If you’ve been enjoying New Super Mario Bros. 2′s Coin Rush stages, be prepared to embrace the final lot of Add-on Content for this particular title. Out now worldwide, you can purchase the Mystery Adventure Pack and the Impossible Pack from the in-game Shop.
The Mystery Adventure Pack features three courses that challenge you to look for different paths on your way to the goal in ways you didn’t see in the game’s original courses: explore the various underground routes in Course 1, ride on flying blocks as you collect coins in the auto-scrolling Course 2 and use the various objects placed throughout Course 3 to find your way to the end.
As its name suggests, the Impossible Pack ramps up the difficulty to extreme levels – only hardened Mario players need apply because these levels might be some of the hardest in Super Mario history. There isn’t a single power up or even a coin in the entire pack and the only way to receive coins is to complete the course as quickly as you can. Getting to the end is far from easy though!
