Super Mario 3D Land info/predictions

Nintendo's newest Mario title coming out for the 3DS seems like it'll be quite interesting... Currently the 3DS is lacking in original titles, but Nintendo's newest Mario title will definitely be one of those things that warrants buying a new system. Mario games have a proven track record of getting better and better with each new evolution of the series. What we know about Super Mario 3D Land so far:

- It combines elements from 3D Mario and 2D Mario games to make a completely new game engine. The game's being built ground-up for the 3DS, and it will make use of the gyroscope to put a unique spin on the gameplay.
- As always the case with Mario games, the level designs are unique and interesting. Director Yoshiaki Koizumi also designed and directed Super Mario Galaxy, his influence on this title will undoubtedly make it great.
- It's likely to make use of the 3D effects in some cool ways that we haven't seen yet...
- Shigeru Miyamoto describes this particular game as "completely original" and a cross between Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario 64.
- The tanooki suit from SMB3 returns, as well as some other old powerups along with new ones.
