New Super Mario Bros. 2 was released this past August and Nintendo has announced fans of the game have collected a total of 300 billion gold coins in a little over 3 months. To celebrate the milestone, Nintendo is offering a new piece of DLC called the Gold Classics Pack for free for a limited time.
The Gold Classics Pack includes three new courses inspired by older Mario titles like Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 3. Each course can be played through the game's Coin Rush mode and will allow players to share their records with other player's through the game's StreetPass feature.
As of now, the Gold Classics Pack is completely free to download until Feb. 1, 2013 where the Gold Classics Pack will be available to purchase for $2.50.
300 billion gold coins in a Mario game would definitely be an impressive milestone, but seeing as all you need to do is blink on New Super Mario Bros. 2 in order to receive hundreds of coins, this milestone may not be that big of a deal. 300 billion gold coins in any other Mario game, like Mario Paint, would certainly be an impressive milestone.
