New Ways to Play and Share Your Mario Fun

New Super Mario Bros. U is a new, side-scrolling adventure featuring Mario, Luigi, Toad ... and your Mii character. Now's your chance to step inside the Mushroom Kingdom and explore new worlds, new power-ups and new ways to play. Up to five players* can jump into the fun, with up to four people using Wii Remote controllers and one on the Wii U GamePad. The experience is different, depending on which controller is used.

Key Game Features

  • The Wii U GamePad controller offers a new way to experience multiplayer Mario fun. Create Boost Blocks out of thin air to help players navigate tricky stages or access hidden or hard-to-reach items, and distract onscreen enemies, all with the tap of their finger or stylus.
  • Swoop through levels and cling to walls when Mario transforms into Flying Squirrel Mario, or gently float through the air while hanging onto Balloon Baby Yoshi.
  • In addition to the main Story Mode, in which players must rescue Princess Peach, New Super Mario Bros. U features more exciting game modes, including:
    • Boost Rush - Using Boost Mode, two to five players work together to clear many different courses in the fastest time possible. The scene auto scrolls, forcing you to move ahead through the course. As you collect more coins, the scene scrolls faster. Once you've completed your run, you can watch a replay of other players' Boost Rush to help strategize for your next attempt.
    • Challenge Mode - Numerous single-player and multiplayer challenges incorporate a series of familiar Super Mario gameplay concepts in a fun, competitive way. These challenges offer high replay value as players try to achieve the best score and unlock new challenges. Boost Mode Challenges help players practice the teamwork necessary for effective Boost Mode gameplay. After finishing, players can watch a replay of their Challenge to strategize for next time.
  • Boost Mode also makes cooperative speed runs possible for the first time. Use the GamePad to interact with and manipulate enemies and objects in real time, and discover new ways to find the fastest route through each stage.
  • Play on the big screen or the small screen. Switch single-player gameplay from the TV to the GamePad at any time to continue playing even when others are using the TV.
  • Families and friends can experience Mario together like never before with Miiverse. See other players' comments and accomplishments while you play, and leave your own feedback for others to see when connected to the Nintendo Network (broadband Internet access required).

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like Christmas back in 1991 November 26, 2012
By B. Batt
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
During Christmas Eve back in 1991, I stayed the night over at my best friend's house in anticipation of playing his Super Nintendo. We both woke up at about 2 in the morning & found it laying helplessly under the tree. Like most kids, we took off just a corner of the wrapping paper to confirm our suspicions and then waited for his mom to wake up. I'll never forget that Christmas Day as it was the first time I had played Super Mario World. Flash forward 20+ years and we now have New Super Mario Bros for Wii U. It's the first game that has made me feel like it was Christmas every time that I play it. I've played every Halo game...every PS3 blockbuster...every definitive Wii title and there's nothing that compares to the fun and excitement that New Super Marios Bros for Wii U brings me. In fact, I brought the Wii U home for Thanksgiving this year and every person that played it (whether a 30 year old adult or a 7 year old little girl) had a smile from ear to ear. This game is not only for classic Mario lovers, but for a whole new generation of would-be plumbers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game January 10, 2013
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
My husband has not put the game down since I bought it for him at Christmas. He has said that it is a bit harder than he expected, and with the number of obscenities that he has screamed at the TV, I think he is probably right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ah the Memories, Such an Amazing Game December 5, 2012
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
New Super Mario Bros U makes the Wii U worth the buy alone. I think it's a fun, amazing game that anyone any age can appreciate.

The game I played most when I was a kid was Super Mario 3 for the Nintendo. This game more than lives up to the name. It seems like it takes all the best things from every single Mario game and combines them into a masterpiece. Countless times you will find yourself smiling remembering something from your past. Finding secret areas, using all the power-ups, fighting stuff on the map, dungeons, and bosses are just so much fun. Time comes into play as well, it makes you try to move fast and explore, all while trying to beat the clock. There are tons of hidden areas and each level has 3 star coins. The Miiverse plays a role here too where you can leave comments on levels to help each other out or just say that you are happy you beat the level. For single player the Wii U tablet remote doesn't serve as a real purpose other than mirroring the screen, if you want you can play solely on that and let someone else use the TV.

The multiplayer is crazy and exciting. Some people would complain about other players on the screen because they run into you and mess you up but I find it to be more fun. You have to not only watch yourself but watch your teammates and work with them to get past obstacles. It's worth noting that you need a Wii remote for each character playing. For instance 1 Wii remote + 1 Wii tablet = only 1 person on screen while the tablet player has a different function. For 2 player you need 2 Wii remotes. This game can be played by 5 people, 4 players on the screen using Wii remotes and 1 person using the Wii tablet. My friend and I have never had a dull moment and have had to stop for a minute because we were laughing so hard.

4.0 out of 5 stars Super Mario indeed!!!!! June 14, 2013
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I love playing super Mario with my husband and nephew. It is soo challenging and at the same time so much fun. It is my favorite past time on weekends. But dont buy for kids less than 8 years of age, this one will surely frustrate them. Also, 2 or more players is much more fun than the single one.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I remember when I learned that New Super Mario Bros. 2 was coming to the 3DS. I also remember when I learned that New Super Mario Bros. U (abbreviated to NSMBU) was coming to Wii U about two seconds after I learned about New Super Mario Bros. 2. It kind of struck me as odd that Nintendo was releasing two New Super Mario Bros. games within three months of each other. Nonetheless, NSMBU may be the best game in the series. But, does it live up to the "New" name, or is it more of the same?

*STORY*
If you guessed that the main story for this game is that Bowser runs off with Peach while Mario and co. pursue him, then you're partially correct. Instead of taking the Princess to his castle, Bowser decides to ambush Peach's castle and hold her hostage there. Using a giant mechanical claw, he takes care of Mario, Luigi, and the two generic Toads by throwing them far away. This is all relayed through a rather comical opening sequence, where Bowser scoots the Princess out of harm's way before dealing harshly with the others. While this is a fresh twist on the usual kidnapping story, it still uses the same underlying plot: the Princess is kidnapped, and she must be saved.

*GAMEPLAY*
The gameplay here is, unsurprisingly, very similar to that of this game's predecessors. The gameplay still consists of Mario running through various levels to collect three star coins and ultimately reach the flagpole at the end. However, the new Flying Squirrel power-up brings an interesting new mechanic to the game. The Flying Squirrel allows you to glide across large chasms and pits that you can't simply jump across. You can also catch a slight upward draft with the flying squirrel suit, bringing some verticality to the game.
