Announced earlier this spring, Nintendo will launch a brand new entry in the New Super Mario Bros. line on the 3DS before this summer is over. New Super Mario Bros. 2 will feature more of the classic platforming we've come to know and love, only this time with a twist.

This game is all about collecting gold coins. In fact, the overall goal of the game is to collect 1,000,000 coins. As such, the gameplay has changed so that coin-based power-ups and enemies appear with regularity.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 is slated to launch for the Nintendo 3DS on August 19th, 2012. I'm already sold. Check out the few images released in the gallery below.
