Conversation: New online 2D Mario is in the works!

Welcome back! It’s another Tuesday, which means tonight is a new episode of the Spot Dodge Podcast exclusively with Destructoid. Topics: The staff is having a discussion tonight Mortal Shell: launch on Switch, Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters coming to many consoles, and new, for talks, 2D mario the game is working.

Zippo announced last August that the new 2D mario the game is in development and it will have an art style that will “wow” people. They also claimed that it will have online multiplayer. Finally, this alleged new 2D mario the game will not be “New Super Mario Bros.” line.

So far, Zippo is back with some new information about the alleged 2D mario game Apparently, Mario, Luigi, Peaches, and Toad are all playable characters, the exact same lineup as Super Mario Bros. 2: for the NES.

One thing is for sure that I am indeed I hope this claim about an art style that will “wow” people is true. We got four main 2D mario games and one major expansion that used “New Super Mario direction, and it was initially sloppy. It’s time to do something new and exciting for 2D mario, and a stylish new art direction is just what the series needs to spice things up. Hell, something fan-made Super Mario Flashback would be nice
