New Super Mario Brothers U Deluxe

This game is truly one of the best games to play as a couple. In fact, it’s two games in one, for double the fun!

All a player needs is one Joy-Con controller, so two people can team up right out of the box! Tackle 164 platforming courses in the two main game modes and enjoy extra replayability with three additional game modes in which you can also play as a Mii character: Challenges, Boost Rush, and Coin Battle!
