: : : : : Super Mario 3D World

Background

This isn't just the first 3D Multiplayer Super Mario title on the Wii U. It's the first 3D Multiplayer Super Mario title on any platform!

Gameplay

Bowser is at it again with his son and the Koopalings, but this time things are much different: he didn't kidnap Princess Peach! Rather, Bowser went and kidnapped a number of Sprixies, a species of fairy creatures that are greenish in appearance. Mario and friends pursue Bowser through a strange pipe to the Sprixie Kingdom to rescue the Sprixies and once again stop Bowser's plot!

Features

  • For the first time since Super Mario Bros. 2, play as Toad or Princess Peach!
  • Each character has their own styles and unique abilities. For example, Princess Peach can glide in the air for a short time, while Luigi has his trademark jump that's higher than Mario's but slower.
  • Pick up a Super Bell to pick up a Cat Suit. This is a new power-up that allows the player to scale walls, run faster and launch unique attacks.
  • New puzzle elements are added to make the gameplay even more unique, including transparent pipes and vertical conveyor belts!
  • Use the touch screen on the Wii U's Game Pad to search for secrets, such as hidden blocks, and to temporarily freeze your enemies in their tracks!
  • For up to 4 Players simultaneously.

Hardware

  • 1 Wii U Game Disc
