DAILY MANIFESTO

Mario-Strike Is Just What Nintendo Needs

Posted on Sunday, June 24 @ 15:49:52 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack

What you're looking at is no mistake, it's one of the best ideas to ever be conceived.

Nintendo spent over 10 minutes talking about NintendoLand at E3—although it felt like an hour—and while that's all fine and dandy, what about lil Jonny who has grown up and is more interested in bomb defusals and teamwork now? Collecting fire flowers, coins, and stars doesn't cut it anymore. I say make use of that newly-announced Wii U Pro Controller by creating what parents might have a heart-attack over, but gamers will drool over.

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.
