During Nintendo's E3 2011 press conference, president Reggie Fils-Aime took to the stage and confirmed that Super Mario 3D
, the 3DS title briefly teased back at GDC
, would launch before year's end. Also, the Tanooki Suit is back -- gameplay footage showed a blend of 2D and 3D gameplay, highly reminiscent of Super Mario Galaxy
. It makes sense, since the same team is handling the 3DS game.
