New Super Mario Bros. U to have online multiplayer? "Online Interactions Not Rated..."

"Will New Super Mario Bros. U have some form of online multiplayer?

New Super Mario Bros. U will be releasing with the Wii U on November 18th, just over a month away now. Nintendo has not really detailed the Wii U's online features, and hasn't even really confirmed which Wii U launch games will feature any sort of online multiplayer, yet. We do know New Super Mario Bros. U and Nintendo Land, both Wii U launch titles, have Miiverse functionality; but Miiverse details have not been fully discussed by Nintendo either.

At the Wii U Preview on September 13th, Nintendo showed off two new game modes in New Super Mario Bros. U for the first time, those being the Boost Rush Mode and Challenge Mode. So, Nintendo had kept two new modes in New Super Mario Bros. U under wraps until the Wii U event, and nothing was said if either of those modes would have an online multiplayer function.

Why do I think New Super Mario Bros. U might have a form of online multiplayer, outside of just Miiverse communication? Brew yourself some coffee, and let's take a look!", writes CoffeeWithGames. (New Super Mario Bros. U, Wii U)

The obvious one is online co-op.

I would like online co-op which we know it's not but I would still love a level editor which I know we will never get.

It would show how easy it is to make a good level in a 2-D Mario title and I know they don't want that realization coming to light with so many 2-D Mario titles being pumped out.

This "online co-op" technology you're speaking of is untested and too dangerous!

You're playing with fire, Nintendo.

That is probably for Miiverse functions.

That's exactly what it's for. Nintendo already said there would not be on-line co-op. Sad but true. I still can't wait for this game. I play mario single player anyways so it doesn't bother me to much.

Yeah, i didn't even do local co-op for NSMBW. Single player is the only possible way to play Mario games. Galaxy tried co-op, but all you did was collect those candy looking asteroids.

lame, no where near any of my friends to do local co-op :/

Online co-op would be a huge deal. I can see the cruelty now. Big Mario fanatics that will run through the stage like they shouldn't even bother with co-op, if only to show others what they aren't. I personally would love to see someone try to pick me up and throw me off the ledge, this would literally never get tiring. Now all they need is an online co-op for Mario Galaxy 3 and SSB Rumble subspace emissary. What else could you want?

Id like a 4 player PvP mode oldschool with the pow blocks and the blue platforms. Jumping on fools and pow'ing them would be epic fun especially with items like flowers (fireballs), raccoon tails, and stars. Could be really fun although im sure its just the online co-op. Id love mp though.

Oh Yes
How dope would that be?

Icertainly hope it does have online co-op/competitive play. Would boost its value tenfold.

I'll just throw this idea into the mix: it could just be for online leaderboards. Any online game that has online leaderboards has to say that since it is technically an online function. The latest I've played with it was Tokyo Jungle. You actually have to agree to an online terms of service to use the leaderboards.
