Mario 3DS titles renamed, dated

Nintendo had confirmed new names and release dates for the 3DS’ two flagship Mario titles.

Traditional platformer Super Mario will now be known as Super Mario 3D Land and will land on UK shelves in November. The new title harks back to the original Super Mario Land series on Game Boy, the first title of which has been released on the 3DS eShop.

Meanwhile Mario Kart 3DS has become Mario Kart 7 and will be released in December. It is the first numbered entry in the long-running series.

Nintendo confirmed to Eurogamer that the new titles will be the final European names for each game.

The amended monikers were first sighted in a Nintendo press release this morning detailing the surprise 3DS price drop.
