Mario Kart and Paper Mario will be released on Nintendo 3DS this year, a new Nintendo advert has confirmed.
The ad, on the inside cover of the latest issue of UK trade bible MCV, lists the "wide selection of Nintendo 3DS games" that will be "available this year" - with Mario Kart and Paper Mario are among them.
So far Nintendo's official word on the Mario pair has only been that their release dates are 'TBA'.
We're sure you'll agree that it'd be fantastic to get our hands on both games before Christmas - especially Paper Mario which looks gorgeous.
