Okay, so, if you haven’t heard by now, one of the ultimate goals in New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the Nintendo 3DS is to collect 1,000,000 coins. The inspiration for this feat, according to Nintendo, is to encourage players to keep returning to the game for years to come.
1,000,000 coins. That’s, call me crazy, a lot. The video you see above is made up of footage from a recent Iwata Asks interview. It provides five minutes of gameplay that takes viewers on a ride from “oh, that’s a lot of coins” to “OH, THAT’S A LOT OF COINS.”
It’s a lot of coins.
