During a video presentation hosted by Nintendo’s president, New Super Mario Brothers 2 was announced for the 3DS this August. A North American release date was also hinted at for this summer.
A sequel to the smash-hit New Super Mario Brothers on DS, it will be a 2D sidescroller… but in 3D.
This game will see the return of the Power Leaf, allowing players to charge up their powers and fly. This will be the Power-Up like the one in Super Mario Bros. 3, not like the Tanooki Suit in Super Mario 3D Land.
