This is something that many gamers like myself have suspected for a while now, but New Super Mario Bros. U producer Takeshi Tezuka has just confirmed that the New Super Mario team wants to put as little change and innovation into their games as possible. This officially makes the New Super Mario Bros. series the new Call of Duty.

“We know that there are all types of Mario games” says the producer. “So for us, with the New Super Mario Bros series, we don’t really need to mess with it. This is what people want. Peach will be kidnapped by Bowser, and Mario will move from left to right. This is what people want.”

Yep. This is what people want, alright. People want the exact same game we’ve been playing for the last few years. Forget innovation or new, interesting ideas. We don’t want things like that in our games. Am I right!?
