Super Mario 3DS to include more than just the Tanooki Suit

This months issue of Official Nintendo Magaize  UK (ONM) has an interview with Yoshiaki Koizumi that should excite long time fans of the Mario franchise. “I can’t reveal the actual number of power-ups in the game right now,” says Koizumi, “but suffice to say that we do try to include enough so that people can enjoy a variety of different kinds of play experiences in the title.”

The Tanooki Suit is a nice, but here’s hoping there are a few brand new power-ups included as well. One of Mario’s newest power-ups, the bee suit, was introduced in Super Mario Galaxy which is arguably one of the best Mario power-ups to date. Maybe Alpaca Mario will make his long awaited appearance.

“But I can say that we will definitely have some more familiar suits than just the Tanooki Suit” Koizumi continues. I can’t wait to find out what classic items Nintendo decides to throw in, the more the merrier.
