Along with a New Super Mario Bros. entry for Wii, this was the other title rumored to be announced at E3. Instead of one, we now get both, which is much better for everyone involved. This is the first ever that there have been two 3D Mario titles on the same platform.
Graphically, it looks stunning as expected. Yoshi was featured in much of the trailer, which also showed off Mario’s Bee Suit, some sidescrolling portions, massive boss battles, and lots of screen time spent on frozen locales, including one where Mario rolled around a giant snowball.
