New Super Mario Bros. 2 Launches

Super Mario Bros. 2, the follow-up to the best-selling Nintendo DS game of all time, is now available. Players can buy a card in retail stores to download the game or can download it directly from the Nintendo eShop. New Super Mario Bros. 2 features several new modes such as Coin Rush mode where you go for the high score while rushing through three levels back-to-back. Players can try to top their own coin tallies or see if they can beat the scores of players they meet via StreetPass. Players with wireless Internet access can also add their collected coins to the global coin total via SpotPass. In addition, two players, each with a Nintendo 3DS system and game card, can play through the entire game together as Mario and Luigi over a local wireless connection. While playing through the levels together, each player will get double the amount of coins. Additionally, this unique cooperative mode lets one player become the leader and take charge of what is viewed on the screen. This allows veteran gamers to help players who are not as familiar with a traditional 2-D side-scrolling Mario game. It also encourages healthy competition as players battle for leadership in this mode.
