New Super Mario Bros. U (Tech-Demo named "New Super Mario Bros. Mii"), is a side-scrolling 2.5D platform game for the Wii U. It is the 14th title in the main Super Mario series and the 9th installment in the Super Mario Bros. series. It is based off the New Super Mario Bros. Mii Tech demo shown at E3 2011. The game was fully revealed by Reggie Fils-Aime at E3 2012. The game slightly resembles Super Mario World, as it features baby Yoshis, diagonal pipes and similar backround styles. The game introduces the Flying Squirrel power-up, acquired by Mario and his friends by an acorn-shaped Mushroom. The game was released in North America November 18, 2013.


Mario, Luigi, Blue Toad and Yellow Toad are in Princess Peach's Castle to lunch together. Bowser suddenly arrives in his Airship, now with a giant mechanical fist, that smashes the brothers and the Toads towards the Acorn Plains. Mario and his friends crash into a tree, launching Super Acorns through the area. They see Bowser and the Koopalings kidnapping Princess Peach once again, and they go on a new adventure to save her one more time.

New Super Luigi U is a side-scrolling 2.5D platform game for the Wii U released as part of the Year of Luigi. It was released as a expansion pack for New Super Mario Bros. U and later released as a standalone game. The gameplay is largely similar to New Super Mario Bros. U, but Luigi's jumping height is higher. The game has been designed to be harder, only having 100 seconds in every stage, due to this, stages have been made shorter.

New Super Luigi U's multiplayer is included from New Super Mario Bros. U, however Mario is not present and Nabbit takes its place. As Nabbit, the player cannot take damage from enemies but cannot use any items, every item collected will be turned into a 1UP at the end of the stage.
