The highly anticipated Nintendo 3DS exclusive release of New Super Mario Bros. 2 is upon us, and a brand new challenge is available to all budding platform heroes. Bowser has once again kidnapped Princess Peach, but this time, Mario has another objective.
The Mushroom Kingdom is bursting with more gold coins than before. Each level is littered with gold as coins rain down from overhead pipes, trails of coins are left behind special gold enemies and gold pipes transport Mario into coin-filled caverns. It’s up to players to collect as many coins as possible throughout their adventure. New Super Mario Bros. 2 records all the coins players collect throughout the videogame, so completing a level is only part of the fun. Coin Rush Mode allows players to collect as many coins as possible across three levels and challenge friends to beat their record via StreetPass, and two players who each own the videogame will have the option to play the entire game in two-player multiplayer mode using local wireless.
From today, Nintendo 3DS owners have the option to either purchase New Super Mario Bros. 2 at retail stores or download the entire videogame through the Nintendo eShop. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest releases from Nintendo for all videogame formats.
