    In World Flower – 9, if you have the Lucky Cat Suit and go up to the very tall Goomba Tower and transform into a statue, the frame rate will drop as all the Goombas drop down on you.

    That is nice that frame rate is consistent.

    Impressive. Developers should take note. Personally, I have not experience a frame rate drop. Not even in four player co-op. And if I did, it was not noticeable.

      Seriously, we barely get same-couch multiplayer anymore in other games, not even racing games (Burnout!). Developers are way too busy focusing on making a pretty game than something that runs smooth and allows multiplayer.

        Very true. People bash on Nintendo for not making games have online multiplayer, but I rather have local than online. In ten or twenty years, I can still play a game with local multiplayer and have fun with it. A game where the fun is in online multiplayer will be worthless in a few decades or maybe years.
