Minus opportunities for lapine custody, New Super Mario Bros. U also features 'Boost Mode' as revealed at E3, the return of 'Coin Battle' from its Wii predecessor, and 'Challenge Mode.' Coin Battle is as it sounds, an up-to-four-player showdown to see who can collect the most coins across unique courses. It's compatible with Boost Mode, meaning one GamePad-wielding player can place blocks to help or hinder as he or she pleases. Challenge Mode is similarly self-descriptive, with tasks set in four categories: Time Attack, Coin Collection, 1-Up Rally, and Special. It's also compatible with Boost Mode.
