New Super Mario Bros. Wii is the second game in the New Super Mario Bros. series and a platforming game in the Mario series and the first Mario side-scrolling platform game for a home console since Super Mario World for the SNES and was released for the Wii. The spin jump and riding Yoshi are returning features from Super Mario World. It is the follow-up New Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo DS. Four individual players can play together as Mario, Luigi, Yellow Toad, and Blue Toad.


Mario and his friends are celebrating Princess Peach's birthday when a huge cake arrives. The Koopalings and Bowser Jr. pop out and throw the cake on top of Peach, "imprisoning" her. They carry Peach to their Airship fortress, while Mario, Luigi, and two other Toads pursue. The other Toads from the castle use a cannon to blast the Propeller Suit and Penguin Suit for Mario and the others.

After defeating all the Koopalings, Kamek and Bowser Jr, the team gets to Bowser's castle. When they find Bowser, one of them jumps on a button and sends him falling down to the lava below. Mario, Luigi and the Toads see Princess Peach in the cage, but she turns out to be Kamek wearing Peach's dress. Kamek then flies out of the cage and casts a magical spell that makes Bowser come back ten times larger than his normal size,

giving chase. The four-run away from Bowser until they get to a large button below Princess Peach. One of them pushes the button and the giant Bowser falls into the lava again. Peach is then released from her cage.

Mario and Peach walk out of Bowser's castle and see Luigi, Blue Toad and Yellow Toad coming down in hot air balloons. Luigi walks out of his balloon and lets Mario and Peach in, but the balloon goes up without Luigi, so the Toads offer him a ride in their balloon. After the credits, Bowser Jr. and the Koopalings are all trying to push regular sized Bowser back up. They succeed, but by causing a huge thud, and Bowser's castle falls on all of them.


The gameplay is primarily similar to that of the original New Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo DS, with several key changes, including that of multiplayer gameplay.


Up to four players can play a level together. If players die in the game, they are suspended from gameplay until another player pops a bubble that their fellow character is suspended in. Players can pick up other players and throw them, a technique that can be implemented both cooperatively and competitively. If all the players are in a bubble at the same time, they will return to the map screen.


Three additional power-ups have been added to the Mario Bros. arsenal. The Ice Flower from Super Mario Galaxy allows characters to freeze enemies as does the new Penguin Suit. The Propeller Suit allows Mario and others to perform spinning jumps and fly. Yoshis have also been added into the game and serve generally the same purpose as they did in Super Mario World.

Super Guide

A Super Guide, which allows players to skip sections of the game they can't beat, has been added to the game to make it easier. Activating the super guide will show a computer playing as Luigi how to beat the level with the option of trying again. Coins or points collected by Luigi will not count. The guide can be used only after the player has died eight times.

Mushroom Houses

Main article: Mushroom House
Mushroom Houses are houses that you can enter to either get a Power-Up, 1-Up(s), or a Star. They are colored red, green, and yellow, respectively.


In each world, a cannon is available somewhere on the map. The cannon's purpose is for the player to get in the cannon and let the cannon shoot the player to a different world. This makes it easier to get through the game but may make it harder for the player. For example, the cannon in World 1 shoots you to World 5. Both have a huge level difference, whereas World 1 is easy, and World 5 is more advanced. Because of this, it may be hard for the player to suddenly go from very easy courses to way more advanced courses.

Also, because your character is shot to World 5, the Worlds in between are still locked and cannot be unlocked unless the player finishes Worlds 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Cannons can be unlocked by finding a secret goal in certain courses that are close to the cannon. When finding the secret goal, the goal will have a black castle instead of a brown one. The flagpole will also have a red flag with Bowser instead of a black one and Mario will say something different from what he mostly says when he passes a normal goal (black with a white Bowser).


New Super Mario Bros. Wii was first released in Australia on 12 November 2009. The game was then released in North America on November 15, 2009, Europe on November 20, 2009, and in Japan on December 3, 2009.
