The people who make Super Mario 3D World want you to know that it's pretty great.
Video games as cinematic blockbusters? Sure. Video games as texts? I've heard that one too.
You are working on a new Super Mario Bros. game. You have a new idea for a Mario power-up, something that could be as delightful as the original fire flower or the invincibility star for Mario to headbutt out of a block and temporarily try on.
As many of you know, the upcoming Super Mario game for the 3DS will be bringing back Mario's iconic Tanooki suit, the raccoon-like outfit that allowed Mario fly in Super Mario Bros. 3. Though the suit has returned, its functions have changed. As it turns out, Mario will not be able to fly this time around.
