Super Mario 3D Land director Koichi Hayashida has told IGN that Nintendo has tested the possibility of putting Super Mario Galaxy 2 on the Nintendo 3DS but found that Mario looked like a speck so the game turned out to be immensely difficult to play. Would you pay good money to play the fantastic Super Mario Galaxy 2 on your Nintendo 3DS?
“When we started developing [Super Mario 3D Land], we displayed Super Mario Galaxy 2 on a small TV monitor and found that Mario looked like a speck and that the game was difficult to play.
“This led us to look into the camera and terrain types that would be conducive to playing on a portable screen with a relatively large Mario. If we were making a console game, from the very start, we wouldn’t have been thinking about any of those things, and I think the game would have probably been a lot different.”
I would love that game on my 3DS.
I disliked the Galaxy series as a whole. Worst idea ever… Mario in space? Seriously.
And the mobile site has this Follow link that just bounces all over the page blocking the image and articles. No way to really get rid of it either. Looks like a CSS problem.
How can you say that? You don’t even seem to care about the game, only the name.
It’s something different.
You said WHAT about one of the greatest video games of all time?
Seriously, if you can play Galaxy and not have fun, you have no soul and probably shouldn’t be playing video games.
What? Mario Galaxy was a great idea. No doubt my favorite 3D Mario Game.
Troll, gtfo, nobody gives two shits.
: / People ask for something new with Mario, and all you hear is that it’s the same. Sure Mario in space is strange, but there’s no other games like it.
Oh I SEE . . . soo we gettin it or not LOL
The fact that they were considering it is awesome but I’m glad they were smart and figured out what would work for 3D Land.
Whoa, i thought Galaxy could run perfectly on a 3DS. I’ve never played Galaxy so i wouldn’t know anyways.
The problem is not whether it could run on the 3DS or not; it’s how you would play it.
Sounds like it would have been a great challenge to collect all the Power Stars.
I wouldnt care, i didnt like it anyway.
I wouldn’t pay money to get the same game I already own on another platform.
If it would be a completely new Super Mario Galaxy, then yes.
that sucks. they should try to make a sunshine for 3ds
I love that they DO this stuff behind the scenes and find out what parts of a game would or wouldn’t work before putting it out at retail
Knowing this, I can already see that if they released Galaxy 2 on the 3DS, of course it would sell well, but reviewers would use it to bolster the idea that Nintendo just reuses their old games too often (especially after Ocarina and Starfox), in addition to complaining about the things that make it not work on the system, rather than pointing out the good.
Oh man, I sure do love remakes! Screw those people that want a new game! I love Ocarina of time, I sure want that game on the 3DS! A 13 year old game being used as a main product for a new system…nothing wrong with that, right?! It’s totally not like OoT has been remade/resold repeatedly!
…You seriously don’t see the problem? Remakes should be treated as something extra, not as a main appeal for selling your system.
You obviously didn’t read Guardian Hero’s post. His point was it’s great Nintendo considers what works best on a platform rather than simply copy and paste what’s successful without a second thought.
I have it on Wii. There would be no point in buying it on 3DS.
I’d have though Mario Sunshine would have been the same problem, probably Mario 64 too. They all have lots of zoomed out bits that wouldn’t work on a handheld screen
But they made Mario 64 on the original DS, so I think it should be a bit easier for them to make.
Mario 64 is on a handheld..the ds… Worked out fine for me…
It was remade, so the camera was probably changed.
they have made 3d land why not use same character models
its not the graphics its how you would play the game.. i swear does anyone even read the articles before they comment? -_-
Why would they try to port 2 before 1 haven’t played galaxy but I rather have Sunshine with voice acting.
64 was released on the DS and that was just fine. I would LOVE to see Sunshine on the 3DS.
Yeah shadow mario was cool with that paintbrush.
I would rather a new Mario Galaxy build for the 3DS instead of a port that was designed for another system. Maybe the ideas they couldn’t get into SMG2 can go into a spin-off game for the 3DS.
Agree there enough ports already for 3ds.
Luigi needs his own game do Luigi Galaxy or Luigi Sunshine or Super Luigi Land.
He already has a mansion.
“several… new mansions” – Reggie
Its cool SM3DL is good enough…………..for now
The New Paper Luigi Bros. Sunshine Galaxy World 64.
You missed “3D”
And “Mega ultra hyper championship edition 4000”
This wasn’t about playing Galaxy 2 on the 3DS, it was about the development process of Super Mario 3D Land. Read the actual meat of the text instead of just making a headline out of context. They were seeing what a 3D Mario adventure would look like on a small screen like the 3DS, so they put Super Mario Galaxy 2 on the smallest screen they could think of.
In other words, they were seeing how they could make the experience better, not if they could make Galaxy 2 on the 3DS.
Nintendo should give us sunshine for the 3DS. otherwise they break their tradition of portables having a port of the main Mario game that came out with the previous console
Nintendo: “We were thinking about delivering another remake but ughhh we had to make a game.”
Why didn’t they wait to remake Super Mario 64 for the 3DS instead of the DS? Damn! It would have been sooo much better
true.mario 64 was the best game ever made for mario series and the world.(ocarina of time was the best game ever) and nintendo cant remake that.but if they put another 50 stages for the game or 100 then yes
or no i dont know i have the game
a super luigi world lolz.
They didn’t put it on the 3DS, they put it on a small TV.
And I don’t think Nintendo got the right conclusion. All they had to do was zoom in closer to Mario, that’s all :P Give me SMG3 for the Wii U and I’ll be set for life :D Well, for a month or two that is.
ANYONE INTERESTED IN BUYING MARIO 3D LAND PAL (CHEAP) —> http://tiny.cc/tz9lp
This headline should read, Nintendo displayed Super Mario Galaxy 2 on a small TV monitor.
No. No, it shouldn’t.
I’d rather have Super Mario Sunshine, but if this came out then I’d probably buy it at some point; wouldn’t be top of my list or even close though.
I wouldn’t like to have a remake of Super Mario Sunshine, I loved the game, but I’m tired of gettin so many remakes, I’d rather have a so-so new Mario game then playing always the same game on a different console.
But hey, when it comes down to updating graphics of a great classic I’m good with it. I like how they remade Ocarina of Time, and I like how they remade the NES Mario’s in 16 bit with Super Mario All Stars, but I didn’t like when they made Mario 64 for DS, I never actually got to finish it, when I have completed the original quite a few times
super mario galaxy should stay on the wii and mario galaxy is my favoirte mario type of game and it shouldn’t be ruined by making it portable and small
I would more prefer a new title – much like Super Mario 3D Land, however going back to the fun times of Super Mario 64 and Sunshine. The Galaxy series disappointed me, though the second has an obvious boost over the first.
No point in doing that now. Better to make a new game than port.
Yeah it would be more worth while making a new game for the 3DS and focusing on the new main 3D Mario for the Wii U instead of importing more onto the 3DS, especially since MG2 is quite new and a great game to play on the Wii.
If they’r gunna import anything onto the 3DS it’s gotta be Majora’s Mask! :D
