Super Mario 64 DS Confirmed for launch and official boxart...
« on: October 04, 2004, 04:38:20 PM »
I just read that Gamestop's online page has updated it's Super Mario 64 DS boxart for the game, it looks just like the Spiderman boxart as far as how the box is.  The art itself is much better though.  Since Spiderman is a launch title, and it's boxart has been shown, you could then assume that Super Mario 64 DS is confirmed as a launch title as well.    Super Mario 64 Boxart!

The fact that DS games look like they will use the same boxes manufactured for gba games has a significant pro and con in my opinion.  First the average shmoe may not even notice that these boxes are actually for a new console, especially if they're placed right next to gba in the stores.  If he does notice they're for a new console, he may not know what the DS actually is and put it off as just another gameboy.  However, since Nintendo will be using the same boxes, they will be saving money and they will not have to worry about shortages.

EDIT: they also have the boxart for Mario Power Tennis for GC. Mario Power Tennis

Just one small problem... Nintendo's long stated that the title is "Super Mario 64x4".

I just don't like these DS boxes. They look to Gameboy-like, and goes against Nintendo's "third pillar" stance.

true, but changing the names of titles happens alot, close to release too, especially for launch games.  I remember hearing about the official titles for Mario Kart Double Dash, Mario Golf Toadstool Tour, and now Mario Power Tennis only right when their boxart was shown.

Um, the cases are like miniature DVD cases, and look nothing like GBA cases at all... -___-

Guys, do you not remember what the DS game card boxes are shaped like as of E3?  Look in here if you don't remember:

So, the're GameBoy sized, but actually a DVD style case.  I hope they come with small cases like the Panasonic SD cards do.  It would make things much easier for travel...

$49.99 GOOD LORD THATS A LOT A MONEY!!!!!!! (for a DS game that is)

I seriously hope that is only an estimate in price and games are no more than $27.99 - $34.99
which would in turn make GBA games drop to $14.99 - $24.99 depending on the game.

Well given the fact that no official luanch detials, or any detials concerning game pricing, you can rest assured that it is an estimate.

Yes, the prices are just place holders for when the info is actually announced most likely on the 7th.  Even if you did pay in full at these estimate amounts, you will have  have extra balance to put towards something else.

well there's only three days until we find out for sure if all these rumors are true.  I do hope that the box size shrinks.  I also hope the games have their own cases like gameboy games did.

Super Mario 64 DS has to be the most ridiculous title ever, but somehow I get the feeling that's probably final.

Ah, okay. I'd never seen those pictures before. So they're probably about the size of CD cases, then, only a bit thicker.

Interesting...

I wonder how accurate the describtion of the game is.

I hope that the singular player game doesn't have to be played with all 4 characters.  I would love to have just a portable Super Mario 64.  Or atleast the option to play the original Mario 64.

I would also like that something new with the 4 characters, but I don't want that more than the original.  

At least the idea of the 4-Player game is going to rock.  

I can't wait for this game.

Is anyone else not seeing boxart?

Awful

If that isn't just a GameStop mock-up, someone at NoA is getting shot.

That's not what I saw when I clicked the link yesterday. Rest assured, whatever's there right now is not the boxart.

Dude, if showing the boxart, then having it removed doesn't confirm it as a launch title, I don't know what does.  Gamestop probably got the info in along with the picture to post, did so, and then got asked to remove it until Thursday.  It makes perfect sense, if the box didn't look official enough as it was.  (I'm sorry, but I dare somebody to actually create a mock image like that without the proper resources...)  Good times, good times.

Yeah, that's not what was up the other day.

This new one is just the "placeholder" image they look to have for all of their DS preorders. Just the logo from an old game in the series (their "Mario Kart DS" one even says "Super Circuit"), with a DS logo stuck on the top, and an "RP" ratings logo photoshopped into the corner.

Yesterday thay had a much better image (although still not exactly an awesome one) with an actual "Super Mario 64 DS" logo on it (which isn't exactly a term that's been used for this game before now), and Mario, Luigi, Wario and Yoshi (?) all standing in a pose, ready for battle, as if they thought they were on the cover of a Mario Party game or something (the exact pose looked new to me). There was no cheap "DS" logo tacked onto the top, but it had that white GBA-style curve on the side of the box, which is (or rather, used to be?) visible in that SpiderMan box art thread.

But, for some reason, GameStop pulled the image that they had, and replaced it with this generic "Super Mario 64" placeholder.


Edit: Forgot the spooky emoticons.


Edit#2: Here's the boxart that was on GameStop, for anyone who missed it.

So, I'm wondering what exactly makes up this game.  From what I remember, the E3 demo was simply 4 people in the castle courtyard competing for something.  Now, I'm just guessing here, but since they have chosed to call it Super Mario 64 (x4 or DS) it seems like it will be simply Super Mario 64 in a 4 player cooperative or copetitive mode.

Does anybody else have any more info then just that?

I hiiighly doubt that the Super Mario 64 DS boxart is the final one. It doesn't even have anything other than the logo.. that can't be what Nintendo is going with.
OUT OF DATE.
