U.S. boxart for New Super Mario Bros. 2 makes the game’s focus pretty clear from the get-go. Gotta make that money man, that money man, it’s still the same now.
More than a few people have already noted the connection between the game’s concept and Nintendo’s cash grab…

New Super Mario Bros. 2’s E3 trailer. Okay, let’s take a break from Wii U stuff for a bit and have a look at this coin-obsessed Nintendo 3DS game. With all this focus on collecting coins, I’m surprised it’s not a Wario title! And I’m not sure yet how Nintendo will be able to make collecting millions of coins compelling…
New Super Mario Bros. 2 releasing for 3DS on August 19 with a huge focus on gold — gold coins, gold enemies, even gold Mario. Oh, and Paper Mario: Sticker Star and Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon will release on 3DS this holiday season.

This screen summarizes what Nintendo showed for Wii U and its GamePad during this afternoon’s live stream (click for a larger version). The New Super Mario Bros. tease is nice — if unsurprising — but what Wii U brings to the table is Miiverse, the social community permeating the console and its games. There’s a hint of achievements, too.
I already posted a synopsis for the Nintendo Direct presentation at Gamasutra, where you can read about Miiverse, other GamePad features, and the Wii U Pro Controller. I’m really excited about Miiverse, and will try to post more about it later if I can find time to.

Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii, a fanmade hack promising “a hundred new levels, plus new maps, music, gameplay mechanics, graphics, enemies and more.” This looks really fun, but I wonder how it fares during multiplayer chaos?
You’ll need a homebrew-capable Wii and a copy of the game (one you should acquire legally, of course) to play this mod when it releases this November.

The next New Super Mario Bros. game is… Coin World! Nintendo and Capcom have teamed up to create a medal game allowing users to bet and win tokens in minigames that use New Super Mario Bros. Wii assets.
These four-player machines are currently being location tested in Japan — considering that medal games aren’t too popular in the States, don’t expect to see them here!
Still, it’s interesting that Nintendo’s sharing one of its top properties with Capcom again, which we haven’t really seen since The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. Perhaps the partnership is due to the Wii-based arcade board that Capcom/Eighting created for Tatsunoko vs. Capcom?
Yes, one more post about a Super Mario Bros. romhack! This time it’s for New Super Mario Bros. 3, a fanmade game that recreates the levels of NES classic Super Mario Bros. 3 through a patch for New Super Mario Bros. DS.
As you can see in the extended trailer above, developer SKJmin has not only dropped in all eight worlds from Super Mario Bros 3., but also the stages from other Mario and non-Mario titles (e.g. Metroid). There’s some original levels in the patch, too. What you won’t get in this homebrew release are power-ups from the original games, so don’t expect to rock that shit with Kuribo’s shoe. :o(
While the patch requires a ROM of New Super Mario Bros., we advise you to not pirate the game and obtain this digital copy through legal means — though the legality of current methods are still up for debate.

The New Super Mario Bros. theme, made using Made in Ore/WarioWare DIY’s music editor. How great is it that the music player is Balloon Fight themed?
It does have the unfortunate side effect of getting the Balloon Fight “Balloon Trip” music stuck in my head. Here’s the earworm in question:

Insane Luigi-tossing New Super Mario Bros. Wii clip. I’ve kept away from videos like this to prevent myself from “spoiling” the experience before I actually purchase the game, but I put aside that self-imposed media blackout earlier today after playing PETA’s New Super Chick Sisters parody, which, to my surprise, isn’t awful! Well, unless you count the unskippable videos of chicken cruelty at slaughterhouses. That part was sorta awful.
Anyway, after playing that Flash game, I also watched 1UP’s multiplayer playthrough of a few levels from New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Even with players turning against each other, purposefully throwing their friends into bottomless pits and hogging power-ups, this looks like a supremely fun multiplayer experience. I guess those of you that’ve actually followed updates and new videos posted for the game already knew that, though.
Oh, and enjoy this expert playthrough on an NSMB Wii level that has more bullets shooting across the screen than you’ll see in any game that isn’t a shoot’em up:
[Update: Wow, I just noticed in this video that when you throw a fireball, it melts ice blocks that it bounces off of. Nice detail! Why haven’t I paid attention to this stuff?!]

So, Nintendo didn’t announced the New Super Mario Bros. 2 game I hoped for, but this will do! 2D? Co-op gameplay? Throwing each other River City Ransom-style? New propellor and penguin outfits? I can get on that. And it releases this holiday season, which is nice!
It’s not a game I can take along for a picnic with my wife, but it still looks like something we can enjoy together.
[Update: Oh, rumor has it the Koopalings are back!]

Fanmade New Super Mario Bros. 2 logo.
Everyone seems psyched to hear about a new Super Mario Bros. game for Wii, but I’d rather have a new DS release instead (not a big surprise). I wouldn’t mind if it was styled after Doki Doki Panic like SMB 2 for NES, either — in fact, I’d love that. Luigi was boss in that game.
My wife and I had a lot of fun with New Super Mario Bros. It was a great game to take out for sunny day picnics.
Nintendo’s E3 press conference begins in 30 minutes! It’s doubtful that the company will announce NSMB 2, but today seems to be a day when even impossible dreams can come true. Oh, and make sure to follow our Twitter feed for Nintendo conference snarkiness.
