A significant portion of the trailer is spent on the base game’s content, going over its story and gameplay features. While most of 3D World will be the same as the original Wii U version, there have been a few welcome updates.
For starters, all characters now move faster, even the already speedy Toad. For those that like to take screenshots, there’s a new photo mode which works similarly to the one in Odyssey. Stamps even make their return, and can be used to add decals to stages while in photo mode.
Online play has also been implemented — something that is especially needed during current events. It works as you’d expect, letting you play with three friends from around the world.
Meanwhile, the Bowser’s Fury section of the trailer covers a lot of what we already saw yesterday, though there are a few extra reveals. Bowser Jr., who follows Mario throughout this adventure, can be controlled by a second player, and scanning amiibo will offer up some bonus rewards.
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury releases on February 12, with a Mario themed Switch becoming available on the same day.
