Super Mario 3D World is the latest Wii U release to make its pilgrimage to the Nintendo Switch, however, this time around Nintendo has packaged in a brand new 3D Mario game called Bowser’s Fury. This spin-off features an unlikely partnership between Mario and Bowser Jr. who must both save Lake Lapcat from the destruction of an awoken Fury Bowser.
Not only does the game feature an all-new story, but Bowser’s Fury sports some of the best powerups from Super Mario 3D World, including the Super Bell, Fire Flower, Super Leaf, and Boomerang Flower; and Mario has to utilize all of them to collect enough Cat Shines (the game’s main collectible) to transform into Giga Cat Mario to face off against Fury Bowser in an epic showdown.
There is a lot to love about the latest Mario adventure, something that we can’t wait to dive into with you. Super Mario 3D World in itself is impressive with its tweaks to make it an even better play experience, but the newest adventure with Bowser’s Fury is a treat in its own right.
Our own Brian Shea gave the latest gaming journey a whopping 9.25, saying in his full review:
Having another chance to revisit Super Mario 3D World (or experience it for the first time) is reason enough to be excited. However, with an excellent, all-new game joining the Wii U port, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury is a compelling option for anyone who wants more Mario in their life.
