Nintendo has more Mario games coming up soon for Wii U. Surprise!

OK, so it comes as no great shock that Nintendo is well underway developing a new 3D Mario title (from the team behind Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario 3D Land) as well as the next installment in the Mario Kart franchise, both destined for the company’s shiny new GamePad-powered console. Seriously, did you think they would just stop with New Super Mario Bros. U? Ummm… I don’t think so!

Again, like most of the Nintendo Direct announcements today, specifics about the games are still to be disseminated. What is important to note however is that the Wii U’s Mario Kart and 3D Mario titles will be appearing at E3 in playable form, which means both games should be fairly far along in development and hopefully close to release by the second half of this year. Of course, there’s still plenty of time between now and E3 so we’ll see what happens.

Back with more as soon as anything of greater substance is announced. Stay tuned, y’all!
