Just downloaded New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe and...Honestly, I have no idea why people dislike this game so much. It's as close to Super Mario World as Nintendo has ever gotten EVER, and while the levels aren't AS memorable as they are in Mario World, the level designs are all pretty damn good.

Easily my favourite 2D Mario game since Yoshi's Island. One of my all-time favourite Mario Games period, and while I do agree that full price for the game - even with the Luigi expansion - is too much, I have to say I love it. Plus, now that I don't have to play it with a sideways Wiimote, I like it even more!

Agreed. I enjoyed the game a lot on the Wii U and I still enjoy it on the Switch. I can definitely understand the artistic direction criticism, as I was feeling a bit of the NSMB style fatigue myself. Even taken on its own I find the style to be a bit sterilized and plain (though better than previous NSMB games). However, I enjoyed the rest of the game too much to let that bring down my opinion of it.

The fake Scottish accents people are trying to put on while meming Pokemon SW/SH can't even begin to be described as cringe worthy.

New Mario U is definitely my favorite of the New titles, up there with 3 and World for me.

The thing holding it back is pretty much its presentation being the same as the last 3.

Otherwise is a pretty charming game, I love little details like every level having its own name, the connected overworld, the themes of the worlds being about food, sparkling waters and the dessert desert makes these tropes just a tad more special. I like how the sky level gets increasingly more dark as you traverse through it till the boss. Every Koopaling gets its own airship plus boss fights being more unique, taking away their wands and making them more based around their personality and the fact that you are travelling back to Peach's Castle as the final world is another small but great detail that makes the game all the more great. It also had one really inspired level motif with the starry night in the forest.

Yeah, listened a bunch of them. Man, they're really trying hard with their accents which ends up with me not understanding a single thing they said ...

Nintendo Switch eShop Best-Sellers as of 3/2/2019

This list, is it best sellers of all time for each region or just for a certain time period?



Just beat NSMBU Deluxe (just the mario version not Luigi U) and I have to say....easily my favorite post 2000 Mario title. Yes, even above Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 as well as Odyssey. There were so many levels, so many hidden areas, such good level design and now on Switch it actually has GREAT controls! 9.3/10

So yeah, the art direction and music are both bleh, the story is as nonexistent as ever, and it's not like the game has the best performance....but Gameplay wise it's outstanding. Might be the best 2D Mario Game ever in terms of pure level design and variety (I still think Super Mario World, Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, and Super Mario Bros. 3 are all better overall, but at least some of that is pure nostalgia)! I know that's blasphemy, the basic music is forgettable, and the art direction is...okay you know what? The art Direction is actually really good, too. It's emulating SMW and does a remarkable job while still making things its own. The world map is huge, there are more levels and more unique obstacles, and...

Honestly, I do not understand the hate. I know you folks have explained 'it's too similar to the other NSMB titles" and that's probably true, but this is the only one i've gone through more than once, the single iteration of the game where they got just about everything perfect or at least the best int he series, the most to do, the most variety in worlds, the most vast open world map...

Yeah, for all mario games, my list goes:

1 - Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
2 - Super Mario World
3 - Super Mario Bros 3
4 - Yoshi's Island
5 - New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
6 - Super Mario Odyssey
7 - Super Mario Galaxy 2
8 - Super Mario Galaxy



I got it all, baby! 

PS4, Switch, WiiU, XBO, PC
Vita, 3DS, Android

Top 3 this generation: 
Bloodborne, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Dark Souls III

I am quite sure that the Wii U version got an update that allowed to use any controller.

NSMBU is the most complete game of the NSMB quartet and if it had been treated like Super Mario 3D World with the infusion of new world themes and bosses, it would be receiving much more positive recognition. It's a shame that Nintendo had the intent to make 3D Mario more popular than 2D Mario during the 2011-2013 period, that's why NSMB2 and NSMBU received mostly a remix of the themes used in the previous two NSMB games; only the giant enemies in NSMBU's jungle world are new, but otherwise it's the same grass, desert, water, ice, jungle, mountain, sky and lava world themes in all four NSMB games.

Super Mario 3D World's variety in themes demonstrated that the problem wasn't that Nintendo had no ideas for Mario games anymore, but rather that they crammed pretty much everything new into the 3D games of the same era. That was deliberate.

And now it has been already more than six years since the last 2D Mario game. A new game is overdue at this point, and given that Nintendo tarnished the NSMB name with their less than 100% efforts, it would be for the best to drop the 'New' from the title and call the next game Super Mario Bros. <something>.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
