There are no 3D Zelda or Mario games in the Wii U's launch line-up but Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has assured fans that release dates for both games will be announced in the future.
The Zelda Wii U tech demo was one of the first things Nintendo showed off when they unveiled the console back in 2011 but we have seen nothing of a 3D Mario game.
Instead, Nintendo are focusing their efforts of New Super Mario Bros U, the Wii U launch game that marks Mario's HD debut. It is a 2D platformer but after the brilliance of the Mario Galaxy games, Nintendo fans are looking forward to seeing how they follow it up with the next 3D game.
Well, as Iwata told IGN, you'll have to wait and see. "We will announce the launch schedules for new 3D Zelda and Mario games in the future, but this is not the right opportunity for me to indicate when we will make such announcements," he said.
Yet while he understands that the Nintendo games are what fans are looking forward to, Iwata understands that Wii U needs more than Mario and Zelda to succeed.
"Our first party software alone can't be enough to appeal to the different tastes of all game fans. The decision of Nintendo that it will publish the two software titles from Platinum Games is one answer to this challenge."
Which are you most looking forward to? 3D Mario or 3D Zelda?
