Nintendo has shared the overview trailer for their upcoming 2D platformer Super Mario Bros. Wonder, highlighting the game’s premise and gameplay elements. Nothing in this video seems new, as it’s a condensed recap of the game’s dedicated Direct presentation from late last month. For an extensive breakdown of Super Mario Bros. Wonder’s contents, check out our coverage of that Direct.
In case you missed the news, the voice actor of Mario himself and other characters in the franchise, Charles Martinet, has officially stepped down from the role, with a new actor taking the reins for Super Mario Bros. Wonder.
In the game, Prince Florian invited Mario and his friends to the Flower Kingdom. However, when Bowser attacks and comes into contact with the Wonder Flower, he merges with the prince’s castle. Of course, the heroes set off on a quest to halt Bowser’s ambitions.
The game has six worlds that circle the petal isles, with a total of 7 areas to explore. There will be several types of environments throughout the levels, such as caves, deserts, and grasslands.
Luigi, Peach, Daisy, two Toads, and Toadette are also playable alongside Mario, and they all control the same. The Yoshi and Nabbit won’t take damage, though, so they’re for beginners. But they can still lose lives if they fall into a pit. Players can experience stages with new power-ups, badges, and the Wonder Flower that significantly alters the layout of the environment. Four-player local play will also be featured alongside indirect online player interaction.
