"New Super Mario Bros. 2 wants money for old rope. But here's the problem: the rope is so shiny, so polished, so comfortingly familiar and so much fun that it's sometimes difficult to care.Click here to read more...

Yep, we're going to be making the most of those Rakuten voucher codes today. But this is a very fine price for a very fine handheld. If you're not too bothered about shelling out double the price for a New 3DS, then this is a good way of getting into 3DS gaming right now, though rumours suggest Nintendo have discontinued the old model, meaning we might see this older version go even lower in the coming weeks.
Then again, there's no time like the present. Cheers FantasyDeals.
Looking for a hot handheld console bundle deal this Christmas? Well, Rakuten might have you covered with this 3DS package.
It's a pretty good deal just at face value, but it's worth noting that Rakuten are running a promotion 25% back in Super Points up to a maximum of £25, for which this qualifies (offer ends 7th of December). If you use the points gained here to buy Pokemon Alpha Sapphire / Omega Ruby or Super Smash Bros 3DS, you can get those games for an extra £7.39 / £10.02 respectively, and also claim a free game via Nintendo's own initiative.
Here's how it works (via HUKD's JohnnyRoller): "The points are added within 72 hours from the the 7th so you could use the points on either Pokemon Alpha Sapphire or Omega Ruby meaning you only pay £7.39 extra which would then qualify you for the free game promotion. So for £107.38 you would have a 3DS and 3 top brand new games. If you don't like Pokemon you could get Smash Bros using the points and pay £10.02 on top of the points which also qualifies for the free game."
Here are the links to the best deals for those games at Rakuten:

If you're looking to buy into the Nintendo 3DS, Amazon may have an offer you can't refuse. You can get a free copy of New Super Mario Bros. 2 with a limited edition white 3DS XL - which also comes pre-installed with Mario Kart 7.

We couldn't really understand why Nintendo would create a game that involves collecting as much bling as you can possibly find, but provide no real incentive to do so.
Well, that's all changed, as Nintendo announced this week that players who earn over 1 million coins in the game will nab themselves a shiny new certificate to commemorate their gold digging achievements.Click here to read more...
Nintendo announced the release of the Gold Classics Pack today for New Super Mario Bros. 2, which will serve up a banquet of three Coin Rush levels based on classics from Super Mario Bros.and Super Mario Bros. 3.
However, the best bit is that Nintendo are offering the pack for free until the end of next January as a big thank you to everyone's helped collect over 300 billion coins in New Super Mario Bros. 2 thus far.
You can buy the pack from the "Shop" button in the Coin Rush sub-menu. Of course, before that happens, you'll need to activate said button via SpotPass. Confused? Click here for more details.
Thanks to Jason for the inital tip.
Three content packs for New Super Mario Bros 2 will be hitting the 3DS eShop today, including the Gold Rush Pack (get 30,000 coins against the clock), Coin Challenge Pack (a leaderboard challenge), and a masochistic Nerve-Wrack Pack (does exactly what it says on the tin). Each will set you back £2, and you can watch them in action in a new Nintendo Direct Mini presentation.
We awarded Nintendo's latest platformer with a 7/10 score in our New Super Mario Bros 2 review, suggesting that the coin collection hasn't been integrated into the core Mario experience in a particularly relevant or thoughtful way.
Here comes a new challenger. Despite Sleeping Dogs still deservedly selling very well indeed, Guild Wars 2 has romped into the top spot in its first week. It's the second-largest non-WoW MMO launch ever, clocking in behind SWTOR. Carl will be bringing us an episodic look at the anticipated sequel, which started last week.
Elsewhere, Darksiders II is slowly sliding down the rankings, with Brendan suggesting that it isn't quite as vast an improvement as we'd previously hoped. Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and the Olympics tie-in are still hanging on, and Modern Warfare 3 has steamed seven places up the charts to return to the top ten.Click here to read more...
Wei Shen is still on top of the charts this week, with Sleeping Dogs beating off fierce competition from THQ's smash sequel Darksiders II. High Moon's Transformers: Fall of Cybertron makes it in at number five, with Dead Island GOTY and The Amazing Spider-Man making way in the top ten for the newcomers.
Brendan's beavering away on Darksiders II review as I type, but you can find out why you really need to pay attention to The Game Formerly Known As True Crime Hong in our Sleeping Dogs Review.Click here to read more...

We still don't know why New Super Mario Bros. 2 isn't a Wario game.
The hygienically challenged antihero is driven by the greedy acquisition of treasure, which is the only particularly 'new' thing that Mario's latest handheld outing brings to the table. As well as giving everyone's favourite scumbag a well-deserved day in the sun and allowing Nintendo to experiment with some new ideas, repurposing the project under a different name would have also helped to rid us of that irony-infused title. It's technically correct since New Super Mario Bros. 2 serves as a sequel to the old New Super Mario Bros. (give me strength...) that released on the DS six years ago, but it's otherwise hilariously disingenuous. This new title retreads old ground with almost every step, providing a shinier take on the same levels and challenges of the 2006 original with a few other cues taken directly from Super Mario Bros. 3.
Except, this time, there's gold. GOOOOOOOOLD! Enough dosh to choke a whale, enough cash to solve third world debt with change left over, enough to make you believe in your soul; a copious, staggering, obscene amount of wonga spilled by every enemy, block and powerup.
And nothing to spend it on.

All change please. Two new entries have leaped onto the very top of this week's software charts: the excellent open-world Kung Fu-fighting Sleeping Dogs and New Super Mario Bros. 2. With the Olympics at an end, the tie-ins are gradually percolating down the top ten, flanked by a couple of familiar faces.
Matt awarded this week's top dog with 9/10 in our Sleeping Dogs Review, suggesting that it would become "riotous summer smash hit." Turns out that he was right on the money.Click here to read more...
Following the release of New Super Mario Bros. 2 on the 3DS (review incoming), Nintendo has defended their decision to iterate on the franchise rather than innovate; stating that they only release a 2D Mario game "once per platform" before looking to fresh ideas. This practice seems likely to continue... unless Miyamoto decides otherwise.Click here to read more...
Nintendo has confirmed that the first retail games will hit the 3DS eShop this Thursday, headlining with New Super Mario Bros. 2 at £39.99. It's accompanied by New Art Academy (£29.99) and Freakyforms Deluxe (£24.99), with Nintendo promising to release all future first party titles in this way along with traditional boxed retail versions.
Some gamers may find the download option convenient, and appreciate the fact that they can play games a day before release (NSMB 2 is out on Friday). But is it £10 more convenient that pre-ordering a copy from ShopTo or GAME?
There's so much gold in this latest trailer for upcoming 3DS title New Super Mario Bros. 2. that Mario literally showers himself with the stuff. He also turns miniature and walks on water before transforming into a giant and trashing a level to a smattering of applause.
Japan is getting the game this Saturday, but New Super Mario Bros. 2 will hit Europe on August 17th, two days before it drops in the US.Watch the trailer after the jump...
They say that money can't buy you happiness, but that's pretty much the premise of New Super Mario Bros. 2. Here's a new trailer for the upcoming 3DS platformer, which focuses on the acquisition of delicious gold by any means necessary.
