New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe confirmed for 2019.

News by Kat Bailey, .

The best New Super Mario Bros. is coming to the Switch, Nintendo confirmed during today's Nintendo Direct. The former Wii U launch title will be launching next year.

Along with other new features, New Super Mario Bros. U will include the New Super Luigi U expansion pack for free. It confirms rumors from last month that it would be joining Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and a host of other Wii U games on the platform.

New Super Mario Bros. isn't the best Mario, not by a long shot (sorry, Jeremy), but it is definitely the tightest and most attractive game in the NSMB sub-series. It's a welcome addition to the Switch library.

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe will be out next year. Look for it January 11.

    Am I the only one that liked the Wii one more, or am I just weird? Anyway, got to figure almost all the Wii U stuff makes the leap; hopefully 3D World does soon. That's the whole reason I bought a Wii U!

    I personally have no real love for the New SMB games but much like Tropical Freeze there is an audience for this.

    Is it wrong that I am still pining on them releasing the remake they did on the Wii for Fatal Frame 2?

    If this had been an announcement for Super Mario 3D World I would have done a happy dance. But alas, it is not, and there will be no dancing.

    Fantastic news! I can’t wait to download it and proceed to ignore New Super Mario Bros U in favour of obsessively trying to get Super Plays in every level of Super Luigi U.
