The lights are on
Update: A Nintendo of America spokesperson clarified Miyamoto's comments saying the new game is based off of last year's tech demo. Below is the company's statement sent to Game Informer:
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.
Nintendo today confirmed it will show off a new Super Mario Bros. title for the Wii U at E3 this June.
The news originally surfaced from an interview with Spanish newspaper El Mundo, where designer Shigeru Miyamoto allegedly said there will be a new Super Mario title at E3. Nintendo later confirmed the news in a statement sent to Eurogamer.
"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," a Nintendo spokesperson said. "We'll have more to announce about our plans for the E3 Expo at a later date."
E3 kicks off on June 5, 2012 in Los Angeles.
Nintendo could have the best press conference. I want to see more of the Wii U and hopefully see some awesome 3DS games.
I'm getting the Wii U cuz its gonna be beast.
i can so i'm not suprised at all lol
well that's a surprise
This could very well may be that Super Mario Bros 4 thing we heard a little while back.
I can't stand the look or the controls of the WiiU so far. But I'm so looking forward to how Mario and Link look in HD!!!
Good to see Nintendo is getting there ducks in a row for the Wii U. Having A SMB title off the bat is essential for them if they wanna make waves. Can't wait to see, that plumber rarely disappoints. :)
I don't want more mario. Unless it's a new mario kart or...the best thing that could ever happen ever...a sequel to Mario Strikers Charged :D
I think Nintendo should make a 3D game but in the universe as Super Mario 2 and it would be sweet to be able to play as Toad again. Along w/ Princess Peach and The Mario Bros. It doesn't even have to be in the same dream world as the 2nd game. They just need to make a game where you can select those 4 not the blue and yellow toad the REAL toad. Heck I'd like to play a game where Toad actually saves the day. Or Toad and Mario team up. Or even Mario and Peach. If anyone ever watched the cartoon series she wasn't some wimpy Princess. She actually fought and saved Mario and Luigi numerous times. It's about time to give the Princess a back bone and show her true side not the wimpy damsel in distress.
