I absolutely believe there will be a somewhat strict 2D side-scrolling Mario Bros. title and a 3D Mario platformer on Wii U; it would be ridiculous if Nintendo didnâ€™t have them. It is somewhat confusing to imagine how a 2D, multiplayer platformer could utilize the controller beyond direct screen transmission. Honestly, I kept thinking thatâ€™s all we would see, at least this year, was a New Super Mario Bros. of some kind. I didnâ€™t seriously consider a new 3D Mario until I read about Tokyo EAD group 1 in the developers article, so thanks again. Except, with a new technological platform, I can see an evolution in these series to show something fresh; it seems a lot of times Mario, and other Nintendo franchises, get unfairly accused of being rehashes. Think SM64, Sunshine, Galaxy, and it gets people anxious about whatâ€™s next, positive or negative. Regardless of release dates given at E3, I still think we will see a multitude of games to be excited about. Since Iwata already announced it, most likely the new 2D Mario 3DS game will be out for this holiday, or spring 2013; Iâ€™m expecting a Zelda 3DS release within the same period. Also, the PAX videos were great.
