Nintendo's upcoming Super Mario 3D Land for the Nintendo 3DS is taking plenty of inspiration from the classic Super Mario Bros. 3. Consider the return of the Tanooki suit power-up, for instance. Mario's next adventure also includes some new power-ups, although one of them is definitely inspired by the famous Nintendo Entertainment System game. As Game Informer reports, while Mario once slipped on a Hammer Bros. suit in order to throw hammers around like nobody's business, now Mario will don a suit based on the favored weapon of the Boomerang Bros. Lookin' good, Mario!
Nintendo World Report managed to grab an image of the new boomerang suit, which it says was unintentionally leaked. Without Nintendo's official confirmation, we don't know if this is 100 percent real, but the high quality image sure looks that way.
This won't be the first time that Mario has tossed boomerangs around. Super Mario Advance 4 (the Game Boy Advance remake of Super Mario Bros. 3, coincidentally) featured a grabbable and tossable boomerang item as part of the never-seen e-Reader expansion card set. Super Mario 3D Land hits stores next month.
