Super Mario U is a 3D collect-a-thon platformer and successor to the previous Mario 3D games, especially SM64 and it's remake by Inora for the Wii U in 2015. The story is similar to the other games, with notable enhancements such as Co-Op multiplayer and larger worlds, ala Banjo Kazooie. Reception has been TBA.
Bowser has been defeated once more, and in an explosion, his castle is destroyed and he is launched into space. There, he finds a Giga Grand Star, which he accidentally breaks due to his clumsiness. However, he keeps three Grand Stars, which he uses to take hold of Peach's Castle, Peach, and Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi. Looking for Luigi, Mario comes to Toad Town where he learns the news. After learning the basics, Mario headed towards Peach's Castle and began reclaiming the Power Stars and his friends.
Upon reclaiming two of the Grand Stars and collecting a number fo Power Stars and freeing his friends, Mario reaches the top floor, where a Cannon launches him into space. After a final battle, Bowser is defeated, and they return to the castle where they all eat cake. A post credits scene shows Bowser lost in space, and bumping into Tatanga, with them arguing about who's better.
In addition to three HUB worlds, Mario's Pad, Toad Town, and Peach's Castle, the game has 15 courses.
This world is where players start. Through a pipe, players enter Toad Town. Once 1 Power Star has been collected, players can play minigames with Toad here. Each character has two as they are unlocked, for a total of 8.
