Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (スーパーマリオランド2 6つの金貨Sūpā Mario Rando Tsū Muttsu no Kinka?) is a platforming video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Game Boy. It was released in Japan on October 21, 1992, in North America on November 2, 1992, and in Europe on January 28, 1993. Like its predecessor, Super Mario Land, Super Mario Land 2 was created by director Hiroji Kiyotake rather than Mario series creator Shigeru Miyamoto.
In Super Mario Land 2, the player assumes the role of the protagonist Mario, whose main objective is reclaim his castle, stolen by the antagonist Wario. However, the magical seal that Wario placed on the castle entrance can only be undone by collecting the six Golden Coins, which are guarded by Wario's henchmen in various locales of the game's setting, Mario Land. Mario's quest thus revolves around retrieving each of the golden coins in order to regain access to his castle and defeat Wario. Super Mario Land 2 is notable for its debut of Wario, who became the protagonist of the spin-off Wario series starting with the game's sequel, Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3.
