During today’s reveal trailer for the Nintendo NX, now called Switch, a new game that has never been seen before was revealed. That game is, in fact, a new Mario game. Not a lot of details have been shown at this time. We don’t know a name for the game, we don’t know if it will be a launch title for Switch. We don’t know if Luigi will be in the game, officially. That doesn’t mean we can’t speculate.

So what exactly did the trailer show about the game during it’s stealth reveal? Not a lot really. It does appear to have a camera angle more along the lines of a game like Super Mario Galaxy. It does appear to take place on worlds similar in layout to something like Super Mario 3D World, but it appears that the camera is closer and more directly behind Mario’s back like his Wii counterpart than in that game that was released on Wii U. It appears that there is at least one area that is themed like a Wild West, or Mexican style of town. You can see one enemy jumping around in the bottom right corner of the screen that appears to be wearing a sombrero. Whether that’s a Snifit, or a Shy Guy, or something else was a little hard to tell. The color palette of that area is very vibrant.
