Nintendo's iconic plumber almost stole the spotlight in the upcoming Wii U third-person shooter Splatoon.
"When we talked about the possibility of it being Mario, of course we could think of the advantages: anybody would be willing to touch it as soon as we announced that we had the new Mario game. But at the same time, we had some worries. If it were Mario, we wouldn't be able to create any new IP."
Do you think Nintendo should have given it the Mario skin instead or are you glad the company is pushing a new IP?
