The wait has been quite long, but Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury is now almost here, releasing later this week worldwide. If you’re still on the fence about getting the game when it launches on February 12, you will definitely want to check out the game’s only review, which has been published on the latest issue of Famitsu.
Nintendo Everything provided a full English translation of the review. The four reviewers awarded the game a total score of 36/40, which is quite high, considering most of the experience is identical to the original Wii U release’s.
One thing is certain: you will be spending quite a bit of time with Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. The game’s main campaign is packed full of levels and secrets to discover, and the additional Bowser’s Fury campaign will provide the open-ended experience that Mario fans expect out of a 3D entry in the series. A lot of love has been put into this release, and it clearly shows: the original game didn’t enjoy huge success due to the Wii U not doing great on the market, so it is nice to see the development team do its best to leave a lasting impression on those who are going to play Super Mario 3D World for the first time.
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury launches on Nintendo Switch on February 12.
