Nintendo's just released yet more character artwork from Super Mario 3D Land, showing some classic characters will make their return.

Super Mario Bros. 3 veterans will recognise the Boomerang Bro — also seen in New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Super Mario Galaxy 2 — but there are new characters too: Boom Boom seems to have found himself a girlfriend, and there's a rather jolly-looking Whomp too.

If all this whets your appetite for information, don't forget to read our Super Mario 3D Land preview and send in your questions for our upcoming Q&A article.
