Exclamation Super Mario 4 might finally be announced at this year's E3

Hey folks!

As always, I missed you all and this forum, too!

So in this topic, I wanna share you about www.supermario4.com, which Nintendo registered the domain two years ago.

I think Nintendo will finally announce Super Mario 4 at this year's E3. Now if you're thinking "Wha--Why 'Super Mario 4'?". Well, look at the Mario Kart series, it was from Super Mario Kart to Mario Kart 8. Nintendo started to add numeric logos since Mario Kart 7 and that was two years ago. At that same year, Nintendo bought the domain supermario4.com. Miyamoto DID confirmed that Super Mario 4 is in the work but will reveal more details 'later'.

Super Mario 3D Land and Super Mario 3D World are 'Super Mario 3D' titles. What does that mean? It's basically the new 'New Super Mario Bros.' but now in 3D. Nintendo will release one New Super Mario Bros. title and one Super Mario 3D title for each Nintendo console and that has happened since Nintendo 3DS. For example, the next Nintendo handheld will have New Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario 3D Land 2. These two different types of Mario games are MAINLY targeting for casual players. Nintendo knows that their hardcore Mario fans deserve bigger games like Super Mario 64 and the Galaxy series. Super Mario 4 is that game for them.

Super Mario 64 (Super Mario 1), then Super Mario Sunshine (Super Mario 2), then Super Mario Galaxy series (Super Mario 3/3-2) and now Super Mario 4.

So what do you guys think? Will Nintendo finally announce Super Mario 4? I guess we'll have to wait and see!

I don't get what super mario 4 would be. Isnt super mariow world technicallly smb4? And if isnt just super mario bros, then it wouldnt make sense since we have all the super mario games after. I don't see this as anything at all.

Okay, then either way....there have been a lot more than 3 super mario games. 3d land and 3d world are both 3d super mario games.

2muchMario

Don't give Nintendo any ideas, man.

Obviously it means a new Paper Mario since Sticker Star doesn't count.

You are making the heavy assumption that just because they made 3d world, that now every new consolde they will continue to make a new "3d" game in a seperate line of 3d mario games, which makes no sense because it is made under the same team that made the galaxy games.

Keep in mind that these are all what I think Nintendo are doing. But I guess we'll have to wait and find out at this year's E3.

Nintendo is still keeping supermario4.com alive for a reason (a big one, that is).

You mean to tell me that not a single New Super Mario game can be considered 'Super Mario 4?'

No, the New Super Mario Bros. has its own series.

So basically:
- Super Mario Bros. series: SMB1, SMB2, SMB3, SMB4:World (Yoshi's Island departed from that series to have its own)
- Super Mario series: SM64, SM Sunshine, SM Galaxy series, SM4
- New Super Mario Bros. Portable series: NSMB1, NSMB2
- New Super Mario Bros. Console series: NSMB Wii, NSMB U
- Super Mario 3D series: SM3DL, SM3DW

I think it's possible that a new Mario could be announced at E3. But I really doubt it'd be called Super Mario 4. It'd probably have a name associated with it ( like New/Galaxy/Sunshine). The only Mario games that strictly follow a number for each sequel are Mario Party and the last two Mario Karts.

I think we're just referring to it as 'Super Mario 4' because there's nothing else to call it for the time being.

I don't care if people think we've had too much Mario, I want a 3D Super Mario game, but not another 'New' or '3D Land/World' one.

Why would it be Super Mario 4? It wouldn't make sense for 4 to come after 64. 64 is a bigger number than 4.

After reading the whole thread, mohdfikree's idea isn't crazy at all! Another 3D Mario game where you collect stars sounds like a cool idea!

Except that it's unlikely that it would be called "Super Mario 4". That's probably a codename or something.

It might not be at the next E3 though.

I'm sorry, but I hope this isn't true. What Nintendo needs is any franchise BUT Mario right now. The Wii U already has 3 Super Mario games. We need a Metroid, Star Fox, Golden Sun, Mother/Earthbound, F-Zero, Nintendo/Advance Wars, etc. These are Nintendo franchises that need to be resurrected and treated well, as well as some new IPs.

Nintendo is just overdoing Mario like crazy, like Microsoft is depending too much on Halo. There are other more-worthy series out there, and fans are begging for them.

Honestly, who here really wants another Super Mario game right now? I can go a couple years without another Super Mario game, honestly.

If it was an absolutely brand new 3d game in the line of the other 3d ones like sunshine and galaxy that actually felt completely new, I would be okay with it. Otherwise not for awhile.

since you asked, i do

i find the series to be very consistently high quality, while some series you name, such as golden sun, star fox and f-zero, are often rather middling
