It just occurred to me, why is it called New Super Mario Bros 2?

    At the time of its release it is technically the 3rd game in the series making it #3. Is the DS or Wii game non canon or something or did Nintendo miscount and/or memory relapse.

    England I guess
    Because it's the second handheld New Mario game I'm guessing

    New Super Mario Bros. 2
    is a sequel to
    New Super Mario Bros.

    New Super Mario Bros. Wii
    isn't a part of the DS series count because the "Wii" in the title makes it a different series I guess.

    Same with
    New Super Mario Bros. U
