New Super Mario Bros. U trailer celebrates Australian launch

The Wii U released in Australia last night (and in Europe, several hours more pertinently) and that means plenty of happy Mario fans are settling down this weekend with New Super Mario Bros. U. It’s the first classic Mario game to launch alongside a Nintendo console in many years, so take a look at the release trailer and remember precisely why the cheerful plumber team drives hardware sales through the roof every single time.

New Super Mario Bros. U uses the Wii U’s GamePad in a rather ingenious way; when jumping, you can give it a little shake for extra height. Try it one or twice and you’ll be sold on motion controls forever.
