The lights are on
Nintendo has revealed the release date for Mario's latest outing, and marked the occasion with a brand-new trailer. Super Mario 3D Land will be hitting Nintendo's 3DS handheld in North America this November.
You'll want to clear off your calendar this November 13, which is when the game is coming out. Longtime Mario fans will probably get a big kick out of the return of the tanooki suit, which shows up near the end of the trailer below. Nintendo also released a handful of new screens for the game, and you can take a look at those in the gallery. There are some nice little callbacks to old-school Mario in them.
Tim played the game back in June at E3, and seemed to have a pretty good time with it. Then again, when was the last time you didn't play a good Mario game?

Nice. It looks like a mix of Super Mario Galaxy and the old Mario games from the Gameboy series. WOW. What a seriously awesome first comment. Hopefully not the only one.
Can't wait for this! When it comes out, I'll buy a 3DS.
very, very cool lookin.
Looking pretty good there, Mario.
I sooo cannot wait now I have a reason to get my 3DS out again!
I really don't like those top down camera angels...But other than that. This game looks great! Can't wait to try it out!
