Hi guys! Today I will be sharing my honest opinion about Newer Super Mario Bros Wii. Critism is allowed in the comments if you disagree with any of my thoughts.
____________________________________________________________
Overview
So, this is a really fun game with pretty standard level design and a new interface. Multiple NPCS were added to the game, and some features in Newer pay homage to past games. And there are special worlds too....
Rating
To be honest, this game is one of the best mods I have played in a while. So I will give it a 10/10.
Gameplay
So, here's how Newer plays out. You play a few levels, then fortress. Play a few levels, then ANOTHER fortress. Then, you finally get to the castle. The last 2 worlds are a bit different, but no spoilers ;)
Characters
Nothing special. Mario, Luigi, Yellow Toad, Blue Toad.
Items
Also nothing special, but the hammer from SMB3 makes a comeback and I am happy because of that.
_____________
So yeah! That's what Newer is about, and my basic thoughts on it. I hope you enjoyed it!

The only thing missing from this review is a comment on how *awesome* the "new" puzzles, level design, and themes are! :D What was your favorite theme?

I loved the Bowser's Castle theme! :)

One thing that I like is the way that it had a world style similar to both Super Mario World and New Super Mario Bros U. Instead of having generic camera locks, it's actually just one big open world, and that's a huge thing that I am really interested in. I do wish that the same mindset was incorporated into a level, but Super Mario: Endless Earth seems to do just that, so I'll be looking forward to that. I also like how nice the developers were and made it easier for hackers to hack NSMBW. Take for example, the world map.

In the original game, you had a 3D engine, and it was confusing as hell to design maps for it. The only world which would take model imports was World 9, and that's because it wasn't as complex as the other worlds. Even then, the only hack which took advantage of that was Newer Summer Sun, but that was just a rotating coin model, and only had one stage.
In Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii, however, they introduced a new 2D engine made entirely from scratch. For some reason, all the 3D modelers on the team quit, and this was their last option, but I'm glad they took this route. Sure, it may not look as good as if it were in 3D, but it can surely help those who want to mod the game.

Though, they have made some things that I do wish didn't happen, like ruining translation support for Newer. Thankfully, there was a dedicated team made to translate the game to other languages, and I was even in the team too. But sadly, the team died when RVLution (the main forum for hacking NSMBW) has died. Hopefully they can make a return on [HorizonWii](https://horizonwii.net), but that's one of those things we can only hope. It would have been nice to play the game in my native Canadian language (French), but I guess I'll be using my secondary language. Oh well.

The new themes, though, are extremely creative. I never saw a Japanese town in a Super Mario game, and neither have I seen a bomber land world. Speaking off bombs and attacks, I do extremely appreciate the fact that the hammer suit has been ported over from Super Mario Bros. 3, but I unfortunately got spoiled with Newer DS's version of the game, which combines it with the shell suit. I do wish that in the Deluxe version that will be released soon, they could port the Newer DS version of the powerup.

Overall, I do think that the game **shines** in creativity, and that's what I adore. I might do a full review soon, but I need to find a way to actually play Newer Wii again, because my PC is currently broken and I don't exactly use my wii that much
Old 3DS XL info:
I used to have a 3DSafe A9LH V11.3.0-36U with Luma in my CTRNAND. Since ReiNAND Reibooted and Re-Reileased, I "switch"ed back.
Right now, I have boot9strap with Luma 8.0 as my CFW. Though, I'd like to see other CFW's for B9S.

Wait. I still have all the translation sheets i had saved, so it could be technically possible.
