New Super Mario Bros. took the stage when it was released on the Nintendo DS in May of 2006. With universal acclaim, the latest installment into the main Super Mario series was a hit, selling over 26 million copies and becoming the best-selling Nintendo DS game to date. Then, at E3 2009, Nintendo unveiled a sequel to their highly successful game. While New Super Mario Bros. Wii was in the sense a new game, the similarities between the two leave a simple question among gamers. Was this game a true sequel or simply a rehash and a quick grab for cash?
