Nintendo registered a web domain for supermario4.com. The domain currently redirects you to Nintendo’s website but it does give a clue as to what Iwata announced ways back that they’re making a new side-scroller Mario title. More after the break.
At its last investor’s presentation in January, Nintendo announced it was working on a new 2D Mario adventure game. Outside of a release date prior to April 2013, no further details were given by company president Satoru Iwata. However just days ago, Nintendo registered a domain for ‘supermario4.com’.
The publisher isn’t attempting to hide this registry. A quick search shows that Nintendo of America controls the domain, and typing in the address will actually redirect to Nintendo’s website. It’s important to keep in mind that the registry doesn’t directly indicate the presence of a product – companies tie up URLs all the time – but it could mean something.
E3 is less than two months away, Nintendo seems to be gearing up for some huge announcements. Nothing official was made about this potential title though so keep your excitement for when Nintendo lets the word out.
