Do the Mario in Just Dance 3

The dance genre has a new star, a certain red overalls-clad plumber.

Mario is a man of many talents. He can drive a mean go-kart. He is pretty good at whatever ball or puck you throw at him. Mario is a damn good doctor, and he can even settle heavyweight disputes as a boxing referee. But his dancing skills were in dispute, considering "Captain" Lou Albano didn't exactly stick the landing in closing credits of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! Well, now you can finally make that little Italian dance like the champ he is in Ubisoft's Just Dance 3 for the Wii. The "Mario" song will be available for download for 250 Wii points starting on December 14th.


At first, I wasn't sure what to expect from this smashup of videogame character and dance game. But once I saw the video above, I had no idea just how crazy it was going to be. Mario dancing around in an even more psychedelic version of the Mushroom Kingdom with accurate sound effects and ... does he throw a fireballs at goombas and koopas there at the end?

Ok, this is weird enough to actually be interesting. Now if only I owned Just Dance 3 and could resurrect Funk from exile in China to do his Mario dance for real. Seriously, watch all the way to the end of this video, [http://new.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/the-escapist-presents/1724-Office-Mario-Party] you won't be disappointed.

Yeah Lou couldn't dance, but the song was catchy.

OT: Someone's been hittin the shrooms, but I'd like this game more if the player actually did use their feet. I've seen people play Just Dance only waving their arms and still hitting all the marks.

I read the title and thought they were going to include the "Do the Mario" song but then I read the article and was kind of sad.

As for the game itself, I could not care less about it.

I laugh when he was under the star influences.

Anyway I think this could of been better if they had a CGI Mario dancing away instead of a guy in a Mario suit, it look so dull!

Wasn't there already a Mario DDR on the Gamecube? No one really seems to talk about it.
There was, and it was well received when it came out too. People just forgot about it though cause it was near impossible to get it when it came out, and is even harder to get it now cause people don't seem to remember that you need to sell the dance mat as well instead of just the game.

That, and it was the easiest game in the series by far. Serious DDR fans don't care, because even the hardest levels aren't really challenging to them.

That being said, I'm not a serious DDR fan, and I loved it.

P.S. Thanks

Personally I thought that was one of the good things about it: because it was easier, it let people who either were new to the series or weren't good at the other games(me by a long shot) play and feel good about themselves for being able to do the harder difficulties on it. Sure it may have been easy for the "DDR champs" but you'd think they'd appreciate a game that would make their hobby more accessible to more people.

Plus you can dance as Bowser! It is impossible to make that not be awesome!
