Official details about the new WiiU Mario platform game, along with it’s first full trailer and a host of beautiful images were revealed during Nintendo’s E3 press conference this morning/evening. We have all the details here…

New Super Mario Bros. U is a new, side-scrolling adventure featuring Mario, Luigi, Toad … and your Mii character. Now’s your chance to step inside the Mushroom Kingdom and explore new worlds, new power-ups and new ways to play.


• 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

• The Wii U GamePad controller offers a new way to play multiplayer in this
game. An extra player can jump into the action using the new Boost mode,
creating platforms out of thin air to help others navigate tricky stages or
access hidden or hard-to-reach items.

• Boost mode also makes cooperative speed runs possible for the first time.
Use the GamePad to interact with and manipulate enemies and objects in
real time, allowing for new ways to find the fastest routes through each level.

• Play on the big screen or the small screen. Switch game play from the TV to
the GamePad at any time to continue playing even when others are using
the TV.

• Experience Mario together like never before with Miiverse. See other
players’ comments and accomplishments while you play and leave your own
feedback for others to see when connected to the Nintendo Network.
