In this adventure, Mario and his friends return to the video games roots f the famous plumber, with a 2D platform game where players must advance through the levels of the same levels of coins and hazards, to reach flag that is at the end of each level.

Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe's new worlds

The game is divided into 8 worlds with their own levels, each with a different theme, such as aquatic worlds, swampy worlds, snow worlds, among others. At the end of each world, the player must enter a castle where is necessary fighting with a boss to be closer to Princess Peach's rescue.

Players will also have the help of various objects that will facilitate their journey, such as the classic fungi that change your size, flowers that freeze enemies, nuts that allow you to float a few moments in the air and also Mario's faithful companion, the dinosaur Yoshi.

You can face the levels alone or with up to three friends as it supports up to four simultaneous players. If your goal is to complete the levels without much difficulty, I recommend playing it alone, but if what you want are hours of chaotic fun, then you should get some friends, maybe the levels become more difficult because you have to be taking care and reliving, but the laughter will not stop.

The differences in the new console.

This port to the Switch has the expansion New Super Luigi U, where Mario's brother, Luigi, is the protagonist and where you must complete the levels in less than 100 seconds. Another novelty of the Switch is the addition of two new playable characters, Toadette and Nabbit, who also have new abilities, such as jumps in the air, which make the levels much easier.

While you notice a graphics improvement comparing it with the Wii U, the graphics are not the best, they could even be confused with the graphics of a portable game. Speaking of portable games, this takes advantage of the star feature of the Switch that is able to play anywhere and with anyone.

It is a game that you should experience if you are a fan of 2D platform games or classic Mario games, it is a very fun game that has some very challenging scenarios, especially if you want to collect all the star coins.

While I consider New Super Mario Bros. U as a must-see game, I also consider that if you are one of those who has the original on Wii U and it still works, this port is not worth much, as it only has two new characters and the ability to play it anywhere. But if you are one of the people who did not have the opportunity to play it in its initial release, this is an opportunity that you should not miss.
