It's funny, I haven't owned a Wii in years, and I've kind of forgotten about Nintendo (console wise).

Yet it's the only company that has games that could be system sellers for me if they made them... I would seriously buy a Wii U if they announced a new F-Zero, or a new Metroid. If I didn't have an Xbox, or a PS3, there wouldn't really be any games that would be system sellers for me like some of Nintendo's are.

I find that highly odd lol. In any case, I'm keeping a close eye on the Wii U, and the games that are announced. XD

Not sure why u have so many disagrees, No one can argue that Ninty's franchises have system selling power, but i also dont own a Wii, never have....but the Wii-U does have my attention.

One game i do miss is Zelda because i had the gamecube and the gameboy Sp and playing Wind Waker was a very unique fun experience, so i can only imagine an HD zelda with the Wii-Pad

Hopefully this Mario does something that can interests me.
Snookies12  +   1392d ago
Lol, well there are always people who just like to disagree no matter what is said. ^^;

The Wii was great at first, but there just weren't enough games coming out that kept my attention. Zelda's are always amazing, though I'm not sure how I felt about Skyward Sword. Maybe I didn't get far enough, but it didn't come across as one of the better titles in the franchise to me for some reason.

Yeah though, I'll be very interested to see what they do with Mario on the Wii U.

all i want is true sequel to star fox 64. what i mean by that is keep fox in the damn arwing.
maniacmayhem  +   1392d ago
I've been asking for this since Starfox 64.

A true sequel done by the boys at the Big N, not Namco or Rare.
Batzi  +   1392d ago
Anything like "New Super Mario Bros" or Galaxy is welcomed!! Can't wait :D
StanSmith  +   1392d ago
I would kill for Super Mario World to be remade with New Super Mario Bros. graphics.
linkratos  +   1391d ago
i would kill myself. NSMBW had no charm, they need to stick to 2d art style. anything would be better than NSMBW, whether it's an updated SMW look or even a Paper Mario aethetic
GamingPerson  +   1392d ago
I am sure many ps3 and 360 fanboys will talk crap about mario graphics and compare it to gears and uncharted.
I hope this turns out fun!

Because people compare mario to 3rd person shooters? Nice logic
StanSmith  +   1392d ago
GamingPerson said they will compare graphics! Which they will. He/she didn't mean they would literally compare every detail from gameplay to story etc.

scotchmouth  +   1392d ago
Agreed. That game holds up today and is still a blast to play

Disccordia  +   1392d ago
You might be in luck! Wasn't there an article the other day that was rumouring a new 2D mario game? As there's only just been one for 3DS, it might be the WiiU title. Sprites would be kinda cool!
DrPepper  +   1392d ago
sprites would be awesome, i wouldn't mind having a mario game that uses both sprites and 3d graphics and intertwine them into a unique experience.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1392d ago
Awesome! Please make it a 3D Mario. :) Oddly enough, the one Nintendo franchise that can sell me on a system is Wario Ware. It's so addicting!!!
Disccordia  +   1392d ago
I loved Warioware on the gamecube. The Wii version seemed to be ok but the multiplayer modes were terrible, I thought.
SuperStrokey1123  +   1392d ago
So Nintendo for sure wins e3 this year then... new hardware and a new mainline mario game kind of makes it a no brainer
Rainstorm81  +   1392d ago
I hate this way of thinking but sad to say you are 100% right
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1391d ago
So, you're saying the new hardware and a new Mario game would beat out Sony or Microsoft announcing like ten new exclusives?

I'm not sure I can agree with you on that one.
SuperStrokey1123  +   1391d ago
Yeah im pretty sure it will actually.
shackdaddy  +   1391d ago
Ya, like that's gonna happen >_>
Devinchi33  +   1391d ago
Mario alone won't do it, but a massive amount of Wii U info combined with all the new exclusives to be released with it at launch (not just Mario) will. Then show off what the 3rd parties have done with the hardware, and throw in the wave of new 3ds games to come later, such as Paper Mario and Luigi's Mansion. That is a win in my book
StanSmith  +   1391d ago
Microsoft announcing ten exclusives? Simply effin way will that happen. What will they be? Halo 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9 & Forza, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.

Sony may have some tricks but MS will just announce more kinect crap with little child actors over exaggertingly NOT playing a game on stage!
Lyle91  +   1391d ago
And if they announce Zelda, Metroid or Starfox then they will blow everyone out of the water. If it's all three I'm pretty sure Microsoft and Sony would just quit permanently.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1391d ago
I'm talking on a personal basis. The public would eat that up. You would take a new Mario game over a new Uncharted, Halo, Sly Cooper, inFamous, God of War, Gears of War, etc. COMBINED?!?

And haters!

scotchmouth  +   1392d ago
Starting and ending your post with haters while really addressing nothing pertaining to the article makes you look inept. Living up to those one bubble expectations I see.

You mean OpenGL?
And their media is not Blu-ray. Might be bluray derived or something else but's confirmed not to be bluray

As excited as I am about a new Mario game on new hardware, I really wish Nintendo would work on some new IP's. Shigeru Miyamoto remains one of the visionaries of gaming, so surely he has some new ideas too?

Regardless, new Mario is quite exciting.
PopRocks359  +   1391d ago
I remember a month or two ago that Nintendo is rumored to be publishing/developing three new IPs. They gave us Dillon's Rolling Western on 3DS (which was actually pretty decent), so I reckon they'll hit us with more stuff for the new console.
Knushwood Butt  +   1392d ago
I thought Miyamoto was supposed to be making interesting stuff now, not pumping out Mario sequels.
SuperStrokey1123  +   1392d ago
Whats to say a mario game cant be interesting? The last ones have been interesting and fun.
Knushwood Butt  +   1391d ago
Absolutely nothing, but it's just highly unlikely.
mike1up  +   1391d ago
Yea, I am sure Miyamoto has no idea what he's doing. /S
PopRocks359  +   1391d ago
Actually he's currently working on Pikmin 3. He only helps produce certain Mario games (like 3D Land) not necessarily always develop them.

Try again.
Optical_Matrix  +   1392d ago
After Galaxy 2 and Super Mario 3D Land, I've got all the proof I need to know that Nintendo can keep Mario feeling fresh and fun. The level design is always fantastic. Can't wait to see this in all its HD glory.

Mario, smash bros, zelda, mario kart. Rinse repeat, every gen. And people slag off halo for getting rinsed. I'm fed up of nintendo now. I grew up on my snes. Such a shame to see what a joke they've become in the hardcore gaming department. The wii u will bomb, hardcore gamers wont be duped into Thinking it will have hardcore games. And the casual crowd have no need to upgrade their consoles.
2EHO  +   1392d ago
If its not mario galaxy 3. I don't want to see it.
WildStyles  +   1392d ago
Not surprising.
SKUD  +   1391d ago
Last chance for nintendo to remain relevant in the console market.
Sgt_Slaughter  +   1391d ago
I'm sorry who's No.1 in the Console Market and Handheld Market?! Nuff said...
chanmasta  +   1391d ago
HOLY CRAP. I literally almost spat my water out and spazzed out. EPIC. Really can't wait! When I hear about the next Medal of Honor, or Far Cry, etc. I'm like "Oh yeah! Woo!" But when I hear news about a Nintendo game like this, I just spaz out and smile.

- A proud and happy adult who thanks Nintendo for an awesome childhood.

neutralgamer19  +   1391d ago
No disrespect to Nintendo fans and im definitely interested to see how the new Mario plays out but this isnt a surprise at all. If you think about it Mario games aren't really technologically advanced games but because of art style and so forth always look really good and im sure they are easier to program than say a Killzone or gears type game. So in show casing this game Nintendo guarantees themselves a good looking game on their new console without having to really show what the wii u can offer technologically which all the ppl want to see.

Nintendo is just playing it safe you have ppl like me and many others that doubt the wii u will be anything more than another gimmick, barely stronger than the ps3 or xbox (games not noticeably any better than those systems)so to satiate the die hards theyll show another Mario game that looks good but on the technological side doesn't show anything new or push the hardware one bit.
neutralgamer19  +   1391d ago
Plus of course ill be the first to say Mario is a system seller so it is a good strategy.
tweet75  +   1391d ago
probably the same new super mario with wiis we saw at e3 last year more of the same. What would be cool is a repeat of the snes days where the system releases with a top tier mario game packed in !
