Nah, not good enough. Let's throw Metroid on there after it missed a full console generation.

And Kirby and Yoshi and Pokemon while we're at it, why not.

The console doesn't even have internet features right now and it is still one of the most promising values in gaming. What the hell.

It's actually a pretty huge deviation since there hasn't been a Mario game like that since Sunshine which was like 15 years ago.

That worked out well for the Wii U, didn't it?

I'm not denying that these games will probably be at least good, possibly great, but i can't bring myself to give a poo poo about Mario 23 or whatever enough to buy another Nintendo console.

That was basically a spin off of a 3DS Mario. Not in the same league at all.

Galaxy had a weird level design that was pretty linear despite having a lot of freedom of movement

Not really. Galaxy's levels were all essentially stand-alone platforming tracks and challenges, whereas this is more in the vein of Sunshine and Mario 64 where the levels are more about exploring the terrain and environment instead of just navigating it.

Galaxy was saying "here's this specific challenge we've engineered for you to do go. Get to the end" whereas this is more like "Go to this big, open, interesting area and figure out how to accomplish a certain thing." Both approaches are of course valid but between the Galaxy games and then the Mario 3d World games we've pretty much had 15 years of iterations on the same design philosophy.
