    “A new Mario game and a big Kirby celebration will help make 2012 an especially great year for Nintendo fans,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Whether they’re playing at home on Wii or using Nintendo 3DS to have fun on the go, players can look forward to experiencing some of our biggest franchises in exciting ways.”

    This video takes an in-depth look at the New Super Mario Bros. 2 screenshots:

    Here’s some other related 3DS news:

    * Additionally, on April 25, a system update for Nintendo 3DS will give users new functions to explore. By downloading this update, users can create folders on the system’s HOME Menu to organize their content. This new feature is designed to make it easier than ever for players to access their favorite downloadable games, videos and demos. With this update, users will also get helpful recommendations in the Nintendo eShop for titles they may like. Other elements of the system update include the ability to update select software, such as a Mario Kart 7 update coming in mid-May that will resolve shortcut exploits in the game.

    * Also new, on April 28, for the Nintendo 3DS a recent series of Kid Icarus anime videos will return to the Nintendo Video service.

    * Furthermore, on May 20, there’s even more hand-held fun, with the launch of Mario Tennis Open for Nintendo 3DS, which invites players to step onto the court with Mario and his friends for fast-paced tennis action and a mix of remarkable new tennis challenges. Players can play as their own customized Mii characters and choose from approximately 200 special items, including rackets and tennis gear that not only enhance their character’s appearance but also modify their abilities. Players can also suit up their Mii characters with outfits that both resemble and offer the skills of popular Nintendo characters. They can also swing into action in local and wireless Internet multiplayer modes that let families and friends play together.

    All this 3DS news not withstanding, I’m very very excited about New Super Mario Bros. 2! :)

    How much do you want to play New Super Mario Bros. 2 on 3DS?

      Yeah, I’m a huge Mario fan too (which should be obvious from my avatar’s hat lol) and I’m glad that we’re both getting a 3D and 2D Mario on the 3DS within the span of a year! Best news of 2012 so far for me! :-D
