New Super Mario Bros U is the sequel of New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Players can play as Mario, Luigi, Yellow Toad, or Blue Toad. Also in this game people can play as his or her Mii. If one plays on the Wii U gamepad, they can either help or ruin their teammates by placing blocks by tapping the gamepad screen. This game marks the re-appearance of the Baby Yoshis with special abilities. Baby Red Yoshis can turn into a balloon for the player to fly upwards with, Baby Blue Yoshis can spit out bubbles to turn enemies into coins, and Baby Yellow Yoshis can light up dark areas, similar to the bulb berry Yoshi can obtain in Super Mario Galaxy 2.


The gameplay is similar to New Super Mario Bros Wii, with new power-ups like the Acorn Mushroom, which is an item that gives the player a Flying Squirrel Suit. They also have the choice to play as one of their created Mii characters, or even choose Mario, Luigi, Blue and Yellow Toad, like in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Baby Yoshis are back, and players can carry them when hatched out of an egg.


The game starts out with Mario, Luigi, Blue Toad, Yellow Toad, and Princess Peach all having a meal at the Castle. Bowser, and all of the other Koopalings show up in their own Airship. Bowser then uses a mechanical arm to grab the four heroes, and flings them far away into the first world, Acorn Plains.
