The new Super Mario battle-royale game is out now for Nintendo Switch Online members. The Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary celebrations continue apace with the release today of Super Mario Bros. 35 on Nintendo Switch.\u00a0The game is based on the 1985 NES classic but adds a battle-royale gameplay twist similar in format to Tetris 99. The game sees 35 players compete online across classic Mario courses, beginning with the iconic World 1-1. The platforming gameplay comes as naturally as breathing, but this time, defeated Koopa Troopers and Goombas are sent over to other players\u2019 courses to disrupt their progress. You\u2019re also up against the clock which counts down from 35 seconds and has to be topped up by stomping on enemies. The fun continues until there\u2019s one Mario left standing. It\u2019s a simple concept, and in our brief time with the game, a well-executed one. Matches are chaotic and pleasingly clumsy with familiar levels made significantly more challenging. The game is also exquisitely produced with a user interface that echoes Super Mario Maker. Here\u2019s the launch trailer. https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v0_YwN8uRQac Super Mario Bros 35 is free to download and play for Nintendo Switch Online members at no additional cost. Weirdly \u2013 and just like the recently released Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection \u2013 the game is only available until March 31, 2021.
