Super Mario 3D World is the newest 3D Super Mario game. Made by the creators of super Mario galaxy, this is probably the best 3D plat former on the Wii U. This is also the first super Mario game that has four playable characters from the start. In addition, it’s beautiful HD graphics makes up for no 3D.
The playable characters for this game are listed below, each having a unique special ability.
Mario is a great all around character with no special ability, he is just all around great at everything.
Luigi is just the same as Mario, except he can jump higher, but has less traction.
Peach is in a class of her own, she runs slow, but she can float for an extra second. This is very helpful in vital situations.
Toad is almost the complete opposite of Peach. He runs really fast but has bad jumps
Hidden character: Rosalina!
Rosalia is the most special of all the characters. She runs slowly, like Peach, jumps high, like Luigi, but if she has no power up she can spin to attack!
There are tons of new and old power ups in Super Mario 3D world. Starting off with the cat suit.
The cat suit is a power up that lets you be a… well, a cat. You can scratch enemies, pounce from above, and climb almost any surface! You can activate this power by grabbing a super bell.
Each character in the cat suit (not including Rosalina.)
The double cherry lets you… well, double yourself! You can have up to 5 clones and have an additional power up (like a cat suit) with double Mario. You cannot take this power up to other levels.
Look at all the fire Marios! Which one is the real one?
Other power ups include fire Mario, boomerang Mario, and Tanooki (Raccoon) Mario.
So if Peach isn’t kidnapped, who is? This time Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad are taking a stroll when they run into a clear pipe. Suddenly a sprixie princess comes out followed by Bowser, then he kidnapped the sprixie princess and her friends.
The Sprixie in the jar… and the jar in Bowser’s Hand! OH NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The levels are now in the Sprixie kingdom and not the Mushroom kingdom. There are 8 main worlds, like in all Mario games. This time on the map you can move around freely and jump too, which lets you possibly find an extra life.
