Mario has to (surprise!) rescue Princess Peach in New Super Mario Bros 2 but for hardcore Mario fans the goal will be to get 1 million coins. For while saving Peach isn't that difficult, making your first million is tricky without some serious platforming skills in the new Coin Rush mode. Our guide will tell you how to get 1 million coins when New Super Mario Bros 2 is released tomorrow.
1. Get the Golden Flower
Coin Rush mode is the new mode designed for speed runners. In this mode you only have one life as you attempt to make it through three randomly selected stages in a bid to collect as many coins as possible.
The Golden Flower is your friend in Coin Rush mode as it helps you rack up a ridiculous high score. So make sure you take good care of it as with this power-up, everything from bricks to enemies turns into gold, meaning you get some serious cash as you head for the flag. We'd advise using it as soon as you start the first level as it will be taken away once you complete it.
You can also grab loads of coins if you replay levels which feature the Golden Flower. You can get a Golden Flower in World 2-1 if you head into the gold pipe after the checkpoint flag. The Golden Flower is in the first Question Mark block.This won't be carried into Coin Rush mode though.
