Nintendo announced Nov. 22 that New Super Mario Bros. 2 players had reached 300 billion coins in its global coin counter, which is tallied through the 3DS’s spotpass feature. In recognition of the achievement, classic levels based on the original Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 3 were released and available to players free through the shop that can be accessed in the game through Feb. 1, when the pack can be bought for $2.50.
The newly released pack Gold Classics Pack is the sixth DLC (downloadable content) pack released for NSMB2 for the 3DS. The pack has a difficulty rating of 1 out of 5 stars with a goal of 30,000 coins (maxing out the course coin counter). The levels, despite being in the Coin Rush mode offers plenty of opportunities to delay the player from reaching a time over. Between the levels, players can increase time with two midway-point flags offering an additional 100 seconds apiece, 65 10-second clock and 4 50-second clocks. The total time for the courses could reach 1350 seconds on the timer, which means every course could be thoroughly explored.
