Hello everyone !
I’ve seen several doubts about the fact that if Daisy is in SMR, we would reach our third and last goal. What I can tell you is yes and no.
Yes because SMR is not a classic spinoff and is even considered as a main game by Nintendo of Japan.
No because it is considered as a main game ONLY by NOJ, and we can note that SMM is there too considered as a main game, but we all know that it is not the case.
BUT SMR would allow us to reach the « more Mario games » part of our wishes. We would need to wait what role Daisy would fill and what would be her specific power, let’s hope that in both of the cases she will be differentiated from Peach.
And don’t forget that in our aims, we say more Mario gameS and Super Mario gameS meaning that when (not if) Daisy will be in a main game, we won’t stop our activity, but we’ll provide all the support we can to allow Daisy to stay on the top of the pyramid. And don’t forget that we have several secondary aims such as the amiibo compatibility in MK8DX, get a Pacific Jakks figure or give her support for a potential next Smash game for example.
A Nintendo Direct is anounced for the 13th of September so I doubt that if an update has to come in SMR it won't be anounced tomorrow. And more news about SMO!
I personally think this would partially reach our full goal. Because we ALSO want her to have a good role in a maingame, and she still has yet to be in any RPGs as herself. I think a real supporting role in a maingame should be a good aim as well. And I don't know if Smash is one of our aims but she would be in MORE GAMES if that will be the case. And not only that SMR would not be considered a relevant mainstory game even though it is a Super Mario franchise game, I would prefer something on real Nintendo Systems
I know we can achieve our goals! We just have to give it all we've got! Even when we achieve our goals (It HAS to happen!), we should stay around for "maintenance", just to make sure she'll stay in main games. And of course, we have several secondary goals that won't achieve themselves! :D
The rumor suggests that the SMR update will be revealed tomorrow to coincide with Apple's iPhone event tomorrow. The upcoming Nintendo Direct is focusing on Switch and 3DS games so Super Mario Run's supposed update most likely wouldn't be mentioned there.
The rumor said that the new SMR mode may possibly be shown at the Apple iPhone event, and it wasn't shown there from what I know. But it's still possible for this mode to exist and Nintendo may be waiting to reveal it at a later time. Probably not in the Nintendo Direct though since it's focusing on 3DS and Switch games. But of course there's the still chance that this rumor is fake.
I totally understand why they feel that way, it would be a bit odd for Daisy to be a damsel in distress again when she's said to pretty much be the tougher princess.
Assuming that this rumor is true, there's the possibility that Daisy may become playable after she's rescued like with Peach. The original author of the rumor says that they didn't get far enough to rescue Daisy. It also doesn't help that there are no leaked images or videos of the rumor.
But if this rumor is actually real, Nintendo will probably reveal it within the next few weeks or so.
I don't really know what to think right now. On one hand, it could simply be revealed today (despite the direct being mainly focused on 3DS and Switch games), but on the other hand, we simply could've been wrong to get our hopes up...
