New Super Mario Bros. dated, Magnetica announced

Latest iteration of Nintendo's series bouncing onto DSes May 7; new marble-puzzle game coming June 5.

This morning, Nintendo DS fans got a double shot of good news. The Japanese game giant put a final US release date on New Super Mario Bros., the debut of its long-running, jumping-plumber series on its dual-screen handheld. The all-new platform adventure will arrive in stores stateside on May 7, though pricing and rating have yet to be announced.

New Super Mario Bros. is a polygonal game that is presented from the classic 2D side-scrolling perspective that made Nintendo a household name in the '80s. While the basics may be similar, Mario has a lot more moves than in previous outings, including butt-stomps, backflips, and triangle jumps. The game will also feature new power-ups, like a pump-up mushroom. GameSpot's previous coverage has more details on the game.

If sending diminutive Italian pipelayers airborne isn't your brand of moustache wax, Nintendo also announced an all-new title for the DS today. Titled Magnetica, the puzzle game will have players stop an oncoming onslaught of marbles. They will use the DS stylus to manipulate said marbles into groups of three or more, which will result in said groups vanishing. The game is due in stories on June 5, and GameSpot will have more details as they emerge.

Not to thrilled over the puzzle game but hey mario sounds cool. I think it should be known that side scrollers truly never get old. I think it was said earlier but whoever they are they are right.

I Still want a sequel to super mario 64 :P oh and to all you people out there complaining about nintendo delaying zelda again i leave you with a quote from a great man "A delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever."

Great! Something that will make the $150 dollars I spent worthwhile. AC:WW, Avance Wars:DS and Mario Kart just aren't cutting it.

Well, I used to love pointing out that Nintendo was one of the few companies that never missed a deadline. Obviously that isn't the case anymore. These video game companies need to learn not to blow their ---- when they first get an idea. I'm tired of getting excited about a game only to hear it is delayed 6 gazillion times. I still think they are making the right decision by not going overboard on what they include in the Revolution. I think Nintendo will be the only one of the three bigs to make some sort of profit off their console. That alone will mean they'll be around for yet another console after the rev. Long live the Nin!

Leaving out the GCN owners that don't want the DS is not a good deal for Nintendo. Actually, I would have played the New Super Mario Bros. That really makes me angry to be brutally honest. Oh well I will be getting my 360 soon. You know I still have high hopes for Nintendo, I have been buying their consoles since 1987. However, if they continue to put out games like the New Super Mario on the handheld and not the console I may leave them. What a slap in the face to their console fans.

Awesome stuff. I'm expecting millions of speed-run challenges when this is released. Videos of people finding enough secrets to complete the game in under 3 minutes, they're always fun to watch.

I thought it was initially coming out like April 3 or something like that. They moved it back. Doesn't matter to me...my semester ends days before that so it'll be a great way to relax after finals! :D

Mario is probably the single most recognisable gaming mascot ever and he's always soldiering on. A new side scrolling Mario utilizing 3D with gameplay that utilise the stylus on my DS... I'm all for it... Nintendo is on a roll. Classic Mario again bb. Can't wait to see the Rev's Mario....

I'll believe the given street date when I see it in stores. Remember the delays that have plagued their other killer apps (Zelda: Twilight Princess being the most recent)?

@VFG: It's a brand new game, and Nintendo hasn't released a new 2-D Mario game in 13 years. What are you talking about? And yeah, Nintendo doesn't make anything original anymore, especially on the DS...Nintendogs, Brain Training, Meteos, Electroplankton, Trace Memory (among many others)...nothing original, new, or unique there!?

I want Mario so much... Puzzle game seems cool (cuz it has marbles) but on a system that already has Meteos and Tetris DS it might have a hard time living up to the DS puzzle game standard.

Oh, thanks Nintendo, another release of a game that's been available for 20 years. Would it be all that hard to make something original?
