3DS Super Mario Bros. confirmed by Miyamoto

Just in case the very existence of the 3DS wasn't enough to convince you that there would eventually be a traditional Super Mario game for it, Nintendo has made it official. In the company's latest Iwata Asks feature, Mario maestro Shigeru Miyamoto confirmed that a new Super Mario Bros. game is indeed underway for 3DS -- that's in addition to the upcoming iterations of Mario Kart and Paper Mario for the new handhled. "In the interests of adopting new technology for the Super Mario Bros. tradition, I am now making a new Super Mario Bros. game for the Nintendo 3DS system," Miyamoto revealed.

"I want to show everyone as soon as possible what the new Super Mario Bros. will be like on the Nintendo 3DS," he added. We're going to go out on a limb and guess the new game will involve Mario and a daring royal rescue.
