"I love Mario games. A big part of the appeal in recent years has been that Nintendo manages to continuously call back to the roots of this endearing franchise, while also adding new and interesting elements. New Super Mario Bros. for the DS brought in the giant mushroom. New Super Mario Bros. Wii added propeller and penguin suits, along with an occasionally-frantic multiplayer mode. New Super Mario Bros. Wii U added innovative gamepad use and even more powers. New Super Mario 3D World for the Wii U takes the best of all of this, adds even more, and wraps it in a wonderfully crafted new package."
