Super Mario Universe by LuigiL Super Mario Universe by LuigiL
If I could make the next Mario game...I would definitely bring back what was awesome about Super Mario 64.

I imagine a more open world Mario game. I understand that Nintendo wanted to go back to it's roots and bring us some old school Mario, but when I first played Super Mario 64 it changed my life.

The idea that Mario could explore a 3D environment was mind blowing! I hope that future Mario games bring back that open world exploration with HUGE levels!

Anyway, I hope you like my take on the next Mario game! :D


Wow this appeared on Kotaku :D

The artwork is beautiful. Love the bright colors. Love your design for Mario as well. Great job!

On the idea that the artwork is representing, I never understood why Nintendo left that "huge 3D levels" behind. It had so much potential. Take a look at Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie and Donkey Kong 64 for reference. Rare took what SM64 started and expanded upon it greatly. I would love for Nintendo to go back to that untapped potential of a 3D Mario game with huge worlds.

Your description is completely right! :D 
I just wish they'd make another game like mario 64 was. I mean the whole concept just kind of faded? I'm not sure.
While mario galaxy was AMAZING it didn't feel as welcoming and cozy as Mario 64. :)

wow... very nice! Frankly, I've never been too big on Mario games, since I fucking SUCK at them... but I still kind of like them. I absolutely love open-world games because they really encourage you to explore. It's reasons like this for which I love, for example, Majora's Mask (3D) and Wind Waker (HD). I do think we could use more open-world Mario games.

Oh I loved the open world of Mario 64!  I really do wish they could bring it back.  Honestly Bob-omb Battlefield was a master stroke.  For the first few stars you explore the ground and get to know the terrain.  Then after you get the wing hat you come back and are flying over the same place you have crossed on foot.  That blew me away back when that was new.  I could spend so much time just flying around that level.  It drove my brothers nuts because I didn't accomplish anything.

I agree, I miss the open exploration and adjustable camera. I'm sick of the 2d Mario games, and I'm getting tired of the fixed camera angle platformers where you're limited to just blasting onto spherical structures in space.
