Another popular Wii U game may be headed to the Switch.
New Super Mario Bros. U, the 2D Mario game that launched alongside the Wii U, and the final game in Nintendo’s modern revival of 2D Mario till date, may be headed to the Nintendo Switch. As rumors and speculation go, this one has actually been among the more common ones over the last year or so- however, now, writing for Comic Book, known Nintendo insider Liam Robertson is claiming that a port of the game is indeed headed to the Switch before this year’s end.
The port will also come with the expansion New Super Luigi U, and will include some new content as well- though Robertson doesn’t seem to have many details on what the latter might entail. Robertson claims that the internal title he has heard for the game seems to be New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, which is a bit of a mouthful, but would be in line with most other Wii U ports for the Switch. That said, he also does clarify that it’s not clear if the name is internal, or intended to be the final name.
As of right now, this is just a rumor- we don’t know whether or not it is even true. That said, maybe it can be one of those many unnamed Switch games that have been listed on Amazon UK– maybe a Nintendo Direct is coming.
