Is Nintendo working on a new Super Mario Bros sequel to the classic original side scrolling games?
There’s been rumours circulating for a while that Nintendo might continue the original Mario series in one way or another. These rumours were fuelled by Sonic Team bringing back the original Sonic games for a fourth installation and the New Super Mario Bros games we’ve seen as of late.
Coinciding with these rumours, there was mention that Nintendo were working on a new 2D Mario game when some news was leaked from their investor’s presentation in January. Whilst no real details emerged concerning whatever it was they were working on; just a few days ago Nintendo registered a domain under ‘supermario4.com’.
If you go to the site itself, then you’ll just be re-directed to the official Nintendo website. However, this may be a hint as to what is next in Mario’s future. Whilst it doesn’t necessarily mean that there is a Super Mario 4 game coming either, since many major companies have been known to copyright and register domains under possible game names so as to stop people creating fraud websites or products.
If this is the new Mario game in the works, then it remains to be seen whether it will be released on Wii U as a launch title or on the 3DS.
