Nintendo's on a Mario 3 kick lately.

Yes, but the closest Nintendo has come to my dream game lately is Super Mario 3D Land... which was painfully close. All I need now is a Wii U game that expands on that--and improves here and there--and I can die a happy man.

This looks pretty boss.

Were we reading the same article? This game couldn't look any more phoned-in if it tried. Also,

the closest Nintendo has come to my dream game lately is Super Mario 3D Land

Personally, I thought it was just an attempt to shove more 3D Mario down our throats.

There's nothing wrong with well-executed 3D Mario. They're fun games, when done well (and Super Mario 3D Land was done VERY well). When a publisher sells another 3D game--which is what many, many people want--that's not shoving something down our throats. It's responding to demand. I like the classic 2D stuff too (though in general, the New Super Mario Bros. games have fallen a bit short), but franchises need to evolve to remain relevant. Not every game can be a throwback. Super Mario 3D Land made nearly all the right moves.

2D Mario outsells 3D Mario at every turn.

Responding to demand would therefore entail giving 2D Mario the big budget and letting 3D Mario take the backseat for awhile.

"2D Mario outsells 3D Mario at every turn," you say as though 3D Mario does't sell millions of copies every time. I don't get it, are you complaining that Nintendo releases too many of the same games or not enough?

If companies only made new games in their single best selling franchise, Nintendo would basically just release Wii Play over and over again.
