Nintendo has announced it is bringing New Super Mario Bros. 2 to the 3DS in Japan and North America come August.
The publisher made the announcement during its Nintendo Direct conference. Few details were revealed other than the fan-favorite Power Leaf power-up will be making a return in the installment.
“This all-new, side-scrolling adventure features Mario, Luigi and all your fave characters from the Mario series,” says Nintendo.
A new 2D Mario title was teased by Nintendo earlier this year.
