Nintendo 3DS: Super Mario 3D, Mario Kart 3D Or Animal Crossing 3D Coming To Nintendo 3DS This Fiscal Year

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has told investors and analysts that Nintendo hopes to have Super Mario 3D, Mario Kart 3D or Animal Crossing 3D on store shelves worldwide this fiscal year.

Nintendo are hoping to sell at least 16 million Nintendo 3DS consoles within the first year. Satoru Iwata believes that the only way the company is going to do that is if it launches at least two of these three highly anticipated software titles.

“We want the other companies to be successful. In order to accomplish this goal, we would like to decide on the dates after we know the release plans of other companies’ games so that we are able to consider how we can maximize the sales of our titles without affecting the sales of other companies in the short term.”

With regard to Super Mario and Mario Kart specifically, he added: “However, especially for the two titles I introduced today, which are the new iterations of “Mario Kart” and “Super Mario,” I did not talk about them with the image of launching them in the next fiscal year or thereafter, so please understand it in that way.”
