Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury is the improved version of the original game that was released on the Wii U in the 2013 holiday season. The time has come to get this game out of the Wii U cemetery and reach the Nintendo Switch, so is it worth buying again? Follow us to find out the answer.
The original Super Mario 3D World game was released on the Wii U amid a storm of doubts and criticism. The original game was the first Super Mario triple game for a home device after the legendary and amazing Super Mario Galaxy 2 release on the Wii. Expectations were very high and the audience was surprised at the shows with a game that looks like Very similar in character to Super Mario 3D Land, released on the 3DS mobile device. Well, when the game was released and we got our hands on it, we knew how hasty and wrong the audience’s judgment was, Super Mario 3D World was and still is a genius game and fortunately players loved it a lot after the release and were convinced of the ancient wisdom… Don’t judge the book by its cover!
For those who have not played the original version, Super Mario 3D World is a 3D platform game that supports multiplayer up to 4 players in all stages of the main game. The game moves away from galaxies, planets, and deep space and returns to the skies and worlds of the Mushroom Kingdom, what seems to us to be a re A complete visualization of two-dimensional Super Mario games and transferring them back to three dimensions, the main goal again is to reach the flag at the end of the stages with the assembly of the three stars as well as the printer in each stage. In our view, this game has always been one of the most wonderful Super Mario games, as it combines Mario with its classic elements and between the innovation and innovation revolution that accompanied the series with the Galaxy edition, and the presence of the three stars in the stages calls for exploration and re-visiting the stages over and over again to collect all stars.
The exciting thing is that this game arrives at the switch after the release of a game with a completely different orientation, which is Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Odyssey is an exploratory and open game in the first place and it is not a classic platform game at all, unlike 3D World, so you have to know your preferences dear Reader before you choose between the two games in case you want to. The strengths are completely different between the two games, and 3D World is the game that has the most accurate and professional design of the stages in linear style, while Odyssey is for lovers of exploration and research in the first place. 3D World is still a great game as we have always used it, and in our personal view it is the summit of games of this genre, yes, believe that, dear reader, there is no classic platform game capable of experiencing the tremendous fun that this amazing game offers.
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury is one of the biggest games in the history of console games, there is the basic fun adventure that tends to be relatively easy, and there are additional secret worlds that will make you break the controller (no, not that much, but it is definitely challenging. ), And after completing all the challenges and collecting everything, you will reach the “Hero Road” stage, which may be the greatest and most difficult stage in the history of 3D platform games. This is not all, the game offers many sub-challenges, including the wonderful Toad stages. Yes, this game is a full-fat meal and it is full of variety and crazy ideas and the fun doubles a lot when playing with a group of friends and competing for the “crown” that will be in a quiver The player with the best performance, or even stole it!
The game was not satisfied with the original content, the addition of multiplayer over the network, and the acceleration of the gameplay, it also added Bowser’s Fury (or Bowser’s World in the Japanese version of the game). Bowser World is a very experimental addition, and it offers a completely new design method for Super Mario games, different from all that preceded it, and even different from Odyssey as well. Bowser World presents a very huge world – by Mario’s standards – completely open to exploration and every part in this world is designed to be more like a small stage within this open world without loading times between these small particles or stages that are distributed as a group of islands in a water world that reminds us A little bit in Super Mario Sunshine (except that it is funnier than that whole game), and upon reaching every small stage within this world, the music changes dynamically and the desired goal appears on the screen. This add-on is very interesting and very valuable, and its content is equivalent to – an appreciation – two worlds from the original game, with all their stages and secrets. The most beautiful thing about this addition is the ingenuity of the development team from Tokyo in designing both large and small, you really will not appreciate the magnificence of this addition from the beginning, but the more you immerse yourself in playing the more you discover the dozens of small details hidden here and there, really no one designs platform games like This team.
This does not mean that the addition was complete anyway, as controlling it suffers a bit from the limitations of control in the original 3D World, and it is not as smooth as Odyssey and the many Odyssey mechanics, and the camera suffers strangely when fighting Bowser and the enormity of the sizes on the screen and again we think The engine of the original game is to blame here and it is designed with a different style of play in mind, and by mentioning the Bowser fight, it appears from time to time to hinder exploration on players and its appearance is accompanied by loud music with an electronic guitar that is completely different from anything we heard in Super Games Mario before. The Tokyo team excelled with this experimental addition, even at the level of the accompanying character (Bowser Junior!), Which will help the player and even be able to draw on the walls with his brush and embody some of the tools that Super Mario will obtain.
This version of the game is better looking than the original game on the Wii U, as it works at 1080p resolution in home mode, unlike the original game that was running at 720p resolution only, and it is still vibrant and full of bright and bright colors, this is a game full of joy and You will send happiness in your hearts in all its angles, we had learned that adding Bowser works at a resolution of 720p, but we did not notice any “blurry” in the game, as we can see in games that suffer from low display resolution and it seems that the game uses techniques to reconstruct the image and raise Its accuracy (temporal reconstruction) in some way, except that we noticed that the Bowser world ran smoother and smoother in the domestic setting than in the mobile position.
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury is the best classic platform game in video game history, with the richest and most varied content, and addictive multiplayer gameplay is nothing but the cherry on this delicious cake. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury deserves to be played again and is an excellent addition to the Super Mario series, and if you have not played it before, it is worth buying the Nintendo Switch for it.
