New Super Luigi Bros. U is the fourth-and-a-halfth installment in the New Super Mario Bros. series, released as DLC for New Super Mario Bros. U since, obviously, Nintendo didn't make enough money on this series yet. It was later released as a standalone game.

At least Nintendo is self-aware about their recycling of content this time around.

Hmmm...
To do:
  • The internal project name is RDash (R = the first part of NSMBU's internal project name. Dash represents the short timer in levels.)
  • Some levels have blank tiles that show positions of the sprite platforms. These may show early platform locations and may also exist in NSMBU.
  • Unused location 0 in 5-1?

Unused Graphics

Unused Graphics in Jyotyu Tilesets

New Super Luigi U uses the same jyotyu tilesets as New Super Mario Bros. U, therefore it has the same exact unused features hidden in them.

Early Luigi Figurehead

Hidden behind the Luigi figurehead at the beginning of 5-Airship ("All Aboard!") is a version rendered with different lighting. The early version includes much more pronounced shadows from the white boards, and has less light cast on Luigi's face overall.

Unused Level Features

Extra Columns

It doesn't get better than this.

Right behind the flagpole zone in Cake-Layer Desert-2 are two impossible-to-see columns.

Invisible Tiles

It really, really doesn't.

Left of the starting point in Cake-Layer Desert-5 is a row of solid, invisible tiles, which you cannot touch.

Cabana Hut

This might be the most interesting thing of all right here.

Behind the flagpole of Sparkling Waters-1 is an extra cabana hut, one which you, once again, cannot possibly see.

Blank Tile

Yes, we're scraping the barrel this much.

Soda Jungle-6, Area 2 has an Object 0, Tileset 0 tile far off the level zone (how far you can see on the screenshot). This tile... does nothing and is in fact only ever used to make blank tiles.

Blank Positioning Tiles

This one actually makes sense.

Soda Jungle-Castle has four instances of Object 0, Tileset 0 that the level designers apparently used to keep track of the size of each giant moving platform.

Another Row of Tiles

All of these levels were made by one person.

Similarly to Cake-Layer Desert-6, there's a row of solid invisible tiles left of the starting point in Meringue Clouds-2.

Platform Edge

Oh wow, huh.

Peach Castle-4, Area 2 has a couple tiles far off the zone.
