i think the internet abandoned trying to be funny a very long time ago
The thing is, this is worse than not funny. This is cruel. If you've been waiting for this kind of game, even if you know the date, your first reaction will be joy. Then disappointment. So, no thanks.

This. It is BS that they didn't even put Super Mario Galaxy 2 in this collection. Why would they do that for? Are they hoping to make it DLC or to remake it?
They felt it was unnecessary cause Mario 64 and Sunshine didn't get sequels... it's a weird perfectionist/imperfectionist thing that I don't know how to describe lol. They are definitely not making it DLC or remaking it... 0 chance of DLC considering you can't even buy the collection anymore.

But we're all old (I'm assuming). If you're a young kid who doesn't even know what Mario 64 is and you get this collection then it's great. I was that demographic for the original All-Stars... well then again, that compilation had great effort put into it. It's just amazing how much more they tried in a more technologically-deficient age. I'm gonna cut myself off here before I start getting nostalgic over the '90s lol.

hump? you people disappoint me
What?

I kinda wish Nintendo would remake Super Mario 3D Land for the Switch... maybe add Peach, Toad, and Rosalina as playable characters since they already have the models and everything from Super Mario 3D World.

Still up Peach's dress.
So Super Mario-Kun finally got it's first official English speaking release in the form of "Super Mario Manga Mania", and I decided to treat myself by picking it up.

It's a gag manga full of silly puns and jokes and Mario/Luigi/Yoshi/Toad...heck, even Peach at one point getting absolutely brutalised against bad guys until the eventually win, with scenarios based on all of Mario's past adventures.

That got me curious, and low behold, yes...Wario's Woods got an adaption. Sadly(but understandably) that isn't part of this initial manga release which is a collection of chapters from across plenty of adventures, but found this on the blog of warelander warelander (who I hope doesn't mind me sharing these pics from their blog found here):

Yes, you saw correctly!
Toad just summoned a sword with heroic willpower to defeat DEATH ITSELF (okay it's Seizer from Wario's Woods NES, but he's basically the Grim Reaper).

Someone send this to Sakurai, quickly. Toad is officially a swordsman, now there's no excuse now for him not to be in the fighter pass vol 2, Sakurai.

I don't mind at all, I share this stuff so as many as possible can see it!

My favorite part of the whole adaption and it's very much made to be Toad's big moment of heroism, overcoming his fears and saving everyone. It's so good.

hey treasure tracker is the 31st best selling switch game. not bad
I saw Super Mario 3D World made it to 16th too.

Helps get him some attention at least.

Sequel when though?
Given the fact that Bowser's Fury happened, I could actually see a Treasure Tracker 2 happening in the near future. At least, that's what I'm hoping for.

ok then.

now what?
Will it into existence.

(But genuinely, it's a pretty cool idea.)

I always liked the concept of visiting Mario locales in Captain Toad, since the game occasionally dipped it's toes into the concept.

We had the Donkey Kong classic based level, the 3D World levels of the original and the Odyssey levels for the Switch and 3DS version. Because the gameplay is so vastly opposite between classic Mario gameplay and Captain Toad gameplay it'd allow us to revisit those worlds with fresh eyes and new puzzles.

if you think memes are fun then i can only assume you have never seen anything actually funny in your life and may be incapable of laughing
Let’s not get elitist over comedy, now. Humor is subjective, many people like memes, it’s ok if you don’t but no need to try and make others shut up about them or feel stupid/bad over it.

Some slight Toad related news too today:


mario-kart-tour-8217-s-cat-tour-now-live-features-cat-peach-and-cat-blue-toad-UUI_uRlCFl4.jpg

Cat Toad(and Cat Peach) is back in the spotlight over on Mario Kart Tour. Pull on Pipe 2 for a chance to obtain the cutie.

It ain't much, but it's something!

One other pipe also contains a bunch of rare drivers including Explorer Toadette and Party Time Toad, but be warned this is NOT a spotlight pipe meaning you're not guaranteed to find them even if you empty the dang thing.

I'd suggest just taking the stuff to PM's and invite a Moderator of this forum to discuss it. That way we can get back on-topic and it'll resolve the issue further. :)

-------------

...I legit can't think of much else to say, but damn, Toad has a lot of potential recolors. Whether references to the colors of the various Paper Mario characters or otherwise.

Captain Toad also does too. Though Toadette and Captain Toadette are kind of weird, since unlike Toad and Captain Toad, are literally the same person(so akin to Mario and Dr. Mario), but could arguably have very unique movesets, or you could have Toad with a Toadette alt(new voice clips too of course!), and Captain Toad and Captain Toadette as alts in the same way. Not that either have to be alts either, but they do fit the general costume rules. I'd still prefer all 4 as separate characters, though~

When it comes to Toad alts, people are sleeping on Kinopio-kun
