The trailer shows Mario working with Bowser Jr. and exploring open-world levels, two elements that weren’t in the original Wii U linear game. The Switch version also adds, so you can join your faraway friends for chaotic multiplayer action.
Super Mario 3D World was the first game to feature Mario and pals’ cat suits, and the trailer highlights how Bowser’s Fury is leaning into the feline theme — just about every enemy has cute kitty ears.
Nintendo also revealed a new special Mario Red and Blue Edition Switch (matching the plumber’s iconic outfit) which includes red Joy-Con controllers with blue straps, a blue Joy-Con grip, a red Nintendo Switch dock and a red Switch system. It’s the first time the console itself has been available in a different color, and it comes with a red and blue carry case and screen protector. It comes out Feb. 12 too, but doesn’t include the game.
