New Super Mario bros U thread. Oct. 22nd, 2012 @ 04:34 PM Reply

Yes, another one, but it looks more promising than the Wii and 3DS versions.

I read a few articles clearly making links between this games and Super Mario World, as opposed to any other Mario game. Just like Mario 3D Land borrowed heavily from Mario 3, this game wants to give life to Mario's 4th main game.

Baby Yoshi's return, as little fat blobs of cute that you can hold to use their powers, a distinct mountain background that looks very much like the ones in World,and a large continuous world map, like Mario World.

Other cool features include boost rush mode, where the screen auto-scrolls making the levels harder based on how many coins you collect, a challenge mode (get 10 1-ups in a minute, don't touch the ground, etc...), and a Gamepad player who can place platforms by touching on the screen (5 players at a time).

TL;DR, Mario HD, up to 5 players, Mario World inspired, first Mario game to launch with a system since the N64. And since Rayman Legends is delayed, this is the best looking platformer at launch.

I was lucky enough to test-play it recently; Nintendo didn't show up at Gamescom so I thought I'd never touch the Wii U before launch:
It's basically New Super Mario Bros Wii with new things thrown in but that doesn't diminish the fun if you have a few people to play it with. The person with the tablet controller was able to create platforms that disappear after you step on them or after some seconds but other than that we found no other tablet functions in the time we had.

I read somewhere that successfully placing platforms (as in someone uses them) will fill up a meter, and a full meter lets you give a one time insta-kill, very effective on Thwomps.

Just babies, they can't eat anything I think.

One other thing I forgot to mention is that the formula is shaken up a bit. Instead of Bowser taking Peach away to his castle, he actually throws the players miles away, and the final Castle might actually be Peach's. I'm glad they decided to change the story a bit, especially for an awesome final boss battle.

Sadly, only Green ones are ridable. All the other Yoshi's stay babies that you carry.

Some of them can, which is why I asked

This actually sounds pretty cool. They just get tossed away after each castle, or what?

This game is getting favourable reviews, saying it is the best out the four "New" series of Mario games. The single world map, bay Yoshi's, and an awesome challenge mode look really good, and much more worth the title of "New".

Too bad there is almost no new music.

Sigh...

I am not surprised. I am more hyped for this game than any of the previous titles in the new series.

Also why is the music a problem? I think the music is rather relaxing even if most of it is recycled once again.

I'm just a big fan of videogeam music. I was hoping for a new OST, but a few new tracks will do.

I'll probably pick this up eventually. I still need to play New Super Mario Bros. 2, though.

I can never find enough people to play meaningful four player co-op, though. :(

2 players are ideal. 2 players plus someone on the Gamepad is even better.

It is crazy playing it with 4 players though. If you haven't had a chance to play it that way you should. Everyone starts to become their own worst enemies playing.

The game is quite fun. The Gamepad to add platforms works well, and my friends and I enjoyed screwing each other over. i am already done world 1 though, pretty fast. Fortunately challenge mode should keep me busy.

Great game, better than the New Super Mario bros 2, for sure.

One of the things that I learned from New Super Mario Bros. Wii is that the 4-player co-op is fun until you get to the later levels and then it quickly becomes, "everyone get in a bubble while I clear this really hard part".

Nintendo just announced New Super Luigi U in honour of the year of Luigi.

The game will be 80 levels (AS MANY AS THE ON DISC GAME) of paid DLC.

When Nintendo said they want to take DLC seriously, they really meant it.

I am definitely getting it too. Luigi is awesome and deserves to be #1 :)

Really though I am hoping this isn't a single player only DLC I hope the local multiplayer aspect of the game is playable in the DLC mode.

They actually purposefully removed the "Bros" from the title to make sure people know it is single player only. An analysis video pointed out that the stages looked like they were designed to be more difficult, and had less space for multiple players.

I love Luigi. He is more interesting than Mario, and this looks like a really promising DLC.

If that is the case that would be a little disappointing. I love playing these games with friends. Oh well still plan to buy it though.

Jumped at the chance to play this on my friends new Wii U. It was amazing and it was great seeing Mario in true HD. They finally added enough new stuff in this one to make it feel fresh and all of the baby Yoshi abilities are useful.

New Super Luigi U trailer.

The downloadable game will sell for 20$ downloadable, or 30$ in box as a standalone disc.

It will be much harder, level timers all start at 100 seconds, and Nabbit is playable character who is invincible to attacks, but can not sue powerups.
