Back when I first purchased my Wii U, New Super Mario Bros. U was the very first game I played – making it my very first experience with the 8th generation of home console video gaming. So why I’ve only just decided to review it is beyond me.
Released in November 2012, New Super Mario Bros. U (NSMBU) is the latest entry in the “two-dimensional” side-scrolling Mario platforming series. The following August, NSMBU received an expansion pack/DLC in the form of New Super Luigi U which was released in celebration of Nintendo’s Year of Luigi.
I’ve yet to actually give New Super Luigi U a proper play-through, so until I do this review will solely focus on the standalone NSMBU title.
