There's a new 'Super Mario' game for Nintendo's Switch, and it's a modern mash-up of classic Mario
- Nintendo just dropped a major re-release on the Nintendo Switch with "New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe."
- The game originally launched on Nintendo's failed Wii U, but is getting new life on Nintendo's Switch as a repackaged "Deluxe" edition which includes a bunch of extra stuff.
- Having spent several hours playing "New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe," I'd strongly recommend it to any classic "Super Mario" superfans.
"New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe" is Super Mario as pastiche: It's composed entirely from bits and pieces of various classic, 2D Super Mario games.Character selection is lifted from"Super Mario Bros. 2," and the overworld map is from "Super Mario Bros. 3." Each Koopa Kid boss fight is directly reminiscent of the same boss fights in "Super Mario World." That's blended with elements of the more recent "New Super Mario Bros." series, and it produces a delightful evolution of both.
Here's what I mean:
"New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe" is two games in one: Both "New Super Mario Bros. U," and "New Super Luigi U."
What's the difference between the two games? Difficulty.
If you've ever played literally any 2D Super Mario game, included "Super Mario Run" on smartphones, you're familiar with the gameplay of "New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe."
Multiplayer is now a standard of 2D Super Mario games, and "New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe" is no exception.
Each of the two games included are lengthy, and come with plenty of bonus stuff for completionists.
"New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe" is a perfect game for the Nintendo Switch.
One caveat: If you're one of the 5.77 million people who bought this game on the Wii U, way back in 2012, then you may not need this one.
"New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe" is available now on the Nintendo Switch for $60. Check out the game in action right here:
