Or the Delfino flustered mutter
The biggest dumbest grin across my face at the new perfect mario. I imagine it in my head with long travel sequences between mini-overworlds to mask loading.
I mean the entire video is just
Nintendo literally depicts internet pedophiles preying on Bowser Jr. as Boos
parental controls have to be demonstrated by bowser, because he is the only person in the mushroom kingdom who has ever fucked successfully
how racist is this game gonna be
this is nintendo could you ever imagine it another way
this looks so weird and joyful and good holy shit
Mario parkours around ersatz NYC. Mario runs across a path of flowers through the sky in a redwood forest (!!). Mario THROWS HIS OWN HAT LIKE A BOOMERANG and USES IT LIKE A PLATFORM am i dreaming, has Nintendo been studying my Mario Dreams™

This game seems like the least stylistically consistent Nintendo has ever made. The different worlds have nothing to do with each other nor with traditional Mario elements. And slapping Mario’s cartoony figure into a world like that sucks it of any atmosphere it might’ve had and just leaves an aftertaste of meaningless “weird”.
It certainly confuses me!
Nintendo also seems real into super-saturated teal and magenta right now. The color palettes of ARMS, Splatoon, Mario’s Mexico world are pretty ouch right now
The house style as of Wii U was rather pleasant (primary colors + white rim lighting + strong orange/pink/blue colored lighting) and it looks like they’re changing it up in a direction I don’t like as much.
What are these pink triangles Mario is collecting instead of coins
Replace Mario and this would be indistinguishable from any of those knock-off platformers starring Bubsy K. Ratchicoot
oof, that’s harsh
I’m hoping it’s easier on the eyes when you’re spending 5-minutes+ on each art style rather than cutting between them, but yeah. The reveal of New Donk city had me hoping I’d see a '90s New York film-set look (Ninja Turtles, Last Action Hero) but it’s so sunny and flat and vague when we’re not looking at the great taxicab model.
I welcome a Mario game that appears as stylistically weird as Brawl’s Space Emissary cutscenes but (hopefully) without the actual terribleness of Space Emissary mode
I’d totally approve of New Donk City if it was a super-secret level in Mario 3d World you had to perform a La-Mulana style puzzle to reach
