New Super Mario
Bros. Game for the
Nintendo DS lets you play an updated version of the classic
Super Mario Bros. world, with all-new moves taken from other
hit Mario games. When Mario and Princess Peach are taking a
walk, a bolt of lightning hits Mushroom Castle. Mario goes
off to investigate, but when he returns Bowser has kidnapped
Peach! He'll track down Bowser on the classic, original
Super Mario Bros. map with all the moves he's picked up in
the other games. Throw turtle shells, butt-stomp to crack
open floors -- you can even use the tanooki suit from Super
Mario Bros. 3. Use the DS dual screen to see where you are
on a map & play fun minigames.
This games makes a great addition to Mario Kart DS.
