With the launch of Mario Kart 8 only a month away Nintendo EAD Tokyo have revealed that they have a brand new Mario title in development but have sadly refrained from revealing information surrounding the new title.
In an interview with EDGE, Nintendo EAD Tokyo’s team and Producer Yoshiaki Koizumi confirmed that they are working on another Mario title but couldn’t say whether it was for the Wii U or 3DS. “That’s still a secret!” he says. “I can tell you, though, that we’ve already started approaching our next challenge,” said Koizumi. “There’s still a lot more room for discovery and invention, and we’ll continue to propose new and exciting game mechanics going into the future.”
If the next Mario game was to be a Wii U game, co-director and EAD Tokyo team leader Kenta Motokura says his team “might need to make even more use of the GamePad.”
The last Mario title released for the Wii U was Super Mario 3D World which launched in November and the last Mario title for Nintendo 3DS was Mario & Luigi Dream Team which launched last Summer. Stay tuned to n3rdabl3 for more Nintendo and Mario news, soon.
