Mario DS to hit stores on May 25
The famous plumber from Italy along with his brother are all set to leap into DS with New Super Mario bros. Nintendo has finally settled with May 25 as the official release date with a retail price of 4,800 Yen ($ 38). The May 25 is perfect as the Nintendo DS Lite will go on sale in the US by that time. The game has an interesting two player mode in which you will pit Mario against Luigi in a race to collect the most coins and you can attack the other brother to make him drop all the coins so you can collect them. So much for sibling rivalry there are new power ups, enemies, puzzles etc. However the story is still the same as Bowser still Peach once again from Mushroom castle.
