Nintendo has released more footage from the expanded Switch version of Super Mario 3D World.

The new trailer for Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury shows action from game’s brand new levels and the overworld. It’s spectacular stuff, with a distinct Super Mario Odyssey feel evident throughout. The gargantuan-sized Bowser also looks like a formidable foe.

Take a look.

In addition to the new Bowser’s Fury content, the updated game also includes online multiplayer support for the first time. Compared to last year’s Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection, this looks like a significant upgrade.

To accompany the game’s release on February 12, Nintendo is also issuing a new Mario-themed Nintendo Switch console. The colour scheme reflects Mario’s red and blue attire and marks the first time that a Switch system has been released in a new colour.

The console doesn’t include a copy of the game, unfortunately, but it does come bundled with an exclusive case and screen protector. The previously announced Cat Mario and Cat Peach amiibo figures will also be released on the same day.

Speaking about the lineup, Dom Gross, general manager at Nintendo of Canada, says:

“We hope players enjoy pouncing their way through two great Mario adventures in Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, with lots of feline fun to be had whether playing solo or with family and friends. Along with the Nintendo Switch – Mario Red & Blue Edition system, we’re delighted to offer these new products that mark more than 35 years of Super Mario adventures.”

And there’s more. Nintendo also announced a new special event for Super Mario Bros. 35. From January 18 to 25, players can work together to defeat 3.5 million Bowsers. Players who defeat at least one Bowser during the event will be eligible to receive 350 My Nintendo Platinum Points.

Wahoo!
