Nintendo gave a first look at New Super Mario Bros. U at their E3 media briefing this morning, introducing a Flying Squirrel Mario suit and the game’s Boost Mode, where a fifth player can jump into the game and use the Wii U GamePad to create blocks to assist the other four players along the way. Watch it below:



Nintendo say that you can also use the Wii U GamePad to interact with enemies and other objects, and use this to help players perform cooperative speedruns through the game.

    I kind of like the fact the game has taken some of Super Mario World’s aesthetics, how NSMBW took on a similar look to Super Mario Bros. 3 >w<;; Although I do prefer SMB3's stylings a little more, I do always enjoy how airy and open SMW's look is. Also I adore what they are doing with the backgrounds in this game owo;

  • Knuckles!

  • AnimusVox

    Does the ‘U’ stand for anything in the game’s title?

    • boundries_san

      Well……. I believe so.

      See 3ds under all nintendo games?

      • AnimusVox

        Actually, not all Nintendo games have 3DS under in titles, if that’s what you mean.
        And besides why not put ‘Wii U’ rather than just ‘U’?

        • My guess is that New Super Mario Bros. Wii is already used up and they don’t want to use “Wii” again.

        • boundries_san

          Well…… Star Fox 3D? Super Mario 3D Land?

          It is not something  to be suprised here lol. Considering Nintendo has follow this method on giving title long time ago.

          • AnimusVox

             He said ‘3DS’ not ‘3D’

          • boundries_san

            Uuups sorry, what i meant is 3D.T_T

            Man i am really error at the moment,T_T

  • Göran Isacson

    OH GOD what are you doing to those baby Yoshis Mario? That can’t be legal or healthy for them, blowing them up like balloons.

    Also boo still no Peach or any character BESIDES Toads. I don’t even care if the other characters don’t play differently, I WANT VARIETY. Nintendo has awesome characters, these anonymous toads are NOT awesome.

  • Looks nice :)

  • CirnoLakes

    I feel very teased.

  • boundries_san

  • Is it just local co op or can you play online?

  • Now Mario can join the Squirrley Scouts!
