Super Mario 3D World given rough 8-hour completion time, but there’s more to see and do

Posted on November 9, 2013 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Podcast Stories, Wii U

How many hours of gameplay will Super Mario 3D World have to offer? TheBitBlock’s Josh Thomas, who has been playing through the title for review, said it took him about eight hours to complete. Naturally, this amount will differ by person.

Before you get too concerned, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. First, Super Mario 3D World has two extra modes available: Captain Toad and Mystery House. It’s unclear how much gameplay is contained in each, but it will surely extend the experience – even if it’s just by a bit.

We may also be dealing with a similar situation as Super Mario 3D Land’s post-game levels. Two separate reviewers, writing on NeoGAF, said the following about World’s length:

I won’t spoil anything, but anyone who has played 3D Land, knows that finishing the game is really not finishing it at all. That’s all I can say.

It’s a lot longer than 8 hours, folks. I can’t really say much more than that, but don’t worry.

So it may take you eight hours to complete Super Mario 3D World’s main story, but there should be more for players to see and do.

    He did say he rushed through the game aswell. Im not really bothered by this, mario games have never been lengthy its more about the imaganitive content in my opinion.

    Really looking forward to this one.

    I’ll take my time to complete the game.

    Yup, this is pretty much par for the course as far as Mario is concerned. A bit more for the 3D entries, a bit less for the 2D entries.

  • If it is at least as long as 3D Land, I have no complaints.
