Yet another great Wii U game finds a home on the Switch. Nintendo has released the 2-in-1 game pack Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury on Switch. Watch the new launch trailer above.
Super Mario 3D World originally launched on Wii U in 2013. Up to four players could play local simultaneous multiplayer, playing as Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Peach in a series of 2D and 3D levels that showcase Nintendo’s signature Mario level design and polish.
Bowser’s Fury is a new stand-alone sequel starring Mario and an unlikely ally, Bowser Jr. Bowser’s Fury takes place around Lake Lapcat, a region filled with cats and a new Giga Cat Mario transformation. Boswer Jr., meanwhile, is armed with a paintbrush to aid Mario.
“With the launch of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, we hope February is a delightful month for players everywhere as the Nintendo Switch library – and Mario himself! – continues to grow,” said Nick Chavez, Senior VP, Nintendo of America. “The addition of Bowser’s Fury will give this experience a long tail for players who want to continue their Giga-sized explorations with Mario and his rambunctious catalogue of friends and foes.”
Nintendo has also released a new Mario Red & Blue Edition Switch, modeled after Mario’s classic colors, for $299.99. New amiibo figures are also available that include special abilities when used in the new game. The Bowser Jr. amiibo triggers a shockwave, while Cat Mario includes an invincible White Cat form.
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury is rated E for Everyone.
