In an interview published today with a Spanish news site by the name of El Mundo, famed game creator Shigeru Miyamoto stated that the first Mario game for the Wii U would be revealed at this year’s E3. The comment was then confirmed by a Nintendo representative via Eurogamer. The website also provided a full English translation of the relevant passage from the Miyamoto interview:
During the interview, Miyamoto also had the following to say regarding what other projects were currently taking up his time:
Of course, the fact that the Wii U has a new Mario game in development should be about surprising as the fact that water is wet. Look at the effect the world’s most badass plumber has had on 3DS sales alone after all. Still, just because the game’s existence is obvious does not make the idea of the upcoming reveal any less exciting. After all, Mario has often been the series where Nintendo really cuts loose and shows off the best of their game design, and then there is the element of the Wii U’s new controller to consider as well. Just one more reason to get excited for this year’s E3.
