Nintendo president Satoru Iwata announced that the follow-up to retro-reboot "New Super Mario Bros will heading to the 3DS this August during a "Nintendo Direct" livestream last night.
Though initially only announced as a Japanese release, Nintendo of America confirmed today that New Super Mario Bros 2 will be to coming North America in August as well.
Nintendo recently bought the URL for supermario4.com, leading to string of rumors about a potential sequel to the original NES Mario trilogy. Those rumors were fueled by information that Nintendo will be showing Mario's first adventure on the Wii U at E3, as well as the a "side-scrolling" Mario project for the 3DS.
If this is the aforementioned 3DS game, does that mean that "Mario Wii U" will be Super Mario Bros 4?
