Super Mario Bros. Wonder revealed for Switch
During today’s Nintendo Direct, it was announced that Super Mario Bros. Wonder is coming to Switch. Fans will be able to pick it up on October 20, 2023.
While we’ve seen a couple of Super Mario Maker games, 2D Mario has largely been missing for many years. New Super Mario Bros. U launched for Wii U in 2012, and the New Super Luigi U expansion came out a year later. Both experiences were later ported to Switch, but we haven’t seen anything since then – again, outside of Mario Maker.
We have the following overview for Super Mario Bros. Wonder:
The next evolution of 2D side-scrolling Super Mario Bros. games is headed to Nintendo Switch! When you touch a Wonder Flower in the game, the wonders of the world unlock – pipes could come alive, hordes of enemies may appear, characters might change their looks, for example – transforming the gameplay in unpredictable ways. Excitement and different surprises await in each course. Super Mario Bros. Wonder features Princess Peach, Princess Daisy and Yoshi as playable characters, in addition to familiar characters like Mario, Luigi and Toad. Plus, Super Mario Bros. Wonder sees the debut of Mario’s newest power-up, which allows him to transform into Elephant Mario! What other wonders could this game contain? More details will be shared at a later time, so please look forward to it!
