QuickFacts

Critics Consensus: 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.

7/10

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

4.5/5 stars

“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.”

Chris Carter (Destructoid)

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.”
