What does Mario have in store for us?

Nintendo producer Yoshiaki Koizumi has revealed that work has already begun on the next Super Mario game, but he is unable to give any information about which console it is coming to.

Speaking to EDGE in a feature about the making of Super Mario 3D World, Koizumi refused to be drawn on which system would receive Mario's next adventure:

That’s still a secret! I can tell you, though, that we've already started approaching our next challenge. There’s still a lot more room for discovery and invention, and we’ll continue to propose new and exciting game mechanics going into the future.

However, 3D World co-director and EAD Tokyo team leader Kenta Motokura did reveal that if the game was to arrive on the Wii U, he and his staff would need to utilise the Wii U GamePad even more effectively than before.

The release of this new title is obviously still some way off in the future, but what are your hopes? Would you like to see the 3DS get some more love, or do you think Nintendo should aim to give the Wii U another solid-gold classic to bolster its commercial fortunes?
