I died laughing at this pic
Myself, I like the Flying Squirrel suit. But I do wish they'd bring back some classics too.
Really though, wasn't the cape just a rip-off of the raccoon ability, come to think of it?
The boomerang flower is okay because of the fact its based off a older item.
I want the frog back instead of the penguin.
What's wrong with the Ice Flower? It's effective and ineffective on different enemies than the fireflower, so it's got it's own niche.
The boomerang flower? Yeah, I've gotta give you that one, it was way under implemented in 3D land. Now in a 2D game, having a boomerang bro's weapon would work perfectly to complement the hammers.
I just dont like the small niches to powers to make them somewhat unique.
I like origional Fresh and new ideas, not rimixed junk.
The rock suit was a perfect example of new and fresh.
The new suit reminds me too much of tanooki.
And the ice flower was good in mario galaxy. I like the addition of ice balls, but miss the skating ability.
As for skating, just think about how practical that would be in a 2D game requiring underwater segments and get back to me.
And how does that Flying Squirrel suit remind you of the Tanooki suit? They both float, yeah, but only the Tanooki can truely fly, and it has super ground-pound and invincibility abilitys. Flying Squirrel gets the other bonuses I've pointed out earlier. Really, their biggest similarity is that they're both costumes based on small mammals.
That would be a cool idea, but then it wouldn't be like a Mario game really
