Super Mario Galaxy 3 and Super Mario Sunshine HD could be in development for the Nintendo Switch according to the filmography of Charles Martinet.
Spotted by Segmentnext, Martinet’s IMDB page had both titles listed to be released in 2016/2017, with Super Mario Galaxy 3 said to be in post-production. At the moment of writing, both titles have been removed from the IMDB page, but we managed to grab a screenshot through the page’s cache, which can be seen below.
Charles Martinet, the “voice of Mario” in the West, has been the voice of Mario and several other characters, including Wario and Luigi, since the 90’s.
Please note that IMDB pages can be edited at will, and we’re uncertain how reliable Martinet’s page is at this point. Still, it’s interesting that the references to Super Mario Galaxy 3 and Sunshine HD have now been removed.
The Nintendo Switch is slated for a release in March 2017, and Nintendo will reveal more about its console during a special Nintendo Switch Presentation in January.
In a presentation to financial analysts today in Tokyo, Nintendo Co., Ltd. president Tatsumi Kimishima announced that major details regarding the company’s new Nintendo Switch home gaming system will be shared at the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017. This will be an event for invited media, financial analysts and trade partners in Tokyo that will be globally livestreamed on Jan. 12, U.S. time. The presentation will include the launch date and pricing for Nintendo Switch, as well as a look at the lineup of games currently in development.
Recent rumors suggest that a new 3D Mario is to be released at the Switch’s launch, and the references to Super Mario Galaxy 3 and Super Mario Sunshine HD could well be related to that. Additional Switch titles might include a Super Smash Bros and Bayonetta port, although these probably won’t be available at launch.
