New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Nintendo Wii)
New Super Mario Bros. on Wii offers the first multiplayer Super Mario Bros. platform game ever. The game offers a platform Mario experience for all the family to enjoy, so you can now take on the adventures of Mario with your friends in tow. Players can navigate the side-scrolling worlds alone as before, or invite up to three friends to join them at the same time on the same level at any point in the game, for competitive and cooperative multiplayer fun on your Nintendo Wii, or on your Nintendo Wii U in Wii Mode.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii retains the elements we all know and love, but also introduces some fantastic new levels and surprises, including quirky new suits, characters, and innovative ways to use the Wii Remote to guide your character through the adventure.
Playing four-player in New Super Mario Bros. Wii does not have to mean working together. In this new multiplayer activity, you can either help or hinder your family and friends; you can chuck your friends' characters at baddies to save yourself, or jump on their head to get ahead. You can even use your Yoshi to gobble them up and then spit them out! But it's not all about competitive gameplay – you can work alongside your friends and help each other through the levels. Either way, this game is guaranteed to bring out some healthy rivalry between friends and families.
- In New Super Mario Bros. Wii, players can pick each other up to save them from danger, or toss them into it.
- Mario, Luigi, and two Toads are all playable characters, while many others from the Mushroom Kingdom make appearances throughout the game.
- New items include the propeller suit, which will shoot players high into the sky with just a shake of the Wii Remote, and Mario's new ability to transform into Penguin Mario.
