I distinctly remember him saying that it might be "the right time" to bring a third Mario brother into the mix. This would obviously be huge to the series. What do you guys think? Is it too late to reveal that there's actually a third Mario brother? Could it be just the right thing to add something fresh to the series?

EDIT: Here's the quote from March 2013.

“I don’t know what types of games I’m going to make in the future… Perhaps there will come a day when Mario needs a third brother, and so at that point maybe we’ll create him.”
- Shigeru Miyamoto

So, not necessarily soon. I was off a bit.

The first bro wears red, second bro wears green, and the third bro wears silver.

I think it wouldn't be "believable" for us older cats. It's been like 30 years and no third brother...

As long as his name is Gabriel Mario.

From a game design perspective sure. New characters mean new gimmicks and new abilities.

From a character point of view, it would be nice for them to flush out the existing characters first.

Joe Mario. But he isn't a plumber. He's unemployed, lazy, and plays video games all day. It's when the series will go meta.

His name is Ezio. He's got heart, no doubt, but he's a bit more violent than his Bros.

If Nintendo did ANYTHING at all, including releasing a new game or announcing a new game, trolls would call them desperate.

We wouldn't need a third Mario Bro if Nintendo would give Mario some character. Look how believable Luigi is in Dark Moon. I want a game where Mario is as fleshed out as that.

The thing is Mario is an everyman character so they kind of can't flesh him out. His shtick is that he's hyper-generic so he can be used in everything and the other characters stand out more.
