Seems appropriate that one of the first Wii U games would be a Super Mario Bros. title, right? While in Paris promoting Nintendo's 3D tour guide, Shigeru Miyamoto reportedly told Spanish newspaper El Mundo that he's expecting a new Super Mario game for Wii U to be showcased at E3.
The publication couldn't offer any direct quotes from Miyamoto to corroborate, but Nintendo did confirm the news shortly after. In response to inquiries made by Eurogamer, Nintendo spokesperson replied:
"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. We'll have more to announce about our plans for the E3 Expo at a later date."
Not that Super Mario Bros. is the only game we're anticipating. In the same El Mundo report, Miyamoto was quoted as saying:
"I'm working on several projects but I think that I cannot talk about them all [laughs]. Some are small but important projects for Wii U. Also on a new Pikmin, which will take advantage of the new HD screen resolution, and on Luigi's Mansion for 3DS."
As of now, most details surrounding the Wii U are speculation, and we expect Nintendo will keep quiet for the most part until E3. The console is rumored to launch in November.
