Super Mario 3D World is the latest in the long line of releases from Nintendo’s previous console Wii U. Like most in that line, it comes as a kind of Director’s Cut: a little extra polished and a little extra content, quite simply. For starters, the chaotic 4-player mode is now not just for home parties: the whole Super Mario 3D World will be playable with friends (and enemies…) online.
The big news, though, is Bowser’s Fury. In this game mode, the camera behaves much more like in Super Mario Odyssey. You play in your own world, separate from the main game and must curb King Koopa’s anger in what can only be described as Super Mario meets Dragonball. Watch the trailer in the header and you will understand what we mean (by the way, that background music is a real banger; where can I find the soundtrack !?).
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury released on February 12, the same day as a new, fresh colorful release of the Nintendo Switch: Mario Red & Blue Edition. It comes with both a dust cover and a bag, unlike the base models so far. Games and consoles are also accompanied by the release of two new amiibo figurines: Cat Mario and Cat Peach. These will offer some as yet unspecified improvements to the game along with previously released Bowser and Bowser Jr. amiibo.
Neither console nor amiibos have appeared at many retailers yet, but we agree the eyes Open. Would you look at that, Web halls, Games & stuff and CDON (and certainly more) are a little faster than the price comparison sites.
