Two more NSMB 2 Map Packs have been released in Japan

Every time I report on a New Super Mario Bros. 2 Map Pack DLC, it's only announced for Japan at that point in time. The catch is, by the time I actually get the story up, it's released worldwide. But today, I'm onto you, Nintendo! Given Nin...

Review: New Super Mario Bros. 2
