There’s a rumor making the rounds that Fire Emblem studio Intelligent Systems is working on a Wii U entry for its popular Paper Mario series.
Nintendo fans were all ears yesterday when Emily Rogers said she’d share a rumor next week on an unannounced Wii U game through NeoGAF. After some prodding by many of her over 13,000 followers, she relented and revealed the game was a new Paper Mario.
Nintendo Life notes both Rogers and Robertson have been “on the money in the past.” One example was Robertson being told a free-to-play amiibo game was in the works. The title, Mini Mario & Friends amiibo Challenge, was announced one month later for Japan.
Even so, it’s best to file all of this as a rumor until an official announcement is made by Nintendo. If the game is currently undergoing localization as they say, it shouldn’t be too long before we hear something concrete.
