Miyamoto confirmed during last week’s E3 2016 Expo that a new mainstream Mario title is in development and a reveal could be seen at E3 2017. Speaking with IGN, Miyamoto stated that he would like to show off the game in another year or two, saying that the team is trying to “create something new” when it comes to the conventions of Mario.
This might sound familiar as a similar approach is being taken with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. However, Miyamoto explains that the same changes are harder to make with the Mario series as it reaches a much different and wider audience.
It’s easy to assume that we won’t hear about this title for quite some time, but we’ll keep you posted if anything else is revealed!
