Mobius isn't a place and if there is already precedent for Mario being in actual cities way before Sonic Adventure was a thing, it's hardly a knock off.

Mobius is realm/ dimension of anamorphic creatures battling Dr. Robotnik/ Eggman. Even the new Sonic movie showed there are other realms, Mobius is one of them.

Mobius is a name the localization team for the original genesis game came up with for what was called earth for a while during the early to mid 2000s and is now called "sonic's world" by sega mandate nowadays.

Ah but the first Sonic game was 1991, and SEGA was competing with Nintendo and the Mushroom Kingdom, so Sonic instead of Mario and Mobius instead of Mushroom Kingdom. In fact, the Archie Comics and the TV Series made it clear Mobius was a different Earth or dimension, with the Adventure/ Human world being elsewhere. The Sonic The Hedgehog 2020 film, Sonic 1996 film, Sonic X, and other games made it clear our earth is different from Mobius. Hence why stages are called Zones, like Mushroom Zone, which is another realm/ dimension/ world as seen in the new movie.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret.

The cartoons, comics and movies all exist within their own continuities and are completely irrelevant to the games.

I always feel the New Donk is both a surprise factor and adds diversity to the types of species Mario encounters in his travels. Nintendo did plan more humans more in style with Mario but I think they really liked the juxtaposition of Mario and the realistic humans a lot, and I think it worked so well because people remember New Donk City a lot from both the trailer and playing the game.

I still like an idea of Metro style levels translated into a 2D Mario platformer in a similar way Kirby Planet Robobot did it.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 isn't a bad game by any means. It's just painfully standard for a game for its time. I still think it took what made New Super Mario Bros. games better than the classics and ran with it, but we expected a lot more, especially when New Super Mario Bros. was done TWICE already and not too long ago at the time.

The worst thing about it is its absolutely repulsive soundtrack that would be improved if it introduced a graceful, pirouetting jackhammer to your skull.

I actually like the music, that’s an unpopular opinion.
