Nintendo recently revealed a brand new character in New Super Mario Bros U. Called “Nabbit”, he’s a purple rabbit that robs Toads of their power-ups, and you have to catch him in a level in order to get a “P-acorn”. This power-up is a new squirrel suit that allow you to fly through an entire level. A new gameplay video shows Mario chase (and capture!) Nabbit on a level in New Super Mario Bros U. For more, check out the latest batch of New Super Mario Bros U details.

    • iluvnintendo

      lol me too i thought he was on the world map and i thought u chased him through the world map

  • Mida

    Still waiting for the biggest 3D Mario game but this is still good for now. I still find it hard to top the galaxy series.

    • Elite

      I must be the only one who thinks Mario 64 tops those 2 games.

      • PACMAN

        Mario 64 was fun because of the castle. It’s just so fun unlocking different parts of the castle. There’s also a bunch of exploration in the castle. That game was great would not mind a sequel.

  • Tobbe

    Golden character

  • Shad79

    Dang nabbit!

    • Whirlwindyoshi

  • Little Gamer

    Like if U will get the Wii U and Super Mario Bros. U!!!

  • Mamuta

    Dat mole.

    • MujuraNoKamen

      And agreed, dat mole is awesome! With all the new powerups, features and modes this looks like a great NSMB, I may have to get this.

  • Nintenjoe

    Can’t wait for real reviews

    • Tobbe

      Will try it at gamex on sunday. Dont know if my 7y son or me 35y is the most exited 🙂

  • NintendoMan :D

    I feel like I’ve seen this video before on this exact same site. Can’t wait to nab nabbit!

  • TheUNation

    Somebody nab that Nabbit!!!!!

    • u mad bro FC: 0559-7101-5495

      As cheesey the name and character sounds, Nabbit is a great addition to the New Super Mario Bros. series and could be brought on to 3d Mario games aswell.

  • Bob Singh

    That was, AWESOME!

  • 0soul

    Im gona love this game.

  • Ryu No Hadouken

    if youre over 12 and are anticipating this game, slap yourself.

    • Nintedward

      you’re*. You stick to playing CoD bro, You and the rest of the worlds mature gamers. You bring shame to Ryu , Ken and most importantly Master Gouki . Yours sincerely Akuma…..

      • Ryu No Hadouken

        i loathe CoD…i’d rather play something more engaging like a JRPG or an action adventure title…im 34 and after playing numerous Mario titles over the years, they just suck really bad now……they’re like Madden, if you’ve played one, you’ve played them all

        • Nintedward

          That’s BS , lol. Mario galaxy 1 and 2 are like THE most refreshing games ever made. They take everything complacent about mario and throw it out the window.

          Mario galaxy 1 and 2 are the best games i’ve played this GEN along with Skyward sword and MGS4.

          NSMB are a little repetative but they’re still fun. And remember it’s just your opinion there is people like me who are more than Hyped to play The Nexr NSMB from EAD :).

          Once you’ve played one you have played them all applies to so many games it’s not funny.

          • Ryu No Hadouken

            ok, ok, im gonna buy it…im sure my son will want it anyway….i beat the first one, might as well beat this one too…lol….and no, ive never played a Galaxy game…sounds crazy, i know….but i will promise you this…i wll purchase them off the eshop from my Wii U and send you a screenshot when I do.

    • ssb4 3dsFC3007 8585 6950

      and how old are U? 8? and play CoD all day and scream in the headset and annoy people? oh yeah just because u play a shooter does not make u a gun expertise. Ur still a little kid.

    • LP

      Ryu you are SO mature and sophisticated…

    • NoPUNintendo

      Oh man thank you so much, now because of your wise words I shall cancel my pre order and go buy an Xbox360 and go play CoD all day and become a gun expert like all the other cool kids that haven’t grown up yet.


      I guess I am gonna slap myself silly, hahaha…

      Look I love COD, have everyone on Wii and have “OWNED” many over the years on them. I am in one of the best gamers on them and in one of the best clans ever the 4 Horsemen or 4H. I am a adult and love so-called hard-core FPS games and games like Bioshock, Gears of War, etc. Even other hard-core games like Madden, Assassin’s Creed, Uncharted, and Batman AC…

      That being said, I don’t think that any Mario game or the other Nintendo classic’s are baby games or really even just core-games. I consider any Nintendo classic game as a hard-core game, and I only consider core-games like Just Dance, Sing, Farmville, WiiSports, etc, and their is nothing wrong with them either. Games are meant to be played, and you should be entertained, and have fun playing them. I grow up on Nintendo and Mario games. They have always been pretty hard to beat/get everything, always have been fun and a true challenge, and always made me want to get the next one. They’re way to many games over my life that I CAN NOT say that about.


      • ssb4 3dsFC3007 8585 6950

        that was well said bro.

      • Ryu No Hadouken

        i had fun with Mario games when i was a kid(im 34 now)…i’ll agree with you on that, but i just feel like theyve lost their magic over the years…it smells and tastes like the same soup over and over, just re-heated.

        • Nintedward

          Mario galaxy 1 and 2 tasted NOTHING like marios old soup.

          Have you played Mario galaxy ? if so please try and find one bad thing to say about the game. Becuase there isn’t any it’s a masterpiece.

        • srpg2ishere

          That’s the point. When you were a KID. You obviously haven’t been staying with the gaming network lately have you? They’ve made alot of new better mario’s than previous ones ya know. You must be talking about where he has to go save peach and what not i totally understand but no one cares about that. We care about the GAMEPLAY. ALL of mario’s games could have different storylines but be worse than the one before. But it Isn’t. They bring out the next one with some of the elements of the old mario but make it BETTER. And that’s what mario is all about. And his new game is the entire reason alone why I am buying a Wii U.

          • Ryu No Hadouken

            ok! im gonna get the stupid game and enjoy it…lol…my son and I did spend a ton of hours trying our best to make each other die in NSMB(after we beat it).

  • NintendoLover

    This game looks AWESOME! With all the new modes that Nintendo is adding, I’m looking forward to New Super Mario Bros. U! GO NINTENDO!
    Wii U 16 DAYS LEFT!

  • Johny

    oh god…. i droll if i think of ALL the possibilities of a real 3d mario game on wii u :Q …cmon… SMG3 xD … we all know it would be mind blowing… (even ONLY looking at the graphics )

  • KalebTaylorX

    Why does it take so long for my comment to come through? Lol

    • The Island Of Misfit Toys

      It’s awful

  • Roedburn

    Can’t wait to play it!

  • corbin74

    Did he say “The first Mario game on a Nintendo console since N64” or is it just me?

    • Corky

      The first Mario game to LAUNCH with a Nintendo console since N64….

  • Draco Breach

    I’ve been interested in this game, wavering back and forth as to what launch window titles to get. Nintendo really is throwing in some interesting bonus modes. While I don’t care much for Nabbit’s reward, it’s still an interesting feature. I appreciate the challenge more than the P-Acorn.

    However, this video featured a challenge I am certainly interested in. That mole will really challenge you to complete a level with skill, patience, and some level of dedication.

    • NoPUNintendo

      It does make me curious what other secrets Nintendo holds in this game. Perhaps a super secret level hidden that can only be discovered after capturing Nabbit on every level.

      • Draco Breach

        Are you kidding? This is Nintendo :p

        They’re so tight-lipped you won’t know half the features until it’s out!


  • samuDC

    Nintendo should really make a 3D mario game with an open world (sandbox). That would be epic!

    • MetroidFAN

      Heck yeah I would love to see that too!

    • Linskarmo

      That would!

    • NoPUNintendo

      Kind of like Super Mario Sunshine?

    • Damiao

      I agree, that would be amazing!!

  • Linskarmo

    This game is even awesomer then I first anticipated. And that’s pretty awesome!

  • The90sGuy

    It looks good, but I’m not liking the idea of the same music for the desert & water themed worlds from NSMBW. I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a 3D DONKEY KONG for the Wii U well before another 3D MARIO.

    • Naterman

      Well new super Mario bros is its own series so to say. Just like the classics had same music only a bit re-edited, this is the same. Overall the levels really bring back memories from super Mario world which had the connected map and the baby yoshis. I think Nintendo really takes the fake with this game. The levels have to be similar, they have always been.

      • Naterman

        I meant to say “Nintendo takes the cake” not fake

  • iLikeWeYOU

    want the game *zombie mode* i want the game
    give me the game
    i want the game
    give me the game

  • nintendoododo

    that is like p wing from super mario 3

  • utar

    That sound he makes while flying 0:33 to 1:00 is super annoying.

  • Naterman

    This game blends ALL my fave classic 2D Mario games in one. I can’t wait. Only 15 more days

  • Calvinwars

    Wow that just spoiled the game for me. I didn’t know Princess Peacj was going to be saved…

  • Gurugamer

    Lol, love it! Honestly, I think this is a shot at Ubisoft and it’s Rabbidsland game. Nabitt (ubisoft) is trying to steal a little thunder and coin from the Big N, but Mario chases him down.

  • Gurugamer

    Stealing money from Nintendoland to be more specific. Just look at the Rabbidsland promotional E3 video and you can see Nintendo and Ubusoft has a friendly rivalry brewing. Also, on the Raymen Legends demo when playing as the Viking in that one level. You instinctly want to pounce on the enemies head, but the henchmen are carrying boards on their heads which prevent you from pouncing on them. Just a friendly shot at Mario just like Nabbit is a friendly shot at Ubisoft.

  • Elite

    So how does this unlimited flight item work. If you loose it you have to catch the purple bunny again?

  • bb

    Dadadada eh ahahah lalala da mario back
