Nintendo president Satoru Iwata recently said Nintendo would use its E3 webcast to discuss "new Smash Bros., 3D Mario game, Mario Kart and other Wii U titles".

Sakurai is serving as producer on the new Smash Bros. game, which is a Wii U/3DS crossover in development at Namco Bandai

Official Nintendo Magazine associate editor Matthew Castle recently labelled the title his most anticipated game of E3, writing:

"Sakurai says he wants the 3DS version to be a more personalised, individual experience that feeds into a competitive public space on Wii U, and that would certainly play to the strengths of both systems.

"He's also tidying up online play - great news for those us that spent months of our lives hanging out in Brawl's notoriously flaky pre-match lobby.

"I'm more concerned about how much of the game we'll actually see. Every promise Iwata makes about showing the game at E3 is met with a cautious 'wait and see' from Sakurai."
