GP: "It's hard to believe but New Super Mario Bros. is a series that has been around for 6 years now. Six years - this is why I feel old nowadays. The original 2006 game marked a return to the classic 2D side-scrolling nature that Mario games were initially known for and was critically acclaimed for capturing the magic of the NES games, yet bringing the gameplay into a modern era. One Wii sequel and six years later, New Super Mario Bros. 2 is set to do what its predecessor did but this time on the 3DS and with a whole new incentive: coin collecting. Lots and lots of it. Does it succeed, or is the series starting to show signs of age?"
