New Super Mario Bros...waitaminute, NEW?!

So I was over Rich's house last night, watching WWE Smackdown. Or should I say, we were switching between Smackdown and SpongeBob SquarePants. Anyway, during the commercial break, I saw it; a commercial for the brand new Mario game, New Super Mario Bros.

Whaa...waitasec. New?! Yep, new.

My initial thought was "why call it NEW Super Mario Bros? Especially at this stage?" I mean, they've been making Mario games for the Nintendo line of systems for years and years. Every Mario game that came out after Super Mario 3 had unique names; Super Mario Land, Super Mario All Stars, Super Mario 64, etc. But after checking out, I kind of understand. The NEW Super Mario really isn't NEW in concept. It looks like the initial Mario games, with better graphics and different stages to play through. Also, when you look at it from a marketing standpoint, calling it New Super Mario Bros. is almost guaranteed money in the bank. People are going to be curious, and thus buy.

I will admit, I am curious, too. I tried to talk my son into getting a Nintendo DS instead of a PSP for graduation, so I can see what gameplay is really like, but my son really wants that PSP. Dammit. And since my local Toys R Us has closed down, I'll have to look for a store that has a playable demo. But till then, I guess I'll have to wait to find out what gameplay is like.

What have you guys heard about this game? Is it getting good reviews? Are there any new characters? How about gameplay? And what do you think about Nintendo calling it "NEW Super Mario Bros."? Tell me your thoughts in the comments!
