image New Super Mario Bros. 2 has a copious amount of coins and players from all over the world collected 1,026,171,354,778 coins since the game was released one year ago. That’s a lot of coins in just a little over a year.


Bowser used to be quite stingy with his treasure too. In the original Super Mario Bros. coins were hard to find in World 8. I assumed Bowser figured out Mario was earning extra lives so he ordered his legion of goombas and koopas to pick up all the floating coins. I guess Bowser is just getting sloppy these days.

      while it is not a very great thing that the leader of a kingdom keeps getting kidnapped by a giant dinosaur I guess its assuring that the citizens of the mushroom kingdom don’t suffer economic hardship.

    I have so many games for my 3DS… New Super Mario Bros. 2 is not one of them. I find New Mario so tiring these days…

    Just don’t let Wario get wind of this.

    and not a single coin is mine because this game isn’t even worth it much for me.
