Product Details:

All new ways to Play and share your Mario Fun! New Super Mario Bros. & 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.

The Mario Brothers are making their premiere on the latest console, the Nintendo Wii U, in New Super Mario Bros. U. As the first Super Mario game on the Wii U, longtime fans of the series are sure to be in for a treat when they experience the brand new Boost Mode. Using the Wii U GamePad, one player can help or hinder everyone else in the game. Whether you're bricking up a chasm or blocking off the only exit, Boost Mode is an all new way to control the action.

Tired of playing as Mario, Luigi and Toad? Of course you aren't. But to add a little variety, you'll have the ability to import and use your Mii for certain game modes, truly making you a part of the adventure.

This time around, instead of fighting your way out of the Mushroom Kingdom toward Bowser's palace, you'll have to work your way back to the Mushroom Kingdom from a distant and mysterious land.

Discover brand new power-ups and abilities, including the Flying Squirrel Suit, the power to run straight up walls, and various Baby Yoshi powers.

Pre-order your copy now so you can play it on launch day, once you've picked up your brand new Wii U, of course. Be sure to wear your best pair of overalls and grow your finest mustache to pick up your copy of New Super Mario Bros. U.

The New Super Mario Bros. U release date is Sunday, November 18.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mario is back again This game is good. Some Mario games are alright and some are really good. This will take sometime to get use to the game but as of right now it is good. Mario games are a big gaming franchise. They have been making games for years. They keep going. They are making a huge impact on the gaming world in a good way. Check it out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but there are better Wii U games out there New Super Mario Bros. U isn't a bad game. It's a good platformer, and is a good match for someone who needs a Wii U game, and isn't too picky about what they play. However, I don't believe it's necessarily a top-notch offer, either. The gameplay is mildly entertaining, with not much new being introduced. It's very similar, in my opinion, to previous New Super Mario Bros. titles. In fact, I believe it's this similarity that keeps it from standing out. If the game was the first 2D Mario platformer in a while, or if it had some brand new, fun feature, it would be much more enjoyable. But, sadly, it only really manages to join the ranks of other New Super Mario Bros. games, as a decent, but not exceptional, product. Sure, the graphics are good, but graphics can only do so much, especially for a game that looks virtually the same in art style to its predecessors. Though the time I spent playing New Super Mario Bros. U wasn't painstaking or boring, it wasn't very exciting or breathtaking either. I would certainly recommend this game to those who love platformers/Super Mario Bros., or for those looking for a Wii U title to occupy their time. Otherwise, there are better options out there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Mario Game! This game has been overlooked in way because it was the fourth game in the series, and New Super Mario Bros.2 for 3DS felt trashy. However, this one was way better than New Super Mario Bros. 2. The story starts off with Bowser kicking the Mario team out of Peach's castle and holding her hostage inside, something new to the series. Then Mario, Luigi, and the yellow and blue Toad set off to rescue her. But in the end it really doesn't feel like you're going through Peach's castle.The gameplay was great, and the level designs were done well. It didn't feel dry like New Super Mario Bros. 2, and the levels seemed like there was time and effort put into them, rather than rushed and slapped together. There were some new elements put into this game like the new acorn power up, and baby yoshis that had really cool characteristics that would help you. Seeing Mario in a bright, colorful, HD world was really a sight! The music was not original though and was taken from other Mario games, but there were some cool things added into the music like baby yoshis singing along. The game is a great multiplayer game, perfect for casual and hardcore gamers. It is up to a five player game, where one of the players uses the gamepad to set temporary ledges to help the other players out. This game also features off tv play which allows someone to play from just the gamepad itself.The game can be challenging at times, and overall the difficulty level is slightly difficult. It truly is a great game, but feels a little too similar to other games in the New Super Mario Bros. series, so it would have been nice if Nintendo made some daring changes to it. A cool thing Nintendo added to the game though was neat mini games. These mini games are cleverly done. There is also a thing called 'Boost Rush Mode" that features a unique way to play some Mario levels. If you like a good Mario game, this is a game for you. This game will provide you with hours of gameplay and an enjoyable experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING! This game met and even exceeded my expectations. I received this with my Wii U, and have not stopped playing it since. Everything is great about this game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems similar with a bit of freshness... New Super Mario Bros. U is a solid title for the Wii U. In my opinion, it's not really a system-seller though. The reason being is that there's not too much innovation from New Super Mario Bros. Wii. The gameplay mechanics feel the same and the only innovations include new forms of Yoshis and new items. To me, it felt as though I was playing New Super Mario Bros. U in HD. That leads to my second point about this game, the HD graphics. It's very nice to finally see Mario in HD. Although it is a 2D side-scroller, when you play this game on an HDTV it really just pops. Very nice touch and very beautiful. Other than, that it feels like any other Mario. In my opinion, it is too easy for my taste. But, I guess it makes it easy for most kids to pick up and play. Another point, I have to make is the multiplayer. Once you get 4 players running around the maps, it becomes total madness (In a good way). The Boost Mode is what levels the amount of multiplayer madness and the level of challenge it creates. Anyway, New Super Mario Bros. U is a solid game for the Wii U. Although, it does feel very similar to past games as there is not too much innovation here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best of the "New" series Being a "New" Mario game, I kept my expectations to a minimum. However, the game surpassed them. The "New" games have always been solid, but NSMBU adds little touches that put it above the others. I love the detail in the backgrounds, the progression of Peach's Castle turning into Bowser's castle and the sprawling map: featuring many branching paths/secret exits that are seriously secret. It's too bad the OST features just a couple memorable tracks and the graphical style of the New series is getting quite stale, or else the game could've joined the ranks of SMB3 and SMW.
