I hope coin collecting in Mario games is your thing; if it’s not your thing, well, get ready for it to become your thing. That’s what you’ll be doing in the upcoming New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the Nintendo 3DS. The whole game features brand new power-ups, enemies and mechanics that each center around nothing but raking in that sweet, sweet moolah.
The challenge? Get to 1,000,000 coins. Doing so better unlock a playable Wario and Waluigi. They’re the pair that would go after nothing but coins, right?
Man, I really could have done without that super cheesy voice-over throughout the video.
New Super Mario Bros. 2 will launch for the Nintendo 3DS on August 19th in North America. We’ll have more on the game as it comes.
In case you’re wondering what the Nintendo media blowout is all about, considering that we’ve already had the Nintendo 3DS XL post go up and will have more media throughout the day, know that Nintendo held a small conference last night. Nintendo Direct aired online at midnight, EST. You can watch it in full right here. We’ll be tossing several individual videos from the showing as part of our news run today.
