Recently, I told you that over 36 billion coins were collected worldwide. But now, I was told that coins kept on coming, and now we have over half a hundred billion coins! Since last time, we have collected an increase of 14 billion coins. New Super Mario Bros. 2 players keep playing the game to up the worldwide coin count.
Oh, how you wish the money were real and then you could literally buy every video game in existence, even Wii U and its Mario games, such as New Super Mario Bros. U, the rumored 3D Mario game, or even those Mario game mock-ups, like Paper Mario U and Yoshi’s Island U. But sadly, we can’t. However, keep playing New Super Mario Bros. 2 and keep collecting those coins. We’re already past at an astounding 50 billion coins, which could mean that literally almost every player who has New Super Mario Bros. 2, has collected the needed one million coin mark. Now who wants to see ten hundred thousand quintillion coins? As we keep collecting coins and making the count rise, we will let you know over time!
