I know Nintendo loves small rosters in mario games but damn, 4 is just too few for me. Obviously, they'll reveal more until the release, still it won't be as many as I want. Just give me Wario and Waluigi, maaan...

The Gold Edition of the game includes:
  • The base game
  • The season pass which contains upcoming DLC packs, including additional story content featuring new heroes, quests, and battles.
  • Also includes the Galactic Prestige Pack, with three exclusive and supremely stylish weapon skins for your team, unlockable right away. Save the galaxy, but do it with pizzazz!

Really looking forward to seeing the changes to the overworld gameplay. The first game was brilliant on the combat side (on the easy side for the main campaign but the optional missions could get tough) so I'm less worried there, but the style of gameplay for the overworld seems to have been completely overhauled and I'm curious how it'll end up playing out.

The screenshots certainly look very promising though, I think it'll be a fun world to poke around in

While Ubisoft's business practices are typically scummy, the first game's Donkey Kong DLC means that this doesn't seem as bad to me as it would otherwise (kinda like how Monolith's earned a similar level of leeway from me thanks to Torna)

We got DK for the new story mode lasts time. Let’s take some guesses for this versions tangentially associated character:

I think this is the mode that will have Wario and Rabbid Waluigi

Donkey Kong...IN SPAAACE

I think Rabbid Wario and Waluigi will return as villains (maybe even recurring villains) in this game

First Nintendo leaks fhe existence of this game and now Ubisoft leaks their own release date of it lol.

I quite liked the first game, so I am planning on getting this in due time. Still haven't played the DLC of the first game though, not sure if I should do that first? Regardless this game/series will always have a special place in my heart either way because 1) everyone thought it's a terrible idea when it first leaked but in came Ubisoft and circumvented everyone's expectations 2) Mr. "I cry because my role model Miyamoto is advertising my Mario Game on stage right now"-game director still gives me back my hope in humanity whenever I watch it. There's someone who loves what he's doing.

I actually thought some of those later levels were pretty challenging in the main campaign!

Now that you mention it, yeah the last two worlds had some meaty challenges for sure

Hoping we get a similar level of challenge here, and there's a lot of ways you can implement some backbreaking optional challenges into a more open setting like this

I’m surprised they (at least from what we’ve seen I think) don’t seem to be messing around with gravity at all, given the Mario Galaxy link
 
Bowser has a gun. My life is complete. Never knew it was something I wanted.

Real talk: Do we think bowser tries shooting mario early in the game with his gun?
 
I want to know about the towns. Will we get quests now from NPCs?? Also will it be more RPG than the previous game. Oh man I’m too excited. 2022 is one of the best years for Switch

The first game was absolutely phenomenal as well as the DLC. October 20th is a perfect release for this game. Can't wait!
