New 3D Mario Action Game in the Works
This morning’s Nintendo Direct had plenty of news, not least of which was the announcement of two new Mario-centric games: a new 3D action game from the people behind the Super Mario Galaxy series for the Wii U. Not only that, but there’s going to be a new Wii U Super Mario Kart. And you know what? I can say with confidence that they will both probably be totally friggin’ awesome.
Why do I say that? Because the Galaxy series was epically good. And so was Super Mario 3D Land…by far one of the best new Mario games in years. And Mario Kart 7 on the 3DS was ALSO fantastic. With solid online multiplayer options for the Wii U, there’s a good bet that the new Mario Kart will be very good. My biggest hope? That they manage to include voice chat. Conversely, if they fail to include voice chat, I’ll be extremely disappointed. Like, FOR SERIOUS.
Both games will be on display at E3 this summer. Can’t wait. What would you like to see in a new Mario action game? Should we just hope it’s Super Mario Galaxy 3? Or something brand new? MAYBE THIS MARIO GOES THROUGH TIME! Mushroom-powered DeLorean anybody?
