Super Mario 3D World trailer heavy on cat costumes

Wednesday, 23rd October 2013 06:01 GMT By Brenna Hillier

This new Japanese trailer for Super Mario 3D World shows off the four-player gameplay of the debut Wii U Mario title, showing off each character’s special moves as well as their cat costumes.

Mario’s special ability seems to be his famous bounce attack. Luigi can jump extra high, while Princess Peach can float. Finally, Toad can dash.

As a cat, the characters can perform claw and slide attacks and climb vertical surfaces.

Other transformations include Double Mario, Giant Mario, various boxes, and returning favourites Fire Mario and Tanooki Mario.

There’s also a wide variety of environments on offer, apparently. Anyway, it’s below in both Japanese and English.

Super Mario 3D World arrives in North America on November 22 in Europe on November 29.

Thanks, Gematsu.

    Nintendo has finally imploded on itself and became a cat meme.

    I am not sure what the hell I just watched but it didn’t entice me to get a Wii U. DK Tropical Freeze on the other hand…

    Well then I guess Im the only one that feels like people would assume Im a homosexual if I get caught playing a game like this?. Im sorry but they made it to cutesy for my taste.
    Mario died for me since Mario 64.

    Im more a Nintendo fan boy but lately they make to many kid childish games. Ill just wait for the next Zelda game and hopefully they make it like Twilight Princess.

    Playing Mario makes you gay? lol…

    What about playing a game like God of War where you are constantly looking at a half naked male’s rear side? Would that make someone advanced gay?

    Mario games = family friendly games ;)
