It all seems to have started after Macquarie Research said: “We expect Nintendo to learn its lessons from last year and provide more gamer-centric announcements at E3 such as a new Zelda or Mario title for the Wii.”
It certainly doesn’t sound to us like good, solid, fact-based information – it sounds suspiciously like speculation. But well founded, and oddly corporate, speculation. That’s the thing about speculation, though. It’s awfully exciting, sometimes more exciting than when the product actually arrives.
And you can’t deny, it would make sense to release a new Mario and/or Zelda game. It’s been two years since we slipped Mario Galaxy into our Wiis. Nintendo needs to understand – people need more Mario. I need more Mario. We all, need, more, Mario. Come on guys – let’s have a Mario Party! No? Just me? And Mario…Not you Luigi. Nobody needs more Luigi.
