New 2D Mario Game coming out soon for 3DS, oh happy day!

The president of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, has just announced that a new 2D side scrolling Mario game will come out for the 3DS sometime within the next financial year.

Here is his official statement:

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.

I, for one, am personally excited about any new title coming out that features the beloved little plumber, especially one that takes him back to his roots. Cannot wait to see how this one turns out.
