NINTENDO Showing MARIO Game For the ‘Wii U’ At E3

Nintendo is going to launch their next console sensibly, which is to say with a Mario game. They’ll be showing it at this year’s E3, and I totally can’t wait. Okay, I can wait. Can you?


In an article about the Louvre’s 3DS integration, Spanish newspaper  El Mundo  said that Miyamoto revealed plans to show a new Super Mario game for Wii U at E3. However, without a direct quote, it seemed likely that he had been talking about the Wii U and the (confirmed) 3DS Super Mario game, and the two had become conflated. The other, less likely option, is that Miyamoto had let slip the existence of an unannounced game, which is out of character for anyone at Nintendo.

However, that’s exactly what happened.  Eurogamer  received confirmation from Nintendo. “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,” the Nintendo representative told the site. “We’ll have more to announce about our plans for the E3 Expo at a later date.”

During the last E3, Nintendo showed a  Wii U game  (above) based on  New Super Mario Bros.  Wii.  It’s possible that demo may have evolved into this new game, or it could be something totally different. All we know at this point is that it’s a “Super Mario Bros. game.”

It’s just the original Super Mario Bros, but you play it on the Wii U controller while your television displays a really cool Hi-Def (welcome to 2006!) animated image of Mario.
