No New Mario in 2015, Says Nintendo

There will be no new Mario game in 2015, says Nintendo of America’s director of product marketing Bill Trinen.

That’s according to an interview in the Reno Gazette-Journal, which covered a wide range of topics, including Ultimate NES Remix, a general return to old-school gaming, and Nintendo’s game development philosophy.

Obviously, that doesn’t include Mario Maker, the upcoming Mario level editor for Wii U, but likely refers to a “major” Mario game ala Super Mario 3D World.

Though it contains that sad bit of news about Mario, it’s a positive interview overall and worth checking out if you’re a Nintendo fan. And if you’re bummed about Mario, remember there’s a new Zelda scheduled for this year…
