Default Super Mario 3DS Combines Galaxy and Mario 64, Will be at E3

<center sab="200"></center>
Following up on his revelation from yesterday where he vowed to try having it ready for release this year, Shigeru Miyamoto has now offered up some new details about the forthcoming Super Mario game for 3DS -- which will be on display at this year's E3.

"It's a combination of Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario on N64," said Miyamoto in London today, Edge reports. "It won't convey the message if I talk to you today, but if you play it at E3 that will give you more understanding of what I'm talking about."
He also reinforced that the system's 3D effect will have an impact on gameplay. He said, "For example, the floors floating in space: in 2D it's difficult to judge the distance, but in 3D it's really easy."

Nintendo hasn't committed to releasing games that require 3D in the past. Considering his statement, that might continue to be the case with Mario 3DS. The 3D effect may simply make it easier to perceive depth in platforming sections as opposed to be a necessary element to traversing certain areas.

Miyamoto confirmed speculation about the tail on the 'o' in Mario shown at GDC -- the Tanooki suit is making a return. "The tail you mentioned on the logo -- it's what you think it is," Miyamoto revealed. "You probably know what's going to happen using that character."
And in case you were unsure if you should trust his claim that it'll be out this year, he laid it out simply: the game is "completely original, and coming this year." It's not actually that surprising; there traditionally hasn't been much of a gap between the release of Mario games in Japan and North America. The last handheld Mario game, New Super Mario Bros., came out in May 2006 and was actually available in the U.S. before Japan, as was the case with Super Mario Galaxy 2 and New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
