Nintendo Announces New Super Mario Bros 2 for 3DS, Kirby Anniversary for Wii

Nintendo announced on Friday new details on two major AAA titles coming in 2012. Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto teased a new 2D Mario would be released this year which we now know as New Super Mario Bros. 2. Not much is known on the game, but some of the screens show the return of the raccoon suit and more importantly the P-meter from Super Mario Bros 3. This confirms flight is back in a 2D Mario game, something that has not been seen since Super Mario World in 1991.

Kirby is also celebrating his 20th year as Nintendo also teased a release of Kirby Anniversary for the Wii. Not much is known of what the game will contain, but many fans including myself are guessing a “best-of” compilation of Kirby’s finest titles over the pass 20 years.

Some of the titles t3chniq is guessing:

  • Kirby’s Adventure- NES
  • Kirby Super Star- SNES
  • Kirby Dream Course- SNES
  • Kirby’s Pinball- Gameboy
  • Kirby’s Dreamland 3- SNES
  • Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards-N64
  • Kirby’s Air Ride- Gamecube

Stay tuned for more details on both games as they break.
