Super Mario 3DS announced at the GDC

Iwata teases 3DS Mario with more to come at E3

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata used some of the time in his keynote speech to this year's Games Developers' Conference.

He didn't reveal much about the title other than a few preliminary screenshots showing the familiar 3D Mario we've known and loved since Super Mario 64.

The first 3DS Mario game is being developed by the same team that has been doing such sterling work on the Super Mario Galaxy series on the Wii.

The logo for the game also seemed to have a raccoon tail growing from it to which Iwata commented: "You may wonder what this indicates. We will reveal this at E3 this year." Roll on E3.

Thanks Eurogamer.
