When was the last time Nintendo made a 2D game?

Have they made any 2D titles since the 3DS got released?

3D sidescrollers like New Super Mario Brothers U doesn't count.

Here's a few off the top of my head,

Code of Princess
Epic Mickey
Donkey Kong Country Returns
Rayman Origins
Sonic Generations
Shinobi
New Super Mario Bros. 2
Hotel Transylvania
Castlevania Lords of Shadow

There's a few others, but that covers the major stuff.

It's because 2D sprites look like **** in 3D.

nsmb series doesn't use sprites.
in fact the character models are 3d.
it's just the LEVEL DESIGN that's 2-d

how can you tell a character model is 3-d?
they have depth,width and height
2-d models lack depth or to put a better way they look flat.

Get with the times, if you want old stuff, get it off the VC, otherwise the future is pretty third dimensional.

Games like Mark of the Ninja, Muramasa and Dust: An Elysian Tail disagree with you.
