New Super Mario Bros. 2 Hitting 3DS Soon

by Jeff SmithApril 20, 2012

In 2006, the prospect of a new 2D Mario game was inspiring, and Nintendo somehow managed to live up to fan expectations that had been building since Super Mario World launched with the Super Nintendo. In 2009, Mario did it again. Now, he’s hoping to make the triple-jump in three dimensions with a new entry in the New Super Mario Bros. series, titled New Super Mario Bros. 2.

In a recent livestream event, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata pulled back the curtain on the newest Super Mario Bros. game. In addition to giving us an August release window, we also saw several screenshots of the game, which show off the usual Koopas, Goombas and castles alongside returning power-ups such as the Raccoon Tail and P-Wing from Super Mario Bros. 3. You can view them for yourself below.
