Additional Downloadable Content (DLC) arrived Thursday for New Super Mario Bros. 2 following the Nintendo Direct announcement. This release features two packs: Gold Mushroom Pack and Coin Challenge Pack B. Once again leaderboards are available for the Challenge Pack and another set of stages is scheduled to come out in November.
Stage 2 of the Coin Challenge B Pack features Banzai Bills leaving coin trails after touching a Gold Ring.
Compared to the previous DLC from earlier in October, the difficulty increases for the coin collecting in the Gold Mushroom Pack and the Coin Challenge tosses new challenges to players to overcome. The Gold Mushroom Pack features many blocks and pipes containing the golden fungi to boost the coin counter. Coin Challenge Pack B offers runs through a ghost house with timed blocks, and comets and coins hurling toward the ground.
New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the 3DS has new levels to play in its Coin Rush mode through Downloadable Content (DLC). Nintendo recently released three packs containing three levels apiece, each following a different theme. The Coin Challenge Packs have leaderboards online for global competition. More have been announced and will be released in the upcoming months.
The beginning of the first level in Coin Challenge Pack A.
Upon unlocking Coin Rush and receiving the Spot Pass that the Shop has been opened, players can choose packs to continue with new challenges. The Gold Rush Pack contains courses filled with Goombas, Cheep Cheeps and Twomps with plenty of coins. The Coin Challenge Pack A (the first of the challenge packs) features levels with lots of pipes, switch platforms and tons of Sledge Bros. The appropriately named Nerve-Wrack Pack contains a P-switch-based level, jumping atop Koopa Paratroopas over giant lava pits and bullet bills in a cannon-type stage.
Enjoy the 1985 Mario running through the level while smashing bricks, crushing Goombas and sliding down the flagpole? Following the success of the “New” series on the Wii, Nintendo has published New Super Mario Bros. 2 (NSMB2) for the 3DS pushing coin collecting as the main attraction.
Once again, Princess Peach (or Toadstool for the audience unfamiliar with the name change in the U.S. with Mario 64) has once again been kidnapped by Bowser (also known as King Koopa). The Mushroom Kingdom has been infiltrated not only by Bowser, but his seven Kooplings. Mario must make his way through to Bower’s castle to rescue Peach, but this time around, he’s able to “cash in” on the many minions with the new power-up ability: the Gold Flower.
