New Super Mario Bros. 2 is a side-scrolling platformer video game in the Super Mario series. New Super Mario Bros. 2 has a heavier emphasis on coin-collecting than other Super Mario games. The game's ultimate goal is to collect one million coins.
New Super Mario Bros. 2 continues the style of gameplay from New Super Mario Bros., featuring side-scrolling platform action as Mario or Luigi attempt to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser and his Koopalings. Along with returning power-ups from the first game, such as the Mini Mushroom and Mega Mushroom, the game also sees the return of the Super Leaf from Super Mario Bros. 3, allowing the player to tail whip enemies or fly up into the air. Similar to Super Mario 3D Land, an Invincibility Leaf will appear if the player dies at least five times during a stage, granting raccoon abilities and invincibility until the end of the stage. The main game has both single player and multiplayer options: two players, each with his or her own Nintendo 3DS and copy of the game, play together simultaneously as Mario and Luigi. Like the previous games, players can collect Star Coins hidden throughout each level, which can be spent to unlock new areas on the overworld map.
In addition to the main game, New Super Mario Bros. 2 features a Coin Rush mode, unlocked after the player completes the first world. In Coin Rush, the player plays through three randomly chosen levels collecting as many coins as possible. However, the player is given only one life and each level gives a time limit of 100 seconds. If mid-way flags are passed or timers are collected, the time limit will be extended. If the player completes the run, the accumulated total of coins collected can be saved as the player's high score, which can be transmitted to other players via StreetPass.
