A Third Mario Brother? Miyamoto Explains

In a recent interview with GT.TV, Miyamoto explained the possibility of adding a third brother for Mario and Luigi.

“I don’t know what types of games I’m going to make in the future… Perhaps there will come a day when Mario needs a third brother, and so at that point maybe we’ll create him.”

– Shigeru Miyamoto

For almost 30 years, Mario and Luigi have been known as the iconic brothers of video games. Since their debut in Mario Bros., the brothers have seen their fair share of relatable friends, including the similarly dressed Wario and Waluigi. However, there has been no official mention of who exactly fits into the Mario family, leaving the two brothers alone as sole siblings.

While this little tidbit does not announce or confirm anything, it is certainly an interesting topic to ponder. What kind of character would you like to see in the third brother role? How would he fit in the current dynamic between Mario and Luigi? What kind of personality would he have? What color would he main? Perhaps we might even see a sister? Give us your answers in the comments and let us know what you want from a third brother!
