New Super Mario Bros Wii Pre Order

New Super Mario BrosThe Super Mario Brothers, Mario and Luigi, in their 2D form are finally back on a Nintendo Console. After missing out the Nintendo 64 and the Gamecube, New Super Mario Bros Wii is due for release on the Nintendo Wii on 27th November 2009 in the UK. The release date in the USA is 2 weeks earlier on 13th November 2009. So that’s 60 pre-order days to go in the UK, at the time of writing.

With a Recommended Retail Price (RRP) for New Super Mario Bros Wii of £39.99 in the UK, most retailers are selling the game at a preorder price with discounts. They are competing with each other on price, so I’ve created the table below to compare the prices, to find the best deal. All have free delivery!

The last time that Mario and Luigi were unleashed in this form on a Nintendo Console (apart from the handheld versions, GameBoy Advance and the Nintendo DS) was in the days of the iconic Super Nintendo.

For me, New Super Mario Bros Wii will be one of the must have Wii games for the Christmas 2009 period, along with Wii Fit Plus, DJ Hero Wii and Tony Hawk Ride Wii.

First announced at the E3 conference back in July 2009, New Super Mario Bros Wii has had me salivating at the mouth in anticipation ever since. I’m hoping it’ll be a massive step in the right direction for this legendary side-scrolling 2D series.

New Super Mario Bros Wii will be the first game in the Mario Brothers series to feature simultaneous multiplayer gameplay in normal levels since the original Mario Bros. This new version will be more advanced though because of the ability to you can now have up to 4 players, all playing at the same time. This is a great addition for New Super Mario Bros and even better since you can play either co-operatively or in competition with the other players in order to clear a level.

In you want to work as a team to solve the puzzles on a level, or share the power-ups, coins etc then go ahead! Personally, I think New Super Mario Bros Wii will be better when you are competing against the other characters. From the gaming reports and videos below it seems that you can do some pretty nifty stuff to the other players. These include, stealing items from them so they can’t power-ups or extra lives. You can try and run as quickly as you can to ensure they fall behind and to make sure you always get to any goodies first (whether that is item blocks, coins or enemies). There is also the ability to use your rivals as a springboard by bouncing off their heads, to reach higher items.

Most fans of Mario games adore Yoshi, bottom line – he’s a legend! In New Super Mario Bros Wii you can ride him, and it looks like the game has similar characteristics to the Yoshis found in Super Mario World and Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island. When playing in competition Yoshi is definitely an asset to have and covet. If you are riding Yoshi you can eat your competitors and then spit him into enemies, or random cannons. Or, even crueler, just hold them in you mouth, so they can’t collect anything at all!

The gameplay of New Super Mario Bros Wii is played in the classic style, by holding the Wii Remote horizontally. Most movements in the game, like jumping and attacks are performed with the buttons, whereas others such as spinning in midair or picking up other players are performed by shaking the Wii Remote. The characters also have a couple of new suits to try on in the game; these are the Propeller Suit and a Penguin Suit. The Propeller Suit allows Mario and the rest to fly, while the Penguin Suit enables you to slide across ice and freeze enemies with ice balls.

New Super Mario Bros for Wii is a game that most Nintendo traditionalists have dreamed of, and craved for years, and with only 45 days in the UK to go before I can get my hands on it. I can’t wait!
