'New Super Mario Bros. 2' PAL release date confirmed, new trailer

By
New Super Mario Bros. 2 has been given a European release date.

The upcoming platform sequel will launch in PAL territories on August 17, two days before its North American release.

The announcement was accompanied by a trailer, which details the game's coin theme.


The video explains the game's new Gold Block power-up, the Gold Ring collectible and Gold Mario, who can throw gold fireballs that transform blocks and enemies into coins.

It also details Coin Rush, a new high-score mode, in which scores can be shared and challenged via StreetPass.

Additional Coin Rush levels will be added to the game as post-launch DLC.

It was recently revealed that New Super Mario Bros 2 will feature two-player co-operative play.

The entire single-player campaign will support two players in New Super Mario Bros 2, with one player controlling Mario and the second as Luigi.

When playing co-operatively, the camera will follow whichever player is in the lead, with the second player turning into a bubble if they do not keep up.

Earlier today, Nintendo announced that the redesigned 3DS XL would launch in July.
