Mario Goes for the Gold in New Super Mario Bros. 2 Trailer

Nintendo has just released a new gameplay trailer for their upcoming 3DS title New Super Mario Bros. 2. The gameplay showcases the various power-ups in the game, which you have to admit, is one of the more fun things about the 2.5D platformer. You’ll recognize the regular power ups like the mega mushroom (which I believe is hands down the best power-up EVER in the franchise), the mini mushroom, and even newer ones like the invincibility leaf.

One of the more interesting power ups shown is the Gold Flower, which allows Mario to shoot golden fireballs, which transform any enemy or block it hits into gold coins. That’s certainly the kind of power up that would prove to be useful in the real world.

One thing comes to mind from watching this trailer, though – what about Wario? Isn’t he always wishing for more money in every single one of his games, and then the big N goes ahead and gives his rival the power to turn everything into money.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 is due out August 19 for Nintendo 3DS.

Neil Raymundo
