First footage from Super Mario Bros. Wii U

Filed under News

It’s not much, but below is some footage from Nintendo’s new Super Mario Bros. title for the Wii U. Back in April, it was announced that the title would be based on the New Super Mario Bros. Mii tech-demo which was shown at E3 2011.

The footage is ripped directly from the company’s Nintendo Direct presentation, with Global President Satoru Iwata speaking in the background about the console’s social functionality.

It’s interesting that Nintendo is giving us two side-scrolling Super Mario Bros. titles in such close proximity, between August’s upcoming 3DS release and this new Wii U title (which we assume is launching with the system). But that’s just how it goes!
