During the much-anticipated reveal of Nintendo's next console, officially named the "Nintendo Switch," two new Mario games were unveiled today.

The first was a Mario Kart game in the style of Mario Kart 8, but with King Boo included as a racer and two item slots instead of one. Two players were shown racing in the "GCN Yoshi Circuit" course.

The second was a 3D platformer with the camera positioned behind Mario. In the footage, Mario showed off his triple jump and long jump abilities, and narrowly avoided a Bullet Bill.

It wasn't mentioned if the Mario games shown were tech demos or previews of actual games, but with the Nintendo Switch releasing in March, there's a good chance we'll find out soon either way.

Hopefully we'll get a Direct for Switch games soon. The 3D Mario game looks extremely interesting (Note that the camera has moved to behind Mario's back and the level appears be explorable) and if this game, Mario Kart (8? 8.1? 10?), and the rumored Super Smash Brothers for Nintendo Switch all are launch titles, this will probably justify a day 1 buy for a lot of people, especially those who felt burned by the Wii U.

Nintendo stated that no further Switch or Switch game details will be announced in 2016.

They also said that the footage may not be in the final game.

A (supposed) leaked image of an internal Switch game list at a German retailer shows several games on the list, including Splatoon, Mario Kart 8, and Dragon Quest X

While I don't think ports are out of the question, I find it laughable that anyone ever thought that they were showing footage of Mario Kart 8 in the original teaser.
I'm a horrible person.

Yeah, those stupid people. Thinking a game with Mario Kart 8's graphics, track, and UI was Mario Kart 8. Dumbheads.

All I'm saying is that the differences sort of tipped me off. I also wrote that shortly after reading an article that outright said it was Mario Kart 8, redefining the similarities to fit some sort of "lol Nintendo Switch is just ports" narrative.

Edit: I wasn't expecting or trying to push buttons with my previous post, but it seems that any time I post here without a paragraph's worth of context, I get on people's nerves, lol. I realize what was meant, I just don't think the level of additions being included in the port (or possibly otherwise) constitute it being classified as the exact same game. Is that naive? Eh, I don't particularly care.

It will be impossible for me to explain what I meant at this point, so I won't. Please, everyone dump on me until my initial post is no longer relevant.
