E3 2016 recently satisfied the hearts of many gamers through the announcements and teasers of major tech and gaming companies. However, the potential of a “Super Mario” sequel may have fans looking forward to next year’s E3.

In a report by GameSpot, Shigeru Miyamoto–known for creating the “Mario” franchise–was quoted in an interview as saying that “a new kind of Mario” may make its way to E3 2017. The report, which was first detailed by IGN, further quotes the creator by saying, “We’re always challenging ourselves to create something new, so hopefully you’ll see a new kind of Mario in about a year or two.”

If all goes according to plan, both websites share that Miyamoto is eyeing E3 2017 as ground for teasing or sharing new details about the upcoming “Mario”.

GameSpot recalls that it was “Super Mario 3D World” which served as the “last platforming Mario game”. The game was in part a sequel to “Super Mario 3D Land” and was released way back in 2013. Considering the timeline, releasing a new “Super Mario” by next year or 2018 seems logical.

While it is still a long way before fans can see the release of an “all new Mario”, gamers can marvel at the newly-released digital content for Nintendo Systems.
