New Super Mario Bros U
New Super Mario Bros U is a the upcoming Mario release for the Nintendo Wii U. Though it will be released shortly after Super Mario Bros 2 on the 3DS, it is expected to be a very different game. New Super Mario Bros U will feature a mixture of 2D and 3D graphics and will implement the Wii U Gamepad controller. The game has been confirmed to run at a 720p resolution with a 60 frames per second rate.
I got a chance to play this game at Nintendo’s E3 booth this year and was not disappointed. The gameplay is fun and hectic with friends. There are also a wide array of characters to choose from including Mario, Luigi, Toad, Peach, Bowser, and Miis. There are also some new items including a Tanooki similar item that makes Mario glide like a squirrel.
New Super Mario Bros U Release Date
Right now there is no exact date of release for New Super Mario Bros U. However, it is expected to be a launch release title so it should be available this coming holiday season.
New Super Mario Bros U Multiplayer
Multi-player action in New Super Mario Bros U is similar to that of the Wii’s addition to the series. Players will work together towards completing the level, but will also be fighting for the most points and coins. Players who control a character will use the Wiimote as usual. A new feature to this game is the ability for one player to create and destroy blocks with the tablet controller. These blocks can be used to assist your partners in reaching difficult areas, but can also be use dto impede other players and add a new exciting twist to the gameplay.
