Yesterday Nintendo.com announced that New Super Mario Bros, will be released on May 7th in the US, very close to the Japanese version also to be released in May.

New Super Mario Bros. is the first original Mario adventure for Nintendo DS and the first 2D Mario title since the legendary Super Mario World on the Super Nintendo.

"New Super Mario Bros. is loaded with features and characters that could only exist in the Mushroom Kingdom, including all-new power-ups like the Blue Shell, in which Mario can ride, and a massive Mushroom that makes him ultra-huge. The title features stunning 3-D models moving through lavish, cleverly designed 2-D worlds, culminating in a final showdown for the freedom of Princess Peach."

We expect, or hope the European release will be announced soon.
