Nintendo re-released two popular Mario adventures this week, and both of the games are offering new content. The “New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe” and “Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story + Bowser Jr.’s Journey” games are both available for the Nintendo Switch system and the Nintendo 3DS.
The New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe title contains New Super Mario Bros. U and the more challenging New Super Luigi U. While you can play as Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Nabbit, Toadette is also joining the mix. If you find the game a bit too challenging, you will want to try out Nabbit and Toadette, as they offer extra assistance during play. Nintendo stated that when Toadette picks up a Super Crown, she turns into Peachette and can double jump, float slowly during freefall and boost back up when she falls in a pit. When playing as Nabbit, enemies won’t hurt you, and you can earn extra 1UPs at the end of stages.
New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe is a classic side-scrolling Super Mario experience, so it’s a popular option for anyone that enjoyed the original games. The game offers 164 levels and numerous hidden secrets. Players will also find a wide variety of additional game modes to entertain players of all skill levels, and you can play with up to four additional players.
You can find New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe right here on Amazon.
“After a strong 2018, both Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS add to their large and diverse libraries with two solid games starring Mario and friends,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Nintendo is giving fans on both platforms good options to kick off their entertainment in 2019.”
Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story is one of the most acclaimed entries in the beloved Mario & Luigi RPG series. This new version for Nintendo 3DS includes all of the original’s content, with revamped graphics and refined gameplay. It also includes an original new mode starring everyone’s favorite son of the famous Koopa King, Bowser Jr., as he gathers an army, creates formations, supports his allies with an arsenal of moves and generally causes chaos.
Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story + Bowser Jr.’s Journey is now available at a suggested retail price of $39.99 and can be played on Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 2DS, and the new Nintendo 2DS XL.
