Mario’s Nintendo DS outing, New Super Mario Bros., brought the famous plumber back to the platforming titles he helped create, using the DS’s extra juice to improve visuals and add some touch screen-based challenge to proceedings. Using this as its foundations, New Super Mario Bros. Wii brings the Mushroom Kingdom to Nintendo Wii, once more seeing Mario work his way through the green valleys of the Nintendo universe.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii is the first Mario Bros. title to allow multiplayer for up to four players, who can each take the role of a Mario character and work through every level. Players can either help each other throughout the multiple stages or compete for the various power ups on offer. Much like its DS incarnation, Mario now has a more complicated move set than in older Mario platformers, allowing players to perform wall-kicks and ground pounds more in line with 3D Mario titles.
By focusing on multiplayer for the first time, New Super Mario Bros. Wii transforms the platformer into a hectic side-scrolling free-for-all.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
