Looks like the Italian plumber is coming back from his vacation and making a long overdue return to the new Wii u system in october, as CVG has gathered. The president of Nintendo Satoru Iwata announced the game back in January during a Nintendo convention.
Nintendo are looking to recover from their recent struggle with some eagerly awaited first party releases including Pikmin 3, Wind waker HD and Wonderful 101 all in this year. Also in development are strong favourites like Mario Kart, Smash bros and Yoshi games.
This hasn't exactly being Wii U's golden year considering the popular brand only managed to shift 400,000 units in 2013 alone, but with a weak launch and few first party titles, Nintendo can't blame anyone but themselves. Nintendo fans should definitely be happy with the upcoming games nonetheless.
