Nintendo revealed back in January that they were working on a 2D side-scrolling Mario game for the 3DS. Speculation on what that game would be can now end, as Nintendo announced that New Super Mario Bros. 2 will release for the 3DS this August.

Nintendo has not revealed any other explicit details about the game, but IGN reports that a quote from Nintendo’s Facebook page reveals that Luigi will poke his green hat into the game. In addition, the various screenshots (see below) reveal the return of the raccoon suit, golden Mario (is that a power-up that I’ve missed?), and giant spider web climbing, which, frankly, is terrifying.

Are you guys excited for New Super Mario Bros. 2? Will this compel you to buy a 3DS if you don’t have one yet? Let us know!
