As part of its fiscal third quarter results, Nintendo announced plans to release a side-scrolling Super Mario title for 3DS in its next fiscal year.

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata offered no other details about the game during his presentation, which can be viewed on the company's website. Iwata did say it would be "totally new," however. Nintendo's next fiscal year begins April 1, 2012 and ends March 31, 2013.

"With the fulfillment of software, we are confident that we will be able to make the Nintendo 3DS active for the full year as the mainstream platform in the video game market," he said.
