REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nintendo fans worldwide have amassed a mountain of more than 300 billion gold coins in New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the Nintendo 3DS system, and the tally continues to climb. To reward players for hitting this massive milestone, Nintendo is offering a free pack of Coin Rush courses that game owners can download wirelessly within the game at no extra charge (broadband Internet access is required).

The free Gold Classics Pack was inspired by games like Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 3, and includes three new courses that can be played in Coin Rush mode. Players can test their skills, then share and challenge other players’ records through the StreetPass feature. The Gold Classics Pack is now available and will be free for a limited time to New Super Mario Bros. 2 owners. Starting Feb. 1, 2013, the pack will be available to purchase for $2.50 in the United States. A variety of other downloadable Coin Rush course packs are available for purchase through the New Super Mario Bros. 2 game.

“Nintendo fans have once again demonstrated their passion for the Super Mario Bros. franchise,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “The Gold Classics Pack is just one small way for us to thank players for their dedication. We’re all eager to see just how high that coin tally can get.”

New Super Mario Bros. 2 is the side-scrolling follow-up to the smash-hit original. It challenges players to complete levels while collecting as many coins as possible. Every level is littered with gold coins, and players will find numerous power-ups and bonuses to help them collect even more coins. It’s the first hand-held Super Mario Bros. game that lets two players play through the entire game together as Mario and Luigi. The game is available in stores, or can be downloaded from the Nintendo eShop for $39.99 in the United States.

Remember that Nintendo 3DS features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/3ds.

@MermaidKelly

I was just able to download the content about 10 minutes ago.

And I must say, I LOVE IT! I really would have paid for it. They should do more of this. Nice love letter to Mario fans.

It may not be much, but thank you Nintendo. And where are all the complainers now saying Nintendo isn't going to anything when we amass said amount?

This is a lot of fun. There are so many hidden pathways to find that intertwine the classic levels. It may only be a 3 pack, but within those 3 levels are about 5 or 6 levels culled from SMB and SMB3. It's fun trying to find all the branching paths to see all the classic levels.

Haters can hate all they want on NSMB2 or the series in general, but I think they've done a good job with NSMB2 and maintaining the interest after the main game through the DLC.

Not surprising they hit that mark but man is this game boring and just the definition of mediocre (as far as Mario goes). Played this for 2 weeks and haven't touched it since. NSMB U blows this and the other 2 NSMB titles out of the water.
