New Super Mario Bros. 2 (3DS) Trailer

It’s all about the money, and then some, in this new trailer for New Super Mario Bros. 2.

I feel like every time I watch a new trailer for New Super Mario Bros. 2 – coming to the Nintendo 3DS this August 19 (North America) – I imagine the weird gold-obsessed villain, Goldmember, from the third and likely final Austin Powers movie starring Mike Myers. And the weirdest part is, I don’t think I’ve seen that movie even once.

Just maybe, NSMB2′s core-game emphasis on gold-coin collecting is powerful enough to make people believe they’ve seen movies they haven’t. Or. Perhaps, I did see the movie and “Men In Black” mind-erased it from my memory because it was horrible in ways unimaginable. (Survey says… *ding* the latter.)

Either way, enjoy this awesome new snippet of gameplay from New Super Mario Bros. 2. Not only does it re-address how important nabbing the Mushroom Kingdom’s shiny currency is with-in the game, but also shows off cool thematic-callbacks that should delight fans of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World.

I swear there’s enough gold coins in that one trailer to make even Scrooge McDuck envious. In fact this game might be up his alley, but if it’s not for you dear reader, Walyou has tons more geeky goodies to keep you well entertained. My personal two favorites right now: news about a Mega Man and Sonic the Hedgehog crossover comic in 2013, and these 21 child-like paintings of famous showdowns across movie history. Check them out!
