The news was revealed by company president Satoru Iwata, and means the game will be on shelves between April 1 and March 31, 2013.
During an investor briefing, Iwata said: "We are planning to release a totally new side-scrolling Super Mario in 2D as a key title for the Nintendo 3DS in the next fiscal year."
The announcement came with a pledge from Iwata that Nintendo would improve software support for 3DS, recognising the need to "release new titles seamlessly." He also promised more titles aimed at western markets, with releases spread more evenly throughout the year rather than condensed into the fourth quarter.
