Nintendo is the proud, new owner of a bouncing bundle of Internet joy in the form of a newly purchased domain at. The domain registration was discovered by IGN, which notes that a WHOIS search shows that the publisher isn't even trying to conceal its connection with the domain. As you can see, the organization that owns the virtual location is listed as Nintendo of America.
What we don't have is confirmation from Nintendo that this actually means anything. It's just a dead end web address for now, one that automatically re-directs your browser to Nintendo.com if you try to visit it. The publisher confirmed in January 2012 that a new side-scrolling Mario game is due for the 3DS sometime during the coming (at the time) fiscal year, which runs from April 2012 to the end of March 2013.
