Nintendo has announced New Super Mario Bros. 2!
New Super Mario Bros. 2 is described as a “new, yet traditional” side-scrolling Mario game featuring Mario, Luigi and lots of other favourite characters from the Mario universe.
Just like Super Mario 3D Land, released last year on the Nintendo 3DS, the game is supposedly designed specifically for easy, “Pick up and play” style gameplay, ensuring that it’s roots are still intact and keeping the challenge to a minimum for younger (Or older) gamers.
If Super Mario 3D Land or even the prequels New Super Mario Bros. and New Super Mario Bros. Wii are anything to go by, the game is sure to be a well made and well polished Mario experience. What this could mean for older players is not certain.. will it be challenging enough and long enough to keep the “Hardcore” gamer playing? Will it feature anything new such as powerups, themes, enemies or even game modes? I’m sure we’ll find out when E3 finally arrives…
New Super Mario Bros. 2 is set to arrive some time in August, for the Nintendo 3DS system. Look forward to it!
