A new set of images circulating on the internet have shed more light on Nintendo’s forthcoming New Super Mario Bros title for the Wii U.
Nintendo has already offered up the basics on its website, including the fact that players can use the GamePad controller to interact with and manipulate enemies and objects in real time.
There will also be a new Boost Mode that allows an additional player to join in on the action on the multiplayer game. So what other features are currently circulating on the rumour mill?
New Super Mario Bros U: The latest
According to the latest round of speculation, gamers will get the chance to test their metal in seven worlds: Acorn Plains, Sparkling Waters (tropical), Frosted Glacier, Layer Cake Desert (complete with melting desserts).
This is alongside areas similar to the Forest of Illusion and Sky World and a world that appears to be surrounded by a tornado.
The wave of info on the new title also gives players an insight into the opponents they will face at different stages of the game.
The mid-world fortresses are set to be guarded by Boom-Boom, while the end-level castles will be guarded by Koopalings.
New Super Mario Bros U: Control in players’ hands
As with Super Mario World, players are also set to get the chance to explore dozens of levels across one world map at their own pace, panning around the map to get a view of what’s on offer.
Gamers will also be able to choose from multiple branching paths, as opposed to the two paths traditionally on offer.
Boost Rush Mode will give players the chance to go through pre-selected packs of levels, with a limited amount of lives given at the start of each pack.
A worldwide release date for the game is expected on December 30, though Nintendo has confirmed that it will launch with the Wii U in Japan on December 8.
