Yoshiaki Koizumi, the director of Super Mario 3DS has told Official Nintendo Magazine that “I can’t reveal the actual number of power-ups in the game right now, 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.” He also explained:
> …we don’t necessarily decide on what number of famous Mario suits will appear in the game and proceed from there – we try to find interesting gameplay ideas and then try to settle on what to do in different places.
Koizumi finished by outright saying “we will definitely have some more familiar suits than just the Tanooki Suit.” Brilliant news of course. Now if only we had a release date…
