New New Super Mario Bros 2 Trailer

1 min read


Yeah, I’m an unabashed Mario fan – so things like this make me all giddy inside. Even though the 2D Mario formula really hasn’t changed very much since the release of Super Mario Bros on the NES in 1985, the games are still a blast to play. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, I guess.

Here’s a new trailer for the coin-collect-a-thon New Super Mario Bros 2 for the 3DS. It’s coming in the middle of next month – and for the first time in a 2D handheld Mario, will feature co-operative gameplay – with one playing as Mario, and the other as the downtrodden, sadfaced, lanky Luigi – throughout the entire campaign. New Super Mario Bros 2’s biggest differentiating factor is that this time around it’s all about the coins – with numerous power-ups giving our beloved plumber King Midas’ touch.

New Super Mario Bros 2 will be available exclusively for the 3DS on August 17. The 3DS XL used to demo it in the below trailer will be available this weekend.

Remember, you’ve got 2 chances of winning one this weekend; by showing up and racing at the 3DS XL launch parties, or by tag spamming your mates on Facebook.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
