Earlier this year Nintendo revealed that they are working on a 2D Mario game for the 3DS, we now know what that game will be – New Super Mario Bros. 2! Revealed just a few weeks before E3, New Super Mario Bros. 2 will butt stomp on to the 3DS at end of August bringing the much-loved Racoon suit with it.
But why am I not excited? probably because the game looks exactly like the original NSMB which was released six years ago and already feels old at this point. The screenshot above indicates that Nintendo will incorporate elements from Super Mario Bros. 3 in to the game but in my opinion they haven’t gone far enough.
With the recent revelation that Nintendo has registered a domain name for Super Mario 4 and are already hard at work on a new Mario title for the Wii-U, here’s to hoping that they’ll have something more exciting to show at E3.
