YES! The one thing that the NSMB series needed was a new character as well as a unique art style, so thankfully, this game looks to be the best in the series!

But after this, no more NSMB games please, Nintendo, if you want to make a mario side-scroller, then give it a new subtitle and a nice art style, with fresh music, power-ups, enemies, gameplay mechanics and mabye a new villan to kidnap Peach?
As you can tell, I like the 3DS. A lot.

For some reason, I absolutely love the idea of making your way through a level without getting any coins. Not touching the floor also sounds fun.
It looks a lot more original than expected, and I'm actually getting pretty excited for it!
In fact, I may try and do the Gold Rush DLC pack on NSMB2 without getting any coins. That could be challenging. :D

No it wasn't, it was fun and exciting!
Collect as much coins as possible, but keep to the time limit, it's more tense than it sounds!

I also noticed Bowser Jr.'s scarf. Was the first thing I thought of. Could be Bowser Jr. Kinda lame.

If it was, then Nintendo would not have told everyone that it is a new character.
Obviously got NSMB2 midnight of August 19th (hence the name)

Nice sack....... Someone had to say it :D

Now that's done what do you think is making it bulge so much...... ok ok that was the last one!
But what do you think is in it? Is it going to be squish for shrooms as the decal on it would suggest?
What is it's purpose?

All these fun little additions sound like there should be plenty to keep players occupied. That with tried and true Mario platforming perfection could lead us on to a winner.

Loving Nabbit by the way. When the mag gets it's makeover, can we have Nabbit as a mascot or something? Or just having him dotted about on various pages just to make me smile would be nice.

Exactly what I thought. Could we see a plot twist coming?
