Nintendo have announced that the story reported concerning both Pikmin 3 and Mario 4 are indeed, true.
Concerning Pikmin 3: “In a recent interview, Mr. Miyamoto confirmed that a new Pikmin game will be shown at the E3 Expo in June. He believes that anyone who has played Pikmin games in the past will enjoy playing.”
Concerning Mario 4: “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.”
Shingeru Miyamoto seems to be a busy man of late, just a few days ago we at RGT reported that he wanted to work on a new Zelda: Link To The Past, and now news has come that he plans to debut a NEW Super Mario on Nintendo’s new Wii U console.
“[Miyamoto] anticipates that at E3, the largest exhibition of video games, held in June in Los Angeles, Nintendo will launch a new Super Mario for this platform, which will combine the TV screen with the remote.” (Google Translate)
In the same interview, Mr Miyamoto expressed that he was also focusing on smaller (but still important) titles for the Wii U such as cute and popular Pikmin 3 and Lugi’s Mansion 2 (whose last outing was on Nintendo’s Gamecube).
