New Super Mario Bros. 2 players collected more than 10 billion coins within its first 10 days of Japanese release, according to Nintendo.

Gathering coins is one of the main objectives in New Super Mario Bros. 2. It offers a total of one million coins to collect; as of August 7th, 242 players had reached that milestone and racked up a total of 242 million coins. Still, that's only 2.3 percent of the global total, which, at the latest count, was 10,537,297,374 coins. Nintendo tracks players' coin counts through the 3DS's SpotPass feature, so that number doesn't include any players who have disabled it.

Although New Super Mario Bros. 2 is currently available only in Japan, where it came out on July 28th, Nintendo referred to the total as "global." That implies the company is counting anybody playing the game worldwide, including reviewers in the West with pre-release copies.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 is due out exclusively for 3DS in Europe on August 17th; in Australia on August 18th; and in North America on August 19th.
