Nintendo’s popular console, the Nintendo Switch, has captured the hearts of gamers worldwide, with its impressive sales figures and a diverse library of games. However, fans have noticed a scarcity of new Mario titles for the platform. While Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has been a hit, being a remastered version of the original Wii U game, and Super Mario Odyssey being the sole entirely new Mario adventure on the system, it appears that the iconic plumber has been somewhat overshadowed.

But fear not, as recent rumors suggest that Nintendo has not forgotten about its beloved mascot. According to a renowned Nintendo insider known as Zippo, several Mario games are reportedly in development, with some nearing completion. Zippo, in his blog, poses the question “Where’s The Next Mario Game?” and proceeds to list all the information he has gathered.

It seems that fans can anticipate two sports-themed Mario titles on the horizon, one centered around baseball and the other based on the Olympic Games. Additionally, there are whispers of a remastered edition of Paper Mario 2: The Thousand Year Door, which is apparently nearing completion. Finally, a new 2D Mario adventure is said to be in the works as well.

While none of this information has been officially confirmed, it is worth noting that Nintendo is one of the few companies that can effectively keep secrets. Zippo has a track record of accurate insider information in the past, adding credibility to the rumors. Thus, fans cautiously remain optimistic about the possibility of these exciting new Mario games coming to fruition on the Nintendo Switch.
