New Super Mario Bros. 2 star coins walkthrough

New Super Mario Brothers 2 brings back the fun and excitement that the two quirky plumbers have always been known for, and with them comes the cleverness of the varying hidden paths and the many hidden large, golden coins. Like previous games, there are three large coins to find per level that can be rather challenging in trying to track down. For those that want a helping hand in locating each and every last one of the Star Coins, we have started putting together this guide to help, not only where each one is in reference to using the distance meter of each level, but also exactly where each coin is located, and what’s needed to get them.

And for even more Star Coin grabbing goodness, GameXplain has provided a video for each world detailing where each big coin is in each stage.
