The super Mario Bros. U is much like other Super Mario Bros titles sharing aspects such as multiplayer action, unlocking different levels, mini-boss castles and flying ships. It is however good to see that Mario has catch up with technology hence introduction of a high-definition game. This game has impressive visuals accompanied by gorgeous 2.5D (near-three-dimensionality) backgrounds compared to the previous titles.

Another impressive feature that this install brings to the table is the gamepad’s capability to bring another ‘builder’ player who has powers to control up to 4 floating boxes that can either be used to assault or aid other Wii mate players.

Mario Bros. U has added extra platforms such as Boost Mode which lets the gamepad Wii player mess with enemies and can unlock a feature that allows them to vanquish an enemy with just a flick of the stylus.

The game has widely received positive reviews from players and critics such as GamesMaster which said that the game is a good excuse for families to gather around the TV, IGN and Joystiq. Many players have praised the difficulty level of this game which is a major challenge compared to some installs where a player could complete the levels without ‘dying’. Although the New super Mario Bros. U is not a ground breaking release, it is beautifully presented in HD, block building is more fun while using a touchscreen and the multiplayer action is addictive and frantic at the same time.

and you can have a look at the items which are going under the hammer on April 24th. A Virtual Boy in its stand-up store display is one of the highlights, but there’s also an N64 unit, and several Nintendo-related arcade classics, like Donkey Kong and Super Mario Bros. Plenty of other machines of interest there, too – and the starting prices are absurdly low considering some of these are genuine collector’s items.

Expect the prices to rise and rise as wealthy gamers start upping the ante, but for now, $100-$150 is the price for Gunpei Yokoi’s legendary cornea-scorcher – should you fancy giving yourself a permanent headache, that’s all the Virtual Boy will cost you. Bargain!
