One of the major themes of the Direct was that Nintendo seems to be really doubling down on Super Mario right now, which makes sense given how much a hit the animated movie was earlier this year. Between this, Super Mario RPG remake, Super Mario Bros. Wonder, Princess Peach: Showtime, Mario vs. Donkey Kong, and some updates to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, if you’re a fan of the Italian plumber who jumps a lot, you’re eating pretty well right now. I’m usually a casual Mario fan, but The Thousand Year Door is one of my favorite interpretations of the series’ world and mechanics. So I’m looking forward to jumping into the game again for the first time in almost 20 years.
