EoD - Wii U holiday
 

New Super Mario Bros. U - second round of new details

- Big Island included
- Torpedo Teds, Koopalings, Monty Moles all return
- Morton Jr. wields a giant hammer that can shape the platforms around you
- King Koopa’s personal airship will dive in for a battle
- Bowser Jr. is prone to ambushing you at random
- one fight with him takes place underwater with a Clown Submarine that is constantly launching torpedoes
- you have to guide the torpedoes back towards Bowser Jr.
- Challenge Mode levels offer tough challenges set in very simple level design
- challenge example: dodging fireballs thrown by two Fire Bros
- dodge for over 40 seconds to claim the best prize
- complete more objectives to unlock more in menus separated by broad type
- types include Boost Mode, coin collecting, gathering 1-Ups or one simply called - - - - Special example: get Monty to the finish by putting him on a raft, where he will constantly charge at you. Avoid him killing you or you killing him
- he’ll blindly scamper right off that raft
- there are other enemies that board the raft
- raft stops moving if more than 2 characters are on it
- more challenge examples: Make it through a ‘Big Island’ level without killing a single creature, make it through a stage without touching the ground, use a single turtle shell to score a certain amount of extra lives
- Coin Battle modes come from single player
- customize the level with coin placement
- craft coin for you and your friends

Skip this, pick up Sticker Star for your Mario title this year instead. It's waaaay more deserving of your time and money.

Umm, they're completely different games for different systems. Just because they're both Mario doesn't mean much. I'm probably going to buy both, but not everyone wholikes rpgs like Paper Mario would want a 2d platformer and vice-versa

What a ridiculous statement. They aren't even remotely similar games other than they're setting in the Mario universe.

Ill take both.

Nah.

I'll always enjoy the Paper Mario series more than the NSMB series, but I can't see anyone buying a Wii U without least picking up NSMBU.

@TheBitBlock

I have a better idea, I'll buy both! I can't see why any nsmb fan wouldn't want to buy this game, it sounds like it's going to be the best nsmb game to date.

Are you joking? When I first saw NSMBU I was like meh, it'll probabbly be the same. Seeing how there's so much more content in it though makes me WANT to buy it.

Just stop, you are not an authority, you are ignorant and biased to the point of hilarity with an overinflated sense of self worth. I really hope no one around here takes you seriously.

I like what they're doing with challenges. It's sad that Mario Kart abandoned the MK:DS challenge mode...

lol @TheBitBlock flaming! :lol:

Anyway NSMBU looks to be the best and most creative NSMB yet! The only thing that's bugging me about it is lack of new power-ups.

Y'know to be fair, at least this game is honest about what it is. It's not like Paper Mario Sticker Star where once again it wants to be different from the the first two Paper Mario RPGs we loved.
