Look, I know what a lot people will be thinking. Lots of you will be like “another Mario game, can’t Nintendo do anything original?” and then you’re going to snigger to yourself and go back to playing Call of Duty 9. The thing is, these Mario games are usually really good.
So, Nintendo has dated their latest Mario iteration – New Super Mario Bros 2. Yes, it’s a ridiculous title and yes it’s another platformer featuring the mustachioed plumber but it’s very likely to be excellent.
Mario’s next side scrolling adventure will be released in Europe on the 17th of August, a couple of days before North America gets it on the 19th. They’re going overboard with the coins this time, as you can see in the trailer below.
