New Super Mario Bros. 2 is the third game in the New Super Mario Bros. series. It involves another appearance of the Koopalings. Like New Super Mario Bros., the playable characters are Mario and Luigi. Another big thing is that the Raccoon suit reappears from Super Mario Bros. 3 and the Fox suit reappears from Super Mario 3D Land. This is the only New Super Mario Bros. game based on coin collecting.


On the roof of the castle, Raccoon Mario and Fox Luigi say goodbye to Princess Peach as they fly away from the castle to collect some coins. They later land as Bowser's Koopa Clown Car (filled with Koopalings) knocks out Raccoon Mario and Fox Luigi, taking the suit away from them. The Koopalings revealed that they have kidnapped Peach. Then, they leave the screen as the brothers follow them. The brothers chase the Car around. When they stop, Ludwig launches a fireball creating New Super Mario Bros. 2 and billions of coins. 4 coins land on the grass while the other go everywhere else. Mario and Luigi collect 2 coins and chase the Car again as Luigi collects the other 2 coins and follows Mario.

Before the player starts a world, the Koopaling boss of the world will take the Princess to a tower. After defeating the Reznors in the tower, the Koopaling will take the Princess to his castle. After the Koopaling is defeated in his/her castle, Mario will access to the next room by grabbing the key and see the next Koopaling boss (with the exception of Larry and Lemmy) of the next world and the Princess. The Koopaling will taunt and take the Princess to the new world.

After Ludwig is defeated, the brothers are about to rescue Peach until an empty Koopa Clown Car transports Peach to Bowser's Castle. In Bowser's Castle, the Koopalings revealed they had survived their defeat and attempt to petrify Mario and Luigi. During the first battle with Bowser, Mario and Luigi must hit the switch. Then, the Koopalings appear and turn Bowser giant. Then, Giant Bowser will rise the lava and battle the player(s). The player(s) must reach the top to hit the switch to defeat Bowser and rescue Peach. They later leave the Castle while the brothers fly with their suits and Mario holding Peach's hand. While they fly, the Koopalings are later seen in the background backwards with Bowser and the destroyed Koopa Clown Car.

The brothers can access World-Star with 90 star coins. The boss here is Dry Bowser and his battle is the same with Bowser.
