'New Super Mario Bros. 2' Goes For The Gold On The 3DS

This week marks a new release in one of gaming’s most hallowed franchises: Super Mario Bros. A sequel to its DS counterpart, which brought Mario and Luigi back to 2D for the first time in over a decade, New Super Mario Bros. 2 gives players control of Nintendo’s flagship character Mario once again. This time around, our plumber friend will set out to save Princess Peach while facing off against Bowser's brood, the Koopalings, as the eight of them have reared their ugly heads yet again.

Spread out over the course of 80+ levels, Mario will run, jump, stomp, and fly his way to recovering his beloved Princess one world at a time. While that's all pretty standard, New Super Mario Bros. 2 gives you to one additional, overarching task – collect coins. While you’re running around the Mushroom Kingdom, try to grab as many gold coins as possible - in fact, the game challenges you to collect one million coins total. So there's two items on Mario's “To Do” list in NSMB2: save Peach from the evil clutches of Bowser and his psychotic kids, and grab as many coins as possible. Easy.

In addition to the tons of levels that are packed with classic 2D platformting, New Super Mario Bros. 2 comes with a handful of unique bells and whistles as well. First off, NSMB2 is the first full 3DS game release that you can either download straight to your device, and keep stored on your system, or purchase a physical copy at your local gaming store. There's also two-player co-op, SpotPass functionality, as well as downloadable content that will be released in the coming weeks. If that's not enough, there's a Coin Rush mode that challenges you to grab as many coins as possible over the course of three randomly selected levels. You can then share your scores with your friends and strangers via StreetPass.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be a treat for anyone that's a fan of the series and has a 3DS. It's well worth the time and effort, and may be a solid enough reason to justify picking up one of those fancy new 3DS XLs that just came out.
