Four Super Mario games in the works according to leak

According to the rumor, Nintendo could be gearing up to release a main line entry, a spin-off, and more, with a reveal planned for September.

The Italian plumber is attracting plenty of attention with the record-breaking box office performance of The Super Mario Bros Movie. The animated film recently broke the $1 billion mark at the box office and is already one of the highest-grossing animated films of all time with a chance to make a bit more before it leaves movie theaters.

Two of the rumored titles are sports games.

With the success of the movie comes new rumors that Nintendo is preparing to release new games for the iconic franchise. According to the newest rumor, the company may be developing four Super Mario games. The games reportedly include a new mainline entry, spin-offs, and a remaster.

This new rumor comes from Zippo, a reliable Nintendo insider that has given us some accurate scoops in the past. Zippo claims that a new 2D Super Mario game is in development and will be released soon.  While the insider hasn’t provided details about the game, there have been previous reports that the title is coming to the Nintendo Switch in the future.

A new 2D mainline title is being developed by Nintendo.

The scooper also adds that a new Mario sports game is in the works. The title will likely be related to baseball based on the image shared. Sticking with the sports theme, a Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games game may launch sometime near the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.

Zippo also shared that Nintendo is working on a remaster of the GameCube RPG Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. The rumor suggests that the game is already finished and should be released on the Switch soon.

While these are just rumors right now, they will still surely excite fans of the video game franchise. It has been a while since we have had a proper mainline entry to the Super Mario series. The last game in the series is Super Mario 3D World which was originally released on the Wii U in 2013. The game was re-released on the Nintendo Switch bundled with Bowser’s Fury.

According to the rumor, Mario and Sonic will collaborate for an Olympic game.

If the rumors are true, it may be a while before Nintendo makes an announcement. The company will likely be announcing these new games at the upcoming Nintendo Live in September. It will be an interesting event if Nintendo does decide to announce four different Super Mario games.
