New Super Mario Bros Wii

A brand new 2D Super Mario Bros. title for the Wii!

Developers at Nintendo have dreamed of creating a simultaneous multiplayer Super Mario Bros. game for decades. The Wii console finally makes that dream come true for everyone this holiday season.

Now players can navigate the side-scrolling worlds alone as before or invite up to three others to join them at the same time on the same level at any point in the game for competitive and cooperative multiplayer fun in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. With the multiplayer mode, the newest installment of the most popular video game franchise is designed to bring yet another type of family entertainment into living rooms and engage groups of friends in fast-paced Super Mario Bros. fun.

FEATURES:

  • New Super Mario Bros. Wii offers a combination of cooperation and competition. Players can pick each other up to save them from danger or toss them into it.
  • Mario, Luigi, and two Toads are all playable characters, while many others from the Mushroom Kingdom make appearances throughout the game. Players can even ride different Yoshi characters and use their tongues to swallow enemies - or their fellow players.
  • In some areas, players use the motion abilities of the Wii Remote controller. The first player to reach a seesaw might make it tilt to help his or her character reach a higher platform - and then tilt it incorrectly just to mess with other players.
  • New items include the propellor suit, which will shoot players high into the sky with just a shake of the Wii Remote and Mario's new ability to transform into Penguin Mario.
  • At the end of each stage during the simultaneous multiplayer mode, players are ranked based on their score, coins collected and the number of enemies defeated.

Great

The Mario franchise. Nintendo's prize horse. It's gone through countless recreations and new directions. From 2D to 3D to racing, golf, and tennis spin-offs, well you get the idea. When the average person thinks 'video games', Super Mario is at the forefront of those thoughts....read full review

It looks slightly the same as the DS one, but it's way too early to judge now. I'm guessing it will be great.

I'm glad that they're putting Yoshi back in Mario games more. I read a Nintendo power magazine and it asked why Yoshi wasn't in new super mario bros, and it said it wanted to get back into Mario tradition. I went what, Mario's had tradition for 25 years, put Yoshi back in!

Cuculainn: It does look like that but from what I saw in the trailers it looks like picking up and throwing objects has some part in the gameplay. That reminds me of Super Mario Bros 2 which will probably give the game a fresher feel gameplay wise. My only worry is I won't find a lot of people who'll play the multiplayer game with me.

I'm worried that it is a Little Big Planet ripoff, but it could be fun. The gameplay they showed didn't look great.

I've been playing this a lot recently and hopefully I'll be able to make a review. Although I'm willing to bet someone will make one first.

Would have been better if it had more Yoshi. I got it for x-mas.
