New Super Mario Bros. U – Star Coins Walkthrough and Guide

Follow our New Super Mario Bros. U Star Coins guide and walkthrough as we reveal every hidden Star Coin in each of the nine worlds.

Coming in as a Nintendo Wii U launch title, New Super Mario Bros. U was released on November 18, 2012. Just a mere three months after the previous installment on the 3DS! You had the expected four-player multiplayer mode, the Boost Mode where players tapped blocks into the level using the GamePad, a seamless world map, and new power-ups like the Super Acorn and three Baby Yoshis with light, fight, and bubble abilities. Kind of adorable!

Our New Super Mario Bros. U Star Coins guide is fairly simple. Use the nifty table below to jump to each world, otherwise find the specific level in the list underneath.

This guide also works as a New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe walkthrough too since they’re really the same game.
