    We all knew a new mario game was in the works, but with it showing at E3 it may even make it to launch which would be a HUGE system seller. Maybe even a smaller title as a pack-in would do even better.

    (update) Confirmed the new mario title is based off the E3 demo from last year!

    So we have a confirmation that this is a New Super Mario Bros game... but will it be the rumored Super Mario 4?

    As much as I love the first two games, I hope its not another New Super Mario Bros game, unless they've made it very different.

    No more Galaxy please, hopefully a direct spiritual sequel to Super Mario 64. Co-op with Luigi please.

    Or Super Mario Sunshine 2, because that was the best of the best.

    I see that coming to 3DS just like Luigi's Mansion 2 is or maybe a couple of years...if they ever do it because I'm sure they're go for either a big money spinner style title like NSMB to bring the casuals in or something big like World/64/Galaxy were. I don't think Sunshine 2 would be something that they'd think would be a system seller.

    Hopefully this will be the first fully fledged game since galaxy 2, and that was two years ago.
    Announcing it at E3 would probably mean a 2013 release.

    Personally I want a whole new style, make it take place in an urban place with sewers and stuff I mean he's a plumber after all, imagine a 3d platformer that has that original arcade Mario Bros/clash feel lookswise, that would totally freshen things up.

    Well not really.

    So far they haven't announced one title for Wii U and its pretty expected that they will launch with at least one title. Super Mario 3D Land was announced at GDC 2011 and was released the same year. Same with Mario Kart 7.

    If that's the criteria Wii U's going to have only 2-3 games come launch ;) We're going to see a whoooole lot of Wii U games announced at E3, and a lot of them are likely to be out at launch.

    I do enjoy Paper Mario but they aren't exactly platformers plus it isn't the same style as the one I'm thinking of, have a look at Mario Clash to see what I mean.

    I was thinking early 2013 but maybe you're right we have no idea how far into development they actually are.

    Damn double post.

    Anything that isn't 2D would be awesome.

    If the WiiU launched with a Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong or Kirby game I'd have to get it..if it's no opening with any of it's own development..I'm not buying it.
    The 3DS made me realise it's not worth pre-ordering a console unless you're damn sure some good games are going to come out at the same time.

    It was one thing during the peak of their business, but now.....I dunno.

    edit

    As far as a platformer is concerned, I realized that the last unique Mario "platformer" to launch with a Nintendo system was Mario 64 on the N64. The GC and Wii didn't, and neither did the GBA/DS (both of which had remakes), and 3DS.

    lol NO!

    Square Enix are nothing now without their other studios, the last good game they did was The World Ends With You...in 2009...and that was co-developed by Jupiter. In house they make pretty sub-standard titles.

    Best leave the RPG titles to Intelligent Systems who have BETTERED SMRPG with Paper Mario & Mario & Luigi 1 & 3, besides this is more likely to be a platformer.

    Actually Alphadream made the Mario & Luigi titles (which are damn good games, especially Superstar Saga). But yeah, we don't really need an RPG from Square Enix.
