Of course Mario prefers Pauline.

He strongly believes in rights of the vox populi, Princess

Given the levels are all supposed to be pretty big, I don't mind this. Besides, the last Mario game I didn't eventually max out the life counter on was...SMB2.

Lives are useful in the crazy multiplayer games because you need SOMETHING to kick you out of the level if you suck too hard, but single player they are pretty meaningless.

I'll miss the 1UP iconography, though.

On another note, is anyone else seriously hoping they do for Sarasaland what they did for Big Ape City here?

Anyone else notice the Classic DK cabinet art Pauline as part of NDC's graffiti?

So many memes about shirtless Mario. Nintendo broke the internet.

Lives are good in Mario.

Lives are what you get when you get 100 of a thing. Lives are why you want to chase down a Green Mushroom.

Lives are good.

The sick music that sounded like some OG Japanese fusion jazz near the end of the trailer got me more hyped than anything else.

SO HYPED DANGIE!

Have you not heard One Up Girl before? They debuted it at E3, and I'm not a huuuuuuuuuuuge fan of it, feels sort of like knockoff Katamari, but it's cool.

I assume he's referring to the more drum-and-bass styled thing with the Hammond organ sound. It was also at E3 but you basically never heard it except between Treehouse presentation bits. The one that sounds like Sonic music with some MM2 and Order of Ecclesia touches.

Funniest thing about the Sonic-ish styling: this is the song for the planet wisp stage
