Nintendo 3DS

New Super Mario Bros. 2 Trailer Is Golden


New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the Nintendo 3DS is littered with gold coins. These coins are left behind by enemies, rain down from overhead pipes, and special gold pipes transport you into coin-filled caverns, too. With this new focus on gold coins, the game will record all the coins you collect throughout.


Additionally, gold rings turn enemies into special golden variants and a Gold Flower item gives you the ability to turn anything in your path into gold coins. Nintendo also confirmed the return of the Tanooki suit for this game.


New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be released on August 19th in North America. You can view a trailer for the game above.
