That's about all we know.

During its third quarter financial results meeting, Nintendo briefly made mention of a new Super Mario title coming to 3DS during its next fiscal year.

“Although there is no logo here, we are planning to release a totally new side-scrolling action Super Mario in 2D as a key title for the Nintendo 3DS in the next fiscal year,” said Nintendo president Satoru Iwata.

And that’s it.

    Awesome! It already sounds great. I loves me some good ol’ Mario side-scrolling.

    You know what’d be cool? A New Super Mario World game. Who wouldn’t love that? It’s the funnest Mario game.

    2D mario is a key title on a 3D system. got it.

      @howardmoonish: Heh, true.
      But it could be a 2D game with depth shown by the 3D effect.

      Still an interesting statement though.

      @TercaLumireis:

      I kind of am.

      I mean, how many main, dedicated Mario games did we get on the original DS?
