Good enough price for me. What I saw looked really interesting, so I'll pick it up. DLC, of course.

Dat green box is tempting though. Would look nice next to NSMB Wii.

Decent price, as long as the levels are really new and not some sort of weird remix thing.

That green box is awesome, but I'm compelled to get it DLC. It's a month earlier and $10 cheaper. I think $20 is what I was looking for.

The green box is rad, that's a better color than the sickening cyan blue the boxes normally are.

Not sure why they didn't package both games together though, sure they eventually will.

Day one DLC for me


Yea we'll probably see a NSMB Ultimate edition or something with all of it for $60 once people stop buying Luigi on its own.

If all the levels are the same, 20 bucks is too much.

What do you mean, the levels are the same? They showed the levels, they're different. And Iwata said "all new levels".

Who told you that? They're all remixed and new. None are copies.

I'm so high on Luigi's Mansion right now I'd probably still buy the Luigi version only!

Luigi has replaced Bowser Jr. as my favorite Mario character, Mario is becoming the Harry Potter of Harry Potter.

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.

I like Luigi too, though.

So glad there's a retail release!! ah!! Now I'm psyched!

There is a retail release?! That... actually makes a lot of sense, now that I think about it. Why not?

@DrFinkelstein Remixed and new are two different things to me. Are they all remixed? Or all new? Or some remixed and some new?

It was my impression that they were all remixed.

Jesus Christ, you and your remixes and remakes!

Was NSMB2 new or a remix?

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.

Are NSMB2 levels remixed? If not, why?

Oops, Guillaume beat me to it.

@Guillaume @Jargon Are you guys actually serious? They were clearly new.

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.

I'm gonna' have to go retail on this. I'm loving that packaging.

I don't think they were clearly new. They were NSMB1 assets, remixed. A few more coins. Some enemies were golden.


There was at least as much new stuff in the footage we saw compared to regular NSMBU as there was in NSMB2 compared to 1.

@Guillaume Reusing assets to make new stages is not the same as reusing stages to make remixed stages.
