Nintendo just revealed that Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury is coming to the Nintendo Switch. The announcement was part of a Mario-focused Nintendo Direct as part of the character’s 35th year anniversary.
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury is an improved version of Super Mario 3D World which was initially launched for the Wii U. It features coop play for both local multiplayer and online in an array of various levels.
For people who aren’t familiar with the original game, players need to work together with their friends and compete for a crown. The game was also the first 3D game to feature multiplayer gameplay. Players can choose Mario, Luigi, Toad, or Princess Peach.
The game also introduced the cat transformation that allowed players to run on both hands and feet, pounce on rivals, attack in the middle of the air, and even climb up walls.
