Super Mario 3D World gets its biggest trailer yet

To prepare for the impending release of Super Mario 3D World in November, Nintendo has released another trailer to the public.

The latest footage is perhaps the best yet, with new features and power ups being displayed. You can see some new levels being shown off, like the bullet bill train stage, and Bowser’s carnival. The tropical level, revealed in screenshots earlier this month gets some exposure, with a new ability featured in it. Mario jumps onto a koopa troopa and steals his shell, using it for himself. Once a character burrows inside of it, they change the shell’s color to that of their clothes. You can slide around and knock foes down in your path, so it’s somewhat in the vein of the shell power up in New Super Mario Bros. Another box power up is revealed, with a flashlight attached to it; you can use it to light up dark areas and ward away boos as well as other ghostly creatures that will attempt to attack you.

Some old favorites return too, like the white tanooki suit that makes you invincible. It appears that this power up will be used for when you’re having trouble on a certain level. The tanooki suit is of course back, and controls just like it did in Super Mario 3D Land. Finally, there’s an item we haven’t seen in a long long time, and this time it’s not just limited to the 2D world of Mario; the mega mushroom makes its return, allowing you to grow several times your normal size for a short period of time, as well as making you invincible. Just like New Super Mario Bros, you can destroy pretty much anything in your path, even solid brick.

What’s also been included is an online mode, where you race against ghost miis that other players have made. It’s a nice feature for those of you wishing to test your skills out, seeing just how quickly you can beat the levels. Super Mario 3D World will arrive in stores November 22nd.

About Christopher Deleanides

Well, my name's Christopher Deleanides as you all know and I'm the Nintendo Editor here at BG. I've been playing video games since 1992, and I've been a Nintendo fan the entirety of those years. My love for video games as well as Nintendo hasn't changed, and probably never will. The only thing that comes close is politics, as I'm very deeply involved in both local and international issues.

  1. Love that shell-stealing mechanic- and good god are there a ton of powerups in this game! All that plus the nods to SMB2 (which I always thought got the short end of the stick) and I’m looking forward to 3D World big time.

    Yeah I can’t wait to see how they employ more of these abilities. Mega mushroom in particular excited me the most, and being able to use it in a 3D environment will be great.

  3. I love that thing! Smashing stuff as a gigantic Mario never gets old 😉

    Remember the first time they revealed it in the NSMB trailers? I couldn’t contain my hype. I’m kind of glad they didn’t over use it, this way it’s fresh in games like this.

  5. YES! I really dig that Nintendo doesn’t use the same set of powerups in every single Mario title- except fire Mario of course. But that kind of has to be in all of ’em.
