    Good to see the Mega Mushroom back! I quite liked just rampaging through levels with it, kicking over absolutely everything, goalpost included. I know it wouldn’t have worked so well in the Wii one, but that still would’ve been hilarious all the same. Friendship-ending, perhaps, but hilarious.

    When he gets shot out of the cannon and goes into that nighttime area, is that a reference to a previous game?

    Fun…still enjoying the first one..I will pick this one up one day.

  • This game better be extra hard, otherwise I believe this game will be ridiculously easy with the extreme spam of coins and this white Tanooki suit :S
