Last month it was rumored that Nintendo could be bringing New Super Mario Bros. U to the Nintendo Switch. Given that Nintendo brought Mario Kart 8 onto the Switch where it was previously launched as a Wii U exclusive, this idea didn’t seem too ridiculous. Turns out the rumors were right because that’s exactly what Nintendo has done.
The company has announced that New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe will be coming to the Switch early 2019. This will contain both New Super Mario Bros. U and also New Super Luigi U games, in which gamers will basically be getting two games at once. Not only will Mario, Luigi, and Toad be returning as playable characters, but the Deluxe version of the game will also see the addition of Nabbit and Toadette.
As far as a release date is concerned, the game has been set for a release on January 11th, 2019, so if you enjoyed the Wii U version of the game, or if you didn’t get a chance to play it, now’s as good a time as any. Pricing was not mentioned but chances are we might be looking at it being priced like a regular full game, but we expect more details will be shared at a later date closer to the game’s launch.
