Mario fans have gathered over 100 billion coins since New Super Mario Bros. 2 launched on 3DS, but Nintendo is hoping that's just the beginning as they recently revealed they'll be offering players several new Coin Rush modes via downloadable add-on packs. Best off all the first batch of DLC will be available tomorrow, Oct 4th here in the U.S.
The New Super Mario Bros. 2 add-on packs each offer up 3 new Coin Rush levels and each will be available for an easy to swallow $2.50. On top of that, additional packs will be making there way to our trusty handhelds toward the end of October and the end November.
"Nintendo fans have really enjoyed the fun and competition of Coin Rush Mode, recently surpassing more than 100 billion total coins collected worldwide," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "These new packs offer completely new levels that fit into the New Super Mario Bros. 2 world, but offer new challenges that will keep players coming back for more."
Here's the info on each of three packs being released on October 4th:
Gold Rush Pack: Fun new courses that give novice players the best chance to collect lots of gold, and veterans the chance to set even higher Coin Rush records.
Coin Challenge Pack A: The New Super Mario Bros. 2 website will track the rankings based on the scores for this pack, enabling players to measure their scores against other tallies from around the world in these more open courses.
Nerve-Wrack Pack: Intense new courses designed for veteran players looking for new challenges.
So how do you get the DLC? Simple. First, make sure you're connected to the internet and then make sure SpotPass is enabled in the game. After that, you should receive a notification from NSMB2 and the next time you enter Coin Rush mode you'll see a shop icon that you can follow to the download.
