Nintendo Confirm New Mario Game For Wii U At E3!

by

Miyamoto has had a slip of the tongue, when being interviewed by Spanish newspaper, El Mundo. Whats more exciting is that Nintendo has issued a statement confirming the information as true…

The original interview except…

“Miyamoto, who smiled during all the interview – even when he wants to change the topic because ‘it’s not the moment’ to talk about Wii U – thinks that the experience and the new game modes of this new console won’t be ‘easily replicated in other devices’, which will allow them to escape the new tablet competition. The creator advances that at the next E3, the biggest video games show, which is celebrated in Los Angeles in June, Nintendo will present a new Super Mario for this platform, in which you will combine the TV screen with the screen in the controller.”

Nintendo’s 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,” a Nintendo spokesperson said. “We’ll have more to announce about our plans for the E3 Expo at a later date.”

It is also worth noting that Nintendo has also confirmed that they will debut at side-scrolling Mario for the 3DS at E3. Wonder if there’s any chance of cross-platform play?
