Nintendo announced it's bringing New Super Mario Bros. 2 to the 3DS in Japan and North America this August.

The announcement was made tonight during the company's Nintendo Direct conference. Several screenshots were shown as seen below. Earlier this year, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata teased a new 2D Mario game was in development for the handheld.

"This all-new, side-scrolling adventure features Mario, Luigi and all your fave characters from the Mario series," Nintendo says.

A release window for Europe was not provided at this time.
