Conglaturations for reading this
Earlier this week there was a great deal of chortling at a minor grammatical error in New Super Mario Bros. 2, with the initial Coin Rush notification being the offending screen; many of us actually missed it in our eagerness to play the mode itself.

Another thing worth considering is that this version of Pokemon Snap has a VC-exclusive feature!
