New details on the Wii U Mario appeared in US retail mag Game Informer over the weekend, revealing among other things that the game will feature at least seven worlds.

Here are the new details, via NeoGAF:

  • Dozens of levels across one world map, like Super Mario World
  • map can be panned around and explored at any time
  • game features an auto-scrolling, Boost Rush mode for more of a challenge
  • multiple branching paths that let you pick which way to go
  • this is much more than the tradition level choosing, which usually gives you only two paths to choose from
  • mid-world fortresses guarded by Boom-Boom
  • end-level castles guarded by Koopalings
  • Game Informer spotted 7 worlds: Acorn Plains, Sparkling Waters (tropical), Frosted Glacier, Layer Cake Desert (complete with melting desserts), areas similar to Forest of Illusion and Sky World and a world surround by a tornado
