Fans of Super
Mario games were recently given plenty to celebrate when two new adventures
arrived on the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL and Wii U console. But what can
you expect from each of these latest visits to the Mushroom Kingdom?
new challenges in New Super Mario Bros. 2
If you’re looking for platform adventure
specifically for your Nintendo 3DS or 3DS XL, then New Super Mario Bros. 2 has
loads to offer. The game has over 80 stages of fun and for the first time ever
you’ll have the chance to collect up to one million coins. There’s also Coin
Rush mode, which challenges you to complete three randomly-generated levels
back-to-back without losing a life.
Like all good adventure games, New
Super Mario Bros. 2 comes packed with power-ups too,
all designed to help you make your way through the many levels. One option is
the Gold Flower, which allows Mario to become Gold Mario and use Gold Fireballs
that take care of tricky enemies and obstacles by turning them into even more
new ways to play in New Super Mario Bros. U
Wii U brings with it a whole new way to
play – especially when teamed up with New
Super Mario Bros. U. Up to five players can get involved in the action,
whether you’re racing your way through levels in an attempt to finish with the
biggest haul of gold coins, or using the Wii U GamePad to place Boost Blocks
and create customised courses.
If you prefer to play alone, you can use
the Wii U GamePad to do so – and if the TV is in use the controller will even
act as a second screen so you can continue the fun. There are some great
special modes to enjoy too including Challenge Mode, Time Attack, Coin Collection,
1-Up Rally and the miscellaneous games of the ‘Special’ category.
He may have been around for some time, but
with two fantastic new adventures to play on the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL
and Wii U, it looks like Super Mario has plenty more tricks up his sleeve to
keep gamers entertained for years to come.
