    Synopsis

    One of the most iconic, popular and beloved video games of all time has made a triumphant return with Super Mario Bros. U. Join cherished characters Mario, Luigi and Toad on an epic adventure through the Mushroom Kingdom as a Mii representation of yourself. Discover new worlds, new power-ups and new ways to play for an experience that stays true to the classic while introducing exciting, innovative features.

    Revisit the Mushroom Kingdom in all its side-scrolling glory in New Super Mario Bros. U. The revolutionary Wii U GamePad controller's capabilities make it possible for multiplayer action to be incorporated into this game in a way that few could have imagined. The brand-new Boost mode allows an extra player to jump into the action for cooperative speed runs, joint efforts to navigate tricky levels and help finding hard-to-reach or hidden items. Instantly receive comments and feedback from friends linked to the Nintendo Network to enhance the excitement of re-experiencing the world of Mario. The Wii U GamePad even allows you to switch seamlessly from playing on the TV to playing on the GamePad so that your thrill doesn't need to be interrupted by someone else's need for the TV. Welcome back to the addicting, bizarre and amazing Super Mario Bros. franchise.

    Product Features

    Dive back into the side-scrolling world of the Mushroom Kingdom with Mario, Luigi, Toad and your very own Mii character to explore new worlds, new power-ups and new ways to play Super Mario Bros.

    Jump into the multiplayer fun with up to five players, as four control the players on screen with Wii Remote controllers and one uses the Wii U GamePad (Controllers and GamePad not included)

    Use the Wii U GamePad to create Boost Blocks that allow players to navigate tricky areas, access hidden areas, uncover hard-to-reach items or distract enemies with the tap of a finger or stylus on the touch screen

    Swoop through levels and cling to walls when Mario transforms into Flying Squirrel Mario, or gently float through the air while hanging onto Tiny Balloon Yoshi

    Perform cooperative speed runs or help others navigate tricky spots with Boost mode that offers new and exciting ways to play multiplayer and the opportunity to navigate levels as a team

    Embark on a quest to save Princess Peach in Story mode

    Work with friends to clear many different courses in the fastest time possible, and watch the scene scroll by faster with the more coins you collect

    Put your skills to the test in the Challenge mode that features a variety of single- and multiplayer challenges, which tie in familiar Super Mario gameplay concepts for a fun, nostalgic and competitive contest

    Seamlessly switch from playing on your TV to playing on the GamePad when the TV becomes unavailable (console and controller not included)

    Network with other Mario players in the Miiverse with comments and accomplishments posted on your screen while you play and leave your own feedback for others to see once they're linked to the Nintendo Network
