YES! The trailers are finally revealed. For the past couple of months, I’ve waited for this day in June when the E3 conference would be held, and Nintendo would offer a sneak peak into the game. Until now, all we knew was that it’s going to be a 3D game, and the return of the Racoon suit. But.. after watching the trailer LIVE on the E3 broadcast.. I was astounded. Take a look at the Official Trailer:
OKAY! So the trailer gave a demo of the amazing 3D world and the enemies and power-ups the game has to offer. I was okay until that point. Yes, I desperately needed a 3DS to play it. However, the next day or so, I discover THIS:
(WATCH IT PLEASE!)
And THAT is what FREAKS ME OUT. AAAAAAAAAA!!! What the..
The familiar 1-2 world we’ve played in the classic games, completey revamped to a fresh new 3D look. That is really what you can call a 3D version of the actual Super Mario Bros. platform games. It is like.. taking the 2.5D New Super Mario Bros. to an entirely new 3D level. I always wondered how they would pull it off, or rather, how would the platformer look in 3D. I thought it would resemble the other 3D games we’ve had, like Super Mario 64, which don’t really come close to the platform version. They are somewhat different in their own way.
But THIS trailer, it seriously feels like you’re playing the platformer, BUT with the added depth of 3D. WOW, sheer brilliance. Mario is one of those things that never fails to amuse me. I don’t have words to express how much this has dazzled me. The music score and sound effects as well give a whole new complimenting feel to it, yet retaining similarity to the older games.
And hence, this is going to be the major reason for me to seriously consider buying the Nintendo 3DS, before or along with the game, by the end of this year as the game release is predicted to be. I don’t care if it’s 20 grand I’ve to spend on this! (20k is the cost for the 3DS in India, plus maybe 2.5k for the game) But I HAVE TO PLAY THIS ASAP!
Meanwhile, do check out screenshots as well as more awesome videos of other demo stages reviewed from the game Thanks for reading.
