I got the game today and let me just say that I'm digging the Best Fitness Friends.

While others may have collected them first, I'm still the first person to edit the wiki on a daily basis to leave a comment on that TSR page
(Darn this hectic period of "have to go back to college for the new semester tomorrow...")

Overly-narrow superlative, I know, but I'm petty when I want to be.

When the BJJ sprites are collected, I'll add them to the wiki, as I did with MQTSFB.

I find it interesting they felt the need to redraw Fawful's teeth.



Actually, a lot of the new shading looks vastly different from that of the reused sprites.
I imagine that in the case of the inside Bowser enemies, this is done due to lighting and/or to make them look more unicellular, but that doesn't cover everything.

And what's with the weird angle Sniffle Thwomp's in?

Well, Fawful's teeth were more prominent in BIS than in SSS, and it did seem like the SSS remake was paying homage to the earlier Fawful design (not just the obvious like his outfit) so it makes sense he'd be styled differently here.

Not sure about the Sniffle Thwomp, that is a bit odd. Though IIRC it's the first time a Thwomp appeared as an an enemy in the 3DS M&L style so idk.

It's not like it's a huge difference, they just changed the colour and perspective.

The angle is just weird.
Technically a Thwomp appears in the Junker fight, but not a Fish Bone anymore.

The sprites are the most worthwhile parts of the game. They will come in handy for sprite comics. I wish people made Waluigi and Wario in that style, though.

I am going to keep this quote for posterity, given who's saying it.

While it's great they wanted to remake the game they got the most praise in, I felt like remaking games that were more flawed makes a better project than attempting to capture lightning in a bottle twice with a game that didn't need one.

Yes, but even if it's improved, very few people will buy a remake of Bubsy 3D or Sonic '06. Even if it's so improved it's actually enjoyable.

https://www.gameinformer.com/interview/2019/01/14/alphadream-on-remaking-bowsers-inside-story-and-how-mario-luigi-could-possibly

interesting they specifically point out fawful is popular with "oversea fans"

Not surprising, the majority of the fanbase for this series is overseas. In fact Fawful's entire shtick of engrish nonsense is entirely english region based.

Anyway I'm hope they are done with remakes after this one. I want a reason to actually give a *bleep* about this series again.

Yes, but even if it's improved, very few people will buy a remake of Bubsy 3D or Sonic '06. Even if it's so improved it's actually enjoyable.

Yes but partners in time isn't terrible. At worst it had lukewarm reception.

With how the series sales keep declining I see a possible future in mobile games.

And not the good kind.

Well, to be fair, Paper Jam was the worst-received game in the series, and the remakes were released well after the Switch's release, so I wouldn't call that a reliable sample.  The other four games in the series all sold pretty well, anyway.  Stick one on Switch and it'll sell like hotcakes.

Even then, DT only sold half as well as BiS did. I feel like it's just diminishing returns at this point.

You can only keep making the same style of game for so long before people get sick of it.

I don't remember all that much of Paper Jam because it was forgettable so I may well be wrong, but doesn't Paper Petey come after that part?
