Nintendo Buys Supermario4.com Domain

 

The Internet is lit up today with the report that Nintendo has recently bought the domain supermario4.com. Is it possible that we are seeing a revival of the original NES Super Mario Bros. series?

Earlier this year, Nintendo Of Japan’s President Satoru Iwata announced to investors back in January that the company would be releasing a new “Totally new side-scrolling action Super Mario in 2D”  by the end of the next Fiscal year (March 2012-April 2013.)

This shouldn’t come as a big surprise to most. With games such Sonic the Hedgehog 4 and the recently announced return of Double Dragon, classic titles seem to be on the rise. The gaming industry is getting back to their roots, and that is a good thing. But no one will really know for sure until it is officially announced. Hopefully we will see something in a few months at E3.

Then again, Nintendo could just be buying up domains to avoid something like the Modern Warfare 3/ Battlefield 3 incident…

Would you like to see a new chapter in the original series? Or would you prefer to leave a masterpiece alone…

    Absolutely I would like to see a new entry! 2D Mario games still offer the best gameplay out there!

  2. The Adza says:

    Seeing as its not Supermariobros4 then I don’t think we will see a sequel in the original line of NES games. Although it would be an awesome addition to the 3DS and WiiU eShop.

    I’m sure they just bought it up just to buy it up. But to quote Luigi, “anything’s possible.”

  4. Artefacto says:

    Release a new HD console. Use a new 2D pixel SMB4 to sell it. Troll millions.

  5. Bill says:

    If gaming as we know it is going to continue for the indefinite future, then there is bound to be a SMB4 at some point down the line. Just like Megaman 11, Final Fantasy XV and Halo 7 will all exist at some point between now and infinity, it’s bound to happen that the most successful franchise of all time will see a fourth installment from its initial run.

  6. Harrison says:

    As much as I enjoy the possibility of this news, just a thought for Nintendo: Could you maybe, just maybe, develop a 2D love letter to Metroid or The Legend of Zelda on the 3DS? It worked before with New Super Mario Bros. Why not their other properties?

    i have got to agree they probably just bought it to stop others buying it, but i wish i had got there first and got that domain that would have been awesome. http://www.retro-nintendo.co.uk will do for now.
