The Sequel To The Game I Didn’t Even Know I Wanted

NES Remix 2 is on the way and I have to admit, I’m excited! Growing up, my friends and I would always go on about ideas like this.

Bowser has captured them and taken off to their kingdom. You’re dropped off as your chosen player character on a open map you can wander and search for coins on.
