UPDATE 2: Mario Wii U to be Shown at E3

UPDATE 2 : Nintendo of America has confirmed that the Mario game is in fact the New Super Mario Bros. Mii demo shown at E3 last year. NOA issued the following statement:

“In a recent interview, Mr. Miyamoto confirmed that a new Super Mario Bros. game for the Wii U system will be shown at this year’s E3 Expo. This is based on the Mario experience that was demonstrated at last year’s E3 Expo. We’ll have more to announce about our plans for the E3 Expo at a later date.”




UPDATE: Nintendo has confirmed that a new Super Mario Bros. game for the Wii U will be announced this coming June at Nintendo’s E3 2012 press conference. The report also adds that more information will be released soon.



ORIGINAL STORY: During his trip to visit the Louvre Museum in Paris, Miyamoto took the time to sit down with Spanish magazine Throughout the interview, Miyamoto dropped some small tidbits that might interest the large community of Mario fans. Coming from a NeoGAF post:

– He is working in several small but important projects. Right now he is very focused on Pikmin 3 and Luigi’s Mansion 2

Nintendo will show a new Super Mario game for the Wii U at E3. Combining the TV screen with the tablet screen.

– He wants to make something with the Wii Music IP.


So what could this mean? This is clearly separate from the already confirmed 2D Mario side-scroller for the 3DS that will also be shown at E3. Should we expect another entry into the Galaxy series or maybe an entire new direction for the platforming Mario games? Sound off in the comments and let us know what you think!

    I honestly think this super mario game is the 2D one, and not a fully fleched out 3D adventure. First, as it is said from the interview it is a new “super mario bros” title, and when they mention it with the “bros” in it, it is mostly refered (I think) to the 2D ones. Super mario bros 1, super mario bros 2-3 ect. minus World. If it had been said with diferent terms like just “a new Mario game” then maybe to me it could have sounded like a new 3D one. Second, they already said they were working in a 2D one, but didnt specify if it was on the 3DS or WII-U (if i am correct)so this said by Miyamoto could be a recomfirmation of such thing, only that he failed to mention if it was the same game. Plus the domain they added recently is named after Super Mario 4 which is mostly refered to a continuation from Super Mario Bros 3, what it is strange thougth is that the “bros” in the title is missing. Also, Super Mario 3D land was just released last year and it was a 3D platformer (thougth admittably not as big)and even taking that one out Galaxy 2 was released just in 2010, and Nintendo usually take their time creating those new 3D Mario games so it doesnt look possible! Lastly, one of the demos from last year was a 2D Mario game named New Super Mario Bros Mii, this could be the end result of the idea implemented from the demo to allow the game to run on the tv and also on the controller. But then again, 2D or 3D, this is some great news, and i will surely be excited to see it. The thing is that I just feel bigger excitement when it is a new 3D adventure specially since Nintendo is used to throw new stuff at Mario with their new consoles! ┬┐What could possibly be next from Super Mario Galaxy and 2? I think that what awaits should be big, really BIG, and who knows maybe it IS the new 3D game……….LETS HOPE!

  • Hammer Bro.,Green Dry Bones,and Green Magikoopa

    Super Mario Galaxy 3(D) should be the title because it has 3 in it and the D for 3D.

  • hey-ho

    i hope that wii music ip looks like guitar hero or rockband

  • emotoad64/hamstergirl98

    SuperMario sunshine 2 please e3e

    • RHoney Queen’s the best

      For your information, i’m not one of those crazy Super Mario Sunshine Fans, But the first Super Princess Peach Fan.
      So, Super Princess Peach 2 for e3 2016 Please?

  • guy

    above ikr luigi mansion horrible it has a sequal

  • im hoping that they will show Mario Party 10 at e3 2013 for wii u, man it will be the best mario party to exsist.
    Also im saving up for the 3ds and im close to getting one and then im saving up for the wii u which im guesing will be $300 and im definitly buying a wii u man the console looks awesome.

    • Honey Queen’s the best

      It would be Cool Mario Party 10 But I think it would have 14 Characters Like Mario Party 8 and I think all Mario Party 9 Characters (Except Shy Guy and Kamek) would return.
      My Character Ideas:
      Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Wario, Waluigi, Yoshi, Birdo, Toad, Koopa Troopa, Boo, Honey Queen (She Replaces Shy Guy from Mario Party 9), Rosalina (She Replaces Kamek also from Mario Party 9), and an unknown 14th Character.

      • hey-ho

        your idea sounds like mario party galaxy

        • Honey Queen’s the best

          as mario party 9 sounded like new super mario party bros. wii

      • Honey Queen’s the best

        Because this Mario Party will have Super Mario Galaxy 2 Environments and Minigames, but New Super Mario Bros. 2 Graphics.

    • Honey Queen’s the best

      I think the 14th character would be Lubba or maybe Goomba but i vote for Lubba.

  • Shy Guy and Blooper

    If there is a Mario Party 10, I really hope Shy Guy would return. He’s my FAVORITE character.

    • HoneyQueenWiggler7

      Sorry, Shy Guy and Blooper but, Like Diddy Kong Racing DS, Who Replaced Banjo with Tiny Kong and Conker with Dixie Kong, Shy Guy will be replaced by Honey Queen and Kamek will be replaced by Rosalina.

  • Shy Guy and Blooper

    Oh and also the picture on the Wii U is for super mario galazy 2 (haunty halls galaxy), for those of you who didn’t notice. They probably just cropped the picture and put it on a picture of a Wii U. Oh, and they did announce a 2d mario game (or New Super Mario Bros 2) for the 3DS. This is probably another 2d mario game though. However, if its a new mario galaxy game, then I will be SO happy.
