Nintendo has confirmed that it will announce a new Super Mario Bros. for its upcoming Wii U console in June at E3.

Develop Shigeru Miyamoto reportedly told the Spanish newspaper El Mundo an entry in Nintendo’s biggest franchise was being worked on for the Wii U and would make an appearance in June. This report was later confirmed by Eurogamer.

“In a recent interview, Mr. Miyamoto confirmed that a new Super Mario Bros. game for the Wii U system will be shown at this year’s E3 Expo,” said a Nintendo spokesperson. “We’ll have more to announce about our plans for the E3 Expo at a later date.”

Nintendo has recently registered the domain SuperMario4.com, which was believed to be a side-scroller for the 3DS but now is likely to be the Wii U game in question.

What are you hoping for out of a new Super Mario game? Would this increase the likelihood you purchasing a Wii U if you hadn’t planned on it before?

    I’m of the opinion that Nintendo can do no wrong with Super Mario Bros games.  I just hope it’s ready for Wii U at launch.

       well sometimes they did for the second Galaxy game I felt they want backwards a little with the linear format like the first game which sucked now i want the evolation of Mario why I bought Mario galaxy was the twists and turns of seeing him in the galaxy and not the linear game format of this new game coming out

    Eh.  Dunno.  I am not a fan of the Wii U from what I’ve heard.  Actually I’m quite unhappy with the idea.  I guess it would depend on the level of awesomeness of the Mario game.  And the price tag.

    If it’s a 3D mario game I’m happy. If it’s another side-scroller I’m disappointed. As much as i liked the “New Super Mario Bros.” games, my heart lies with “Super Mario 64″, “Super Mario Galaxy (1)”, and “Super Mario Sunshine” styled games.
