Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury

This Friday, fans of the most famous plumber in the history of video games will have a perfect plan to experience a different Valentine or enjoy with their friends wherever they are, because it comes to Nintendo Switch Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, a 3D Mario adventure in which, for the first time, it can be enjoyed not only in local multiplayer but also online. Choose your character based on their abilities and prepare to travel through the fairy kingdom and face the wrath of Bowser.

35 years of life Super Mario go a long way, and Super Mario 3D World is an adventure that brings together all the magic of the license in a single game and contains many references and nods to the great titles in the history of the plumber. But in addition, the new Bowser’s Fury mode presents a second, unpublished adventure, in which we will unfold in a fascinating open world in which Mario will have to assume a new and gigantic feline form to face a Bowser of colossal proportions that is out of character. control.

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury Trailer – The Force of Furious Bowser! (Nintendo Switch) contains all the information about the new threat looming over Mario.

But before we dive into the details of the challenge, let’s get down to the game modes. Will we decide to play alone and prove ourselves, or will we seek the best allies to join forces and, incidentally, maximize the fun? It can be a perfect plan to enjoy as a couple (and celebrate Valentine’s Day doing what we like the most) or as a family, because up to 4 players can play Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury on the same console or with the local game mode , as always. But the big news is that, for the first time, it will also be able to be played online, allowing several friends to agree to connect and enjoy the adventure together, wherever they are.

And how it works?

First of all is to choose the characters and pay close attention to their different abilities. Mario is the most balanced character, while Luigi can jump the highest, Princess Peach can float in the air and Toad is the fastest on the ground. Once chosen, they can explore every nook and cranny of the fairy kingdom and play as a team to reach the pennant … or compete to see who gets the most points and wins a sparkling crown.

These options make it an ideal game for both the most competitive and for those families or friends in which there is someone who wants to start in video games in a fun way and without getting frustrated. For example, they will be able to choose characters with mechanics that are easier for them until they become familiar with the game and receive the help of the most experienced to overcome a level together.

All this makes it a perfect first Mario game for many, but those who have accompanied the plumber throughout its 35-year history will enjoy it just as well, and in Super Mario 3D World fans will find such a number of references and winks throughout the levels that will practically be like playing all Mario games in one.

The creators of Super Mario 3D World aimed for players to return to enjoy the king of platforms in the same way they did in Super Mario Bros. (NES, 1985). Or that they get excited when choosing your favorite character to play, as they did for the first time in Super Mario Bros. 2 (NES, 1988), and the fondness for Mario costumes, which was first seen in Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES, 1988). And, in case they were missed, they will also meet the multitude of enemies they encountered in Super Mario World (SNES, 1990).

Some of the levels in Super Mario 3D World will be reminiscent of the tracks from Super Mario Kart (SNES, 1990). Speaking of speed, you will run into levels that must be overcome in the shortest time possible, specifically, 100 seconds, as happened in New Super Luigi U. (Wii U, 2013) Nostalgic people cannot help but remember Super Mario 64 (Nintendo 64 , 1996), after all, that was the first Mario in three dimensions. With SUPER MARIO 3D WORLD they will once again play the giant Mario that first appeared in New Super Mario Bros. (Nintendo DS, 2006), and they will meet again with Estela, the friend of the stars they met in Super Mario Galaxy (Wii, 2007 ).

The multiplayer experience that they could try in New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Wii, 2009), will also be present in Super Mario 3D World. The level design will be very reminiscent of SUPER MARIO 3D LAND (Nintendo 3DS, 2011) and will revive the gold rush of New Super Mario Bros. 2 (Nintendo 3DS, 2012). And all in HD, so that we can see the Mario with the best face, as we have done since New Super Mario Bros. U (Wii U, 2012).

And many more…

And aside from the references, what’s new in Super Mario 3D World? In this title, Mario has no choice but to climb and for this he has an infallible weapon, the new feline Mario costume. Additionally, the catalog of items (and special skills) continues to grow. Along with the classics Mario Tanuki and Mario Boomerang (which by the way, is a tribute to the Mario Hammer from Super Mario Bros. 3), there are new abilities: a “super hood” will turn Mario into a cat that scratches and climbs, a box cannon On the head it will allow you to launch projectiles, and if you pick up duplicates you will get a clone that is the most practical in double attacks.

In addition, Bowser’s Fury mode brings with it an unprecedented adventure that will make the plumber sweat a bit. A huge Bowser unleashes his wrath and will put Mario on the ropes until he manages to assume a new and gigantic feline form to face him.

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, the first 3D Mario adventure that can be played online, is coming to Nintendo Switch on February 12.
