Do you remember the day when Nintendo launched Super Mario brothers? That probably is the happiest day of most kids before Mobile legends, candy crush, or flappy bird. Finally, after years of rediscovering and reviving the super brothers, it is again making history as it is now available on the Nintendo Switch platform.
As usual, the storyboard started when the peaceful world of Mario brothers and their friends in the Mushroom Kingdom was disturbed by the invasion of Bowser Jr. and his Koopa Buddies. From the typical kidnap-save-me plot, the antagonists kidnapped Peach and locked her at the top of her castle.
These two brothers will be set on a new adventure, but things get harder since the giant mechanical arm slapped both of them and their friends far away from where Peach is.
The New Super Mario Bros. U plays just like the classic game; the enemies are still familiar such as Goombas and Koopa Troopas, with checkpoint flags that signal you will be up to the next level, the classic ‘three hit and game’s over’ approach and spinning shells that players need to avoid in order to survive.
If this is still inspired by the old Mario adventure game, what’s up with the new Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe?
Aside from the fact that this new Mario game is already in 2D, avid fans claimed that this is the best Mario game since “Super Mario World.” It looked better than its predecessors, with improved HD visuals and colors that may give an impression of a 3D appearance.
Back in the day, Super Mario World included stringent levels, but sometimes, gamers knew already what to expect next. With the new Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, it has dynamic levels that always surprise kids. It is said that this newly launched game makes you feel lively and energetic with shifting platforms of different shapes and sizes. Even the enemies appeared to be more dangerous than expected and may pose a serious threat if you aren’t alert enough.
Who would’ve forgotten the power of Mario brothers? Before, it used to ride on a running turtle. But now, the game has changed – every time you hit the question block, and there’s an acorn rolling out. The acorn automatically turns Mario into a flying squirrel. And yes, that’s one of the surprises of this new game.
We had been introduced to the old Super Mario Adventures where the two brothers are set to explore an unknown world to save the princess. However, with the NSMBUD, there will be plenty of secrets to uncover that will change the way you view the old game (*don’t want to spoil the secret levels and hidden treasures). But, the game is highly entertaining and with hard levels waiting to be discovered, twists and turns of the gameplay, obstacles, as well as, traps that are too tricky and hard to reach gold coins which brought powers to the brothers.
I think the old Luigi in Super Mario back in the ’90s, and 2012 on the Wii U was too sluggish compared with other high-paced games. Thanks to Nintendo for it has heard the concern of almost everybody. Now, New Super Luigi U can be played in a fast pace. It will test your reflexes and ability to make quick moves without slowing down to second guess your decision. Clearly, this is a make-or-break game.
Meet the new characters you can play with; Nimble Toadette who can power up into a super floaty Peachette and Nabbit, someone who is indestructible. You can choose to play them alongside youngsters since these two are perfect for kids who are just learning how to play.
The game- New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe, part of both the Wii U launch and its Luigi-centric expansion topped the UK Charts for top ten best played games earlier this January following Super Smash Bros Ultimate just before Christmas, Mario Tennis Aces last summer and a two-consecutive stint at no.1 for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe back in April 2017.
The game has sold significantly than previously reported with boxed launch sales already at 56 percent and is believed to be higher than the original release on Wii U in November 2013. NSMBU Deluxe also outperformed its original release in terms of distribution of copies which garnered 24.8 percent reproductions than the Wii U version did during its launching, according to an article posted by gamesindustry.biz.
Mario’s return has successfully knocked the all-time favourite game ‘FIFA 19’ down to number 2 due to week by week consecutive drops on its sale performance.
Now, the big question is ‘should you buy it’?
YES! If you like a 2D fun-filled game and might try something out of a classic game, you should buy New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe.
