RUMOR: New 3D Mario Platformer in the Works

Surprise, surprise. According to the Paul Gale Network, a new 3D Mario game, separate from New Super Mario Bros. U, is in the works and is due for release sometime next year. The source goes on to compare the release of New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Super Mario Galaxy 2, suggesting that we will see something similar with the Wii U, only with a longer time span between releases.

You also might be wondering how much we can trust the Paul Gale Network. In late 2011, they were the ones to break news of the PlayStation 3 exclusive, Title Fight, now known as PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale. Whatever the case may be, we can certainly expect a 3D Mario game on the Wii U.

Thank you for sharing your interest in this story and yes, however obvious as it might be, at least it’s better “knowing” that a 3D Mario game is in development for Wii U and not just “assuming” that it’s happening. Hopefully I’ll be able to learn more, but at least some news is good news for now.

I think the 3d mario game will be a new style of Mario and it will be called Super Mario U.

I’m thinking this game will be 2 play since the wii u has far less limitations then the wii

I’m actually waiting for a Super Princess Peach Sequel, and it doesn’t matter if the sequel is 3D or 2D.

I really don’t wanna another Mario galaxy 1 was fun 2 wasn’t bad but I think they would try something new…either way I love to see FLUUD make a return. Sunshine 2 would be nice. But if they absolutely must make another galaxy they should bring back FLUUD imaging rocketing n hover through space with water would be kinda cool. :3
