Miyamoto Acknowledges Super Mario 4

Shigeru Miyamoto has confirmed to Korean website Betanews that Super Mario 4 is a project that his team over at Nintendo are working on. The translation is a little rough as expected as it’s not absolutely apparent whether Super Mario 4 is the Nintendo 3DS game Nintendo confirmed it’s working on or Super Mario Wii U.

“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.”

- Shigeru Miyamoto

    1. Its Super Mario as in 1,2,3—not 64,sunshine,galaxy

      Its not for the 3ds–It’s for the WII U

      The Wii U demo at e3 showed a demo of a mario game and i believe that they want to recreate the old days/ways

      1. Still, Galaxy 1 and 2 are two sparate games, they even have separate numbers, so Galaxy 2 is the fourth game in the 3D series, so if that’s the logic behing the numbering, the next game would be 5, not 4.
        I think it rather has to do with being a sequel to 3D Land. Since it has ‘3’ on its title, this can be played with so its sequel will be called ‘4’.

        1. Galaxy and Galaxy 2 pretty much count as the same thing, seeing as they both came out in the same generation. I know it doesn’t really make sense from some standpoints, but this is Nintendo

  1. So is this the fourth in the 3D series (counting Galaxy 2 as a Galaxy game)?

    If so, then I’ll be happy. I reckon they’re doing a Mario World remake for 3DS, but this isn’t that project.

    It’s much, much more.

    1. More Metroid!!….. please.
      I want to know what happens to Samus after Prime 3.
      Was it Sylux who followed Samus into space?

      1. We already know what happened after Prime 3. Metroid 2 happened.

        What we need to know is what happened after Metroid Fusion. Samus isn’t exactly on the best terms with the Federation right now…

        But for crying out loud, Mario honestly has higher priority and tier over Zelda and Metroid, especially when it comes to making a good launch lineup for once. And that could not be more true right now.

  3. Wait a minute. I JUST REALIZED SOMETHING! Super Mario 64, then Super Mario Sunshine, then Super Mario galaxy, now Super Mario 4. It’s like what they did with Mario Kart 7, there just naming it with a number!

    Oh wait, it’s a 2-D title. Dang it! Well I can dream, can’t I?

          1. There was also 2 arcade games. Mario Kart Arcade GP (2005, Arcade) (Co-developed by Namco)

            1. Those are like “side” games. Especially more so considering they were only available in arcades. I’m sure almost nobody even considers them as part of the main line, considering they likely haven’t even heard of them.

  4. Umm i feel another Engrish bad pun…

    Super mario 4(four/for) 3D or Super Mario 4 U(for UI)

  5. Super Mario 4 is probably just a prototype name, like how for ages Twilight Princess was just called “The Legend of Zelda”. It could be anything, but i’d be so happy if it was an HD 3D game 64/Sunshine style.

  8. Well this is excellent news! I’m wondering if it could be the fourth game in the “Land” series. Although an American Super Mario Bros. 4 would be cool (we don’t consider Super Mario World Super Mario Bros. 4) and would have to be a must buy for everyone. If this game is available at launch it will mean a very good start for the Nintendo Wii U.

  9. Super Mario 4 could be another 3D console reitteration

    1. being Super Mario 64
    2. being Super Mario Sunshine
    3. being Super Mario Galaxy series 1+2
    4. ???? another great game like these above that are unique to each console?

    Or possibly what midirobot mentioned above

    “Super Mario Land
    Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
    Super Mario 3D Land
    Super Mario 4? (no “Land”, though)”

    my opinion : i hope its not too much like the demo i would get bored of that sort of side scrolling mario game too quick i would hope its more open worlded similar to 64 and sunshine with the inttuitive gameplay of galaxy

  10. The more I think about it, the more I believe this will be a 3DS game that’s compatible with the Wii U NSMB game via some level editor function.

      1. If they’re both sidescrollers, that would be a perfect pair of games to do it with.

        If anything, it could be a test run for similar functionality in the next Smash Bros. games.
