New Super Mario Bros. is a side-scrolling platform video game published and developed by Nintendo for the Nintendo Wii. It is the first original side-scrolling platform game starring Mario since 'New Super Mario Bros.' on Nintendo DS and the first game to be part of the main Mario series since Super Mario Galaxy on the Wii.

New Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo Wii features huge vivid 2D worlds inspired by those from the classic Mario adventures, but combined with beautifully rendered 3D characters which almost seem to jump out of the screen. Each world has a different theme and features multiple levels, which must be completed before progressing to the next one. Players must also master each world's mini fortress and beat a boss character before they can progress onto the next world. Only after defeating all of the bosses will a character be ready to take on the ultimate challenge of Bowser himself.

New Super Mario Bros. offers a combination of cooperation and competition. Players can pick each other up to save them from danger or toss them into it. Mario, Luigi and two Toads are all playable characters, while many others from the Mushroom Kingdom make appearances throughout the game. Players can even ride different Yoshi characters and use their tongues to swallow enemies – or their fellow players. In some areas, players use the motion abilities of the Wii Remote controller. The first player to reach a seesaw might make it tilt to help his or her character reach a higher platform – and then tilt it incorrectly just to mess with other players.

New items for New Super Mario Bros. include the propeller suit, which will shoot players high into the sky with just a shake of the Wii Remote and Mario’s new ability to transform into Penguin Mario. At the end of each stage during the simultaneous multiplayer mode, players are ranked based on their score, the coins collected and the number of enemies defeated.

New Super Mario Bros.’s graphics are excellent, very vibrant and colorful too. The music is very good and very realistic. Various worlds and diverse level designs make it attractive.
