|Gold is in for "New Super Mario Bros. 2"|
With the newest Super Mario game releasing in about two weeks, the world's favorite plumber returns to do what he does best.
Published and devloped by Nintendo, New Super Mario Bros. 2 has a very familiar storyline: "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" (IGN).
The game will record how many coins players collect throughout the game, and there are even some neat new gold tricks. For example, there's a ring that will turn your enemies into gold, and there's a Gold Flower that let's you transform virtually anything into coins. Raccoon Mario also returns to this game, so you can fly and gain access to secret areas. Additionally, this platformer also includes a two player co-op option.
New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be released on August 19th exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS. Players can purchase the game one of two ways: either through a retail store (such as GameStop) or as a download from the Nintendo eShop.
DISCLAIMER!: New Super Mario Bros. 2 has been rated E for Everyone by the ESRB for Comic Mischief.
Since Mario has been around for a little over thirty years, what do you think has contributed to his worldwide success?
