"Playable Daisy" doesn't begin to describe this. The art style, the imagination, the simple fact that it's not NSMB...Tears of the Kingdom was NOT the last big Switch game! This is exactly the right game for this year, given the movie's success. Underestimate 2D Mario at your own risk.

Didn't know I needed Elephant Mario in my life until now.

Nintendo is really embracing the shroom aspect of Mario. Bring on the acid trip!

This just doesn't grab me like a 3D Mario does... I guess it's because I've played so many variations of 2D Mario in the Mario Maker games. But I'm happy to see playable Daisy. I don't know why it hasn't happened sooner.

I'll probably end up getting it, though. It's probably pretty fun and good for a game-playing family.

Beautiful art style!! Can't wait to play with my partner, 2D co-op is one of our favourites.

Love how Animated the characters looks when they run and jump, the only turn off for me is that me music is still the 'buh buh' sound NSMB had

Also, the fact a new 2D Mario and 2D Sonic are coming out within months of each other makes me very happy
