I have to be "that guy", but Super Mario World is Part 4. Certainly Nintendo hasn't forgotten that. Not to mention that this seems like Nintendo got this idea from Sega's Sonic experiment, (hopefully) minus the episodes.
Still, a new old-school Mario will likely be fun, and hopefully it will be as innovative and game changing as Part 2 (USA) and 3 were to the first game. I wouldn't even mind a retro 8-bit look to it.

I'd rather see some returning powerups that've been ignored that aren't the Kuribo's Shoe.
Actually, Kubiro's Shoe was a one-off item. Only appeared in one level, and that was it. It's just different and fun, and that's why people are so fond of it.
