Pikmin 2 and Mario 128 in 2003!

Cube-europe have reported that Shigeru Miyamoto wants Mario 128 and Pikmin 2 to be out by years end, and also that the next zelda will be released in 2004. I have a feeling Super Mario 128 has been in development for a long time and will be something special.

That IS good news. And we don't even have Zelda yet!
I'm gonna pre-order Zelda tomorrow, whether the Pre-Order discs are coming out here or not. If they are, then I get two games! Well, one and a half.

Well what do you expect when it was first shown E3 2000 and already announced (technically) back when the GCN was still the Dolphin and Shiggy said it would be more mature.

Its probably already been in development since 1999. ITS GONNA BE THA BOMB.

I expect Mario 128 to be released this Christmas. Why not? Nintendo doesnt have a First party AAA title for Christmass yet.... They need a Big gun to fight off Halo 2

"next zelda will be released in 2004."

AH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!

Unless they've been working on two Zelda games at the same time there is NO WAY that's going to happen.  I'd say same thing with Mario.  Pikmin 2 is the only title I would expect to see in 2003 as they would have had two years to make the game.  But Mario or Zelda titles being released only a year apart is a pipe dream.  Nintendo isn't EA you know.

first of all what the hell is mario128.....is it not pikmin meets mario.....if it is it wont dont htink i will be a big fan o the game. pikmin is cool, mario is cool, but if u put them together.........no. hopefully it isnt what i am thinking. cuz wasnt mario 128 shown at e3 and it was the same engine used to make pikmin.......hopefully its just a normal mario title with castles and power ups and all that. mario 64x2= masrio128 hopefully thats what it stands for. CUZ I WOULD KILL FOR THAT SHlT!!!! as for zelda.....i wouldnt mind it being cell shaded again as long as link is an adult. they should make the game more like an anime and less like a cartoon if u know what i mean. links head is too big. he looks like an annoying kid that u would kick across the room if he talked too much. anyways i am babbling, but hopefully these dates hold.

Super Mario 128 will be the true sequal to Super Mario 64. If you want a better idea of how good it should be, think of the Mario Brothers games for NES.

    Super Mario Brothers (The first real Mario game, not counting those arcade games) *Relates to Super Mario 64

      Super Mario Brothers 2 (This one was different and the least favorite for many, but still good) *Relates to Super Mario Sunshine

        Super Mario Brothers 3 (The greatest of the three!) *Relates to Super Mario 128!

        This will not be Pikmin meets Mario, this will not be 100 Marios, this will be the next real adventure. It won't be rushed, it won't focus on objects and it won't be buggy.

        (I am not saying SMS was bad, just saying that it will be the worst out of the 3 most recent games. Or at least I hope.)

        Ian:  Obviously you missed the SMS interview posted on Nintendo.com.  Here is one choice quote that may be of interest to you:

        Miyamoto:  "Whenever we are working on so-called series games, I really feel it's necessary to make the interval between a game and its sequel as short as possible, and we have to do something to improve the situation for our fans. Accordingly, people who used to work together on the Mario series have been split into several teams in order to introduce Mario series games with less lag time between them. We are taking a similar approach to the Zelda series."

        The rest of the article is really good too.  
        SMS Interview

        Anyway, throughout the interview, Miyamoto and the other NOJ developers repeatedly stress the different ways that they are trying to reduce development times in between sequels.  So, while they may not accomplish the goal, I truly believe that Nintendo is going to try to release a new Mario game for Q4 2003 and a new Zelda game for Q4 2004.

        all i can hope for is that mario 128 is a side scrolling game
        think about it: all the moves and items from super mario world, the suits from mario 3
        oh yeah and they should put BROTHERS back into the title
        it would be great to have another mario brothers game for the 2 player co-op

        Nobody knows ANYTHING about Mario 128.  The only thing I know is the E3 demo, with all the Marios.  Personally, I think it'd make an interesting (bizarre) puzzle game.  If you can give me a link saying that Mario 128 is the direct sequel to Mario 64, I'll believe you.

        Frankly I dont think the game will remain the same Mario 128 tech demo we saw at E3 2000, or will it even have the same name. I'm thinking it will be more like Super Mario 64. And it's more likely it would appear in 2004 considering Miyamoto said himself there'd be a new Mario game ever 2 years.

        Are you talking about the "128 Marios" demo? It isn't the same thing as "Mario 128".  And I don't remember anything about any game being "more mature"

        Could someone clear this one thing up for me:

        Is "Mario 128" the one with 128 (100?) Marios jumping around at once? The tech demo?

        Or is it a new Mario, as in Mario 64 for the 128-bit generation?

        I was leaning towards the latter, but one of Matt's mailbag answers suggested otherwise. A "puzzle game" I think is what he called it.

        RICK KNOWS SOMETHING!!

        I thought the demo shown at E3 2000 or whenever it was was a tech demo called 100 marios?!?! Super Mario 128 is not the same thing people, it is the true sequal to Mario 64 we have all been waiting for, Miyamoto said in an interview "Mario 128 will have the newness that Sunshine was missing". Well, i think its a new proper Mario game, not a puzzle game. And Rick just hinted at something, TELL US MORE RICK! Please

        Like Koopa Troopa said, the "128 Marios" demo is not the same thing as Mario 128.  The demo was shown at the unveiling of GameCube during SpaceWorld.  Nintendo wanted to illustrate the GameCube's power by showing 128 Marios acting independently, all at the same time, with a (from what I remember) really stable framerate.

        What 'roid said is also true, to some extent.  Shiggy did express interest in making the next Zelda game non cel-shaded.  So, if you think that makes it more mature (I don't necessarily think so), then the next Zelda will be more mature.
        I like the stars.  It's the illusion of permanance.  I can pretend that things last...that lives last longer than moments.

        The games will most likely be released in Japan this year. America will probably be in 2004. It takes a japanese game to be americanized about an average of 3 months.

        Have you read any of the specifications on Nintendo's website? The GameCube uses a 128-bit PowerPC processor. You're thinking of the Nintendo 64, which uses a 64-bit processor.

        EDIT: And on a sidenote, you might want to update your sig - both the PS2 and GameCube are 128-bit systems. The XBox, on the other hand, is 32-bit. (Actually, the Pentium series is 64-bit, since it uses a 64-bit data bus, but no one seems to know that for some reason.)
