In a move everyone expected, Nintendo's enigmatic developer, Shigeru Miyamoto, has confirmed the Big-N will have playable versions of Mario and Pikmin for Wii U at this year's E3.

Miyamoto confirmed the news when speaking to Spanish gaming site, El Mundo, and Nintendo PR has since gone on to doubly confirm his plans, revealing that a new Pikmin game will definitely be shown at the conference and that the Mario title will be based on the "Super Mario Bros Experience" demo that was shown at last year's E3.

According to the El Mundo report (via CVG), Miyamoto also hasn't given up on the Wii Music concept saying "I want to do more with that idea".

So, not surprising at all, though I'd argue we definitely need to see something a bit meatier than any of the above, from a core gamer perspective, to really bite into Nintendo's new console. Metroid, Zelda et al - unite!

I'm hoping that Retro's new title is announced and demoed. Pikmin is a pleasant surprise though.

F*** how good would a Retro Wii U Metroid be.

Yeah, that's what I'd like to see too. They were given Metroid, and they absolutely nailed it. Then they were given Donkey Kong Country, and nailed that too. I'm confident that they would make an amazing Zelda game.

Yeah, it'd be great, but honestly, I hope they're working on something else. They've already made 3 Metroid games, I'd like to see something different from them.

They were quoted about a year ago as working on "a project everyone wants us to do." That doesn't really clear it up, as I don't recall large numbers of people hoping for any specific IP.

I want a side scrolling metroid title like they used to be only with spiffy graphics.
