Nintendo to reintroduce Super Mario Bros. in May

Nintendo announced on Tuesday that the classic Super Mario. Bros series will see a follow up in May.
New Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo DS will drop to retail on May. 7.
The side-scroller will see new power-ups like a Blue-shell that Mario can ride, a mushroom that turns Mario into a giant, and 3D graphics that run on a two-dimensional plane.
Nintendo has sold 14.4M Nintendo DS units worldwide.
The original Super Mario Bros. launched Nintendo into a household name when the video game veteran offered a copy of the game with the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985.
Since then, the portly plumber has become the face of the company, appearing in launch games, sports games, and a new dance game.
