New Super Mario Bros. 2 is a side-scrolling platform game for the Nintendo 3DS that was released on August 19, 2012. This is the thirteenth title in the main Super Mario series, the eighth title to be a Super
Mario Bros. installment, and the third in the New Super Mario Bros. line after New Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo DS and New Super Mario Bros. Wii for the Wii. The game was announced by Satoru Iwata in a Nintendo conference in April 21, 2012. The game seems to be heavily based on Super Mario Bros. 3, as it features Raccoon Mario, and the P-charge bar, both of which were introduced in said game. It also combines elements from New Super Mario Bros., as this is the game's sequel. The current screenshots exhibit climbable spider webs, a sparkling golden Mario in a castle level, and a level crowded with shiny golden enemies.
Mario and Luigi put on tanooki suits and tell Peach that they are going out to collect coins. However, they don't go far as they then see the Koopalings... with Peach with them! Now each koopaling have scattered into a boss world on each of the eight worlds, and you must save Peach from the koopalings and possibly Bowser as well!
