New Super Mario Bros. is a 2006 platformer video game made and sold by Nintendo for the Nintendo DS game console. It is the first Mario platform game in 2D on a handheld console since Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins in 1992. It was first sold in stores in North America on May 15, 2006, and was later sold in stores in Japan on May 25, 2006, in Australia on June 8, 2006, and in Europe on June 30, 2006. It is the first game in the New Super Mario Bros. series. A follow-up, New Super Mario Bros. Wii for Nintendo Wii, was released in November and December 2009 and a sequel to this game and follow-up to the Wii version, New Super Mario Bros. 2 was released on the Nintendo 3DS in August 2012.
The game uses many old features from the older Mario games. The countdown game clock is back; if Mario does not reach the castle at the end, he will lose a life. Mario also must jump and catch onto a flagpole at the end of the level and goes into a castle, just like he did in Super Mario Bros. Before and after a level, Mario is on a world map, which was last used in Super Mario World.
