What's that you say? You'd like a few more Wii U ports to beef up your Switch collection? Well then here's some good news for you: New Super Mario Bros U is coming to Switch next year, on January 11th.

New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe, as it will be known, includes both the (actually very enjoyable) base game - which enables up to four players to simultaneously indulge in some classic side-scrolling action - plus its rock-hard DLC follow-up, New Super Luigi U.

The Switch version of New Super Mario Bros U will also bring some exclusive additions, including two new characters in the form of Nabbit and Toadette. Toadette can transform into Peachette by grabbing a Super Crown, while Nabbit doesn't take damage at all.
