Nintendo announces New Super Mario Bros.2 for the 3DS!
During last night's Nintendo Direct live-stream, company president Satoru Iwata revealed the much talked about 2D Mario sidescroller that's currently in development for the 3DS.
Is it Super Mario 4? Nope. But it is a Super Mario sequel.
New Super Mario Bros.2 will launch in both North America and Japan (and likely every other territory) this coming August and that's pretty much all we know about it at the moment.
Well, we do know that the power leaf will be added back into the mix and that the Raccoon Mario suit (which hasn't been seen since Super Mario Bros.3) will be making a (fully welcomed) return as well. Oh and there will also be a mysterious new power-up, which will turn Mario into Gold Mario, which looks like a new variation of Metal Mario from Super Mario 64. What can Gold Mario do? Other than shine and glisten, I don't have the foggiest idea. But I do know that much like the power leaf in Super Mario 3D Land, Bowser's minions will be able to get their hands on whatever this golden mcguffen is and become Gold Koopas or Goombas or whatever else.
Here's a few screens that Nintendo of America shared on it's Twitter page:

WHOOT! There u go Nintendo! Give us more Mario!
I don't know about u guys, but I'm just waiting for some Paper Mario 3DS news. Although I've gotta say, Nintendo has me thinking about getting this and the new Mario Tennis as well.... I wish I had more money...
any new mario is good news to me
More reason for me to stop being lazy and get a job so I can buy a 3DS.. This game should just be called Super Mario Bros. 2 seeing as Mario 2 is actually all just a dream, not a game. Pro's only need Fireflowers.
This excites me as fuck. P-wing alone make it worth buying. And Racoon Mario is awesome! I almost like him more than Tanooki. Likely gonna pre-order this today!
What happens when the "new" super mario bros. series is considered old? I think it might cause a black hole.
I think maybe cuse the its the second handheld NSMB game,the original on ds and the wii verison did had difrences.
Gold Mario? Looks like it's just a freeze frame with him getting a power star. Usually that makes him change colors so...
Anyway, isn't this technically New Super Mario Bros 3? First was New Super Mario Bros on the DS Then was New Super Mario Bros Wii on the Wii Now it's New Super Mario Bros 2 on the 3DS.
That's 3 games, not 2... Gyahh... Nintendo is so bad at keeping their sequels straight!
Can't go wrong with a new Mario, but am I the only one starting to get the feeling that Mario games are starting to be a little too frequent for their own good? I mean jeez, in less than three years we've gotten New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Super Mario 3D Land, and New Super Mario Bros. 2....
I wonder what the raccoon leaf will look like in this one? They used it for the tanooki instead of the doll in 3d land, which should have recreated Mario Land Levels when they were remaking classic levels. Seriously, A BOOMERANG Flower?
Gold Mario? I thought Mario just got a star.
Mario is a property of Nintendo...why would they release it on steam? that would be stupid business move.
Strange but for some reason, I'm not too thrilled by this so far.
But... it looks almost the same as the first one. You'd think a 2D Mario game on the 3DS would have some cool background/foreground action to keep it interesting, but it doesn't even look like it has that. :|.
woo! Another 3DS Mario game! I've already completed SM3DLand in a matter of two weeks so I'm gona be sure to mark off two weeks to dedicate to NSMB2 this August aha :D
