A preview

"New Super Toads U" is a dlc for New Super Mario Bros. U on the Wii U. It will be released in Summer 2013 in Europe Japan and Australia, and in early Winter 2013 for America. It remains a multiplayer sidescroller.


The gameplay is very similar to NSMBU. The objectives have stayed the same, run across the level until you reach the flag at the end of the level. The game can be played either with the Wiimotes or the Pro Controller for TV play, or the Gamepad can be used for off TV play. As NSMBU did, this game also uses the Wii U Gamepad to place blocks. Much like Rayman Legends, the gamepad user can tickle enemies, to stop them from being able to attack the players until the tickling has stopped; unfortunately, it doesn't work on bosses. However, unlike NSMBU, if enough of the blocks are used by the players, the Gamepad user can earn points, which will level the gamepad up.

Gamepad Levels

For every 5 gamepad blocks a player steps on, the Gamepad earns one skill point. Skill points then level up the Gamepad.

  • Level 2: 15 points
  • Level 3: 25 points
  • Level 4: 50 points
  • Level 5: 100 points
  • Level 6: 123 points
  • Level 7: 200 points
  • Level 8: 300 points
  • Level 9: 400 points
  • Level 10: 500 points
