New Super Mario Bros. U (Wii U) Review | SuperPhillip Central

SuperPhillip Central says, "Do you remember a time when there was a decade stretch where there wasn't a new 2D Mario platformer to be found? This reviewer does. Now they seem to be coming out of the woodwork. Well, actually that isn't that fair to say. Since New Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo DS, there comes only one new 2D Mario platformer for every Nintendo system. Speaking of which, the New Super Mario Bros. series might come off as one that doesn't try hard enough to push the platforming genre forward. Some might even say that Nintendo has rested on its laurels.

With a new home console and a new Mario game to go along with it, something that hasn't happened since the Nintendo 64 in 1996, Wii U owners have a mighty helping of new 2D Mario to enjoy in the form of New Super Mario Bros. U. Does the Wii U GamePad and added features offer a valid reason for Nintendo to still be putting "New' in front of "Super Mario Bros."?" (New Super Mario Bros. U, Wii U) 9.0/10
