Money printing ahoy: New 2D Mario game coming to 3DS

Nintendo just posted some serious financial losses, but it looks like they're right on track towards getting back in the black. At a recent online conference, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata announced that thanks to the 3DS's record breaking Q4 2011 sales, the console is looking much better in the eyes of 3rd parties, hinting that there are plenty of unannounced big name titles coming to the console. 

He didn't get into any more detail than that regarding what 3rd parties are up to, because if he did, that would be a dick move. What would 3rd parties do at E3 this year if Iwata let the cat out of the bag now? Look silly, that's what!

Still, this part of the conference needed a climax, so Iwata took one for the team and announced a new first-party 3DS title: an unnamed 2D Mario game set to release within the next fiscal year (April 2012- March 2013). Seeing as New Super Mario Bros. and New Super Mario Bros. Wii were both two of the best-selling, hardware- moving titles of the past console generation, I think it's safe to say that the 3DS's chances of having a record breaking 2012 just got a whole lot better.
