Super Mario Subcon is a 2D action sidescrollier in the Super Mario series, developed and published by Nintendo, and set for release in 2015 for the Wii U. It's heavily based on Super Mario Bros 2, carrying over gameplay elements, characters, and environments from it.
Mario, Luigi, and Toad are at Princess Peach's castle celebrating the Door of Dreams Festival. The festival happens every 100 years and causes an ancient door leading to Subcon to open. As soon as the door opens, Wart jumps out and grabs Toadsworth. Wart then takes Toadworth into Subcon hoping to use him as part of an evil plot. Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Princess Peach follow Wart into the door to save Toadsworth. While the door remains open, Bowser and the Koopa troop break into the castle (hoping to kidnap Peach as always). They discover that the castle is empty, and so Bowser decides to enter the door to find Princess Peach. Meanwhile, Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Princess Peach chase Wart throughout 6 worlds while Bowser and the Koopa troop follow them. Only when they arrive in the Slumber Skies do they discover that Bowser was following them the whole time. Bowser is then defeated and falls to the ground. Mario then remembers that they have to save Toadsworth and so they rush to Wart's Palace. It turns out that Wart kidnapped Toadsworth because an inhabitant of the Mushroom World had to be thrown into the Volcano of Dreams, making the one who does the sacrifice king of Subcon. Luckily, Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Princess Peach stop Wart just in time. Toadsworth is taken back to the castle and Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Princess Peach celebrate the last few minutes of the festivall.
The gameplay in Super Mario Subcon is just like in Super Mario Bros 2. Enemies have to have something thrown at them or be thrown themselves. Jumping on an enemy will simply cause you to ride it. Each level is made like any normal Super Mario level. At the very end (unlike Super Mario Bros 2) there is no boss but instead a flagpole. At the very last level of each world is a boss found along with a Hawkmouth gate leading to the next world.
Mario plays as he does in most Super Mario games including the gameplay features presented in Super Mario Bros 2. Like all other characters, Mario now has the ability to pick up objects and enemies like in Super Mario Bros 2. No other special features are presented in Mario's gameplay.
Luigi jumps higher than all other characters. His flaw is sliding when stopping. Cliff levels may be risky when playing as Luigi, yet hidden areas are simply meant for him.
Blue Toad runs faster than all other characters and is great for levels with a short time. His flaw, however, is jumping lower than all other characters.
|Princess Peach has the ability to stay in the air for a short time after jumping. Her strength is very low though, causing anything she tosses to come to the ground sooner.|
|A Mushroom allows you to grow back to your Super form after being hit by an enemy or harmful object.|
|A 1-UP Mushroom allows you to gain a life.|
|A Starman makes you invincible (unless squished or drowned) for a short amount of time.|
|A Fire Flower allows you to shoot fireballs (3 at a time).|
|A Cloud Flower allows you to create 3 cloud platforms.|
|A Boomerang Flower allows you to toss a boomerang that acts like a fireball but doesn't hit the ground and comes back to you.|
|A Super Leaf allows you to descend slower, hit things with your tail, and fly after gaining enough speed.|
|A Blue Shell allows you to get in the shell when crouching and use it to slide through a level (hitting enemies but bouncing of walls) when running and crouching.|
|A P-Wing Box allows you to fly through the whole level. To make it appear, you need to loose 20 levels in one level.|

|Tweeters bounce along the ground in straight lines and have to have something thrown at them or be thrown themselves.|
