The Year of Luigi is a Perfect Time to Release the First 3D Super Mario ‘Bros.’ Game for Wii U

GenGAME writes: "The two Mario Galaxy games, which released for Wii, allowed you to play as Luigi, but you couldn’t have the two players team up as the two bros. like you could in the side-scrolling series.

"With Wii U, however, one of the big barriers to simultaneous multiplayer in a 3D Mario title has been removed: thanks to the power of Off-TV Play on the GamePad, there’s no need to break up the pretty picture on the main TV with boxed split-screen to feature both bros. at once." (Super Mario, Super Mario 3D Land, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Wii U)

Well they did announce it was in development. My guess is it will come out in spring of next year though. I get the feeling Wind Waker Reborn and Mario Kart will be the only games that make it to the holiday season. But then I could be wrong. We'll see come E3 I suppose.

That's already been confirmed for Q2 this year though, right? I'm talking about the really big titles that we will probably see at E3.

They announced a "3D Mario" was in announcement.

There has never been a "3D Super Mario Bros." before.

They said a Playable Demo meaning it close to complete.

Same with Mario Kart Wii U

I don't know why but prefer Luigi over Mario.
I hope you can play as him in the next 3D Mario game.

MH3 and new Super Smash Bros. won't be Wii U exclusives.
gamer42  +   1056d ago
i thought there was an interview with iwata or kojima saying that the two smash bros. will be two completely different experience. the console version has the best multiplayer experience, the 3ds one has the best single player one.
deafdani  +   1056d ago
Well, Nintendo exclusives then. It's almost the same thing. :P
gamer42  +   1056d ago
WHOOPS I said kojima instead of Sakurai, sorry about that. :P

Super smash brothers isn't out yet. Don't make things up.

Lego city JUST was released.

Bayonetta = overrated series

Nintendoland = ehh but it's no Wii sports

Legend of Zelda = not out until 2014-2015

Monster Hunter = solid effort

WW = awesome.....but not out yet

E3 will be huge for Nintendo this year in terms of laying out it's next 2 years plan of software.

"Bayonetta = overrated series "

How is that relevant?

I personally loved Bayonetta for the combo system. You can't dismiss games because you think they are overrated. They are still part of the library.

BTW going "Not just out yet". How the hell then, can you even say the Bayonetta "series" is overrated when only ONE game is released so far. You don't even know how the second game will be.

Your opinion on the games is absolutely irrelevant to the statement whether WiiU has games or not.

I find it Ironic how you are the one to say what is overrated. Coming from a person with a Sword Art Online avatar. LMAO.

Im ready for a new Zelda title.. I didnt care for skyward sword too much.. Twilight Princess was amazing though... A new & intuitive mario galaxy successor would be nice though.. But if its the same thing again, i wouldnt even buy it..

I would LOVE this to come true
