Nintendo Releasing 'Totally New' 2D Mario Game

In the last few months, Nintendo put out a couple of Mario games — namely, Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7. But Nintendo isn't finished. There's another Mario title on the horizon; it wasn't publically known until today.

At a recent analyst meeting, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata explained that Nintendo is working on many titles for the 3DS, and the handheld should see a steady stream of new games. Upcoming titles include Luigi's Mansion 2, Paper Mario and Mario Tennis, among many, many more from non-Nintendo studios.

When Iwata showed this image, he said, "Although there is no logo here, we are planning to release a totally new 2D side-scrolling action Super Mario as a key title for the Nintendo 3DS in the next fiscal year."

Iwata did explain any further about this previously unannounced, "totally new" Super Mario title, but he did point out that it was a "2D side-scrolling". Expect more details at a later date.

    Please for the love of god be a follow up to Super Mario World. I want a HUGE map & level jam packed with secrets, hidden routes, & an emphasis on exploration. Its been too long. No more Mario for noobs please

      This would be great....however Im more intrigued by a "totally new" Mario game.

    This guy. *sigh* Tries to list all the Nintendo made games in that picture and overlooks Fire Emblem. -_-

      The very first one is Fire Emblem.

    Probably just means a New Super Mario Bro's type with a bit of 3DS depth, I found MarioLand 3DS really annoying without the 3D on, This title probably will make no difference 3D or no.

    Not So New Super Mario Bros

    Please let Camelot be doing Mario Tennis... the GBA one was amazing
