I can't help but feel disappointed when seeing this preview for Super Mario Star Road DS. Remember how tough the original Mad Musical Mess was? Now there's random platforms everywhere, the near-instant-death trumpets now have air blowing out of them, and that star where you had to use the jumping block just right is, well, just another star now. (Not to mention Luigi's presence, but there's not much to be done about that.) Sure, the original version was hard as hell, but that's what made its charm. Cloudrail Station also appears to be less deadly, for what it's worth. Super Mario 64 DS was guilty of it to an extent too, but that's no reason to repeat Nintendo's mistakes.
I will say this, though: the new Band Land remix sounds freaking sweet. Can't take that away.
