New Super Mario Bros. U multiplayer trailer is about partnership

Samit Sarkar (he/him) is Polygon’s deputy managing editor. He has more than 15 years of experience covering video games, movies, television, and technology.

New Super Mario Bros. U, the 2D Mario game that will launch alongside the Wii U, supports up to five users in multiplayer gameplay, and a new trailer shows off the co-op mode.

Mario, Luigi, and friends work together in the video, facilitating coin collection for each other and in some cases literally carrying partners to safety. The action look beautiful in high definition, and the levels themselves appear to be as inventive as ever — we just hope there's as much potential for trolling your co-op partners as there was in New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

New Super Mario Bros. U will be available in North America when the Wii U launches on Nov. 18. Check out our E3 preview here.
