New Super Mario Bros. U: 7 worlds confirmed, Boost Rush mode detailed
New Super Mario Bros. U has received a batch of lovely new screens and details from GameInformer this week. Nintendo has revealed seven worlds so far, along with a host of new plot and gameplay features.
The game will – once again – see Mario chasing after a kidnapped Princess Peach while battling hordes of Bowser’s minions across at least seven new worlds.
ONM reports on Game Informer’s coverage of the game, listing seven of the worlds as “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.”
The game will also include a new Boost Rush mode which makes any level scroll, meaning you have to keep up with the stage as it shifts. No pressure then.
Meanwhile, Nintendo has revealed a batch of New Super Mario Bros. U screens that underline a Super Mario World influence, including art, enemies, gameplay features and other elements taken from Nintendo’s 1992 SNES classic.
