Concluding our (first) Super Mario marathon, Leon, Darren Gargette and James attempt to resolve the quandary that is the (not so) New Super Mario Bros. series. From 2006 DS debut to 2013’s premium Luigi-themed dlc, we attempt to decipher whether the NSMB games are worthy heirs to the 2D Mario Mushroom Kingdom throne or simply tired rehashes of an aged formula.
Music used in this issue:
1: Mushroom Waltz from New Super Mario Bros. by Asuka Ota, Hajime Wakai and Koji Kondo
2: Swimming (Baby Yoshi Singing) from New Super Mario Bros. U by Koji Kondo, arrangement by Shiho Fujii and Mahito Yokota
