Nintendo have confirmed the Wii U will be getting a high definition Super Mario game after series creator Shigeru Miyamoto let slip one was indeed in the works.
Speaking to a Spanish newspaper while on a trip to France to visit the Louvre, Shigeru Miyamoto mentioned that he was currently working on a new Super Mario game, set to be revealed for Wii U at E3 this June.
Now, Nintendo have issued a statement confirming Mr. Miyamoto’s claims, stating they will reveal the new Super Mario game at the trade event;
“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. We’ll have more to announce about our plans for the E3 Expo at a later date.”
The game could be Super Mario 4 – a direct sequel to the Super Nintendo game released in 1988, Super Mario Bros. 3. Nintendo have recently registered the domain “supermario4.com” leading to speculation that the game will eventuate for the new console.
The game may also be already-sort-of-announced Super Mario Bros. Mii which was actually shown at last year’s Wii U reveal. Nintendo were a little bit cryptic and said the game was only a demo, yet the game was already trademarked for the event lastyear.
Whatever the case, a high definition Mario game is only months away. And yes, it will be all kinds of awesome.
