Nintendo confirms Wii U Super Mario Bros game for E3

Nintendo has confirmed a report that a new Mario title will be shown for Wii U at E3 2012. The company didn’t specify if the game will be New Super Mario Bros. Wii, a project from EAD Tokyo, or something else entirely.

Nintendo’s statement reads:

“In a recent interview, Mr. Miyamoto confirmed that a new Super Mario Bros. game for the Wii U system will be shown at this year’s E3 Expo. We’ll have more to announce about our plans for the E3 Expo at a later date.”

In other news, we have a direct-quote from Miyamoto in which he commented on the projects he’s been busy with:

“I’m working on several projects but I think that I cannot talk about them all [laughs]. Some are small but important projects for Wii U. Also on a new Pikmin, which will take advantage of the new HD screen resolution, and on Luigi’s Mansion for 3DS.”
