Super Mario Bros Wonder released
New 2D side-scrolling Mario game is out today
Nintendo has announced the launch of the Super Mario Bros. Wonder game.
In Super Mario Bros. Wonder, Prince Florian invites Mario and his friends to the Flower Kingdom. But Bowser, the King of the Koopas, has other plans. With just a single touch of the Wonder Flower, Bowser merges with Prince Florian’s castle. As a result of his newfound power, chaos spreads across the land. Now it’s up to Mario and pals to stop Bowser and save the Flower Kingdom.
The game features the debut of new power-ups such as the Elephant Fruit, which allows Mario and some of his friends to transform into Elephant form. As the adventure progresses, players will be able to earn a variety of different in-game badges, each with its own special abilities. Players can overcome obstacles with the Wall-Climb Jump and Crouching High Jump Badges, enjoy an underwater burst of speed courtesy of the Dolphin Kick Badge, shoot vines in mid-air and stick to walls with the Grappling Vine Badge or confuse enemies.
Up to four people can play in local co-op on one Nintendo Switch system. Defeated players will float around the course as ghosts, but if another player reaches them before time runs out, they’ll jump right back into action, and the group won’t lose any lives. While playing online, players can get together with friends in a shared room. There they can see which courses their friends are playing, play the same course together or even turn most courses into a friendly race.
Super Mario Bros. Wonder is available exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
