New Super Mario 2D Game To Jump Onto 3DS


The portly plumber is definitely making his presence known on the 3DS. Coming off a holiday season that showcased the mustached hero in two feature titles, Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has confirmed that Mario will star in a brand new title that shares the 2D gameplay style of the New Super Mario Bros. series.

During a financial briefing, Iwata stated that Nintendo is “planning to release a totally new side-scrolling action Super Mario in 2D as a key title for the Nintendo 3DS in the next fiscal year.” This puts the release date of the title in a window spanning from April 1, 2012 to March 31, 2013.

What do you think of Nintendo’s big announcement?
