The Best New Super Mario Bros. is Coming to Switch

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe confirmed for 2019.

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.
