Super Mario 3DS announced

Galaxy developer at the helm, Iwata confirms

Nintendo's just announced a new Super Mario Bros. game for 3DS.

Super Mario Galaxy's Tokyo development studio is currently hard at work on the title and more information will be revealed at E3 this year.


The news comes via Nintendo president Satoru Iwata's on-going GDC keynote, which you can read live updates from here.

Iwata showed a logo and images of the Mario title, which looks similar in style to Galaxy, albeit without the stars and planets.

Iwata told a Japanese newspaper this week Nintendo is experimenting with gameplay where Mario will run "into the screen" and strike blocks that are floating in the air.

"We're making software that is packed with the kinds of surprises and enjoyment that the 3DS can deliver," Iwata said.

Nintendo's official release said: "The announced 3D Super Mario game will feature traditional Mario game play and will fulfill the dream of Nintendo video game designer (and Mario creator) Shigeru Miyamoto to bring true depth and distance into the game's mechanics.

"The game is being developed by the same Nintendo team that created the Wii console hits Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2."
