Mario Hits the Mushroom Kingdom Jackpot. Mario has returned to the 2D platforming handheld experience, this time on the 3DS. The game was shown off at Nintendo’s E3 conference for a brief moment, however, we do have the video and some pictures for you all!

Bowser has once again kidnapped Princess Peach, but this time, Mario has another objective. The Mushroom Kingdom is bursting with more gold coins than before. Each level is littered with gold as coins rain down from overhead pipes, trails of coins are left behind special gold enemies and gold pipes transport Mario into coin-filled caverns. It’s up to players to collect as many coins as possible throughout their adventure.


• The game records all the coins players collect throughout the game, so completing a level is only part of the fun. Every level is filled with golden opportunities, such as gold rings that turn enemies into valuable gold versions and a Gold Flower that gives Mario the ability to turn almost anything in his path into coins.

• The return of Raccoon Mario gives Mario the ability to fly and access hidden areas.

• Players will have the option to either purchase the game at retail stores or download the entire game through the Nintendo eShop.
