In terms of story i do have to admit the story it IS getting a bit repetitive, while i liked that the koopalings returned, it is getting old to see them in each new mario game, i think a new villain will actually be a pretty cool change of pace, also i"ll like to mention i think it was pretty cool how in New Super Mario Bros U you dont start at peach"s castle, a nice change.

I think 2D mario is just fine right now, while changes may be welcome things are still ok right now.
