Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has responded to recent criticism that the company is diluting the quality of its Mario titles by iterating too frequently on its most famous mascot.
It will ration the number of side-scrolling 2D Mario titles.
“We only create a New Super Mario Bros. title one [sic] per platform,” said Iwata in an interview with Kotaku. “I think we’ll probably go ahead and continue at that pace.
“That being said, that’s probably Miyamoto’s choice, so I can’t give you a 100 per cent guarantee that that’s the pace we’ll continue at.”
