New Super Mario Bros. VR is a Mario 3D sidescroller and the second game for the Nintendo VR, developed by EEA Inc. The game features extreme amounts of virtual reality gameplay, as well as the choice to use the Wii Remote. The game was released in August 2010. At E2-A1, EEA Inc. revealed that this will be the last New Super Mario Bros. game that they work on solo.
New Super Mario Bros. VR has similar gameplay to New Super Mario Bros. Wii, but the controls are way different. With the VR controls, the players move their arms back and forth gently to walk and move them fast to run. quickly raising once arm will allow them to jump or break Blocks. To pick something up, the player raises both arms and to go through doors, the player puts one arm forward and twists. To shoot fireballs or iceballs, one arm is swung forward. Lastly, to spin, both arms swing to one side. There are also other movements such as swinging on vines by swings the body back and forth that are shown throughout the game. The players also must stand to the right when walking and then standing to left to turn around. However, some levels are extremely difficult, so the Wii Remote can also be used.
Like any New Super Mario Bros. game, it is 3D sidescrolling, there is a fortress and castle and every world, Star Coins are collected in threes, and up to four players can play at once. The many difference from it's Wii version, is that Bowser and his son, making the gameplay altered a bit. The controls are the main revolution from New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Some of the new features include a D.I.Y. mode, where the player can make custom levels, much like New Super Mario Bros. D.I.Y. (only the player can't create complete games), an enemy zoo, much like in the enemy museum in the Yoshi's Island games, and a Jukebox, where music is unlocked as it is heard throughout the game.
The Secret Shop, run by the non-playable Blue Toad appears after the player defeats Virtual Peach in World 10 and then discovers the Blue Flagpole, the hidden secret exit in the castle, which also appears after beating it once. This shop then appears in World 1. The things that can be bought in the shop include:

Green Star Coins
Green Star Coins are secret feature to the game and there are three in each level. After the player collects every normal Star Coin in the game, Green Star Coins are spread around every level. They are much hard to find and retrieve than normal Star Coins, but if the player finally collects every last Green Star Coin, the final level of World 10 will be revealed, after bought in the Secret Shop for all the Green Star Coins. It is the hardest level in the game by far, and includes three Star Coins, both gold and green. If the player goes to the extreme, collecting the last six Star Coins, World 11, the final world will be unlocked, which is a world of more difficult levels, where Power Stars are collected. Players that collect all the Power Stars receive: a congratulations letter from Nintendo, a large platinum crown on their file, the true ending, and the Cloud Flower as an item.
All the storyline cutscenes can be viewed in the Options cutscenes section, after they are unlocked throughout the game.
One day, Bowser stumbles upon a strange power he calls Virtual Kidnapping (kidnapping without doing anything), which he uses in his next plan. The same day, Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach are drinking tea, when they discover Bowser has added something to the tea. She floats away and Mario and Luigi go after her. Soon Bowser tries to use it on the Mario Bros., but fails when he and Bowser Jr. get touched by a Virtual Virus, creating Virtual Bowser and Virtual Bowser Jr., who take over Bowser's Castle, kidnap Peach, literally kick Bowser and his son out of the castle, and control all the enemies. Bowser and Jr. soon find the Mario Bros., and the four team up to stop Virtual Bowser.
At the final boss, Virtual Bowser, the four fight him, and finally destroy him. However, a chunk of the Virtual Virus bounces away and infects Princess Peach. Soon after, Virtual Peach is created, but the four manage to defeat her and destroy the virus forever. After the credits, Bowser takes Mario to his secret cannon and blasts him and Luigi out of the castle. But as Bowser laughs at Mario, he falls backwards into a pit and groans as he hits the bottom.
Petey Piranha's Cutscene
After Petey Piranha is unlocked, Mario and Luigi are shown walking along in World 1, when Luigi spots to smell a flower. Just then, Petey Piranha bursts out of the ground, swallowing Luigi whole. Bowser and Bowser Jr. soon approach and order Petey to spit out the frightened plumber. He does so, then patting Luigi on the head (which just pushes him into the ground), and joins forces with the Bros. and Koopas.
Big Bob-omb's Cutscene
After Big Bob-omb is unlocked, Bowser and Bowser Jr. are flying in their Koopa Clown Cars, when they notice Mario and Luigi in the top of a mountain in World 6. Bowser jumps out of the car, but soon after it disappears. Just then, Bowser Jr. sees Big Bob-omb tossing Bob-ombs from inside Bowser's Koopa Clown Car. Mario grabs a Bob-omb, tosses it, and knocks the giant bomb out of the sky. Big Bob-omb apologizes to Bowser and joins their team.
After all the Power Stars are collected, Bowser is seen at the bottom of the pit, trying to climb out. Bowser Jr. tries to pull the king out with a rope, but it breaks. just then, Mario and Luigi fly in on top of a Platinum Star and give Bowser a ride to safety. Soon all six heroes and Princess Peach settle down for tea. However, Bowser ends up swallowing his tea cup. Mario and Peach laugh at this and Bowser roars, indicating that their rivalry isn't over yet.
