Over-Under on 2011 Mario Games: 5
Speaking of the 3DS, this is yet another opportunity for the Big N to trot out 3D remakes of the plumber’s greatest hits. Not wasting any time, they already have Mario Kart 3DS in the works for the new handheld console, and we’re sure there will be appearances by other titles this year. The only Mario game officially in development for the Wii at the moment is Mario Sports Mix, which releases in early February, but traditionally it isn’t until E3 when Nintendo lets the cat out of the bag with their major titles. Expect three or more additional major titles featuring everyone’s favorite gaming mascot to be released before year’s end. Can anyone say New Super Mario Bros. Wii 2?
