Nintendo Australia have confirmed New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be launching across Australia and New Zealand on August 18th, 2012 for the Nintendo 3DS.
A first for Nintendo, New Super Mario Bros.2 will be available both in-store and via digital download directly from the Nintendo eShop.
In New Super Mario Bros. 2, Bowser has once again kidnapped Princess Peach, but this time, Mario has a new objective. The Mushroom Kingdom is bursting with more gold coins than ever before and it’s up to players to collect as many coins as possible throughout their adventure.
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. The game records all the coins players collect throughout the game, so completing a level is only part of the fun!
Also, 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 multi-player mode using local wireless. Coin Rush Mode allows players to collect as many coins as possible and challenge friends to beat their record via StreetPass.
