Nintendo registers Super Mario 4 domain

Posted on April 14, 2012 - 9:40am by Ryan Conway

Earlier this week, it was reported that Nintendo had registered a domain name for what is perhaps one of the most long awaited sequels in gaming history. What is this domain name?!

Nintendo could have merely acquired the domain in order to prevent someone else from using it, which is a possibility, as the company has done this in the past. However, it should be noted that the domain has been activated ... even if it's currently being used it to redirect users to Nintendo's country registry page.

Since Nintendo is currently keeping quiet about this registry, all we can do is speculate on what this could possibly bring about.

It could be a code name for the 2D Mario sidescroller that Iwata previously hintend at for the 3DS or a new 3D Mario for the Wii U. Or Nintendo could just be protecting its IP.

But for now, we'll just have to wait and see. 

Personally, I hope it's the direct Mario 3 sequel that Stuttering Craig  has always wanted. Even if it would be a tad confusing.
