E3 2012: New Super Mario Bros. U Hopping Onto Wii U

Miiverse will be a big part

Nintendo has confirmed New Super Mario Bros. U for Wii U, boasting that it will be the first social Mario game, making significant use of Miiverse. The trailer showed Yoshi, a flying 'squirrel' suit, and there's once again an emphasis on co-op multiplayer with Wii Remotes, while there's also a 'boost' mode that brings the GamePad into the title.

The trailer looked like the expected Mario platforming, but with a lovely HD sheen. Nintendo has confirmed that it will be a launch title and there'll be an Iwata Asks with further details after the conference, which we look forward to reading.

It's Mario on launch day, need we say more?
