New Super Mario Bros. U is the fourth installment in the New Super Mario Bros. series. It was released on November 18, 2012 (the Wii U's launch). This game can have five players, four on Wii Remotes and one on the Wii U GamePad. It is a sequel to the 2009 Wii game New Super Mario Bros. Wii and a follow-up to the Nintendo 3DS game New Super Mario Bros. 2 (which was also released in 2012 and is a follow-up to the 2009 game). An expansion pack, titled New Super Luigi U was also released for the Wii U in June 2013. A port remake for the Nintendo Switch, titled New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe was released in January 2019.

Gameplay

The gameplay is similar to that of New Super Mario Bros. Wii, with additions like the Super Acorn, which transforms the player into his Flying Squirrel form, and the choice to play as a Mii. Like New Super Mario Bros. Wii, players have the option to play as either Mario, Luigi, Yellow Toad, or Blue Toad. Yoshi is back in the game and can be mounted. Baby Yoshis also appear in this game with several different powers. In Challenge mode, there 5 different challenges: Time Attack, Coin Collection, 1-Up Rally, Special, and Boost Mode.

Trivia

  • This is, so far, the only Mario 2D platformer game that doesn't include or involve Bowser's Castle.
  • This is the only game in the New Super Mario Bros. series to be a launch title.
  • If the Miis are selected as P1, they will be colored like Mario. If P2, they will be colored like Luigi. If P3, they will have yellow shirts and purple overalls, similar to Wario. If P4, they wear blue shirts and dark blue overalls, similar to Luigi's light blue alternate costume from the Super Smash Bros. series.
  • When the player grabs a Baby Yoshi, an additional choir is added to the music, which is the voice of the Baby Yoshi itself.
  • New Super Mario Bros. U is the first New Super Mario Bros. game where playable characters start far from Princess Peach's Castle. It is also the first 2D Mario game where the players get to see the interior of Peach's Castle, not counting going inside to see videos in New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
  • If one counts Secret Island and the Coin CoursesNew Super Mario Bros. U has the most areas/worlds in the New Super Mario Bros. series, at eleven worlds, and the most courses, at ninety-four courses.
  • Sometimes, on the title screen, Luigi almost trips over instead of jumping and ground-pounding the ground.
  • This game also brought New Super Luigi U as a side game.
