It’s been more than 20 years since Nintendo’s highly acclaimed franchise, Super Mario
Bros., first hit store shelves. On May 7, eager fans from Mario’s classic days must wait no longer to see the brothers return in an all-new platformer with the launch of New Super Mario Bros. for Nintendo DS.
On the heels of Valentine’s Day romance is in the air, even in the Mushroom Kingdom. But Princess Peach wasn’t able to celebrate with her special someone, seeing that she’s been taken prisoner by Bowser and Bowser Jr. Only the Mario Bros. can rescue the princess from her evil captors as they battle familiar enemies like Goombas and Koopas along with new foes and big bosses.
New Super Mario Bros. is loaded with features and characters that could only exist in the Mushroom Kingdom, including all-new power-ups like the Blue Shell, in which Mario can ride, and a massive Mushroom that makes him ultra-huge. The title features stunning 3-D models moving through lavish, cleverly designed 2-D worlds, culminating in a final showdown for the freedom of Princess Peach.
Then, on June 5, another title launches for Nintendo DS. In Magnetica, marbles roll down a twisted path toward the goal and it’s up to players to stop them by launching new marbles into the oncoming ones. The marbles will disappear if players match three or more in this massive marble elimination. All actions are controlled with the stylus in this title that satisfies even the strongest puzzle addiction.
