New Super Mario Bros. 2 US release date

Mario gets money-orientated.

3DS platformer New Super Mario Bros. 2 will launch in the US on 19th August.

The title will differentiate from just-announced Wii U title New Super Mario Bros. U by focusing more on money collecting.

Coins will spawn everywhere around Mario, and collecting them will be key to your high scores.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be one of the first games from Nintendo available both as a physical launch and as a digital download.
