Super Mario 3D World: Nintendo introduces Bowser's Fury in a new trailer for Switch.
2021-01-18 02:48:54

Earlier today, Nintendo unveiled their latest trailer for Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. While Super Mario 3D World, a port of the 2013 Nintendo Wii U title, was showcased last year, Nintendo has now featured Bowser’s Fury mode. This new campaign seems to feature an open-world structure and all-new challenges for players while accompanied by Bowser Jr.

Bowser’s Fury seems to show a new, powerful form of Bowser. Fans of past Mario games know of Bowser’s ability to grow into a giant. That also extends to the Smash Bros. series where Bowser can become Giga Bowser. However, this new form is a darker, spikier, and more menacing form of Bowser. Not to mention it’s not often you hear a symphonic metal track playing in a Mario game.

The Bowser’s Fury campaign also features new goals such as collecting Cat icon medals, enemies like Cat Piranha Plants, and even features Bowser Jr’s Magic Paintbrush from Super Mario Sunshine return.

What makes Super Mario 3D World charming?

Super Mario 3D World spawned from its 3DS predecessor, Super Mario 3D Land, while making a number of improvements to the formula. It takes the 4-player co-op of New Super Mario Bros., adds Peach as a playable character, and is designed by the team behind the Super Mario Galaxy titles. Peach’s addition marks the first time she’s been playable in a mainline Mario title since Super Mario Bros. 2.

Another reference to Super Mario Bros. 2.

The stage design in 3D World is nothing short of perfect. There’s a stage dedicated to Super Mario Kart, a snow stage where you can wear a Goomba’s Shoe variant with skates, and even explore a Boo Mansion with a haunting filter. Every stage in the game caters to 1 to 4 players without sacrificing mobility, pacing, or design choices that could compromise the enjoyment based on the player count.

The lush visuals, stellar level design, and enemy variety, awesome soundtrack, boss battles, and powerups offer some of the single best gameplay in a Nintendo title to date. The multiple suits, including Tanooki, Cat, Boomerang, and even Gold Cat, bring back the days of hunting down suits in Super Mario Bros. 3!

The release of this software on Nintendo’s failed Wii U console does not do the software justice. As with past Wii U hits before it, this amazing title finally finds its way home on Nintendo’s Switch. Every attention to detail, from the controls to the secrets, were polished with the finest care and made the game enjoyable from start to finish and beyond.

With that being said, I would daresay that it was the best game on the console. As such, this upcoming release should be missed by absolutely no one. If you were a fan of Super Mario Galaxy, I cannot stress this enough: You will absolutely adore 3D World.

I assure you the soundtrack is just as good as in the Galaxy titles.

Release Date

Super Mario 3D World comes to Nintendo Switch on February 12, 2021. You can preorder the title from retailers as well as the Nintendo eShop. Nintendo is also releasing a specially themed Mario edition Switch releasing on the same day.
