Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury Trailer Has Big Kitty Energy

The new Bowser's Fury trailer shows off Mario 3D World's new area and what might be the plumber's biggest showdown yet.

The latest Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury trailer shows Bowser out of control, and Mario has to up his game to tame the massive menace.

Mario must gather cat versions of Shine Sprites to activate the large cat bell at the island's center because Bowser is Godzilla-sized and ready to destroy the world. Only super cat super Mario can stop him.

Bowser's Fury takes place in what looks like a mid-sized open-world sandbox, with multiple themed regions to explore and dozens of platforming challenges to overcome.

But Mario won't be alone in all this. Bowser Jr. is along for the ride, wielding his Super Mario Sunshine paintbrush to aid Mario.

Nintendo hasn't said whether Bowser Jr. is a non-playable character or if a second player can drop in for some Bowser's Fury co-op play. Given the new inclusion of online multiplayer for Mario 3D World, however, we'd be surprised if co-op weren't an option in Bowser's Fury.

While the 3D World cat powerup takes center stage, the new Bowser's Fury trailer shows a bevy of other powerups as well, including new classics such as Boomerang Mario. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury releases on February 12 for Nintendo Switch.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
