Super Mario 3D World may have already released on the Wii U back in 2011, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth picking up for those who have already played it. Alongside a more noticeable new addition, Nintendo has made some refinements and introduced some new features to the game for its Nintendo Switch release on Feb. 12. So what’s new in Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury? Here’s what you need to know.
Easily the most obvious new addition in the package is the all-new adventure, Bowser’s Fury. This title sees Mario traveling to Lake Lapcat and teaming up with Bowser Jr. to try and get his dad out of a tantrum. To do so, you’ll be collecting Cat Shines from the various islands across the lake.
It’s the kind of Mario game we’ve never really seen before. The map is sprawling and each of the levels are contained within the overworld. In other words, there are no portals and load screens here.
With each island offering its own unique spin on the classic Mario platforming and a bunch of Cat Shines up for grabs for completing various different tasks, Bowser’s Fury is a veritable treat for Nintendo Switch owners.
That being said, it is on the short side if you’re looking to just beat the final boss. Completionists should enjoy the grind out to get all of the Cat Shines, though.
