That is, according to the Mariowiki, sourced from this article. This is how I interpret this news: -It's NOT a 2D Mario. It has been clearly stated in the past that there'll only be one 2D Mario per console, both Wii U and 3DS have had their 2D Mario. So we're probably looking at a new 3D Mario. Now why would people want a new 3D Mario? -As to regarding which console it's on, Yoshiaki Koizumi says "It's a secret." However they also said that if it were on Wii U, they'd have to focus on using the Gamepad more. So why would they call it a secret if they just started talking specifically about the Wii U Gamepad? Is this some sort of cross-compatibility hint? -The article states that "they've already started their next challenge". What did they say would be challenging again? What my first thoughts are: This is going the be the Mario game we were expecting last year. Nintendo knows now that there's a large number of people who enjoy Mario games that really innovate and have an enriching experience. 64, Sunshine, Galaxy (2), this one is going to be the next in that line. Of course, after last time I believe that if I get my hopes up we'll be slapped with "Super Mario 3D Land 2". But I'm looking forward to the possibility of something new again.
