Miyamoto to Show Wii U Mario at E3

But in what form?
Update: A Nintendo spokesperson has confirmed to Eurogamer.net that Nintendo will show off a Super Mario Bros. game for Wii U at E3.
According to Spanish newspaper El Mundo, we'll see the first Super Mario game for Wii U at E3 this year.
A translation of the original story sees Shigeru Miyamoto telling the newspaper he "anticipates" Nintendo will reveal its mascot's first HD outing on 5th June.
And that's it: the talismanic creator didn't say any more. While many of us expected Nintendo to show off Mario for Wii U at E3, this confirmation from Miyamoto only cements 5th June as the most exciting date of the gaming calendar. Or maybe that's just us.
Last year we saw New Super Mario Bros. Mii demonstrated alongside the console, but Nintendo was keen to stress it was just a demonstration of what's possible, and didn't confirm it was a game in active development. Will this Wii U Mario be New Super Mario Bros. Mii or something new? We don't know.
Is it too soon to say "come to Nintendo Life on 5th June for all your E3 news?" Nah, probably not.
