An updated version of Wii U’s Super Mario 3D World is releasing on the Nintendo Switch early next year and will be re-labeled to Super Mario World 3D + Bowser’s Fury.
The announced title will come as part of Super Mario Bros. series’ 35th anniversary and comes alongside the following titles:
- Super Mario Bros. 35
- Super Mario 3D All-Stars
- Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit
- Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros.
Still, several months away to getting a launch (Feb. 12, 2021), Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury is already up for preorders.
Remastered and expanded
Essentially an updated port of the 2013 Wii U title, the game sees an expansion via the “Bowser’s Fury” add-on. It is yet unsure what the expanded content will consist of. But if the trailer is to draw an idea from, it is likely addition of new levels into the game, that and the possibility of seeing new modes drawing from the expansion.
A game of high acclaim, critics have praised the original Super Mario 3D World for its fun and dynamic gameplay. Elements that are both experienced in the game’s single-player campaign or online co-op.
Bringing the same amusing and magical experience to Switch users, the new version will make use of Nintendo Switch Online subscription. This is intended for players who are keen on online cooperative gameplay. Alternatively, players can also tag friends along in order to play local co-op with up to three other individuals.
The game will also see the simultaneous release of two Amiibo figures. Particularly, Cat Peach and Cat Mario. Literally, Amiibo figures involving Mario and Peach in their own respective cat outfit. Both of which will make a great addition to Amiibo figurine enthusiasts.
As an “Amiibo” figure, both Cat Peach and Cat Mario will likely serve a special purpose with the game. A good guess tells of exclusive contents, similar to how other Amiibo figures play a special role in the game they hail from, if not an instant transformation.
Fans of the Super Mario franchise who are keen on keeping their collection up-to-date could choose to buy a physical copy at either Amazon or BestBuy. Alternatively, those who do not mind going digital can choose to avail of the same game at the eShop. The game will come at a price tag of $60.
Coincidentally, both Cat Peach and Cat Mario will see a launch at $16 apiece.
