Nintendo Direct: New Super Mario Bros. 2 announced for 3DS

Nintendo Direct: New Super Mario Bros. 2 announced for 3DS:

Nintendo has unveiled the latest Mario game at today’s Nintendo Direct live stream. New Super Marios Bros 2 for the Nintendo 3DS was shown off via some in-game still screenshots. Not a lot is known about the game just yet, but we did notice that Raccoon Tail Mario will make his return from 3D Land and that the P Meter from Super Mario World 3 will also be returning, hinting that Mario will take it to the skies once again.




New Super Mario Bros. 2 has been announced for a Japanese release date of August. With any luck we’ll get it by the end of the year.

How do you feel about this change? Would you have preferred a follow up to Super Mario 3D Land instead? Or does this feel more “right” to you? Let us know in the comments.
