Description

New Super Mario Bros. U is the second console installment of the New Super Mario Bros. sub-series, and the first on Wii U. As with all New Super Mario Bros. games, the game is a throwback to the original 2D Mario games, but with new levels and features for a modern experience.

NSMBU allows for a multiplayer experience on the Wii U. Up to four players can join in, with a fifth player using the GamePad to place "Boost Blocks". The game can also be played on the GamePad in single player mode.

In addition to the core campaign, there are also challenge modes. The challenge modes ask players to complete certain challenges. There is also boost rush and coin battle modes.
