A brand new video game is rolling out of Nintendo headquarters in just a few weeks. The New Super Mario Bros. 2, exclusive to the 3DS, will released on August 19. The game sees Mario making his way to Bowser’s castle yet again to rescue the kidnapped Princess Peach, only this time, Mario’s ultimate challenge will be to collect some mega coins along the way (one million, to be exact).
Although much of the newest installment is reminiscent of the original Super Mario Bros, it’s plain to see Mario has certainly grown over the years (and we don’t mean by way of a red mushroom)! The first Super Mario Bros, which burst out onto the video game scene 27 years ago, saw our heroic plumber as a simple 8-bit character, a big difference from today’s high- flying 2.5D golden Mario! And even though he’s been doubling in graphics ever since, the star of one of the best-selling video games of all time still has a special place in our video game playing hearts.
If you still love retro Mario as much as we do, here’s a look at a few pixelated products that gets back to bit basics.
