Nintendo revealed a new trailer, release date and DLC details for New Super Mario Bros. 2 during the Direct conference earlier today.
The latest side-scrolling platformer starring your favourite Mushroom Kingdom duo is bringing with it a whole new objective: collect as many coins and possible. Nintendo announced plans to exchange your real-life coins for extra content with paid-DLC on the cards, becoming shortly available after release. Satoru Shibata, president of Nintendo Europe, noted that the team will only start working on the DLC after the main game has been finished.
The extra content will be additional levels independent of the main game, added to the Coin Rush feature and based on feedback from players.
New Super Mario Bros. 2 is due out August 17th in Europe, and 19th in North America.
