Developers at Nintendo have dreamed of creating a simultaneous multiplayer Super Mario Bros. game for decades. The Wii console finally makes that dream come true for everyone this holiday season. Now players can navigate the side-scrolling worlds alone as before or invite up to three others to join them at the same time on the same level at any point in the game for competitive and cooperative multiplayer fun. With the multiplayer mode, the newest installment of the most popular video game franchise is designed to bring yet another type of family entertainment into living rooms and engage groups of friends in fast-paced Super Mario Bros. fun.

Gameplay - New Super Mario Bros. Wii, like all the previous releases in the Super Mario Bros. franchise is a side-scrolling platforming game where players collect coins as they attempt to make their way through progressively more difficult game levels using their ability to time jumps over obstacles and avoid a slew of enemies. But although the game contain several well-deserved nods to previous games in the series in the form of iconic characters like Mario, Luigi and two Toads, as well as familiar enemies, sound effects and levels, it is not simply another trip down Mario Bros. memory lane. Taking advantage of the flexibility and power of the Wii and Wii Remote, New Super Mario Bros. Wii manages to preserve the retro experience that fans love about the series, while adding new game features. Notable additions among these include, expansive play levels and new powerups and characters, but by far the most important, and in fact game-defining new feature is simultaneous multiplayer.

Simultaneous Multiplayer - Since the very first Super Mario Bros. game took the world by storm in the late 1980s gamers anxious to get into the action have patiently and impatiently waited their turn as the infamous 'player 2.' Those days are no more. In New Super Mario Bros. Wii players can now navigate the side-scrolling worlds alone as before or invite up to three others to join them at the same time, on the same level, at any point in the game for competitive and cooperative multiplayer fun. With the multiplayer mode, the newest installment of the most popular video game franchise is designed to bring yet another type of family entertainment into living rooms and engage groups of friends in fast-paced Super Mario Bros. fun.

Controller Choices Via the Wii Remote - In another nod to the series' Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) roots, the Wii Remote controller used with New Super Mario Bros. Wii is held sideways, allowing for easy, classic inputs using the D-pad to direct playable characters, the 1 button to jump and 2 button to spit out projectiles like snowballs and fireballs. In addition, players can access powerups with their choice of either the push of a button, or by shaking the Wii remote, again demonstrating the perfect merging of classic gameplay and modern game design which is New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

Features
Video Features New Super Mario Bros. Wii offers a combination of cooperation and competition. Players can pick each other up to save them from danger or toss them into it.
Video Features Mario, Luigi and two Toads are all playable characters, while many others from the Mushroom Kingdom make appearances throughout the game. Players can even ride different Yoshi characters and use their tongues to swallow enemies – or their fellow players.
Video Features In some areas, players use the motion abilities of the Wii Remote controller. The first player to reach a seesaw might make it tilt to help his or her character. reach a higher platform – and then tilt it incorrectly just to mess with other players.
Video Features 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.
Video Features At the end of each stage during the simultaneous multiplayer mode, players are ranked based on their score, the coins collected and the number of enemies defeated.

    Expert Review New Super Mario Bros. Wii - Video Game Review

    New Super Mario Bros. Wii is the kind of game that comes out once every five years. So rare is it to see a game that unifies elements that should be common to every game but seldom are: Innovation, purpose, and fun. In a game library saturated by rubbish, New Super Mario Bros. Wii is guaranteed to be the Wii’s game of the year, and a formidable contender for the best Wii title yet. Nintendo guru Shigeru Miyamoto has been trying unsuccessfully for years to incorporate on-screen multiplayer into Mario titles; so what better venue to do this with than the Wii, “the console for everyone.” More than single player marvels like Twilight Princess, and more than Smash Brothers Brawl (which can leave beginners unhappily struggling against veterans) New Super Mario Bros. Wii embodies the console’s intended spirit....read the full review
    Expert Review New Super Mario Bros Wii for the Nintendo WIi Review

    For a few weeks now I’ve been playing New Super Mario Bros. Wii, as I’ve gotten this for a Christmas gift. The first question that came into my head was the same question that popped into everyone’s head – why should anybody buy a game for $50 that was in style 25 years ago (i.e. the side-scroller platformer)? After popping in the game for the first time, I could see its appeal. It addition to being upgraded nostalgia, the game’s real greatness comes from its multiplayer capacity. Originally, you would side-scroll as a single character. Now, up to four of your friends can go through each level…all at the same time....read the full review
