First Mario 3DS Screen Released

Despite being mentioned by Shigeru Miyamoto several weeks ago, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has confirmed a Mario game is indeed in the works for the Nintendo 3DS.

The team behind the Mario Galaxy games are behind the wheel, and a proper reveal is expected at E3. As an interesting side note, the logo for the game has a tail poking out of the side, possible hinting at the return of the Tanooki Suit from Super Mario Bros. 3. The first screen can be found below.

  1. Looks great and all, but a different take on the universe like Super Mario Sunshine would be nice… for once…

  2. This makes me wish I had money for a 3DS even more. Stupid Mario…

  3. The hint at Super Mario Bros. 3 drew my attention. To me it still is the best Mario game ever.

    • Mine’s Super Mario World, followed by Super Mario Bros. 3.
      I just that game was too incredible. =]
      Glad the Galaxy team is making this. Super Mario Galaxy 2 was incredible.

      • I say incredible a bit too much methinks.

      • Mario 3 was awesome :) i love the secret whistles :) and the tanooki :)

  4. Can’t stand Mario! All the ones I’ve tried have bored me stupid! The only good game he appears in is Donkey Kong!

    • OMG :( Blasphemy….. Mario is God, well he is 1000% better than a certain blue hedgehog
