New Mario Wii U based on that seen at E3 2011
Nintendo have seemingly moved to disperse hopes that they are to unveil a new 3D Mario adventure, akin to the critically-acclaimed Super Mario Galaxy, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2012.
It has been clarified that the project Shigeru Miyamoto referred to within a recent interview “is based on the Mario experience that was demonstrated at last year’s E3 Expo.”
This was New Super Mario Bros. Mii, showcased at E3 2011 as a technical demonstration for the kind of “experience” that Wii U owners could expect from the new home console.
“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 representative clarified to GameSpot.
“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.”
