During an earnings briefing in Tokyo today, Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata revealed plans to release "a totally new side-scrolling action Super Mario in 2D" for the 3DS in the coming fiscal year. That means a release between April 1, 2012 and March 31, 2013.
15 million systems sold, a solid library of upcoming third-party games (shown off at source) and more Mario on the way? The 3DS sure has come a long way since its launch, not that I ever paid much attention to the doomsaying.
