New Super Mario Bros. U is the fourth game bearing the New Super Mario Bros name, following New Super Mario Bros Wii and New Super Mario Bros 2. It will feature Baby Yoshis with distinctive abilities, an acorn power-up that turns you into a "Flying Squirrel" form, and the ability to play the game as your Mii. There is also a "Boost mode" utilized by the Wii U GamePad that will create platforms and assist in multiplayer sessions. Finally, there will be Miiverse integration, with various players' comments on levels or deaths coming up when appropriate.
