Like it's predecessor, Super Mario Bros. Experience 2 will have the health meter, the Fuse-Ups, and the detailed 3D look of the terrain and backgrounds (which was from Donkey Kong Country Returns). However, unlike SMBE 1 and other Super Mario Bros. games, the cutscenes will be 3D instead of 2D. SMBE 2 will, in short, have all the gameplay features that SMBE 1 had with some small tweaks and new additions.
Another new addition is the Dark Walls. They cause no harm to Mario if he touches them, but they can be destroyed upon contact with a poison ball from Poison Mario.

Power-ups can once again be fused at the orange Fuse House in World 1. They can also fuse if two power-ups touch each other in a level. Some Power-Ups require Fuse Mushrooms or Fuse Stars in order to be made. It is worth noting that some of the power-ups from the list above can be made via fusing as well.
