New Super Mario Bros. U Is Reportedly Coming to Switch

It might feature brand new content, too.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze have shown that Nintendo is more than willing to flesh out Switch’s library with Wii U ports. And if a new report is to be believed, the next Wii U game to make the jump could be New Super Mario Bros.

U. Comic Book reports multiple sources, who are purportedly “linked with Nintendo,” have suggested New Super Mario Bros. U will be updated and re-released for Switch “as early as this year.”

According to the site’s sources, Nintendo plans to package the New Super Luigi U DLC with the Switch port.

While the DLC and base game were originally released separately — in 2013 and 2012, respectively — they were later sold together as part of the Nintendo Selects line of budget-priced Wii U games.Exit Theatre Mode

Some of Comic Book’s sources also indicated the Switch port will come with some type of all-new content packed in. If accurate, though, it’s not clear what form this new content would take. The site also reports the rumored port could be dubbed New Super Mario Bros.

U Deluxe. When Nintendo applied the same “Deluxe” moniker to Mario Kart 8’s Switch port, it added in new characters, items, vehicles, and even an entirely new mode. IGN has reached out to Nintendo for official comment and will update this story should they respond.
