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.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 is an all-new side-scrolling adventure game featuring Mario AND Luigi. Two players who each own the game will have the option to play the entire game in two-player multiplayer mode using local wireless.
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.
Coin Rush Mode allows players to collect as many coins as possible across three levels and challenge friends to beat their record via StreetPass.
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.
