Super Mario landing on Nintendo 3DS

It's raining Mario

A lot of Mario news has fallen our way with the reveal that Super Mario 3DS will be out this year if Miyamoto has anything to do about it, and about the Mario and Sonic game specially created for the 2012 London Olympics.

The creator of plumber Mario, Shigeru Miyamoto, said that the Super Mario 3DS game is 'completely original and coming this year', according to Edge.

He said, "It’s a combination of Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario on N64."

He also said playing the game at E3 will give gamers a better idea of what the game is all about. Miyamoto also spoke about how using 3D was affecting the game in a positive way.

When Super Mario 3DS was announced, not much was revealed so gamers will be hoping to catch a glimpse of the game at E3 this year in June.

In another bit of Mario news, SEGA and Nintendo announced Mario and Sonic will team up on the Wii and on the Nintendo 3DS for the first time for the official Olympic-themed video game: Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Along with classic Olympic games such as athletics, aquatics and table tennis, football and equestrian will also be seen on the Wii version.

The game will also feature over 50 original Olympic themed events in bother single and multiplayer modes.

"Mario and Sonic have had a phenomenally successful partnership and we are extremely proud to be able to recreate this once again with Nintendo and ISM for the London 2012 Olympic Games,” said Naoya Tsurumi, Chairman for SEGA of America and SEGA Europe. 

A launch date for the game will be announced later in the year.
