: : : : : New Super Mario Bros. 2


[edit] Background

The hunt is on to reach a grand total of One Million Coins in New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the Nintendo 3DS. However Bowser has once again kidnapped Princess Peach, and it's up to Mario and Luigi to save the Princess whilst collecting a total of One Million Coins.

[edit] Game Play

Run, jump, swim, fly, and battle enemies through multiple levels in each world. Finishing one world allows players to move onto the next, but each level features impediments in the forms of obstacles, at least one fortress, a variety of Bowser's minions including Hammer Bros., Paratroopas, Piranha Plants, and bosses both familiar and with new twists. This all culminates with the final showdown against Bowser inside his castle.

[edit] Features

  • The Super Leaf makes its return to the main series, its first appearance since Super Mario Bros. 3, and it functions just like it did before: can break blocks or knock aside enemies along with flying after running for a certain amount of time.
  • Added to the series is the Gold Flower, whose fireballs explode when they hit something, and turn anything from blocks to enemies into coins! Defeating enemies in this form will also add to the coin total.
  • Coin Rush mode allows players to play through a set of levels that they've already cleared in an effort to get as many coins as possible within a shorter time limit. The checkpoints will also add to your time remaining, but if you hit the top of the flagpole your coin total doubles! There's also a variety of DLC packs available to purchase via Nintendo eShop to support this mode.
