Time To Party With Classic Mario by ProfessorMegaman Time To Party With Classic Mario by ProfessorMegaman
And now something with a bit wider appeal.

I took the iconic image of Mario from Mario Party 9 and I retro-ized him back to his classic appearance. Many key changes of note are his short, stubbier limbs, his mor rotund physique, cartoon-ish pupils, his curvier moustache and the classic red pants with blue shirt.

I've always liked the RED-BLUE-RED composition on classic Mario. Artistically, it's more fetching to the eye.

Sounds like it would be a fan-pleasing novelty, but I can't imagine how it would play. 3-D and 2-D Mario are so drastically different. They could do a Sonic Generations-type of thing, but I think it would strengthen the divide even more.

I think they should just make a Super Mario Bros. 3 in full-fledged 8-Bit style ala' Megaman 9. It makes sense. Megaman 9 faithfully recreated the feel of fan-favorite title Megaman 2, the new Zelda game resonates with the original Link to the Past... Surely Mario deserves the same treatment.

I dunno, man. They could change 2-D Mario's controls for the one game?

I hear Mario Maker is going to have the option to switch between 8-Bit and New Super Mario Bros. style graphics, but will play with 8-Bit physics regardless.

NSMB with NES style controls... sounds like a dream come true.
Now if only they could do something about the music...

It's still in development, what we were shown was only a little demo, don't worry, there should be more features. c:

2d mario could be side scolling, while 3d mario could be like 3d land
