|New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe Review|
The definitive edition of New Super Mario Bros U. Basically a port of the Wii U game with the quality of life changes, new characters and includes New Super Luigi U expansion.
A sincere review for New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe:
Here is the list of changes I've noticed:
1. Now play as Luigi, Toad, Mario, Toadette and Nabbit in single player in both Mario Bros U and Luigi U. In original, only can play Mario in Mario Bros U, and Luigi & Nabbit in Luigi U Cannot select a multiple of the same characters when playing multiplayer
2. New characters: Nabbit* and Toadette. Both as basically OP (Over Powered) characters like Funky Kong in Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze for Nintendo Switch Both are resistant to ice and swim faster Able to stop on a dime after running
Gain an additional 100 seconds on the timer
Toadette and Nabbit are labelled as easy and very easy respectively
-No longer exclusive character to New Super Luigi U. Can be played in the core game
-Can now carry objects
-Immune to all attacks from enemies
Still knockback though. Exceptions to immunity: lava, poison, pits, spikes and if you run out of time
-If you collect power-ups it converts to 1up at the end of the level
-Able to get Super Crown* Power up and turn into Peachette
*Toadette is the only character who can get this power up
-Peachette abilities: similar to flying squirrel power up. Float/glide, and double jump, but cannot attach to walls
-Resistant to ice, increase swim speed
-All 1up mushrooms show up as 3-up moons instead
No longer tethered to Wii U console. Able to take this game anywhere assuming you there's battery on the Switch
4. Hint button on the menu screen
No need to go back to the home screen
5. HD rumble.
Rumble is very prevalent in the game from shooting fireballs to going up/down a warp pipe
6. Challenges return.
No boost mode due to no duel screen
7. Spin jump.
Now auto spins when pressing the jump button twice instead of having its own dedicated button or shake control.
8. HUD/menu screen.
Cleaner and easier on eyes
9. Higher resolution
Native 1080 (TV) 720p (handheld/tabletop) vs Dynamic 1080p (TV), 720 (Wii U game pad)
10 (?). Misc:
No miiverse support seeing the service is no longer active (also for Wii U)
No new levels which is also disappointing
Basically the same game you played on the Wii U but with more options.
Note that this game is a full priced $60 game at launch. New Super Mario Bros. U + New Super Luigi U Bundle for Wii U is part of the Nintendo Selects line for $30 if you're able to find it.
Portability is a huge factor, easier access means more play time, especially if you share the TV with friends/family/housemates
Personally, don't like the double tap to spin jump. Feels more in control if I had a dedicated button like the original
If you don't own a Wii U or never played this game before, it's one of the best 2D Mario games out there. If you did play it before, not a lot has changed especially if you're good at platformers as there's no additional levels to play through, just a few additional characters to make the game more accessible to newcomers.
Don’t be fooled to think you’re getting a brand new game with new content if you played this game on the wiiu you aren’t missing much.
Few changes and couple new characters are really all you’re getting.
With that said the game is fun but it’s not a new game.
New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe has sweet playability
My 11-year-old and I love this game. He plays on his own and at times we play together. The glitch in the game, however, is that when 1 player dies, the game screen literally pauses when the other player is in the middle of playing. This is an issue when you are trying to not die from jumping over something. We still love it though!
We bought the switch in anticipation of those games release. Love that 4 players can play. The game works well and no complaints. We have a wireless controller which is easier for my giant hands than the stock ones. Hoping that Mario maker is released so I can build fun levels that challenge my family.
Loving the addition of the baby yoshi's. My daughter just can't put it down. Great family game!
As a kid, I played Mario 3 and remembered thinking how far they'd come since the original! This is a throwback to the simple times of 2D -- and it does it right. Stunning graphics and smooth gameplay. Some levels are actually hard enough that I have to die a few times -- that never happens anymore! Playing with a partner brings joy and anger too! They help you cross a platform, only to knock you off the next! Love and hate!
Context: I bought a Switch for my daughter for Christmas because some of my favourite memories as a child are playing games with my parents and siblings.
Summary: This game is so much fun. Equal parts 'Frustrating', 'Skill', and 'Patience'. I can't recommend this game enough for old-timer SNES players (I am 33 haha), or anyone looking to have a fun time in the world of Mario. At 33 years old, this game is just as fun as the original I played when I was 6 years old. There are few games, systems, or entertainment devices that transcend age and time. These games are one of them. I highly recommend.
There's been some hate toward this release given that it doesn't really bring anything new to the table, but personally, I don't mind because I loved this game on the Wii-U and it's been a long time since I played it. Going back through the whole game again didn't feel like repetition at all. Also, having it on the Switch just made it all the more enjoyable due to its mobility.
this is the best game by far. reminds me of the original Nintendo game. we have fun playing together (teaches our son to play in a group and see others while playing). have been playing it with my 9-year-old since the day we got it (4 days ago). our son also gets excited playing and keeps saying how much he is enjoying the game.
excellent bonding time.
(we have Mario kart - our 4-year-old loves it.
Mario odyssey - nice but a shame that when playing it as 2 players one is Mario the other person is the hat, not so much fun.
tennis - not as much fun, and doesn't seem so good with the tennis rackets.)
The whole family loves to play this game. It’s super annoying when your 8-year old knocks you off a cliff or into lava, but we have a good time playing as a family. This game will teach you patience when you play with children. The power-ups are mostly like the old Wii version, but with a few new twists. We like it. Warning! Some levels are impossible to beat with toddlers in tow.
I never placed this on Wii U so it is all new to me. It’s a great throwback to super Mario brothers 3. Graphics are better and the story is as you’d expect. It is a great deal of fun and you can play it with your kids. So for me, it is well worth the money. If you owned the old version on the Wii U there are several new things and upgrades but I don’t know if I’d spend another $60 for them.
This game is awesome reminds me of the ones I played as a kid 30 years ago.
This is a really fun game but I can only play it for about a half hour before I'm screaming and throwing the remote. My boyfriend never played Mario (I know) and introduced himself by starting out with this game and shortly after I could hear him screaming in frustration from across the house. Some people just are not meant to play Mario.
This game is lots of fun if you’re into Super Mario Bros but want a nice visual enhancement. If you’re like me and never owned a Wii U as this was originally on the Wii U then definitely pick this up. You can do co-op with friends and family if you have extra joycons as there are multiple characters to choose from including Luigi, Nabbit, And Toadette. It also includes the other version of the game New Super Luigi U. Definitely worth a buy if you’re into this style of 2D game and haven’t played before!
WII vs. Switch New Super Mario Bros. U DeluxeI love this game. It’s fun, played it for the Wii U and now Switch. It’s not a life changer, but great classic MARIO gameplay.
Platform: Nintendo SwitchEdition: StandardVerified Purchase
I love Super Mario Games in general but this one is pretty fun. I like that you can choose the difficulty and on the easier setting if you get stuck on a level you can choose for Luigi to pass it for you. I am by no means a professional gamer but I bought a switch just so I could play Mario games and this is y far my favorite. Very similar to Classic Mario with an update.
Even though this title was previously available on the Wii U the graphics are gorgeous on the switch. I have used my switch mostly in the dock mode but found myself taking it off the dock and playing on the go. I appreciate the different difficulty levels as I am not a hardcore gamer but still enjoy playing. Definitely worth the coins!
I would first off like to start by saying that I never played the Wii U versions of these games so this is the first time I ever played these Mario games and I am so happy I got this. First off it's a single game yet it's two games combined into one. If you love The 2D side-scrolling Mario games and you loved Mario World and Mario 3 this is exactly what that feels like. It feels like they took Mario Brothers 3 and Mario World and mash them up together to create this game and I absolutely love it! This is an extremely solid Mario game and Luigi game it's very fun and it stays very true to the original Nintendo Mario 3 game and the Super Nintendo Mario World game when Yoshi first made his appearance in the Mario World games. I will make this simple, this game is just absolutely fun, it's fun to play, nice to look at, and best of all gives you so much content I'm talking about a lot of levels here. If you like Mario games then don't even think twice about getting this and just get it. I definitely don't regret getting it.
New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe on Switch better than WiiNintendo struck gold making the switch portable and a home console. I will not elaborate on the differences between the Wii U version and the Switch version as I do not own the Wii U.
The down and dirty about this game. I purchased the original NES back in the day, and Nintendo mastered the horse manure rage quitting the game during my youth to justify the costs of the limitation of 8-bit games. Games like Battletoads and Ninja Gaiden were the authors to rage quitting. Nintendo fixed the frustration of games by adding two new characters; toadette and nabbit. When your skill gets better, you can select the other characters, that were standard with the Wii U edition of this game.
