E3 2011: Super Mario for 3DS channels Mario 3 awesomely and comes out this year

Teased at GDC this year, a whole new Mario game made for the 3DS was announced but was painfully short on info. Fortunately, everything changed at today’s Nintendo press conference. Like it was plucked out of the minds of every Mario 3 lover, it looks like a fully 3D Mario that’s incredibly reverent to Mario’s history. And yes, there is a Tanooki suit.

Not to put it lightly but we can’t wait to play this game and are nearly ready to stop writing right now and run to Nintendo’s booth. Just look at all those amazing characters and enemies from Mario’s past. Stay tuned for more info as we learn it.

    Ah Mario, why did I play you all those years ago and be sucked into your fantasy world over and over and over again. This is the reason, along with Mario Kart, that I'll finally grab a 3DS.

    Just had a Mari-orgasm

    @QWERTY commander The Tanooki Suit was always full bodied, even in SMB3. I think you might be thinking of the Super Leaf that gave you the raccoon power. Two different things.

    I'm...I'm....I'm so happy!!!! I want gameplay footage right now!

    I know I'm being picky, but I don't like how the Tanooki Suit is full-body instead of just a tail and ears as seen in SMB3.

    Tanooki suit + P wing = Instant Win!

    While im not impressed with some of those wii quality wii sports shots that new zelda HD looks fucking amazing. I don't think I'm alone in thinking Nintendo has finally given up on waggle and concentrated on gaming. That controller looks wretched but at least you won't have to waggle it! Also yay Mario 3DS! Hammer Bros. suit next please!

    Nintedo is always my personal favorite to watch at E3, because they always do something kind of fun. Plus, Nintendo is like the Disney of games... they have an almost "magical" quality. Sony and Microsoft bore the crap out of me every year as they talk like typical business men at a meeting.

    Nintendo dominated this E3. Wasn't hard, considering how shitty MS's conference was, and fairly dull Sony's was, but there you go.

    Nintendo dominated that e3
