New Super Mario Bros U is based on the New Super Mario Bros. franchise, with a mix of 2D and 3D graphics, and of course, interesting ways of utilizing the new Wii U tablet controller. New Super Mario Bros Wii U is set in the familiar Super Mario universe, and will have many other characters playable in addition to Mario. These playable characters include Luigi, Toad, Peach, Bowser, and others. The game will support co-op multiplayer, including asymmetric multiplayer where the person with the tablet controller either helps the others, or tries to prevent them from completing a mission.

Technically, the game will only support 720p resolution, it will run at 60 frames per second for a smooth gameplay experience. New Super Mario Bros U will also introduce a speed run mode, called Boost Mode, where the objective is to complete a level as fast as possible. The game also features the “Ice Flower” power-up, which was first seen a few years ago in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. The power-up allows Mario to freeze enemies by throwing snowballs.
