New Super Mario Bros. DELTA is a video game released for the Wii U and 3DS. The game follows Mario, Luigi, Blue Toad, Yellow Toad, and two extras on an adventure to do their typical thing. However, this time, Bowser has a more sinister scheme that involves the kidnapping of the Mushroom Kingdom leaders


The game plays just like the other New Super Mario games with some alterations. For instance, collecting enough 3-D Stars (4 to be specific) the game's view turns to 3-D like Super Paper Mario, with the only difference is when you run out of power for the ability you don't die. Another alteration is that, like Super Mario Bros. 2, there is a health bar powered by power-ups. Other small changes are being able to survive after taking damage in Small form and a world map similar to Super Mario 3D World's


One day in the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Blue Toad, and Yellow Toad having a picnic. Suddenly, Bowser and the Koopalings drive in with the Koopa Klown Car and nab the princess. When the heroes try to retaliate, Bowser blasts them with his Koopa Nuke (just an elongated Koopa shell with wings). The bros then go through the 8 worlds. Eventually, in world 3, Wario and Waluigi show up and take your items. After catching them, you can play as them

After reaching world 8, Bowser has apparently kidnapped all the leaders of the kingdom. Luigi knocks Bowser off the castle, and the heroes try to save the princesses. However, before they can do so, Bowser jumps back up, and uses the power of all the power-ups to become Cluster-Bowser. After defeating Bowser, the princesses are set free, and order is restored to the Mushroom Kingdom
