I hope this entry is promising and doesn't suffer from "New Super Mario Bros." syndrome. But from what I see from the trailer, it looks great. I'm so happy Nabbit, Diddy Kong, Jet, Rouge, and Zazz are playable. Finally, some new characters added to the mix so it doesn't become stale. If Zazz is playable, then I would be so happy to play as him with his lanky and crazy personality (almost reminds me of Waluigi and Dr. Nefarious). Anyway, I'm just surprised as to how the Sochi game didn't do this sooner. I hope they add more content. :)

It looked more like Zazz being a boss, since they would balance it by adding 4 characters, but if that's the case, I expect Rosalina playable.
I hope he's playable, he's my favourite Zeti.

SEGA has the Olympic license, not Nintendo.
SEGA also develops the game, all Nintendo does is publish it.

Olympic people (and Smash Bros. people), honestly, out of all the game companies to carry your good name, you had to choose *Hurk*...ugh.

I can't say I'm into the series, but if this one has something that makes it a must-buy(which there probably won't), I'll get it. But like Dreamy said, I hope to see something that breaks the New Super Mario Bros. syndrome. Zazz is also cool to see, lets us know Sega doesn't forget it's games (ok they can forget Boom).

I've got a better idea: Have the entire universe have the fear of that game drilled into their skulls. Nope, we shouldn't even be having this discussion to save the lucky few who don't know the pain.

If only the game didn't reek of such -a branding, I'd be fine (Like, what if it was a competition between Mario & Crew and the bad guys, or something else like that, or a "Mario-only mode"), but I'm stuck here, divided, with increasing levels of game contamination, with nothing else to do about it, except privately boycott and wash my mouth with Banana and Starbit flavored mouthwash. :(

What's with you and SEGA?
This series would not exist without SEGA.
Mario would have never been at the Olympics.

Oh, too many reasons (and bad games) to count, Sir Luma Party, way too many; including barring me from this new game, for one!  >:(
"Mario would have never been at the Olympics." Why wouldn't he?

Mario & Sonic, not Mario and Sonic, Luma Party. Fix the title (and topic title).

It's a possibility that this game will have online, but if it does, I hope it will be expanded upon. Sochi 2014 had like four multiplayer events for online.
