E3: Become a flying squirrel in New Super Mario Bros. U


5:50 PM on 06.06.2012



Jonathan Holmes and Shannon from Nintendo are back for another two-part Wii U demonstration. This time, they're playing New Super Mario Bros. U, and -- I'll admit it -- the game looks considerably more fun than I expected it would. It's that good ol' Nintendo charm at work.

In this first video, we're given a look at the "flying squirrel transformation" (it's not a suit!) and the new cooperative functionality which allows a second player to interact with enemies and drop blocks into the level using the Wii U's GamePad. Seems like a fantastic way to troll your friends.

In the second video, viewable below, we get to see tiny balloon Yoshi. Enough said.

New Super Mario Bros. U Boost Rush is ass-boosting fun

A lot of people poop on New Super Mario Bros. Wii for not being original enough. Personally, I don't see it. The game looked a lot like its prequel on the DS, but thanks to the four-person simultaneous co-op, it played like n...more

E3: New Super Mario Bros. U announced

In a move that should shock no one, Nintendo just announced New Super Mario Bros. U at its E3 2012 press briefing. No word if it'll be a launch title or not (it should be), but it's looking like a NSMB game alright!The defining factor for me, though, is the inclusion of baby Yoshis. SO CUTE! Oh, and there's a new flying suit. But BABY YOSHI BLOWS BUBBLES, GUYS!more
