Today’s offerings from the mighty N include the latest and shiniest Mario Bros side-scrolling adventure. Sure, it’s another Wii U port (which I believe was also a Wii port), but so many missed out on it and they’ve added some new stuff to it to make it fresh again. Now, I think all we’re really missing is a Mario Maker games on the Switch and most of the Wii U titles will be with us again.
Of course, if Mario isn’t your speed, there are plenty of other indy titles to rev your engine.

U game and the faster, more challenging New Super Luigi U game – both of which include Nabbit and newly added Toadette, who can use the new Super Crown to transform herself into Peachette, as playable characters.
