New Super Mario Bros. 360° is the sixth game in the New Super Mario Bros. series, for Nintendo NX, and is set to release just a little time after New Super Mario Bros. NX, in March 2016, and has many things in common with that game, but with more features.
Differences from New Super Mario Bros. NX
- You can look at the game from different corners, like 360° videos, that explains the name of the game. You can use this for example to look into pipes to see danger coming, or see in which pipe you need to go to finish the level.
- You can use anti-gravity, like in Mario Kart 8, to walk on the walls and ceilings. You can use this for example to go to secret parts of the level, or to collect starcoins which are to high to jump and get. To enable anti-gravity you have to use the AG-button, or go to a special-anti-gravity-zone.
