Watch GameInformer's Exclusive Trailer For Mario U's Boost Rush Mode

When New Super Mario Bros. U launches alongside the Wii U in November, platforming fans will be able to try out a unique new challenge. Boost Rush mode rewards players for collecting coins, but the level auto-scrolls faster as your pockets get fatter.

Well, Mario is always Mario I guess. Even if the formula is the same from 20 years (with some news) it is always fun to play! This is one of the WiiU games that intrigue me more! The fact that it is in HD is a great addiction!

It is nice to see that the light of positive speak has shined upon you. The Super Mario franchise has always been known for simply having a good time. Nothing too complicated or confusing. I hope that you enjoy your copy of New Super Mario Bros. U when available wherever videogames are sold.

Rated E For Everyone

He's just an imposter(that miku).However,I do find what he's doing to be very amusing.

hatsume-miku2314d ago


What? Imposter? I don't know what you are talking about!

Well the formula is '2D platform game', unless you want to change genres there's not a whole lot else you can do, other than what they have done.

That said if they swapped in a different character sprite and painted the backdrops a different colour all the jaded fans would suddenly be clapping their hands and squealing "Yay, new IP, so innovative!"

hatsume-miku2314d ago (Edited 2314d ago )

I don't agree (but, ehy, this is my opinion). There are so many different types of 2D platform games, Castlevania is an example. Even if the basis are run and jump you can add so many variables to the gameplay that you can obtain tons of games very different one from the other. Mario is Mario, 2D Metroid for example are totally different, and so Contra, Sonic, Ninja Gaiden... In the era of NES and SNES a lot of games were 2D platforming, but no one ever think they are just "clones" of Super Mario...
I think the concept you want to explain is more suitable to modern FPS.

from the beach2314d ago (Edited 2314d ago )

I don't think it's fair to say they haven't varied the game - Super Mario Bros. is drastically different to Mario 3, to Mario World, to Yoshi's Island in its looks and its mechanics.

The NSMB games added in all the moves from 3D Mario, touch screen controls, four player ... the new boost mode looks intriguing.

I'm not saying all 2D platform games are the same, by any means! But it troubles me when something like LBP - one of blandest, most boring and unoriginal games the genre has ever seen - is celebrated just because it's a new IP with a cutesy, 'we love everything' aesthetic.

That seemed pretty awesome. Now I only wished that they would include a level editor.

Knight_Crawler2314d ago

Not gonna happen.

The reason for this is because Mario's main selling point is the platform levels and if they give people the tools to make there own then why bother buying Mario U 2

Darukain2314d ago

By your logic: Why would there be a LBP 2?

MasterCornholio2314d ago (Edited 2314d ago )

If you really want a side scrolling platformer with a level editor just buy Little Big Planet Vita.

No offense.

"Mario's main selling point is the platform levels"

Just like Little Big Planet but it has a level editor as well. Just read the reviews of Little Big Planet Vita and almost all of them praise the main campaign and the level editor.

If Mario doesn't have a level editor its because Nintendo doesn't want people to fabricate them.

Gr812314d ago

I hate to say it quite like this, but LBP isn't in the same league as Super Mario Bros.

from the beach2314d ago

It's for the best really, people think they can make a cool level but in reality they can't. See any number of godawful Mario hacks out there.

And that's using Mario's engine as the template, I can only imagine how bad fan made LBP stages are.

live2play2314d ago

agree with arius dion

im not saying LBP isnt quality becasue IT IS

but ...c'mon cornhole, really?

dcortz20272314d ago

@Arius Dion

Well, LBP is a new series, not an old, milked cow that refuses to die out! Sure LBP may not have Mario's numbers, but the quality is there so stop kidding yourself.

I didn't really see much of a "Boost rush" in there... seemed more like a "minor speed increase" to me. Oh, and some wind graphics going by on screen lmao.

No but really. New Super Mario Bro's is always awesome, and I have no doubt I will love this one too. Cant wait to get my Wii U :D

Nice stealth edit -_-

His original comment was Xbox 360 rules...rape his bubble.

nintendojunkie282314d ago

Bubble has been raped!...I hope it was as good for him as it was for me ;)

Spenok2313d ago

Its too bad you cant permanently take away ALL of someone's bubbles.

TongkatAli2314d ago

I don't even know what Mario looks like, all I see is a jumping Benjamin.

wanieldiik2314d ago

will this game have a reggie-cam that narrates your gameplay experience?
