Product Description

New Super Mario Bros. 2

Mario and his Mushroom Kingdom friends are back in this latest installment of the famous side-scrolling platform adventure series. Mario's latest adventure is packed full of all the classic side-scrolling gameplay that all ages can enjoy. But what really makes it the gold standard in platforming fun is the true wealth of brand new features and gameplay elements.

•  Collect thousands and thousands of coins but can you collect a million?

•  Use new items like the Gold flower, Gold Block and Gold Mushroom to help build up your coin collection.

•  Encounter new enemies as they try and stop you in your quest.

•  Play though over 80 levels of platforming madness.

•  Play together with friends and family via local wireless connection and help add to the Worldwide Coin Total via SpotPass.

Join Mario and Luigi as you play through over 80 levels, tackle new enemies and attempt to reach the ultimate goal, to collect 1 million coins. New Super Mario Bros. 2 promises to deliver a fun-filled adventure full of golden gameplay that all ages can enjoy, only on Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL.


Trouble always seems to find its way to the Mushroom Kingdom. Just as Mario and Luigi go off on a coin hunt in the sky, their beloved Princess Peach is kidnapped by the dastardly Koopalings. The brothers have to venture through over 80 stages to rescue her, grabbing an endless deluge of coins across land, water, air, and snow along the way.

The New Super Mario Bros. 2 game is bursting at the seams with an endless flow of gold coins for you to collect. You'll explore levels filled with gold pipes leading to coin-filled caverns, gold enemies leaving behind trails of coins, and new power-ups and items that will push your coin count into the stratosphere. Can you collect a million coins?

Shiny new Power Ups and Items

Use familiar items such as the Super Leaf, Mega Mushroom and Super Star to tackle obstacles in your way. However, new power-ups have appeared and each one gives you a boost to reach new heights, grab multitudes of coins, and more.

Gold Flower - Find this rare flower to turn into Gold Mario, and wield Gold Fireballs that turn almost everything into coins-bricks, Goombas, you name it. Each enemy you stomp on also offers up five coins.

Gold Block - Hit a repeating coin block enough times and it turns gold, getting stuck on Mario's head. Run as fast as possible with this block attached and watch the coins add up at super speed.

Gold Ring - Hop through a gold ring and all enemies will turn into gold for a short time, yielding more coins and coin-producing behaviors. Flying Cheep-Cheeps will have a trail of coins, Gold Lakitus will toss coins from the sky, and more.

Gold Mushroom - This valuable fungus only appears in Coin Rush mode. But if you manage to find one, you'll get 50 coins on the spot.

New online and multiplayer modes

Whether you're in a friendly or competitive mood, enjoy a romp through New Super Mario Bros. 2 with friends and family in a variety of fun modes.

Two Player Co-op

If you and a friend each have a Nintendo 3DS system and a copy of the game, you can play through the entire game together with a local wireless connection. Collect double the coins, team up for devastating double Ground Pounds, and more. A buddy can even join in to help when continuing from your Solo Play save file.

Coin Rush

Show off your super skills in this mode, where you'll play three levels back-to-back trying to earn as many coins as possible using only one life. Your Coin Rush record is then saved and can be shared with other players via the StreetPass feature. These players can try to beat your score, and you can challenge theirs.

Worldwide coin total

Enable SpotPass communication for New Super Mario Bros. 2, and every coin you collect will be added to the Worldwide Coin Total, along with other players like you. How high do you think it will go? Let's find out together!

3.0 out of 5 stars Old Super Mario Bros. 19 April 2013
Verified Purchase
My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed, 'New Super Mario Bros. (Nintendo DS)' for the Nintendo DS. The single player is good fun, with the familiar gameplay that is seen throughout similar past games in this series. However, this was the first time 3D and 2D elements were used in the series, which made it stand out more. It also has a fantastic multiplayer element to it, featuring a wide variety of fun mini-games, with the addition of a two-player Mario Vs. Luigi game, where players need to collect the most amount of stars in a given time limit across a selection of levels.

'New Super Mario Bros: 2' for the Nintendo 3DS is a step backwards. The gameplay stays the same, which I suppose is to be expected but for me, I wanted something more. Something that I could say, "Yes, this is an improvement on the first game." However, this never came through. There is no multiplayer section, no fun mini-games to play with friends; just a single player coin rush mode - which to obtain additional courses you mostly have to purchase them separately! If you've spent thirty pounds on a game, then I believe you should not have to purchase additional content that could have easily been put on the game, when it was first released.

I recommend renting this game, and if you want a better experience then I can highly recommend, 'New Super Mario Bros. (Nintendo DS)' for the Nintendo DS.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but great? 25 Aug 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If you haven't heard of Mario, you have been seriously deprived or living as a caveman for the past 25, or so, years.
I don't need to mention the story, because you already know it.
Obviously, Mario is not a game about dramatic plot twists and epic story lines.
But, it is damn fun and has kept Nintendo in business (as well as Zelda and Prof. Layton).
I don't know how long they can keep doing what they do.
Mario Kart, Smash Bros, Super Mario Bros. etc... On each console.
But for now, it works and it keeps me buying their stuff.
On a side note, I also have an Xbox 360.

Anyway.. The game is good, but nothing you've not already seen.
Anyone who likes Mario should like this, but some may find it disappointing because there's nothing really 'new' about it.
A lot of reviews already point out the problems with the game, so here's a summary:

- It's pretty short, depending on how you play the game
- Still has no online co-op/multiplayer. Nintendo are lagging behind with this, always
- You have FAR TOO MANY lives and don't have the worry of seeing a game-over screen, which can make gamers feel determined to carry on playing
- It seems like Nintendo have tried too hard to make a game easy enough for kids
- The boss battles are pretty much a joke to be honest
- Toad houses offer nearly nothing... Apart from power ups you easily get during levels, and More damn lives!
- The coin thing is a bit ridiculous. The new powers ups are fairly fun, I suppose, but is it worth trying to find 1 million coins? I personally don't know the 'reward' for doing this, apart from wasting some precious time
- The 3D is rubbish and you end up turning it off. After Super Mario 3D land, this is very disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Super Fun 27 Nov 2012
By Achilles TOP 500 REVIEWER
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Her is the latest addition of Mario Bros from Nintendo. If you have played Mario Bros before then theres not many changes to what you are already used to. The 3D and graphics are very good and the different levels are great fun; the bad bosses are a bit easy to destroy though.

If this is your first Mario Bros game you will love it, if your a Mario Bros Die Hard then this is just another addition to this fun packed family, but it will not challenge you as much as some previous editions.

Overall: a very good game for a fabulous device!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good - but not really 3D 20 Aug 2012
By Luke94
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
After playing this for a couple of days, I think it's a really good game and quite addictive to play. I love the 'Coin Rush' mode and think it is a great new feature to add originality.

However, other than this and the new 'Gold Mario' which turns everything into gold coins, there is not a great deal of difference between this and other Mario games which is a shame.

My other complaint about this game is that it doesn't make use of the 3D feature much at all. When you slide up the 3D slider, it doesn't add very much depth at all and the background does become very blurry, meaning it is better to play in 2D.
Overall, I'd say it's still a worthwhile buy though because if you enjoyed the other Mario games, you'll still enjoy this just as much if not more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Mario Game 26 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I wasn't particularly impressed by New Super Mario games (Wii and NDS versions). I bought this version with a few reservations. I have to say this third iteration is by far the most accomplished. It may be just because the difficulty curve is a little less steep, but the game appears more balanced (i.e. less fiendishly difficult).
Some reviews stated that there is not much Nintendo can do to innovate while sticking to old formulas. That's true, but this is a winning formula, and it would be unwise to change it too much.
Evolution rather than revolution.
I highly recommend this game, together with Super Mario 3D Land, which is a different take at the Mario universe. Both games are masterpieces, so if you don't own them, you know what to ask Santa Claus!
