Nintendo has confirmed that it will show a new Mario game for Wii U at E3 along with the highly anticipated next instalment in the Pikmin series.

Nintendo legend Shigeru Miyamoto told Spanish publication El Mundo, via Eurogamer, that he has been working on a new Pikmin game that capitalizes on the Wii U's high definition capabilities.

We've heard rumours of a new Pikmin game since 2008, but this is the first time it has been mentioned in the lead up to E3 by Nintendo.

Meanwhile, Miyamoto revealed that a new Super Mario game will be announced for Wii U at E3 in June.

It was later confirmed by a Nintendo statement.

"In a recent interview, Mr. Miyamoto confirmed that a new Super Mario Bros. game for the Wii U system will be shown at this year's E3 Expo. We'll have more to announce about our plans for the E3 Expo at a later date."

Well of course there has to be a mario game! The question is, what kind will it be?

Will we finally be able to make out all the hairs on marios 'stashe?

And as for pikmin, the idea of a high resolution world for captain olimar... I can't wait to see what a pikmin garden looks like!

Don't dissapoint me, Miyamoto. I expect to see great things!
Please not another galaxy type game where you run across flipping platforms and crap floating in space. I want to see gameplay and worlds like Mario 64 and Mario Sunshine.
I'll be disappointed if its another side scroller too, so over them.
awesome, a new pikmin game. hopefully it has old Nintendo treasures like pikmin 2.

If they make a mario game it needs to be like Super Mario 64.
Seems likely at the moment it'll be a side-scrolling game.
I think the high definition graphics for the new Pikmin game are going to be really amazing, considering the graphics demo we saw at 2011 E3 with the bird. High resolution plants and nature could definitely look awesome.

Also hoping for another amazing soundtrack. Pikmin's was so relaxing. :P
