FGN has also confirmed that Mario is on his way to the GC as well. Shigeru Miyamoto confirmed it at an E3 press conference.
“Hopefully I?ll be able to show you something this summer.”
Miyamoto went on to explain that the game will be different to what fans of the intriguingly moustachioed plumber are used to. In order to maintain appeal with an audience that has grown up with the franchise, the gaming guru explained that Mario’s design needs to “grow up.” Would Mario be able to carry a railgun? From that last pitiable suggestion, you’ve probably already concluded that no more details were given.
I had a feeling that the big ‘N’ was holding back a few big games for Space World.
