New Super Mario and Mario Kart announced for Wii U

You'll never guess what, right. Nintendo is making a new Super Mario game and a new Mario Kart game. Cross my heart! I can't give you any real useful details about either, okay, but I swear it's true, Nintendo really is making more games in those long, long, long-running series. May Queen Elizabeth herself strike me down if one word of a lie has crossed my lips.

The mysterious new Super Mario is coming from the team behind Super Mario Galaxy (pictured above) and Super Mario 3D Land. The 3D game will be playable at E3 this year, but that's all we know.

As for the new Mario Kart, we know even less. It'll be playable at E3. And that's all we know.
