Today, Nintendo held their first of two E3 conferences. Today's revolved around their new system, the Wii U. As always, Nintendo had many new titles to reveal, such as Pikmin 3 and Nintendo Land. Of course, our favorite plumber was not left behind, with Nintendo announcing several new Mario titles for fans to enjoy, such as New Super Mario Bros. U, New Super Mario Bros. 2, Game & Wario and the previously unnamed Paper Mario: Sticker Star and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.
New Super Mario Bros. U: A new, side-scrolling adventure featuring Mario, Luigi, Toad and your Mii character! Step inside the Mushroom Kingdom and explore new worlds, new power-ups and new ways to play.
New Super Mario Bros. 2: Bowser has once again kidnapped Princess Peach, but this time, Mario has another objective. The Mushroom Kingdom is bursting with more gold coins than ever, and it's up to players to collect as many as possible.
Paper Mario: Sticker Star: On the day of the annual Sticker Fest, Bowser decides to pull a prank and scatters six Royal Stickers across the land. To retrieve these mysterious, magical stickers, which are now stuck onto Bowser and his underlings, Mario sets off on an adventure with Kersti, a sticker fairy, visiting prairies, deserts, forests, snowy mountains and volcanoes around the world.
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon: Follow Luigi as he explores multiple mansions, solves a variety of new puzzles and captures new ghosts. Armed with the new Poltergust 5000, Luigi must complete a number of missions assigned to him by Professor E. Gadd.
Game & Wario: A return to the long-running WarioWare series, Game & Wario (working title) features a collection of games that use only the Wii U GamePad controller.
Along with these new games, there were several other nods to the Mario series throughout the presentation. One of which was from Nintendo Land, a game following in the style of Wii Sports and Wii Play. The game will feature various subgames based off of different Nintendo franchises, such as Donkey Kong's Crash Course and Luigi's Ghost Mansion, based off of Donkey Kong and Luigi's Mansion respectively. As well, New Super Mario Bros.'s Mega Mushroom made a surprise appearance in Namco Bandai's trailer for Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
