Also, another tidbit sure to delight SNES fans:
"The most exciting moment of Mr. Iwata's speech was when he announced Nintendo's plans to produce new updated versions of classic games like Metroid, Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Story. Of course, this does not guarantee that these titles will be available in the United States."
You heard that right my friends. Mario, Samus and Link all return for some portable joy!
