  3. New Super Mario Bros U physics

    After beating the last stage, a red block with the letter "M" on it appears at the beginning of every stage. Hitting it makes Luigi's movement physics the same as Mario's were in the New Super Mario Bros U. This does not affect Nabbit. Effect last until you exit the stage. No penalties occur when using the block.

    Beat the final stage. New Super Mario Bros U physics
