Nintendo announced at E3 today that the Mario vs. Donkey Kong puzzle series is coming to the Wii U next year. It will take full advantage of the touch screen on the GamePad and feature a “near-limitless puzzle-creation mode.” Check out the video below to see the game in action.


  • Help Minis – toy versions of Nintendo characters – reach a goal by using the touch screen on the Wii U GamePad controller to manipulate enemies and the environment.
  • Use wits and reflexes to complete more than 80 progressively challenging puzzles.
  • Create puzzles using the refined level-creation mode. These levels can be shared with and played by other people in the Miiverse community. People will be able to “Yeah” puzzles so the community can see which ones are the most creative and challenging.
  • Players can earn stars to unlock new level-creation tools, or use those stars to “tip” other players online to encourage them to create more fantastic levels. It’s a way for players to recognize and promote their favorite level creators.
