We already got a small taste of it during Sunday’s Nintendo Direct presentation, but Reggie Fils-Aime just officially announced New Super Mario Bros. U.
The side-scrolling platformer will be heavily integrated with the Miiverse social network and include four-player play.
The graphics are gorgeous and show Mario running and jumping through a vibrant Mushroom Kingdom full of baby Yoshis, Koopa Troopas, Goombas, and underwater swimming. The video also showed Mario’s new wingsuit.
Reggie also confirmed that the player with the Wii U GamePad will be able to drop blocks along the map to help the other players advance.
