Lots of New Super Mario Bros U details have been revealed in the latest edition of Game Informer magazine, including fresh info on the worlds, story enemies and a new mode called Boost Rush.
The story will come as no surprise - Bowser has kidnapped Princess Peach and it's up to Mario to save her. Along the way, he has to defeat Koopalings in each of the game's castles while Boom Boom from Super Mario Bros 3 (and, more recently, Super Mario 3D Land), will appear at the end of the fortresses in the middle of each world.
Talking of worlds, seven have been confirmed so far: You can expect a tropical world called Sparkling Waters, Acorn Plains, Frosted Glacier and an area called Layer Cake Dessert which features melting puddings). There are also areas similar to Forest Of Illusion from Super Mario World and Sky World from Super Mario Bros 3. Finally, there is a world surrounded by a tornado.
Acorn Plains, Sparkling Waters (tropical), Frosted Glacier, Layer Cake Desert (complete with melting desserts), areas similar to Forest of Illusion and Sky World and a world surround by a tornado.
Fans of Super Mario World will also be excited about the map as dozens of levels are reported to be scattered across one giant map. You can zoom in on some areas such as the Cookie Dome and Forest Of Illusion.
New Super Mario Bros U, like Super Mario 3D Land, also features a more challenging mode to go with the main game. It's called Boost Rush in which all the levels will automatically scroll.
New Super Mario Bros U is a Wii U launch window game.
