New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe Review Summary

StrongCritic Consensus

Jovial Platforming

Loads of Content

Few New Additions

A remaster of one of the best Wii U games, some critics feel that it doesn't quite live up to its "deluxe" title. However, this is still a great platformer, especially for those who missed it the first time around.

Critic Reviews for New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe is an enjoyable re-release, but doesn't stand quite as tall next to modern platformers.

Compared to the classic 2D Super Mario games this is disappointingly anodyne, but it's still competently made platform fun that can be enjoyed by everyone.

One of the best Wii U games gets a wonderful Switch remaster that brings to life its multiplayer mayhem better than ever before.

This platformer was fun on Wii U, and the Deluxe version gives the game a well-earned extra life on Switch

Mario and Luigi are as agile as ever in Nintendo Switch's latest remaster, but they're starting to show their age.

Seven years after its original release, New Super Mario Bros U is still a great platform game, with lots of secrets, and incredibly fun to play in local multiplayer. DX has not many improvements from the original Wii U version.

We are facing one of the best 2D platforms of recent years and if it has never been played, it is a perfect opportunity to do so.

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe is a huge amount of great 2D Mario (and Luigi) platforming and it's at its easiest to pick up and play on Switch, but even with the sheer volume of content this doesn't really feel like a ‘Deluxe' game. Toadette's easier gameplay comes at the cost of a regular difficulty fourth character, and makes for a token appearance of Peach as a playable character, while the best all round multiplayer fun has been left behind with the Wii U's GamePad.
