Super Mario 3DS Headed For E3, Out This Year & A Mix Of Two Great Mario Games

The first real Mario game for Nintendo's new 3DS will indeed be out this year, according to creator Shigeru Miyamoto. And it looks like we'll get our hands on the game simple known as Super Mario at E3 in June. But wait... there's more!

Miyamoto tells Edge that Super Mario 3DS will "a combination of Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario [64]" but that, somehow, it's also "completely original." Perhaps because of the heavily hinted at inclusion of raccoon tails, a Mario ability introduced in Super Mario Bros. 3. Let's hope that means full-on Tanooki Suit action.

Super Mario 3DS was first announced at this year's Game Developers Conference in the form of one raccoon tailed logo and four adorable screen shots. Its arrival this year would be fantastic news for Nintendo 3DS owners.
