Mario Goes Cuckoo For Gold Coins on Nintendo 3DS


Mario is back and greedier for gold coins than ever in New Super Mario Bros. 2, coming to Nintendo 3DS on August 19th, both at retail and as a digital download via the eShop.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 marks a return to classic 2D Mario platforming after the delightful Super Mario 3D Land, but now collecting coins is the main objective (in addition to rescuing a certain kidnapped princess, of course). I guess the economy’s gotten so bad even Mario has decided to invest in gold.

Multiplayer will also come supported in two forms. Players can challenge the high scores of other players in a new Coin Rush mode, and a cooperative option will let two players hop through the entire game together. Sadly, co-op will only play over a local wireless connection.
