Nintendo likes to plan way far in advance. This time we get news that they have registered the name Super Mario Bros. 4. Which is kinda weird seeing as the title Super Mario World on the Super Nintendo in Japan was titled #4. This all is npot news because at Nintendo's board meeting in January they announced they were working on a new 2D platformer. Is it for the 3DS or is it for the new WiiU? All we know now is that it looks like it will be released around April 2013.
The supermariobros4.com domain name is already registered to Nintendo and it transfers you to their main site. Look for something new and original when it comes to mario. They almost always do a great job over there, almost (see: Virtua Boy). Check out the box art from 1992, you can clearly see the 4:
