    How many hours of gameplay is average in SMB2? Just curious, because several friends who’ve played it already finished it in 4-5 days. How much replay incentive?

      Hey Cherie, this is Athibz from the Virtual Boyz. If you play through game without attempting to collect all the star coins then yes depending on play sessions one could beat the game in a few short days. With that said if you collect all the star coins, and unlock the secret worlds and coin rush mode there is plenty to keep the player coming back for more.

      If your competitive then you’ll love the collect 1 million coins incentive the game offers. It makes for a fun race to 1 million with friends. I hope that best answers your questions.
