Is there something to the texts in Super Mario Wii U? photo
Is there something to the texts in Super Mario Wii U?
by Jonathan Holmes

We're just about an hour out from the Pre-E3 Nintendo Direct 2012, and people are already getting into a deep analysis of the scant bits of new game footage that was shown. In Nintendo's bizarre new video showing off Miiverse functionality, there were a few seconds of footage of what looked like a new 2D Mario title. We saw a new, stranger background, a Super Mario World-style overworld map, and some Miiverse text messages from other players that might hold clues to what other features the game has in store. 

They include talk of a "baby Yoshi that balloons up to carry you," talk of an achievement looking thing for beating a level in less than 100 seconds, and how "...being a flying squirrel is WAY more fun than it should be."

This could all be references to hypothetical aspects of gameplay, but with E3 just a couple of days away, I wouldn't be surprised if these are legit leaks regarding the new Mario title for consoles.  A flying squirrel would make a lot of sense for a Mario game, as would baby Yoshis. I'm sure we'll find out for sure what's going on here soon enough.
