Default NSMB2 save file and coins

Hello all. My fiance' and I both play this game on two separate save files. However, the coins I collect in my own game add to his total (since he played first, and therefore his save file is #1). Is there anyway to have a separate coin count? I didn't find a way to do this in the manual and Googled as well and didn't find an answer. Thanks.

No way to fix. It's just like that.

Just buy the game twice to solve the problem.

I guess that's what Nintendo wants you to do.

Whoa, this is stupid. There should be both a shared count and an individual count.

That's horrible!
That was a disgusting thing for Nintendo to do.

Well if the "prize" for hitting the target coin total is the title screen changing, that's not limited to one save file anyway. It probably makes sense to share the total, that way siblings each playing their own save only have to get half as many coins apiece to hit the target.

That makes even more sense. If there's both, people sharing a cartridge can try to one-up each other's total.

I've got an idea!
Assuming you are playing it in digital form, you could just copy the contents of your SD card to another one. If you are speaking of the physical copy, there's no way I can help.

Though I don't know for sure, I am pretty sure Nintendo prevents you from doing that. But If anybody tries/knows this I'm curious to hear about it.

Actually I think it will work as long as you're playing on the same 3DS you bought it on.
