Game Infomer is one of the largest video game print publications in the world, and they don’t just let any game grace their cover. The next issue of the magazine will have the upcoming Wii U platformer New Super Mario Bros U on the cover, breaking a long streak without a Mario on the cover of the magazine. In fact, Game Informer says that it’s been 16 years since a Mario game was on the cover. The staff at the magazine got a chance to play the game at Nintendo’s headquarters, and the issue will feature 10 pages of New Super Mario Bros U details, including an interview with Shigeru Miyamoto. Check out the Mario cover below:
- Japan has worst week of gaming sales since 2001
- RymdResa is coming to Wii U
- Nintendo's marketing campaign for Splatoon will rival Mario Kart
- Don't forget the Splatoon demo on Wii U this weekend!
