In New Super Mario Bros. Bowser and Bowser Jr. have kidnapped Princess Peach again, and you guessed it - only Mario can save her. The game is full of classic enemies like Bowser, Koopas and Goombas, but there are also many new foes, big bosses and challenges for gamers to conquer. As in classic Mario titles, Mushrooms make Mario tiny or very large, and new items like the Blue Shell (which transforms Mario into a spinning shell that wipes out enemies) will keep gamers coming back for more.
Mario and Luigi can do all kinds of jump manoeuvres: increasingly high triple jumps, wall jumps and high bounces off enemies. Mario is also able to use power-ups like the aforementioned Mushrooms, Fire Flowers (to throw fireballs) and Starmen (to become invincible).
Two players can battle as Mario and Luigi for stars on specially designed levels over local wireless. In addition to the main game and the wireless two-player mode, players can also use the touch screen to play lots of mini-games, either in solo mode or over DS Local Area Network, with 1 to 4 players via DS Download Play.
