When gaming legend Shigeru Miyamoto speaks the entire gaming landscape pauses for a second and listens. With rumors circulating that Super Mario 4 would be announced this year, more than 20 years after the release of Super Mario 3 on the Nintendo Entertainment System, people took notice.
Speaking to Korean website BetaNews the man himself confirmed that the game was under development. Unfortunately outside of those details he offered little else.
“We have Mario team in company, so we are making Super Mario 4. But only I can say is, we just announced that game. More details will be revealed later.”
Perhaps an E3 2012 reveal? Word has been that this will be the big “coming out” party for Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U.
