Posted by Mike Mason

Get your fire flowers ready

Hold onto your hats: New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be coming to Nintendo 3DS in the US on 19th August.

The latest pillar of the 2D Mario revival was scheduled at Nintendo's E3 press conference. We'll learn more about the game tomorrow at a show just for 3DS tomorrow night. It'll be broadcast live on e3.nintendo.com at 6pm Pacific, 9pm Eastern, 2am UK time.

For now, we're told "it's all about the gold". Are you looking forward to shining with Mario once more in summer?

Even though Mario has been done to death lately, it's still nice to have the classic platforming action that he's know and loved for!

Pretty impressed this will be out in only 2 months. How did they keep this secret?
And why should I buy a WiiU?

And now Wario is going to have to sue Mario for completely stealing his gimmick.

I can tell you the story of NSMB2! wario is turned into Mario and trying to get all coins from mushroom kingdom! that's why this is all about gold and coins. what do you think? good prediction? :))

This looks fun. Between Mario and Wario are there any gold coins left in the mushroom kingdom? They're probably richer then House Toadstool 10x over.

The problem I see with this game is that it'll be easy to get 1ups. FAR easier...

Also.. Why is this under New Super Mario Bros U? lol
