Super Mario 3D World Announced For Wii U


Nintendo have announced Super Mario 3D World for the Wii U, a 3D Mario game that will be similar in concept to Super Mario 3D Land, which combined the 2D and 3D styles of play.


Super Mario 3D World will feature four playable characters—Mario, Luigi, Toad and Peach—each with their own abilities. For example, Peach will be able to hover, while Toad will be able to run the fastest. A new ability, Cat Mario, will allow Mario to climb up walls and scratch enemies.


The game’s multiplayer will be as cooperative and competitive as you’d like it to be, according to Nintendo president Satoru Iwata.


Super Mario 3D World will be available this December.
