Can you imagine: Koopas and Goombas versus the plumber dream team. An enthusiastic "It's a-me, Mario!" followed by a flashbang grenade. Soon after a half-dozen headshots show up on the top-right of the HD television and a meaningful "Chapel cleared" is communicated over the radio.

Nintendo might be convinced that selling multiplatform games that came out a year ago is what will break the ice, but what you see above is a system seller waiting to happen.
