Set for release on November 13th, is Nintendo’s long-awaited Super Mario 3D Land for the 3DS. This game “might best be described as a hybrid of New Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Galaxy; while you have freedom to move around in 3-D space, the levels are laid out in a linear fashion and you often view the action from the side.” Product page.

While some levels take a more non-linear approach and play with the camera angles, this happens gradually as you play through the game; clearly, Nintendo is trying to ease the casual players into the more complicated gameplay styles.
