More 3D adventures ahoy!

Hold onto your red caps Mario fans: the plumber's set to star in 2D and 3D games on the 3DS.

Shigeru Miyamoto revealed that the ever-popular frontman will receive both old-school 2D outings and more complex 3D adventures to ensure broad appeal for all gamers.

When Super Mario became Mario 64, the range of players narrowed greatly. When asked 'what will we do on 3DS,' the answer is, of course, we'll make both. They both have their own appeal.

Regrettably Mr Miyamoto didn't reveal any further details on either title, but now we know Mario's making at least four outings on the machine following earlier announcements of Paper Mario and Mario Kart.
