The lights are on
New Super Mario Bros. U is a great game, but we can't stamp a score on it quite yet.
We played through the entire game, but the Wii U itself still needs an online update that will be ready for the system launch this Sunday. Until this update happens, any online functionality for New Super Mario Bros. U is simply not working. Nintendo could activate the update today, tomorrow, or Saturday. It's still up in the air. So until then we'll all just have to sit around and wait.
In the meantime, you should know that the offline parts of the game (which is probably 99 percent of it) are way awesome. You can also check out tons of Wii U and Mario content on our hub.

Well, as long as it's way awesome...
Good for you guys. Well done.
no surprise. .ot a fan of the wii u but mario never disapoints
Saw that coming. I was impressed with the game from the trailers they showed.
PUMPED that this is getting great reviews. It reminds me of SNES Mario which was amazing. I am sad that I'm still on the fence of getting a Wii U though. The reason I'm on the fence is because I just bought a house and I don't know if I want to bust out $450 on a system and games without first taking the time to save up for it. I will for SURE have one by March though as that's when the new Monster Hunter is supposed to come out, and nothing can keep me away from that game!
i wanna play this game
I'm wondering what online portions this game actually has? Did Nintendo actually reveal that? Still can't wait to play this on Sunday!
