After work yesterday this was already sold out in three stores in my direct neighbourhood. Since I'm having friends over today to play this, I need it today so decided to go digital. I actually skipped pre order and the risk of getting it later for that reason. Well, I'm gonna enjoy the hell out of this tonight with my friends and tomorrow I'll probably binge it through if I'm not to hungover.

Want to start Tales but cant put this down.
Its soooo good. Not having played any of the New 2D Mario games probably helps but still awesome. Need to brush up on my skills cos the game is kicking my arse...and fairly early on too.

Is this version identical to the Wii U version or are there weird compromises. I got burned with Captain Toad Treasure Tracker and the stupid floating blue circle on the Switch. Is there anything the Wii U version of NSMB does better than this? I have the Wii U version that includes Luigi U...

@Dreamliner I know what you mean with the blue dot but playing this game handheld mode helps a lot of the problem.

Just the boost mode and less challenges

@1UP_MARIO What makes Captain Toad Treasure Tracker on the Switch docked particularly bad, is the blue dot of doom is CONSTANTLY pulsing and ALWAYS on screen wiggling around randomly as you push buttons on the controller. Just awful and so distracting. I wouldn't whine so badly if it went away until you shook the controller or pressed a button then it came back for you to manipulate an element.

That has has taught me that porting the control scheme won't always be so seamless, which is why I ask now for new ported games. (I also found out for Captain Toad they switched out Mario 3D World levels for Mario Odyssey levels.)

I don't even have a Switch yet (still working through Wii U games and secretly holding out for a "New Switch XL"). The more games I can push onto Switch with these ports, the sooner I can...Switch.

There’s something very reassuring and relaxing about a 2D Mario game. Really enjoying the game so far.

@Dreamliner I have captain toad on the Wii u and enjoyed it a lot. I bought it for the switch again to replay it and the odyssey levels and the switch game was reasonably priced. Keep the Wii u and it’s games. I find it other than Mario kart deluxe and hyrule warriors the Wii u games to play better. Also still buying Wii u games for cheap and enjoying the games

@GyroZeppeli I don't have a Switch yet and bought it before I had a chance to play the demo. I think the best thing is to play it fully on the Wii U and perhaps again on the 3DS.

@1UP_MARIO I don't plan to sell the Wii U ever, but if a port is pretty much identical (like Tropical Freeze, MK8D and hopefully NSMBUD) then I'd rather play them on the newest platform, I just don't want compromises.

@BenGrimm Yeah, might be the familiarity. It's a formula perfected some 30 years back, but with some modern touches to make it more welcoming for new players. Like most 2D Mario games, I love this one so far.

I bought Deluxe on Friday, I love it! I didn't have a Wii U, so it's the first time I have played it.

I'd hope the next three 2D mario games are (in any order):-

1. New Super Mario Collection (New, Wii and 2)
2. Mario Maker (port or sequel)
3. New Super Mario game

@1UP_MARIO Same here! Wii U is still a joy to play on. What about NSMBUDX in that picture? LOL

@MarioBrickLayer You mean new New Super Mario Bros. game.

@BlueOcean it is. I picked up pokken tournament for my kids for 7 pounds and rayman legends again for 6 pounds last year after it’s switch releases.

Looking for some help. We just beat this game last night but are missing one star on our save file and I can't figure it out. We have done everything to my knowledge. All star coins, all Nabbits caught, every level beaten, 100% on superstar road but still only showing 4 of 5 stars.

Searched the web and didn't find an answer so was hoping someone here may have some insight.

Thanks in advance!

@redd214 Have you done every exit? World 5 has the situation where a few levels have the secret exit be the way to progress meanwhile the normal exit does nothing but contribute to 100% completion.

@Grumblevolcano just figured it out. I beat one of the earlier levels with Nabbit just to try him out. I guess since it's basically easy mode if you beat a level with him it doesn't count towards 100%. Replayed the level with mario and got the fifth star!

This game is terrific and well worth the money even at full price (I bought a used copy and got it for $50 instead of $60). The gameplay is polished to perfection, and there is a TON of content. Yes, it would have been nice if they had included ports of the earlier DS, 3DS, and Wii games to give us the definitive New Super Mario Bros., but even without that, there is still hours of gaming goodness here.

Just got this in today. Pretty fun time so far, and I've died quite a bit more than I thought I would (not too stressful though since you build up an abundance of lives early on). Nearing the end of Layer-Cake Desert.

Currently Playing:
Switch - NSMBU Deluxe
PS4 - Moss

I've gotten a bit further into this game, and I'm finding it almost too difficult to be enjoyable.
