While Nintendo’s reveal today was primarily the unveiling of the console itself and what it actually looked like, there were some other surprises in store for those who kept a watchful eye. There were several games shown off in action that were being played on what we now know is called the Nintendo Switch, and one of them appeared to be a new Mario game.
You can check out the reveal trailer for the game at the bottom of this post, but at around the 2:10 mark in the video we see a woman playing a Mario game. It certainly didn’t look like any Mario game released previously, so the previous rumors that Nintendo would be releasing a new Mario game next year seems to have turned out true.
Unfortunately, it was all part of a montage and we didn’t get any actual details on the game, but the footage is nonetheless great news for Mario fans.
Nintendo Switch will launch in March of 2017, but we’re still waiting for official pricing, specs and a concrete release date. Check out the announcement video below.
