Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury

Critics Consensus (Play It)

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury offer two distinct, yet familiar, Mario experiences that demonstrate why Mario is an ageless franchise. Super Mario 3D World is pure, unadulterated joy, successfully bringing an under-appreciated gem forward from the Wii U era. Meanwhile, Bowser’s Fury is an ambitious experimental expansion, offering a scaled-down but surprisingly robust mini 3D Mario game.

Game Info

Join Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Toad on a quest to save the Sprixie Kingdom in Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, pouncing onto Nintendo Switch! Bowser’s kidnapped the Sprixie Princess, and it’s up to our heroes to rescue her! Clamber over walls and cat-scratch your enemies using the Super Bell, clone yourself with the Double Cherry or pop the Cannon Box on your head and fire off projectiles at your foes. This enhanced version of Super Mario 3D World also comes with gameplay improvements, like increased running speed for all characters and the ability to climb higher while using the Super Bell. You can even play using gyro controls! As well as local co-op play with up to three friends, players can now enjoy online multiplayer mayhem!

“Two solid platformers in one; neither of which approaches the franchise’s most dizzying heights.”

“Quirky, creative, and constant good fun, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury blends Mario gameplay old and new with great success, creating a title that feels worthy of his 35th birthday celebrations.”

10/10

“To be clear, I’d still wholly recommend this version of 3D World even without Bowser’s Fury. The tweaks are small overall, and Bowser’s Fury isn’t going to sate the most hardcore of Mario fans looking for a brand new game, but the package as a whole is magical. If you were one of the many who missed out on this Wii U classic, fix that.”
