Miyamoto's no-show at E3 press briefing ignites rumour of dreams...
In slightly shocking news from Nintendo, it looks like the father of Mario and Zelda, Shigeru Miyamoto, will not be taking the stage at the company's E3 press conference in LA next week, kickstarting rumours that a new Super Mario game could well be announced at the show.
"Not to put the great man down but this is a good omen for the hardcore Nintendo fan," says Editor of NGamer, Nick Ellis.
"In the last two years, Shigsy has used the press conference to announce Wii Fit (E3 2007) and Wii Music (E3 2008). Perhaps his absence from the stage this year means we'll be getting some of the announcements that we wanted last year, such as a follow up to Super Mario Galaxy."
