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.
