Nintendo's love for Super Mario is undying. After bringing back Mario Kart 8 for the Switch, Nintendo has now re-released New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe in a bid to keep transferring the Wii U favourites to the new console.

Up to four characters can join in the adventure of trying to solve puzzles and jump through hoops. The new title has New Super Luigi U included right in the game, which Nintendo is hoping will attract more Mario fans.

There are more than 160 game components in different worlds that the four friends have to complete in order to save Princess Peach and her castle from the traditional baddies Bowser, Bowser Junior and the Koopalings.

If you've played this game on the Wii U, then you'll recognise most of this game's features. There are a couple of additions, however: Toadette and Nabbit can be played in the main game, for instance, and they each have their own special features.

Toadette can turn into Peachette if you pick up certain exclusive items and Nabbit can't be hurt by some enemies. Peachette can make double jumps, float and escape from deep ditches faster.

If you don't want to play the main game, then you can choose one of the other game modes, including Coin Rush or Boost Rush Mode, which are both fun to play with multiple players.

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe is only available for the Nintendo Switch and costs around €60 (RM282). – dpa
