Nintendo announces 'New Super Mario Bros. 2' and major 3DS firmware update



Nintendo has announced New Super Mario Bros. 2 for 3DS. The game will be out in August in Japan, and is in the same 2D/3D style as the previous New Super Mario Bros.games on DS and Wii. We have little to go on in the way of gameplay specifics, but Nintendo will undoubtedly show more of the game at E3 in June.The company also announced a major 3DS firmware update coming April 25th that will enable folder organization (finally!) and allow game patches and upgrades to be issued easily.

New downloadable Pokemon software is on the way and will tie into the Black 2 andWhite 2 games that are coming on June 23rd in Japan. Pokemon AR Searcher is a shooting game that lets you "capture" Pokemon with your console's camera, and Pokedex Pro is an expanded version of the previous Pokemon database software.

Also on the way this year is a 20th anniversary compilation of Kirby games for Wii, along with a confirmed autumn launch in Japan for Tobidase: Doubutsu no Mori, the 3DS iteration of the Animal Crossing series. Most of the solid information in the broadcast was for the Japanese market, though importers may be interested to note confirmed July release dates for Taiko no Tatsujin 3DS featuring girl group AKB48,Rune Factory 4, and Etrian Odyssey IV.

I like the new system update. Finally the maka wuhu exploit in mario kart 7 will be fixed soon(which will make online play a bit more enjoyable) and folders will by quite useful with the ~50 downloads on my homescreen.

I also already posted about the mario part.

The new system update is available now. Along with the two features announced last week, it also seems to have brought a change to the look of the eshop.

Most likely. As this fall/winter they will want to push wii u sales, not wii sales.

Looks like I'll be trading in my old DS Lite and picking up the 3DS. Totally worth it just for the Mario games.

They're probably concentrating on 3DS and WiiU games at this point
