In the latest NSMB2 trailer, we finally found out the purpose of those ‘blue cannon‘ levels. It had been confirmed as ‘Dash levels” in which Mario gets launched out of a cannon and can’t stop running until hitting the flagpole, collecting dozens of coins along the way. You must time your jumps correctly, or else you die. It seems this will be a good way to farm coins.
