A cute as a button preview of New Super Mario Bros. 2

New Super Mario Bros. 2 had a lot going against it at E3 this year. It's already been shown up by its better looking, more extravagantly adorned older brother New Super Mario Bros. U. It was only available for preview during select times at the show. As our man Tony Ponce pointed out, the game has very little to show for itself in terms of visual identity. The list goes on. 

The game did have a few things going for it though. It has some cool new power-ups (Golden Mario and his insanely overpowered fireballs, the return of Raccoon Mario, and more), it seems to be more fast paced than prior New Super Mario Bros. games, and perhaps most importantly for the sake of its showing at E3, it was demoed by one of the most pleasant and likable people I've met in while. Her lack of knowledge of the Mario series may cause anyone who takes the notion of "game cred" seriously to cringe, but for the those us with any real priorities, there is nothing not to like about this human being. 

Thanks for talking to me about videogames, human being!
