During Nintendo’s latest financial results briefing, president Satoru Iwata announced that a brand new side-scrolling Mario game is in the works for the 3DS. It will be released during the next fiscal year.

This will be the first 2D Mario title for the system.

Iwata said:

“Although there is no logo here, we are planning to release a totally new side-scrolling action Super Mario in 2D as a key title for the Nintendo 3DS in the next fiscal year.”

Nintendo’s last 2D Mario for a portable system was New Super Mario Bros. The game has sold almost 29 million units worldwide.
