Christmas came a little early for Mario fans this year, as Nintendo announced that a new batch of downloadable levels, inspired by classic Mario stages, will be coming to New Super Mario Bros. 2 today, free of charge.
In the most recent edition of Nintendo Direct, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata revealed that players who own a copy of New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be able to download the Golden Classics Pack, which will be free to purchase until January 31 (after which it will retail for 200 Yen, or $2.50 USD). Unlike previous Coin Rush add-ons, though, this new set of challenges will be an amalgam of levels drawn from the plumber’s earliest– and most influential– adventures. These levels include:
- Round 1 (Mario Bros.)
- Levels 1-1, 1-2, and 1-4 (Super Mario Bros.)
- Levels 1-1 and 1-5 (Super Mario Bros. 3)
The Golden Classics Pack goes live today around the world. An English version of the same Nintendo Direct presentation can be seen below.
