Nintendo have announced the return of Mario, Luigi and lots of your other favourite characters from the Mario universe in New Super Mario Bros. 2 for 3DS.
The game has been created specifically as a pick-up-and-play experience that can be instantly enjoyed by players of ‘all skill levels’ according to the Japanese publisher – the motive for Bowser’s suspected kidnapping of Princess Peach has yet to be confirmed.
Nintendo are also inviting players to the courts of Mario Tennis Open from 25 May. Serving up fast-paced tennis action, players can play as their own customised Mii characters and choose from approximately 200 special items, including rackets and tennis gear that not only enhance their character’s appearance but also modify their abilities.
Players can also suit up their Mii characters with outfits that both resemble and offer the skills of popular Nintendo characters as they compete in solo tournaments or against friends over an array of multiplayer options which include local online multiplayer which will allow you to play with friends and family and those in your local region online.
