Miyamoto Confident in New Super Mario Bros. Wii

A retailer briefing reveals a special appearance by Mario's creator.

Miyamoto made a special appearance at recent retailer briefing in Tokyo, according to andriasang.

The creator of Mario performed a live play session of the upcoming New Super Mario Bros. Wii for attendees of the event. During his play session, he was sure to mention that this would be "a Mario that will continue selling even after one year has passed."

Given the sales pattern of Galaxy in Japan, it's speculated that he was addressing possible retailer concerns of a more modest sell through of the upcoming multiplayer platformer.

This game is going to be huge, even more so considering the fact that New Super Mario Bros. DS still pops up on the NPD Top 10.

Did Miyamoto even have to say this? Honestly, given the success of the DS game, this one is destined to be huge.

Miyamoto didn't even have to show up; the retailers would have just had to play the game to know that they won't be able to keep it on their shelves.
