Super Mario 3D World Announced – December Release Window

When you think about how insanely popular the Super Mario Land games have been over the past years, it’s not surprising to think that Nintendo would have another game in the works. Well, the newly revealed Super Mario 3D World is certainly a welcome announcement.

The news was confirmed during the latest Nintendo Direct stream that Nintendo hosted in replacement of their usual E3 press conference. The game draws inspiration from earlier games such as Super Mario Bros. 2 from way back in the NES days. But to keep things fresh, they’ve included an all new power-up suit that’s based on a cat.

We’re expecting to see Super Mario 3D World come to Wii U by the end of 2013, with a planned December launch window already confirmed by Satoru Iwata himself.
