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."

The story is too old to be commented.

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.

legendoflex1726d ago

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

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

Dj7FairyTail1725d ago

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.

Felonycarclub81725d ago

I want to see a super Mario 64 game in hd, with graphics like the Zelda demo they had when they were first showing the wii-u . :-)

jaymart2k1725d ago

Exclusives Only

Wonderful 101
Pikmin 3
Mario Kart
New 3D Mario
New Super Smash Bros
Lego City Umdercover
Nintendo Land
Monster Hunter 3 HD

legendoflex1725d ago

MH3 and new Super Smash Bros. won't be Wii U exclusives.

gamer421725d 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.

deafdani1725d ago

Well, Nintendo exclusives then. It's almost the same thing. :P

gamer421725d ago (Edited 1725d ago )

WHOOPS I said kojima instead of Sakurai, sorry about that. :P

Dj7FairyTail1725d ago

Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem
Xenoblade 2

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.
