Even though Wario is the character from the Mushroom Kingdom typically associated with a gold obsession, Mario is getting the Midas Touch in New Super Mario Bros. 2 as well. Quite literally in fact, as a special block will turn all of the Koopa Troopas and Goombas into solid gold versions of themselves.
That’s not the only golden opportunity Mario will have. Pounding a special coin block wraps his head in a box that continuously spits out coins. And obtaining the Golden Fire Flower… you guessed it… presses blocks and enemies into mountains of coins.
New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be available for the 3DS on August 19.
