigi, Blue and Yellow Toad, or the newcomer Nabbit. Nabbit is invulnerable to obstacles but cannot gain powerups in the traditional Mario fashion.
I'll always enjoy the pure delight that Mario seems to feel about going about his various tasks. He just loves life despite the deadly situations he often finds himself in. I find that quality very appealing.
@Jargon Yeah, Mario 64 was best at capturing that feeling, Mario was hilarious in that game, especially when he fell asleep and started dreaming about "lasagna", haha, good ole semi-racist Italian stereotype that I'm probably an asshole for finding endearing.
Remix means you actually take a stage that already exists... and make changes. The DNA of the original level very, very much can shine through in a lot of cases, especially if the changes are minimal. Actually if the changes are minimal it's not even just DNA, it's just the old stage with some changes.
New means you start from scratch.
This isn't that confusing. There is a difference. And my understanding is that when Nintendo announced this awhile back, they announced it as remixed stages. I could be wrong on that point, but that is what I recall.
