Nintendo today held a surprise Direct presentation specifically focusing on the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros., and with it came a ton of announcements. One of the games announced today is Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury. The game is an enhanced version of Super Mario 3D World, which originally released on the Wii U.
Super Mario 3D World is a multiplayer 3D platformer, and the first of its kind for Mario, allowing up to four players to traverse the campaign together. With the new Switch release, in addition to local multiplayer, players will be able to team up online to play through the game. Outside of Super Mario Maker, mainline series games in the Mario franchise have never featured online cooperative play.
This version also includes additional content, as indicated by the Bowser's Fury part of the name. Nintendo didn't share much in the way of details about this new content, but it did show Cat Mario in a stormy scenery in front of a Bowser-shaped structure.
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury is coming to the Nintendo Switch on February 12, 2021, and digital preorders are live on the Nintendo eShop right now.
