Nintendo: New Super Mario Bros 2 coin-collecting isn't a gimmick
Matt Ryan of Nintendo of Canada has spoken out to defend the coin-collecting craziness of New Super Mario Bros 2, insisting that it isn't a gimmick. He told MarioHat:
“It’s not the same with a gimmick. It’s not a ‘gimmick,’ it’s the jackpot. That’s what it is, no doubt; you are collecting coins like crazy in that game. It’s insane how many coins you’re going to collect; the amount of 1UPs you’re going to get are going to help you, yes, but it’s like hitting the jackpot because there’s coins everywhere. And Gold Mario is able to throw gold fireballs, which allow you to gold everything else.
“There’s basically every single opportunity to get coins that you could possibly think of, and you want to get them all.”
What are your thoughts on the issue? Would you prefer a 'normal' Mario title, or are you a fan of what you've seen of NSMB2 so far?
