Not to be outdone by the new Wii U Mario title, the 3DS will soon have another in the New Super Mario Bros. series with New Super Mario Bros. 2. This time, Mario needs a new house, so he is hell bent on stealing everyone in the Mushroom Kingdom’s gold*.

*this is not the actual story


More exciting than collecting tons of gold? RACCOON MARIO IS BACK. New Super Mario Bros. U might have Flying Squirrel Mario, but nothing beats the tried and true raccoon.

Story and features, as detailed by the official site. It looks as though if you hate physical copies of games, you can buy this one virtually. Neat!

Mario Hits the Mushroom Kingdom Jackpot
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.

The game records all the coins players collect throughout the game, so completing a level is only part of the fun. Every level is filled with golden opportunities, such as gold rings that turn enemies into valuable gold versions and a Gold Flower that gives Mario the ability to turn almost anything in his path into coins.

The return of Raccoon Mario gives Mario the ability to fly and access hidden areas.

Players will have the option to either purchase the game at retail stores or download the entire game through the Nintendo eShop.

Look for New Super Mario Bros. 2 to steal your gold this August.
