New Super Mario Bros 2 springs into view for the 3DS

3DS gamers to get more Mario action this year

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has revealed that the 3DS will be getting yet another Mario game this autumn in the form of New Super Mario Bros 2.

The released screenshots seem to show that the game will not deviate all that much from the formula of its DS and Wii predecessors but time around Mario will have access to the Tanooki suit.

Iwata did say that the game was to be designed as much more of a drop-in drop-out experience which would seemingly be ideal for Nintendo's handheld.

New Super Mario Bros 2 will be released in Europe this coming August.

Thanks Nintendo Gamer.
