The lights are on
New Super Mario Bros. 2 players have cumulatively collected over 300 billion coins, and to celebrate Nintendo has released free DLC for the game that features classic levels from the original Super Mario Bros., and Super Mario Bros. 3. The DLC is available immediately and includes recreations of the first two levels and Bowser's castle from the original Super Mario Bros., what appears to be a sort of greatest hits collage from Super Mario Bros. 3, and more.
You can see the announcement below, as well as some video clips from the DLC, and instructions on how to download it. The DLC is free for now, but starting on February 1, it will cost $2.50.
