Poll III: Where Is NSMB2 Headed?


Super Mario Bros. Release History:


Super Mario Bros. - 1985
Super Mario Bros. 2 - 1986
Super Mario Bros. 3 - 1988

Super Mario Land - 1989
Super Mario Land 2 - 1992

Super Mario Bros. 4 (SMW) - 1990

Super Mario 64 - 1996

Super Mario Sunshine - 2002

New Super Mario Bros. - 2006

Super Mario Galaxy - 2007

The above shows the proximity of main-line flagship Mario titles released per system and the years in which they were released. Notably, the last time a direct sequel for a flagship Mario game appeared on the same system as its predecessor was NINETEEN HUNDRED AND NINETY-TWO. That's 16 years, fellas.

Clearly, NSMB is the best selling Mario title since the original (please refer to the amazing chart produced and maintained by Stumpokapow), so those that would argue that NSMB2 is bound for the DS would have a convincing argument.

So what do you think? Will Nintendo follow the last decade and a half of precedent or will they take advantage of the enormous install base of the DS? Will they actually make a direct sequel, or will they continue with their history of reinventing Mario for their next machine?

I think Mario will keep getting reinvented as long as Nintendo is still around. Every new Mario adventure has an interesting twist or a new ability that keeps gamers interested.
