New Super Mario Bros. U

Recommended Posts

I kinda hope that they're just using the old world map as a placeholder and we might get a brand new one, but if not this is still some quality looking DLC.

 

I want to say "new music please?" but let's not kid ourselves...

tell that to the other NSMB sequels

 

The other NSMB games did have actual engine tweaks though as well as of course the new art and course design and... sometimes... music.

 

 

Man even if we don't get new music how great would it be just to add a few "Luigi"-ish tracks?  Like make the overworld a NSMB-style version of Mario 2's theme, and the ghost houses a NSMB-style Luigi's Mansion theme?

I think you're assuming all these levels will be new.

 

I think it will be similar to how 3DLand does it. Hell, I bet the idea CAME from 3DLand. It'll probably be some new twists on levels, hard versions of levels, a bit of new levels, etc.

Really hope the game has at least a unique final boss. A showdown with King Boo would be oh so awesome.

 

We're probably gonna get nothing better than a Giant Dry Bowser fight, as sad as that may be

 

Though, I do kinda wish that they'd at least swap Peach out with Daisy

I think I am gonna get Luigi U on digital.

 

Anyone else?

I already own it, digitally.

 

It's a lot of fun, even if it's short. Some of the new levels are well designed and challenging enough, but the multiplayer can be even more difficult to coordinate than usual. I also thought it was really lame the way the bosses are pretty much unchanged from the original game. I know they aren't the draw, but that's just lazy and doesn't match the higher difficulty level of the regular stages. It gives the whole thing a rom-hacky feel.

 

But if you want to play as Luigi and want another 80+ (short) levels, go for it.

I already downloaded the DLC.  

 

And fuck me is it hard sometimes.  The levels want me to be quick and precise a lot of the time and Luigi's so slippery.  Anyways, a little story to tell:

 

I got to the end of the ghost ship in the Water World, there was a bunch of Boo's circling around the area right before the flag and I'm supposed to jump through them.  They expand their circle every now and then though, so I sat there for a while waiting for them to group back together in a small circle to get the timing right.

 

And they just fucking didn't.  So I figured, "I'll just wait for the small opening again and I'll jump through them and be on my merry way."

 

And I shit you not, right as a I jump forward the little assholes group back into the smaller circle and I died.

Fun stuff though.

Just so you guys know, NSLU had a cheat code where player 1 can play as Nabbit. Great for collecting 1-ups when you need them. Hold ZL and ZR as you enter the stage. I believe it's the B trigger if you're using a Wii Remote.

So Luigi gets his own NSMBU DLC, a sequel to his own game, a pivotal role in the new M&L game, and now gets to storm Peach's castle. Whether she wants to or not.

 

Year of the Luigi indeed.

Is it bad that the last two lines of that paragraph sound inuendoish?

I'll probably get the hard copy, I like getting different coloured game cases :P

And hard copy's too (still think Nintendo should let you register your game so you could download a digital copy if you loose or have yours stolen
