Next Mario game will appear on Nintendo's next-gen console

Gamespot just reported that the true sequel to Super Mario 64, rumored to be titled 128 Marios, will be headed to the next-gen system. You can check the interview and report about it here!

If they were smart, Nintendo would bundle it with the revolution; that will surely sell some units!!!

It looks as if the cube is slowly dying. The new Zelda game will surely be the last hurrah from Nintendo, and third party support has already been dwindling. And great third party titles like re4 are too little too late, imo.

If they were even smarter, Nintendo would allow a number of downloads for a limited time immediately following the release of the system. For those looking to get a new system and the ability to play legacy games, this would be a real incentive to early adoption of the system. Sell 1st party titles with a code to download more titles to spare you the cost of the downloads and you have a killer distribution setup for systems and 1st party software.

no if they was really smart they would gain attention to a wider audience by releasing mario 128 with system along with mario kart with system for racing fans, metroid prime for it for fps fans and people who want more audlt like violent gaming. and toss in an online tetris or a pokemon puzzle league update for puzzle fans.


that wpuld make a great set all games online with exception to mario 128 unless they hadd multiplayer to it either the mario kart or pop in supersmash bros :) sell system for 199

AFAIK Nintendo has never bundled their systems with more than a game or two and maybe a fancy controller.

Since the rev will be backwards compatible with most of those games, I think they should make these old classics like mario kart dd online enabled. They owe us that, I think for not doing it the first time around.

And to make sure they were the smartest of all and to ensure they would not go broke giving away all of their software, they would not hire you for their marketing analyst of product and merchandising manager!

Are you kidding? I hope you are...giving away 5 games would be suicide for the company. I can see one and the consumer can decide on which one they get packed in with the system, but not all of them at once! Too costly for Nintendo and not strategically prudent.

Unless the Mario All Stars pack counts, 4 games in that one, later 5 when mario world was added. Besides we all know that the rev will launch with no game bundled then later mario will be bundled with it as it has been & ever will be with nintendo home systems

Pack in new games was such a great idea back in the SNES/Genesis days... it really helped moving systems...

The Mario All Stars pack really sealed the deal for a SNES for me (well I did all ready have a Genesis), and it made me purchase the system even though I probably wouldnt have otherwise.

Sure the development costs of that game are up there, but if its an in house game, it's all the same company, and it plants a large user base at the beginning. Plus if none of the other systems have a pack in game, then it makes it look that much better.

Curse the PSX for killing the era of pack in games... a trend that Nintendo then followed.... :(

Unless the PSX came with a game? I believe at first it only came with a cheesy demo disc... correct me if Im wrong.

Far as I can recall it always only had a demo disc with it, the demo's changed over the years but that was it, it was more sony followin nintendo though really as the n64 had mario bundled eventually. I still recall that t-rex demo with the psx now its almost painfull to think it was state of the art stuff in the day

You're not wrong in thinking that of the PSX. It did not come with a game, but it did come with a demo disc, something that was actually started by Sega with the Saturn. Also, if you really think about it, the highest price a Nintendo system has been released at was the N64 for $250. That is $50 less than the PSX at it's release as well as the PS2. That $50 difference is enough to purchase a game of your choice and Nintendo has routinely kept it's prices closer to $200 rather than $250 for a new system.

Do you really think so? I think its pretty clear thatthe vast majority of the game smarket are people who think gaming didn't exist before the Playstation, and don't really give a crap about 'kiddy mario'.


As for the GC dying, the GC is the only current gen platform that still has big-name titles to be excited about coming out this gen; MS are fairly blatantly shifting their entire focus towards the Xbox 360 (very understandable given the huge losses Xbox is causing them; it is very much in their interest to see the Xbox dead ASAP), and Sony seem to be spending all of their marketing dollars on the PSP at the moment, and pimping PS3 renders to start the hype early.

Nintendos next console likely wont be out until 2007, which is why they are still having AAA GC titles released - although I have noticed the lack of upcoming GBA titles of interest in favour of the DS, which undermines their whole 'DS is not a rival to the GBA, it is a companion' stance.
