Super Mario 3D World Trailer

Not to be lost in the shuffle with the Xbox One and PS4 events, Nintendo attempted to revitalize the Wii U by showing off some familiar friends.  One game they announced that I’m very excited about is Super Mario 3D World.  It’ll be the first 3D Mario game on the Wii U, and judging by the trailer it packs in some new features while retaining everything that was great about Mario 64 and the Galaxy series.  Here is the Super Mario 3D World trailer that was shown at the Nintendo E3 event.

The first thing you notice about the trailer is the new cat suit.  It transforms Mario into a lean, mean, Goomba killing machine.  Mario can perform some unique attacks with this suit, no longer having to rely on the time-tested method of jumping on an enemy skull.  Hopefully there are a couple other new suits in the final version of the game, but the cat suit is a nice start.

It was also cool to see Princess Peach as a playable character again.  Naturally, she has the special power of being able to hover for a short while after jumping.  Indeed, Super Mario 3D World looks like it’ll be the most comprehensive Mario game to date.  The only thing I would have liked to see was Yoshi, but the lovable dinosaur is likely to make an appearance, right?
