Nintendo has uploaded a video showcasing the Scarlet Red 2DS, which comes pre-loaded with New Super Mario Bros. 2. The bundle is available today. 

Watch the reveal trailer below:

The New 2DS XL is the hot new thing for Nintendo in the 3DS line right now, but the company hasn’t forgotten about the original 2DS. Next month, the big N will be shipping out a new bundle.

Consumers will soon be able to pick up a white-and-red 2DS system with New Super Mario Bros. 2. The game will come pre-installed. It’s slated for August 25 at a $79.99 price point.

Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, said in a statement:

“Nintendo 2DS is the ideal system for parents that want to introduce their kids to the creative world of Nintendo that they grew up with. Its budget-friendly price and huge library of games will provide hours of entertainment for the whole family – whether after school, on the weekends or even while traveling.”

New Super Mario Bros. 2 shipped in 2012, yet it’s back in the news after more than four years. In a new post on its website, Nintendo of Europe shares a noteworthy statistic about the game. To date, players have collected over 2.7 trillion coins worldwide, and that number continues to rise.

Nintendo previously announced that the New Super Mario Bros. 2 coin count had surpassed one trillion. That was back in August 2013.


A gold and white 2DS based on New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be releasing in Japan on December 15. The 2DS will come with a 4GB SD card that has New Super Mario Bros. 2 installed and an AC adapter. It’s probably no coincidence that this edition is releasing the same month as Super Mario Run will hit iOS stores. We’ll update if the system is announced for other territories.



The Play Nintendo YouTube account has kicked off what appears to be a new video series. Watch the first episode below as Andrew and his “snappy” friend Izzy highlight New Super Mario Bros. 2.

Walmart will be selling the 3DS XL above on Black Friday. It will be available for only $149.99! New Super Mario Bros. 2 will come pre-installed.

A new Nintendo 2DS bundle has just been revealed by the Nintendo Europe Twitter account.

This bundle includes a red and white 2DS console along with a special copy of New Super Mario Bros. 2 which includes all 30 Coin Rush challenges. The challenges were originally released for the game as DLC.

The bundle will be released in Europe on the 4th of July.
