    Sources connected to Nintendo of Europe have told Comic Book that Nintendo is working on a Nintendo Switch port of the Wii U game, New Super Mario Bros. U. The same sources had previously leaked Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle before it was announced. 

    The Switch port of New Super Mario Bros. U will include the New Super Luigi U add-on, which was released in 2013 and had a standalone retail release. The two games were later sold together as a Nintendo Selects title. 

    The sources hinted that the Switch port will include new content. 

    This should be treated as a rumor until confirmed by Nintendo.
