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.
With Mario nowhere to be found, it's up to Luigi to save the day in a brand-new adventure that takes place in the world of New Super Mario Bros. U. Experience new gameplay challenges as you guide Luigi, complete with his high jump and unique slide, through all-new courses. Enjoy high replayability and satisfaction from mastering each course, and then share your triumphs via the Miiverse feature. Up to five players* can jump into the fun, with Nabbit taking the place of Mario as a playable character. Help Luigi finally prove he has what it takes!
