Luigi Is In![edit]

Nintendo's Official Facebook states that Luigi will appear in this game. They also mention "other favorite characters" too, but I know thats too broad. Heres the link:[1]
The preceding unsigned comment was added by M4R10 BR0S (talk).
they might be making sound exciting but we have to have official notice for luigi, some kind of picture or artwork or text.NSMBU Fuzzy Artwork.pngYoshiGo99Yoshi Egg Tilted Artwork.png

Yes, the official Nintendo Facebook page has text, but you have to be logged in and like the page to see it. Their post reads "This just in - New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be launching for Nintendo 3DS in August! This all-new, side-scrolling adventure features Mario, Luigi and all your fave characters from the Mario series. Are you excited to play?"

Gold Mario[edit]

What does gold mario do? Is it sort of like invincible mario?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Link007 (talk).

We've only seen screenshots so far, so we don't know yet. FakeIco MCD.png MrConcreteDonkey 14:20, 21 April 2012 (EDT)
That's a good question and in fact I think that actually it's invincible Mario (he is multicolored in this form and one of these colors is gold).

¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

I think it is either a super guide, or a new powerup (possibly like White Tanooki Mario). i dont think its invincible mario, as that is too solid and shiny, plus there are golden enemies. --~ I'm Purple--Koopa--Bro. PKB FSB.png And I approve this sandwitch! ~
I think that it should not be put in the article unless we have it confirmed. I'm removing it for now, and if we do get some evidence that it is a power-up, I'll be fine with having it there. PidgeyIcon.pngRandomYoshi(TalkPMsC) 05:15, 22 April 2012 (EDT)
6 months later, its confirmed that it turns things into coins!

Are there source?[edit]

Is there a source that this game is canon? - Bill-tendo 10:26, 22 April 2012 (EDT)

My god, people these days There's plenty of sources on there.

yoshiyoshiyoshi (talk)

Dude, I'm just asking. - Bill-tendo 12:01, 22 April 2012 (EDT)

Super Mario Wiki doesn't create articles for games unless they have an official source. yoshiyoshiyoshi (talk)

Even if that was an easily answered question,that doesn't mean you should answer with such a rude-sounding reply. It's just not how you treat people.--Rosawii.pngRosalinaSilverCrownFire Rosalina.png 20:35, 28 June 2012 (EDT)

what do you want to see?, pipe cannon or cannon cannon?Tf2 fan810 (talk) 06:41, 16 September 2012 (EDT)

NSMBW is NSMB2?[edit]

I want to make it clear. NSMBW was officially called NSMB2? (I mean if Nintendo itself has declared the NSMBW can also be called NSMB2) or just an alternate title from not-official media? ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

New Super Mario Bros. Wii is the original follow-up of New Super Mario Bros. (which actually toke place some unknown amount of time after the events of Super Mario Galaxy), and I also believe it was known as New Super Mario Bros. 2 too. But everyone should know this; sometimes, developers change the titles before the release. It should have been named Super Mario 2D Land instead. By the way, despite the name sounding like a sequel, I really doubt New Super Mario Bros. 2 would take place right after New Super Mario Bros., making the game occuring before the events of Super Mario Galaxy. It is set to follow the events of Super Mario 3D Land.--Prince Ludwig 06:09, 23 April 2012 (EDT)
Actually I was looking for a simple answer, and your reply is more deducible rather than factible (something that I see with the users who created the redirects for the NMSBW article), therefore it's still unclear because you haven't said if Nintendo said that NSMBW was ever called NSMB2.

¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

Since it was a follow-up, it was always known as New Super Mario Bros. 2 by fans because New Super Mario Bros. Wii was the game's sequel. There's no source that Nintendo says it was called 2. So, it was never called New Super Mario Bros. 2 by Nintendo. But there's the real official New Super Mario Bros. 2 now (which could have its title changed at any time before the release because that name is very suited for a possible new Super Mario game based on Super Mario Bros. 2 and BS Super Mario USA, darn it).--Prince Ludwig 17:26, 23 April 2012 (EDT)
If that's the case, we should avoid that NSMBW is also called NSMB2 and add information to the article based on that because it's not official.

¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

Uh-huh. You got it. ;) --Prince Ludwig 15:00, 24 April 2012 (EDT)

NSMBW is not a sequel to NSMB, rather, a follow-up for the Wii console (obviously). Fans call it NSMB2 because it's the second installment the New Super Mario Bros. sub-series. They just add numbers to the titles of sub-series' installments that only have up to 1-2 follow-ups. (Example: PM:TTYD = PM2). However, "this" NSMB2 is considered NSMB2, because this is the 2nd NSMB game to be on a handheld. I can see why you're totally confused though. xP.--UM3000 E-102 Gamma.png

I was talking about the chronology--when those games actually toke place. I am not confused, and you didn't understand what I meant. However, I did understood what you said now.
And yes, New Super Mario Bros. Wii is after the events of New Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Galaxy, and New Super Mario Bros. 2 would have to be after Super Mario 3D Land, not directly after the events of New Super Mario Bros. because it has a 2. It was the same for Super Mario Bros. 2 since it wasn't a direct sequel to Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels. Those games are all the Super Mario series installments after all. It doesn't matter if they are on a handheld or a TV console. The chronology of the Super Mario series is not like Zelda's at all.
I know that it's the second New Super Mario game on a handheld console. It's quite obvious. And despite that, it chronologically takes place after the events of New Super Mario Bros. Wii. It's not an alternate version of New Super Mario Bros. Wii or something like that.--Prince Ludwig 10:04, 28 April 2012 (EDT)
There is no chronology in Mario as there is no Mario timeline, sorry. - Ericss 13:43, 1 May 2012 (EDT)

there was a redirect of NSMBW that was NSMB2. I think NSMB2 is just a beta name, such as super mario 3D=Super mario 3D land. TheBlitty7.pngWho Loves Dots... There's no way we would forget about a beta name, especially now. We still remember that Super Mario 3D is Super Mario 3D Land, and the things about some games that were recently released. Before was different, because the wiki was a lot different itself too, then there were lots of changes later, and the changes turned the wiki like the way it is now. So, there are things from between the classic and modern Mario sources that are forgotten or nowhere to be found again. But, there are still official sources of the classic Mario elements, fortunatly. And yes, Ericss, there is, in fact, a Mario chronology/timeline. So, don't appologize.--Prince Ludwig 16:32, 1 May 2012 (EDT)

1:you spelled apologize wrong 2:don't need 2! :) TheBlitty7.pngWho Loves Dots...

this could still be a beta name....

TheBlitty7.pngWho Loves Dots...

NSMB2 was the original name for NSMBW

Return of Mini Mario?[edit]

Look the Hidden mini blocks in the image:

I think the return of Mini Mario
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Galaxymario99 (talk).

But notice the Brick Blocks. Possibly a P-Switch can turn them into coins. So we have 2 unknown thoughts, Mini Mario or P-Switch or both.NSMBU Fuzzy Artwork.pngYoshiGo99Yoshi Egg Tilted Artwork.png

I doubt ... although it is possible, but would be meaningless to those mini blocks if there is a P-Switch?! Galaxymario99 (talk)

Maybe we should wait until the game actually releases? Flipthenote is the founder of a wiki! [2]

There's a Koopa Troopa in that screenshot. You probably do this:

1. Obtain a Mini Mushroom.

2. Stomp the Koopa, and kick its shell at the Brick Blocks.

3. Profit!

Paperphailurethemariomonster99 15:45, 6 June 2012 (EDT)

Aren't they Solid-On-Top-Platforms? Red-Cyan Toad.jpg Red-CyanToad (talk)

There are also mini warp pipes, at least that is like super mario world ... Galaxymario99 (talk)

Theres a new NSMB2 trailer and it proves that Mini Mario returns. SMWbetamushroom.gif It's Flipthenote, here to help.

Super Leaf[edit]

I remeber reading somewhere that it was in the game. But it was called a Power Leaf instead. I can't find the source though....

yoshiyoshiyoshi (talk)

It's clearly a Super Leaf. "Tanooki Leaf", "Raccoon Leaf" and now "Power Leaf"? Oh my god... It's obvious it'll be a Super Leaf. It literally means the Super Leaves will reappear. What kind of replacement do you guys expect? -_-; --Prince Ludwig 17:35, 23 April 2012 (EDT)

ALWAYS trust sources, no matter what. TheBlitty7.pngWho Loves Dots...

Well, unless they say stupid things like 'this mario kart game will not have karts. it will have tablecloths instead'.

TheBlitty7.pngWho Loves Dots...

Scuttle Bug[edit]

Well, I've gotta say that those Scuttle Bugs look different than they did in previous games. Are we sure they are Scuttle Bugs? ~ Qyzxf (talk)

Usually all characters from the Marioverse get a design revamp in various games they appear (specially enemies, for example the Mario Galaxy ones). No wonder they are scuttle bugs because they retain some basic characteristics.

¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

Spider Web[edit]

Do you think I should make the page Spider Web Hank J. Wimbleton.jpg The legend of zelda rocks(talk|edits) ShyguyYakuman.gif

We probably shouldn't make pages for anything new yet until we know more about it. aaaaaaaa Mariomario64! 16:14, 24 April 2012 (EDT)

Thats what I was thinking but I just wanted to make sure. :) Hank J. Wimbleton.jpg The legend of zelda rocks(talk|edits) ShyguyYakuman.gif I think you should add it because before they released SM3DLand they made the ink piranha page TheBlitty7.pngWho Loves Dots... Well I'd like to make that page but is there a template telling readers that the item is in an upcoming game? Because if there is, it could (and has to) be used to make it. Flipthenote is the founder of a wiki! [3]

UK release date!!!![edit]

see here: --YoshiDude 14:10, 1 May 2012 (EDT)

For preordering. I think what it means by August 12 is August 2012 just like we have been saying.NSMBU Fuzzy Artwork.pngYoshiGo99Yoshi Egg Tilted Artwork.png

NSMBMii or is it NSMB2[edit]

New Super Mario bros. Mii was a TEST, right, a DEMONSTRATION. So..mabey NEW Super Mario bros. 2 and New Super Mario bros 2 are the same game! Think about it, no person would make a game from scratch and not use the technology. Mabey The NEW SUPER MARIO BROS 2 is the final version. It IS a coincidence that a year after they made the demo that a NEW SUPER MARIO BROS. was anounced, there is also the posobility of it being on the WiiU and the 3ds like MARIO AND SONIC series. So look up some info.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lcc98 (talk).

Games have been made purely for hardware demonstation that were not released. That's why they're called Tech Demos. Additionally, New Super Mario Bros. Mii was a Tech Demo for the Wii U to demonstrate High-Definition gameplay. And the Mario game currently in development for the Wii U is based off of the tech demo. There have been no links so far to the Wii U and 3DS Mario games upcoming, so currently they are acknowledged as seperate games. There is no information you have made that is a solid fact, so it is speculation. Please save this speculation for the forums. mariofanatic64 (talk)

it's NSMB2... unless it's a beta name.

Luigi is Playable[edit]

In a Nintendo Show 3D, she says "the new platformer brings Mario and Luigi back the their side-scrolling roots" Is that enough proof? yoshiyoshiyoshi (talk)

Yes, its enough, and I saw Luigi in a video at E3.--Thejfh1999 13:24, 24 June 2012 (EDT)


Here is the official minisite of the game which reveals Golden Mario artwork as well as the story and more: User:MarioMaster720

The Koopalings Are IN![edit]

A Snapshot of Roy suggests that the Koopalings will apear in this game
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lcc98 (talk).

Numbered Roulette Blocks[edit]

I think that, since they're golden, when you hit the numbered Roulette Block it gives you that amount of coins. --Flipthenote is the founder of a wiki! [4]

Well no. Hitting the golden roulette block makes coins pop out. The coins will be worth a number, like 10, depending on what number was on the block when you hit it. --Flipthenote is the founder of a wiki! [5] 19:38, 17 June 2012 (EDT)


How do you add sources because I added a level list and I have the soruces which were videos but I dont know how to add soruces. --Boidoh 17:02, 9 June 2012 (EDT)

Undead Enemies?[edit]

In the enemies section it says there are "Undead Goombas" and "Undead Piranha Plants". I looked at all the sources and images in the gallery, but I couldn't find them anywhere. Does anyone have proof of these enemies?--MarioMaster2011 19:58, 10 June 2012 (EDT)

Check videos of people playing the game. They are in the demo of the gameNSMBU Fuzzy Artwork.pngYoshiGo99Yoshi Egg Tilted Artwork.png

Thanks, I found them. They are in Course 3 of the demo, which is some fortress level. By the way your user page is awesome.--MarioMaster2011 20:13, 10 June 2012 (EDT)

This Enemies looks like a bony enemy
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Galaxymario99 (talk).

The undead goombas seem to resemble Bony Beetles. Unlike Dry Bones, they can be destroyed by a stomp, a fireball, or Raccoon Mario's tail. The undead piranha plants look like they can only be beat by a fireball or Raccoon Mario. It also could be possible that the fortress they're in might be World 1-Fortress1-SMB3.pngFortress.--MarioMaster2011 23:06, 10 June 2012 (EDT)

Could anyone show me a pic of an undead Goomba?

EthanFerris 23:21, 16 July 2012

You should search via YouTube "new super mario bros. 2 gameplay course 3". You'll find the undead Goombas and the undead Piraña Plants there with the Rry Bones. --NewSMBU (talk) 07:39, 28 July 2012 (EDT)

actually, “undead” goombas are really headbonk goombas with a skeletal helmet

Red POW Blocks[edit]

If you look closely at the full group art, you will see a red POW Block. Should we add this? TanookiMario SM3DS.pngMario3D64SM3Dart.png It's not the first time they've been red. the red ones in this game seem to cause chain reactions though yoshiyoshiyoshi (talk)

Well I did put red next to POW Blocks. I wasn't sure if there were Blue ones to so I added (red) to it. But I think we should add something. Maybe add it to the POW Block page.NSMBU Fuzzy Artwork.pngYoshiGo99Yoshi Egg Tilted Artwork.png 21:20, 20 June 2012 (EDT)

I've got proof of them in the game! check this image out:BlocksAndCoinsNSMB2.png

TheBlitty7.pngWho Loves Dots...

We knew that since E3. We are just wondering if we should add info about what the red POW blocks do.NSMBU Fuzzy Artwork.pngYoshiGo99Yoshi Egg Tilted Artwork.png

that image shows coins that are INSIDE used blocks. isn't that odd?

TheBlitty7.pngWho Loves Dots... 14:56, 6 August 2012 (EDT)

NOT odd at all. When hitting a red POW, the blast hits the brick blocks and make them into Used Blocks then releasing the coins. --NewSMBU (talk) 14:58, 6 August 2012 (EDT)

Gold Items[edit]

This Golden Mushroom, what does it do? I know the flower turns you gold and gives the ability to shoot those fireballs that makes everything a coin, so it can't do the same thing.KoopaKiller13 13:18, 21 June 2012 (EDT) It gives you 50-100 coins, depending on whether or not you're Gold Mario. Mario3D64 17:41, 21 June 2012 (EDT)

But 100 coins is basicly a 1- up, isn't it?

TheBlitty7.pngWho Loves Dots...

No, it only appears in Coin Rush mode where there are no 1-Up Mushrooms. You have to cope with one life. - LightningLuigi93

Pictures of Golden Things[edit]

Look what i found. Pictures of the golden enemies and Invincible Raccooon Mario. And if you have 1 000 000 coins, you will get something fun! How cool! (It's in dutch) --AC4-Edward.pngArmin00ConnorKenway.png 16:37, 21 June 2012 (EDT)

Yellow Game Case[edit]

On the preorder page of the official site (, it shows that at least the American release will have a yellow box, making it the first 3DS game outside of Japan with a different box color. Should we add this? TanookiMario SM3DS.pngMario3D64SM3Dart.png

Golden 'shroom[edit]

What exactly is the difference between a Golden Mushroom and a Gold Flower? ~ Qyzxf (talk)

The mushroom gives 50 or 100 coins, the flower chances you in Gold Mario. Red-Cyan Toad.jpg Red-CyanToad (talk)

It doesn't transform him, like a Power-up? ~ Qyzxf (talk)

Correct.--Thejfh1999 13:22, 24 June 2012 (EDT)

Nintendo Network[edit]

How will this game be compitable with Nintendo Network? The logo is on he boxart, so I was wondering. ~ Qyzxf (talk)

I think it has something to do with the DLC. TanookiMario SM3DS.pngMario3D64SM3Dart.png

Blue Shell[edit]

At GS they have a picture of a Blue Shell power up on the promotion board. Will it appear, though or is it just a rumor like they had for PMSS. Mario time 64 10:51, 29 June 2012 Look at the red pow block pic. There's proof that you're right. -EthanFerris

That's a buzzy beetle shell and blue shell hasn't been confirmed at allNSMBU Fuzzy Artwork.pngYoshiGo99Yoshi Egg Tilted Artwork.png

Koopaling battles[edit]

Why are we quick to say that all of the Koopalings' battles are "most likely similar to those of Super Mario World" based off of one screenshot? How do we even know the walls are closing in? Can't we wait until August to know for sure? It's only a month away. KoopaKiller13 23:15, 2 July 2012 (EDT)

Fox Luigi?[edit]

I couldn't help but notice in the gallery Raccoon Luigi is labelled Fox Luigi. I can see why, but was this name confirmed? KoopaKiller13 10:12, 5 July 2012 (EDT)

Well, in Super Mario 3D Land he looked like a fox but was still called Tanooki Luigi so he is probably called Racoon Luigi--LuigiBlubber 17:13, 5 July 2012 (EDT)

In other languages, he really was called Kitsune Luigi. Even in Japanese, he is known as Kitsune Luigi respectly. There's no doubt that Raccoon Luigi will be respectly known as Fox Luigi. Except in Japanese because that would be Tail Luigi. But, in order to undo some confusions whether he turned into a fox/kitsune or a raccoon/tanuki which looks just like a fox, it's for the best to start calling him Fox Luigi and Kitsune Luigi.--Prince Ludwig 17:21, 5 July 2012 (EDT)

But what if that's not his official North American name? Last time I checked, the only thing we labelled with foreign names were games that came out in Europe before all other continents. When it comes to characters, items, forms, etc., we use American names, correct? KoopaKiller13 18:18, 5 July 2012 (EDT)

We did used some titles in other languages than American too. We mostly use "Super Mario All-Stars - 25th Anniversary Edition", instead of "Super Mario All-Stars Limited Edition". We can keep the article's title Raccoon Luigi (it's just an example but Raccoon Luigi surely wouldn't be the article's name though). But it won't hurt to write Fox Luigi and Kitsune Luigi everywhere else, right? It's kind of similar. Americans really need call him Fox Luigi and Kitsune Luigi, because that would cause such a terrible confusion. I'm pretty sure that most people outside this wiki will seriously call him Fox Luigi and Kitsune Luigi. But it can't be helped.--Prince Ludwig 23:36, 5 July 2012 (EDT)

White Raccoon AND White Tanooki Mario?[edit]

In the forms section, both White Raccoon and White Tanooki Mario/Luigi are listed but regular Tanooki Mario/Luigi isn't. I read the source and I believe the artwork is from Super Mario 3D Land, so I think what's in the article is a typo. Also, if the Invincibility Leaf gives the brothers the White Raccoon form, what would give them the White Tanooki form? KoopaKiller13 00:50, 12 July 2012 (EDT)

  • I got the source from My Nintendo News, so I'm not entirely sure that White Tanooki Mario's in the game. DonnyKD 02:10, 12 July 2012 (EDT)


How do you edit a page without edit signs?-----penguini1126 I want to add this video---

The article is semi-protected, meaning that only autoconfirmed users can edit it. When you have been on the wiki for a week and have made 10 edits, you will see an edit sign. BrawlROB.jpg Master R.O.B. (contribs · edits) 15:18, 12 July 2012 (EDT)

Download option[edit]

I heard that the retailers also give you the option to download the game. I knew that you can get it straight from the eShop, but how does that work if you purchase the download from the retailer? Is it like a QR or numerical code? KoopaKiller13 00:47, 13 July 2012 (EDT)

You have to buy 2 $ 20 3ds cards scratch them off,enter the codes, wait 30 minutes,then play the game sir.--Kirbyandluigi100 (talk) 20:13, 18 October 2012 (EDT)Kirbyandluigi100

Gloomba, or something like it.[edit]

If you look at some of the E3 playthroughs, when Mario jumps on the undead goomba, you will notice that a gloomba, or something like it (considering Gloombas are based on the NES underground goomba coloration, this may be a similar reference) falls of screen, meaning that it may not be a skeleton goomba, but a goomba wearing a skull on it's head. -Chaoxys

  • You're right. Judging by the artwork here: [7] the Dry Goomba's just wearing a mask. DonnyKD 21:24, 17 July 2012 (EDT)

Golden Boxart[edit]

Go here: Then click preorder. You will see that the case itself will be gold, making it the first 3DS game to be released with a different colored boxart! (In America and Europe at least.)

Confirmed features we have yet to show[edit]

A Japanese trailer shows at the end that 5-3 is the sky level that was a grassy castle exterior level, and it might show that World 5 might be the sky world (possibly, we don't know for sure). And The American website shows that 3-1 is the Cheep-Cheep level, 2-Ghost House is the level with the Mega Boo. And Fire Snakes were confirmed to be in the game a while ago (I think 2 weeks), but haven't been added into the article. In fact, they were in several trailers. And one of the pictures in the American website show that 2-3 (I think 2-3) is a level with Spike Tops. (I could make out what they looked like) Smithuser (talk)

Info concerning the worlds[edit]

As seen here [8](simply scroll down to the third video and go to 02:00) NSMB2 has 6 main worlds and 2 secret worlds, like in NSMB, although in this one, the main worlds are numbered from 1 to 6 and the secret worlds have a ?. As I also found out, the first secret world is called W-Mushroom, and it´s a pink world with white outlined Mushrooms in the background, with a few levels, many Toad houses and a castle,where Larry Koopa is the boss. You get there, if you complete the Dash Mario level in world 1. Also the fourth world is the snow world. [9] (The fourth video) selfpeelingbanana (talk)

More and more information[edit]

Morton Koopa Jr is the boss of world 4, which is a snow world and the 5th world is a mix between sky and mountain worlds.Could anybody please update the NSMB2 site with all the new information rolling in? selfpeelingbanana (talk)

You really should back your information up with valid sources, otherwise it can't be put into articles. Marioguy1 (talk)
Oh yeah sorry, I forgot. I put valid sources in my other entry at least :P selfpeelingbanana (talk)


I was expecting Chain Chomps, Monty Moles, and Venus Fire Traps. Any sign of them being in the game? YoshiCookie (talk) 10:15, 10 December 2015 (EST)

There was just a glimpse of Chain Chomps being seen in one of the websites, I think the NA one, where it could just barely be seen in the Gold Block power-up video. Not sure about the others, though. MarioComix (talk) 18:58, 28 July 2012 (EDT)

K, I'll add it. YoshiCookie (talk) 10:15, 10 December 2015 (EST)

Oops, they already did. YoshiCookie (talk) 10:15, 10 December 2015 (EST)

NEW artwork[edit]

In the just released Japan version of the game there was a small tricks and attacks poster similar to Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 3d Land. Images include Mario carrying a koopa shell and Luigi in a bubble. it also came with a mini poster similar to the one in the new super mario bros wii trading card tins with solo art of silver Luigi, broken blocks, buzzy beatles and pirahna plants, it all takes place in an under ground level. And the Back of the cover is slightly different than the US back cover. I'll have More info...

Something to be added to the trivia section[edit]

Whenever Mario is in Raccoon form, a musical beat is added to the background. It's done similarly to the drum noise that plays when riding Yoshi in most games. --KirbySuperstarUltra (talk) 16:11, 29 July 2012 (EDT)

Order of Worlds[edit]

Shouldn't the worlds (and their bosses) be listed in the order they're accessible? World Mushroom is accessed from World 1 as an alternative to World 2 and World Flower is accessible from World 3 as an alternative to World 4. Pokemega32 (talk) 10:04, 30 July 2012 (EDT)


It appears that Italy gets it later than the rest of Europe. Why is that? Usually the delay is because of the multitude of European languages that the game needs to be finished translating into, but usually it's on the same day in all of Europe... Pink_Boozooka I know I'm nitpicky, but shouldn't Italy's date on the list come right after the rest of Europe, considering it's in the same region?

Grand Undead Goomba[edit]

Is there a giant version of an Undead Goomba?

Electrical Bowser jr. (talk) 08:42, 4 August 2012 (EDT)Electrical Bowser jr.

No there's not, neither a Grand Goomba. Only Super Undead Piranha Plants which I think appeared in Mushroom-Castle. NSMBU Fuzzy Artwork.pngYoshiGo99Yoshi Egg Tilted Artwork.png 09:17, 4 August 2012 (EDT)

There kind of is because, in new super mario bros. one of the bosses was a big goomba, and the grand goomba is a boss, and last in super smash bros brawl there is an enemy specificily called “giant goomba”.

More SMW References need to be added to references[edit]

I notice in Reznor's battle when the bridge breaks it makes the sound from Super Mario World of breaking blocks and when ever you press a swich (such as the P-switch) it makes another SMW sound how it is pressed. gamermakerguy (talk),

It is worthy to add into the references to other games. I can add it in.NSMBU Fuzzy Artwork.pngYoshiGo99Yoshi Egg Tilted Artwork.png

Fire Bro.[edit]

I've noticed lots of Edits about Fire Bro., but there isn't any in this game.
Just to confirm.
Avatar 1756 1340466050.png (contribs · edits)

There is, Level 6-3. [10] at 8:37, there's about 5 of them in that one level.
I hope this clears the confusion, I've been researching the disapearance of Fire Bros for days and looked at Streetpassdubai's videos, Ultimatepisman's videos, and GameXplain. However, 6-3 was never shown, UltimatePisman showed 6-2.
--XXSuperXXNintendoXx (talk) 00:29, 10 August 2012 (EDT)
Thanks for watching my 6-2 Video, I appreciate it.
Anyway, I've been looking into it, and indeed, Fire Bro. is there!
I didn't play this Level more than once, so sorry about that.

Its not a problem, and your welcome. I refused to work on my project on Zelda Wiki, until I found a Fire Bro. because I couldn't believe that they weren't in the game. So its glad to see this case solved. As such, I don't know if we have every enemy listed? The ones I'm unsure about are Blooper variations, Blooper Nanny and Blooper Baby. I haven't checked for them yet, but since they appear in both NSMB and NSMBW, I would think there could be a chance for them to appear. Also, I love your videos.... I was trying to find a Bonecoaster video to see what it was like compared to NSMBW :) --XXSuperXXNintendoXx (talk) 02:13, 10 August 2012 (EDT)
About the Bloopers, what's the difference between Nanny and Baby?
Because it exists in this game.

Fox Luigi or Raccoon Luigi[edit]

Settledproposal.svg This talk page proposal has already been settled. Please do not edit any of the sections in the proposal. If you wish to discuss the article, do so in a new header below the proposal.

fox luigi 12-9
We're kinda having a mini-edit war about whether to call Luigi with the Super Leaf Raccoon or Fox Luigi. I'm kind of leaning towards Fox Luigi, as similarly Tanooki Luigi is officially called "Kitsune Luigi" and it says Luigi has a fox's ears and tail on the website.

Proposer: Technickal (talk)
Deadline: August 28, 2012, 23:59 GMT

Fox Luigi[edit]

  1. Technickal (talk) Per above. (EDIT: Also per Red-CyanToad)
  2. Mario3D64 (talk) What he said.
  3. Red-CyanToad (talk) Luigi looks more like a fox than like a raccoon. The Gold Mario / Silver Luigi power-up has also different names for Mario and Luigi.
  4. JORDAN DEBONO (talk) Per Red-CyanToad.
  5. Prince Ludwig (talk) Sorry, got to agree that it should be Fox Luigi, like Tanooki Luigi should be Kitsune Luigi or Kitsoone Luigi.
  6. Luigi-San (talk) Clearly looks more like a fox than a raccoon. Wouldn't make sense to call him a raccoon when he isn't even one!
  7. New Super Yoshi (talk) Per all.
  8. Ange34 (talk) It was Raccoon Luigi in SMB3, but since Nintendo decided to change his appearance I believe Fox Luigi is a better fitting name today.
  9. MarioSmasher (talk) This is the newest, latest official name and we don't keep the old one just because "ITZ MOAR POPULARZ ZO WE KEEP THE MOAR POPULARZ ONE INZTEED OF MOVING TO TEH LATEZT NAMEH". Not only, the tail and ears make him really look like a fox, not a raccoon.
  10. Lord Grammaticus (talk) Per Luigi-San.
  11. yoshiyoshiyoshi (talk) Per Lord Grammaticus
  12. Walkazo (talk) - It doesn't make sense to call a fox a "raccoon", and I'm sure Nintendo will figure that out too and officially call him "Fox Luigi" sooner or later. But in the meantime, why wait? No one else on the Internet has: Googling "Fox Luigi" results in four times the amount of hits that "Raccoon Luigi" nets, and it's in our best interests to cater to the search traffic.

Raccoon Luigi[edit]

  1. Raven Effect (talk) While I think he's a fox he's never officially been called fox luigi in America so the best option is to wait for the Prima guide to come out and clear this up.
  2. Comp52 (talk) It seems silly to me to call Mario's transformation "Raccoon Mario" and call Luigi's transformation "Fox Luigi". We should just use the same name. If it bothers some people, we could put in a note that another name for it is Fox Luigi, but otherwise...Yeah, Raccoon luigi.
  3. DonnyKD (talk) Having different ears and tails isn't the time for a name change (unless its confirmed to be Fox Luigi).
  4. Koopa K (talk) Okay, Raccoon Luigi does have fox ears and a tail, and he looks more like a fox than a raccoon, but he has never been officially refered to as fox Luigi, so until I hear someone from Nintendo call him Fox Luigi, or a game call him Fox Luigi, he is, and will always be Raccoon Luigi.
  5. Coooool123 (talk) Per All.
  6. LuigiBlubber (talk) He has the same abilities as Raccoon Mario. Just because he looks different doesn't mean he needs a new name. Plus, Nintendo of America calls him a raccoon.
  7. Luigi42 (talk) Isn't the official name for him 'Kitsune Luigi'? But yeah, we probably should just use the same name.
  8. Zero777 (talk) Per all
  9. ItsameMario (talk) Nintendo has not yet published his name to be Fox Luigi.


I agree that it's best to wait until more information becomes available before we change it, but if all else fails I'd motion for "Tail Luigi" to play it safe. The reason being is that if none of the above names are official, at least we'll have the Japanese name to fall back on. Both are a bit of a misnomer; Raccoon Mario and Tanooki Mario are at least supposed to be different animals (at least in the American naming convention - I'm pretty sure they were both meant to be raccoon dogs), but kitsune literally is the Japanese word for fox so that seems more redundant. "Tail-" is also how the Super Leaf transformations was translated for 3D Land's enemies. LinkTheLefty (talk) 18:51, 15 August 2012 (EDT)

@ Red-Cyan Toad That is different, they have been officially referred to as different, unlike Raccon Mario/Luigi. Koopa K (talk)

OK, if this proposal supports Raccoon Luigi I am going to change every single "Fox Luigi" on this page to "Raccoon Luigi" and I hope I don't have these edits changed. Koopa K (talk)

Wow. This TPP might hit the extension limit. As any proposal that has over 10 votes must be decided by a margin of 3. Koopa K (talk)

@MarioSmasher I'm pretty sure it isn't official, all the website says is he has a fox ears and a tail, not that he is called Fox Luigi, and where did you learn to spell? Koopa K (talk)

@MarioSmasher The site states Luigi looks sharp in his fox tail and ears. It does NOT say OMGEEEEEEEEEE IT'S FOX WEGEEEEEEEEEEEEE, NOT WACCOON WEEGEEEEEEEEEE!!! LuigiBlubber (talk)

@LuigiBlubber & MarioSmasher Expressing opinions is fine, but writing in that form can be disturbing. Could you please refrain from writing babyish language in Caps please. Thanks, JORDAN DEBONO (talk) 15:31, 26 August 2012 (EDT)
I know. I just illustrated how a leetspeaker or whatever could say instead of agreeing with the change. --NewSMBU (talk) 03:39, 27 August 2012 (EDT)

Don't know why so many people are heckbent on calling Raccoon Luigi Fox Luigi because he has fox ears and a tail. I don't see anyone calling Superball Mario "Super Mario that throws balls". Are we going to call Luigi's Raccoon form in SMB3 "Fox Luigi" too? DonnyKD (talk) 16:53, 27 August 2012 (EDT)

And I don't know why so many people are insisting on calling him Raccoon Luigi when he doesn't even have those features anymore. He is called Raccoon Luigi in SMB3 because he uses the same design as Raccoon Mario. They both have raccoon features. Here, they don't. Since Nintendo decided to redesign his Tanooki form and rename it Kitsune, I don't see why the same couldn't be done for his new Super Leaf look. Both names seem to be equally conjectural today since no official sources states otherwise, so why not go with the most suitable? Ange34 (talk) 18:28, 27 August 2012 (EDT)


In the case there is a trick and attack poster simmilar in disign to super mario 3d land, with artwork of raccoon mario swinging his tail, floating and flying and gold mario throwing fire balls, mario throwing a shell, fire mario, mario swiming, mario in a warp pipe, luigi in a bubble and mario and luigi with coins.

there is also a mini poster with silver luigi throwing silver fire balls brecking blocks killing pirahna plants, goombas, buzzey bettles ect.

New eShop Description[edit]

I looked on the eShop this morning and found that the game has a new description! Can someone please add it for me? TanookiMario SM3DS.pngMario3D64SM3Dart.png

Save File Stars[edit]

Please can we add how to get the save file stars to these Wiki pages, it would be really helpful! For this game, you get stars for the following; beating the game, all star coins, all secret exits & star coins spent, all moon coins, three crowns for lives. jimmyduckegg (talk)

Do it, we're okay for. --NewSMBU (talk) 17:27, 18 August 2012 (EDT)

Release Date[edit]

I see in a shop New Super Mario Bros. 2 in Mexico. But why? No the release date was August 19? Someone not seen the game in USA? Or was released first in Latin America (I asked a man who works in the shop when they sold the game and they told me that the Wednesday 15) SuperMario_3DLand (talk) 20:06, 18 August 2012 (EDT)


Even though it is pretty obvious that NSMB and NSMBW are the sequels to this game, Nintendo have released videos on eShop claiming that Super Mario Bros. 3 is the direct sequel to this game. Shouldn't we mention it in the article. JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 01:57, 24 August 2012 (EDT)

  • I see alot of errors in your comment there. Also:

"It's the thirteenth title in the main Super Mario series, the eighth title to be a Super Mario Bros. installment, the third in the New Super Mario Bros. line after New Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo DS and New Super Mario Bros. Wii for the Wii and the sequel to New Super Mario Bros." DonnyKD (talk) 02:39, 24 August 2012 (EDT)

I am not joking, trust me. A video on Nintendo eShop was released yesterday proving that Super Mario Bros. 3 is the "direct" sequel. It claims that it is the rightful successor. Since the video was only released yesterday, I cannot find any YouTube video for you, however I urge you to check the Recommended Videos in eShop. Let's put it this way, on the UK version of eShop all I said can be proved. And even though the bolded part you copied and pasted for me contradicts this, it was the very reason why I borught it up in the first place. JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 02:48, 24 August 2012 (EDT)
When they said SMB3 was the "direct" sequel, they were referring to the fact that it has things like the Super Leaf, Wooden Blocks, and such. NSMB2 is the direct sequel to NSMBDS, and NSMBW and NSMBU are not only direct sequels to each other, but follow-ups to the portable games. You could say that NSMB2 is SMB3's spiritual successor, but direct sequel? Not likely. DonnyKD (talk) 03:55, 24 August 2012 (EDT)
Well if you put it that way, I suppose you're right. Although I still think a mention would be an idea, at least in the Trivia section... JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 05:01, 24 August 2012 (EDT)

Add On Content[edit]

Before NSMB2 was released, there was an icon on eShop representing Add On Content however no info was given. Having said this, the official website states that new stages for Coin Rush can be purchased and received via SpotPass. Here's the link: [11] Skip to the second paragraph. JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 05:21, 24 August 2012 (EDT)

  • According to the e-manual, the DLC will be purchased in-game by a shop in Coin Rush that will be opened soon, and we will get a SpotPass notification when it opens. Also, you can't buy individual stages, just packs of 3. Hope this helped! TanookiMario SM3DS.pngMario3D64SM3Dart.png
This can get a little confusing before the DLC is released, but I will create a short paragraph so we don't forget about it. Thanks, JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 03:12, 25 August 2012 (EDT)

Collection Notices[edit]

Should we add the notifications that pop up when you recieve a certain of Coins? If so, let's have a thing at the top of the section that says "Note: All notifications not shown state "You collected XXX coins!" and just show the ones that appear on the title screen (they are different). So...should we do this? Mario3D64 (talk) 16:43, 24 August 2012 (EDT)

As of now I don't have the game so I don't know what you're referencing, but if it's something of importance that is exclusive to this game, then go ahead and add it. JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 03:20, 25 August 2012 (EDT)

Glitch Page[edit]

I just found a glitch while I was playing that I would like to add to a glitch page. SMWbetamushroom.gif It's Flipthenote, here to help.

What is the glitch? If you would be kind enough as to explain the steps to perform it I'm sure another owner of the game will be happy to confirm it and allow you to add it. Otherwise, you can simply take a video or screenshot of it or find one over the Internet to prove the glitch. Unfortunately I cannot verify it for you myself since my copy hasn't arrived yet. JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 16:22, 25 August 2012 (EDT)

I have made a video of the glitch. It's not uploaded yet, but I can do it later. It doesn't have as much quality as some other pieces of media on Super Mario Wiki, since I don't have any idea how to do that. SMWbetamushroom.gif It's Flipthenote, here to help.

SMWbetamushroom.gif It's Flipthenote, here to help.

That's great Flipthenote! Feel free to add it any time you want to. As for a reference, a single screenshot of the Koopa stuck is more than enough to prove it, so long as a description can accompany it. As for the quality for the picture, you will need a decent camera and good lighting, but don't make it overly bright. Just centre the camera and rest it on a table and click the shoot button without too much shake and rumble. Screens are tricky to shoot but if anyone else knows a better method than please help us. If there is no other solution, then that should be good enough. And you're quite the glitch finder, I have to say! JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 03:08, 26 August 2012 (EDT)

Does the glitch page have to be a subpage of this one? SMWbetamushroom.gif It's Flipthenote, here to help.

No a new page must be made to keep an order like all other articles. You can place a link on this article under the Beta Elements. If you need help in creating the page or anything else, don't hesitate to ask :) JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 15:22, 26 August 2012 (EDT)
Hey I also noticed this glitch, however sometimes Goombas will move straight up in a line untill one block from above and walk fartherover the Bricks. If you don't get what I'm saying I can try to explain more clearly. ~ Qyzxf (talk)
If you could provide a video or screenshot as Flipthenote did it would be very helpful. Once it is verified, it can be added to the Glitch page. JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 10:34, 29 August 2012 (EDT)

I have found that Goombas can get stuck too. This way they 'follow' Mario. The P-Switch under the first Moon Coin must be pressed this time, and go to the left careful not to get a Goomba on the screen. When the P-Switch is about to wear off Mario must get a Goomba on screen. If done correctly the Goomba is stuck and is 'following' Mario. SMWbetamushroom.gif It's Flipthenote, here to help.

D-Pad, Analog Stick or both?[edit]

Do you have to play with the D-Pad, Analog Stick or both? AC4-Edward.pngArmin00ConnorKenway.png 14:11, 30 August 2012 (EDT)

Moving Mario, you need to use the Circle Pad OR the D-Pad, the choice is yours though. You can't use both at the same time though. JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 14:52, 30 August 2012 (EDT)

The D-pad is only for minor stuff.Tf2 fan810 (talk) 06:22, 16 September 2012 (EDT)

What is this for?[edit]

The article says:

Before the events of the game, Mario and Luigi visit Princess Peach in her castle to talk about their adventures together. Sooner, they leave the castle by flying away in raccoon suits, happily collecting coins in the air. However, as soon as they land, the Koopalings suddenly appear, crashing their Koopa Clown Car onto the ground, as well as damaging the brothers, making them lose their raccoon power-ups. Roy Koopa reveals Princess Peach from his back. They soon flew away in their Koopa Clown Car, and Mario and Luigi chase after them.

It's a bit weird that Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach are bolded. Also, Koopalings is in italic. Why is that there? SMWbetamushroom.gif It's Flipthenote, here to help.

I thought the same thing. It's removed now. Next time don't hesisate to do it yourself. Then if someone undos your edit, you can bring it up here :) JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 21:26, 11 September 2012 (EDT)

Subpages for Main Page[edit]

Considering how long the page for New Super Mario Bros. 2 is, I think it would be a good idea to make subpages in order to make the main page shorter. Mr. Kite (talk) 23:11, April 20, 2020 (EDT)

This is actually something I've been meaning to bring up for a while now, but never had the time to really sit down and coordinate something. MarioWiki:Article size says overly long pages (for example, Bowser's, our longest non-list article) can be split, the discussion of how to do so should happen before going ahead with anything. And there are a lot of pages that meet this criteria. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:13, April 20, 2020 (EDT)
