    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.

    New Galaxy would be awesome indeed. But then again, I hope is something more fresh.

    *sigh* I like a Mario game as much as the next guy but, frankly, I'm sick of seeing that hairy little plumber. There's a difference between creating fresh ways to play the same old games and innovating with brand new ideas. There's a lot of Nintendo franchises that just don't seem to be getting the attention they deserve.

    Nintendo need to focus on bringing a wider variety of video games and characters to attract a more varied audience to the Wii U and 3DS.

    surely with big companies as soon as they finish one mario/zelda/pokemon/cod/etc game, they start on the next, or, they start on the next even before finishing the current one... right? i don't see how it is ever a surprise that a new one will come out... :)

    Here's hoping Nintendo finally gives us the Mario Is Missing sequel we've been asking for.

    Come on, Nintendo, it's time to get on the ball already.

    I can respect that. I think the problem lies with the spin-off titles. There's just so many between Kart, Party and the assorted Sports, RPG and Puzzle games. If they stuck with the core games of the franchise- there'd be only 16 games in all since 1985. Kill the spin-offs, except perhaps Mario Kart and the RPGs, and put more time and effort into developing other franchises.

    But as for the main-series Mario's, too much is never enough for me. Personally, I'd have preferred the "New" series axed to put more effort into the more recent 3D Mario's, but apparently I'm in the minority.

    Hmm, I think that they should be making a game for 2015 to celebrate 30 years of Super Mario Bros. A game that makes call backs to every major Mario game until today. Maybe mixing the gameplays of 64, Galaxy and 3D. Can you imagine a stage based on SMB1 in full 3D platforming, a la Piranha Plant Slide? Maybe I'm expecting too much, but I will be waiting until their official announcement.

    As long as it's better than the abortive Sticker Star, I'm all for it.

    I found Sticker Star actually pretty good compared to Super Paper Mario.

    It needs to be like the first 2 games.

    I'd love it to be a new G3, and focusing more on the gamepad is fine I guess. I'm hoping they atleast make it optional though, more control options is always better. I like how Mario world had some optional gamepad levels.
