Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has confirmed that Nintendo plans to bring one New Super Mario Bros game out per platform. Iwata said it’s both unusual, and a challenge, that the Kyoto based firm has had to develop two different New Super Mario Bros games in a short space of time. New Super Mario Bros 2 for the Nintendo 3DS is out tomorrow in the United States, while New Super Mario Bros U for Wii U is expected later this year.

“We only create a New Super Mario Bros. title one per platform,” Iwata said, while acknowledging that is unusual and a “challenge” for the company to be making two for the same calendar year, one for 3DS and one for Wii U. “I think we’ll probably go ahead and continue at that pace. That being said, that’s probably [Mario creator Shigeru] Miyamoto’s choice, so I can’t give you a 100% guarantee that that’s the pace we’ll continue at.”

  1. Makes sense, Mario is the most popular videogame character of all time. Having his face on the cover of a game automatically sells millions. So by having a Mario title at the begining of every new console it will help the initial sales of that console. It is a good strategy!

            • To be fairly honest here, I find that the PS Vita is actually pretty decent for a handheld games console. The line up of games in the past few months including that poor excuse of a Resistance game (If it ever was good) hasn’t been great, but I’m sure that the Vita will pick up in sales but not as quickly as Sony hopes.

              I’m not affard to say that Sony has fucked up a lot of the time such as the PSN hack, lack in unique IPs, not adding a new controller to the Playstation consoles and so on.

              But I still own a PS1, PS2, PS3, PSP and a PS Vita but I also own so of the reival companies stuff too and I have to say I enjoy them all.

      • So I’m guessing that your a Ultra fan boy then, hu?
        What I mean by that is that Nintendo is rehashing the same game over and over again, and since this is going to happen with each new console that means this game is just going to be redone in some way that people don’t notice that it is the same game.

        Also to answer your planet question, I was born on a planet called Earth which you probably never heard of being born in Uranus.

        I like the Mario games too but I would like to see something unique for once like Mario Galaxy or Super Mario Sunshine.

        • you think they make mario 2D every year? man you are really into crack. if they were to make sequel after sequel in the same platform that’s milking. you bitches would complained that its milking and i would agree to it but because there not doing that way. also once the 2D mario come they will focus on the 3D mario, they got 6 years to make a mario 3D because of 2D mario.

        • Bro, the NSMB games aren’t going to take priority over the 3D ones. Seriously, do you think they’re going to stop making 3D Mario platformers when they make at least one per console? We’re going to continue to get the unique 3D Mario platformers just as we always have.

    • It does seem perfect! However, I’m disappointed that this means we’ll be waiting half a decade for a real improvement! I mean, the 3DS and Wii U NSMB look great but they hardly build massively on the previous games as pretty much every Mario game before it has.

      Like

      • Why would we have to wait half a decade for a 3D Mario platformer? All 3D Mario platformers were released early into their respective consoles lifetimes. Besides, it’s not as if the NSMB games take a long time to make or require any effort so I don’t see why we’d have to wait forever for a 3D Mario platformer.

  14. So we’re going to have to wait a whole console generation before we see a real new game rather than a 3D level pack or a level pack with tablet features? Disappointed. I thought NSMB2 and NSMBU were just to keep us happy until a real new game came. :-( Don’t get me wrong, they look like great games and all that but I don’t think there’s enough new stuff in them. The even used some of the same sprites in NSMB2 as in NSMB for the DS! Still, is got the game classic gameplay and I’m sure, if Amazon deliver it soon, I’ll be playing it solidly!

      They’re going to make “one New Super Mario Bros.” game every platform, NOT “one Mario game.” The Wii had Super Mario Galaxy, THEN New Super Mario Bros. Wii, THEN Super Mario Galaxy 2. Both Galaxy’s and NSMB Wii. Man, some people really do lack intelligence…
