There should never be another Mother game unless Shigesato Itoi changed his mind and wants to write one.

Smash DX or whatever will absolutely happen but it's way too soon. No way they'd let it cannibalize the sales or playtime of Splatoon/ARMS/Pokken or even Mario and Xenoblade. If anything, it'd be an announcement for 2018.

Anything from Kamiya will be a blessing so I'm hoping that's true.

Yes in the way that Mario will always be there, and you must have a Rabbid in the party as well.

The scene doesn't play out differently, you just see different characters doing the same motions.

It's weird if you have more than one rabbid in some of the cutscenes because the first one gets the 'wacky' rabbid reaction, and the second one just goes through it's normal emotion reaction loop.

If E3 this year was any indication Nintendo's getting into blase title card or lowkey whatever announcements so I'm sure someone will say some poo poo like "...and these new amiibo will also be compatible with Smash Brothers DX for Nintendo Switch coming next year" and give it no time to sit and move on to like some indie 3DS game.

Oh absolutely. I wasn't saying Smash will never happen, but it seems like they'd rather build the Mario Odyssey Hype train and then drop the Smash bomb a few months before E3 and then they can tease us with more details later on.

They'll probably want a game to launch alongside their paid online service.

Or they can always kick the can down the street and delay paid online again.

I hope they just do a series of individual amiibo announcements that end like this.

Because all fucking hell is going to break loose

I am close to the end of Mario Rabbids and if not for Breath of the Wild it would be my GOTY thus far, which is insane in and of by itself, but the fact it's 2017, the great year of gaming, makes it crazier. Whoever said this has the feel of a Rare game during the N64's heydey is correct. My wife could not give less of a poo poo about strategy games but she's almost as far as I am. Even my 6 year old is having a blast messing around in world 1. It's pretty obvious now how Ubi-soft got the green light from Nintendo.

I really hope we get another one of these. It's a fantastic turn based strategy game full of charm, humor and awesome music. Also, Luigi is a cold-hearted killer. Once leveled up, his Steely Stare lays waste to all. He's like the Winter Soldier in his killing efficiency.

Yeah I hear that. Your phrasing makes me unsure if you're referring to Hitchhiker's because you know that happened a number of years ago. The Artemis Fowl writer Eoin Colfer wrote at least one more book in the series. It was okay, didn't totally capture the tone but it also wasn't as laden with depressive nihilism as Adam's writing.

or that was in which case ignore me

Nah listen to me on Luigi. Steely Stare is the first brain on the descending brain more activity meme. Itchy Feet is where it's at. I have him with itchy feet maxed and movement maxed and pipe exit and jumping range maxed. He can go loving anywhere in the map in one turn and get most of your team close. I beat miniboss challenges in four turns faster than the requirement because I get everyone surrounding it immediately. I beat "get to the goal" challenges in like two turns when it's intended to be five or six. I escort Toad past the enemies and out of range before they spawn.

I'm loving the game as well. I can't help but think about how much cooler it would be if it wasn't a crossover. Like, if there were shyguys and koopas moving at you doing various moves. Don't get too close to one of those warp pipes, there's a piranha plant in one.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the hell out of it. Solid 8/10. But if this had somehow found the way to be 100% Mario +Magic Kingdom it would be 10/10.

Yeah the Rabbid stuff is take-it-or-leave-it to me, but Nintendo wouldn't ever make something like this without Ubisoft, so I guess rabbids are the price you pay.
