While the Wii U continues to struggle under low sales and a slight drought of games, CVG
are reporting that a 3D Mario may see a release by October on Nintendo's latest console.
Earlier this year we were treated to a Nintendo Direct that confirmed both a new 3D Mario and new Mario Kart title would be seeing an announcement at E3. The CVG report has now rumoured that the release for the new 3D Mario could be as soon as October after Nintendo president Satoru Iwata met with large retail chains around the world to restore faith in the system after many were having doubts due to low console sales.
While it isn't clear when exactly in October the release will be, Nintendo has previously stated that the company plans to have a heavy banner release slate after E3, which it intends to promote through various channels including social networking. Some of the titles that were previously mentioned by Iwata include Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101 and The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD Wii U.
Shelly Pearce, the PR director at Nintendo UK, has told CVG: "From July onwards we will launch a succession of Wii U titles and we will promote these extensively until the end of the year. Marketing activity will include TV, print, online and PR as well as comprehensive experiential and social media campaigns". Here is hoping for more Wii U titles to help showcase the true potential of the console.
