New Super Mario Bros. 2 Owners Get Free Downloadable Coin Rush Course Pack Based on Classic Games

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.

Considering how much the other DLC cost and the fact that it was "On disc DLC", I think we deserve a little free DLC from Nintendo for this game.

The previous DLC was already on the 3DS card?

On topic: If it's free, I'll take it. Maybe I should give coin rush another go, I've only done two runs since I own the game.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I assume it was because it "downloaded" faster than anything I'd ever downloaded on the 3DS before.  It took like two seconds.  I'm not even kidding.

This doesn't necessarily mean that the data was already on the 3DS card, because the download of the 20 new Mutant Mudd levels finished within a minute too. Each DLC pack for NSMB2 is just three levels, so it's barely any data that needs to be transfered. All the DLC packs' game code and assets are already on the 3DS card, so Nintendo is essentially only transfering level editor data.

You could be right.  I think the Mutant Mudds levels took longer to download, though.  Then again, those Nes Ambassador titles downloaded quickly, as well.  I'll look at my 3DS and see how big the download files are--but that won't really prove anything, I guess.

You were distracted by the nudes on the TV. So, it seems like 2 seconds.
