Super Mario 3D World video shows off brand new power-ups

Updated with English language trailer.

Sure, this six minute video of Super Mario 3D World is in Japanese English. But Mario games are so instantly enjoyable, you won't have any trouble understanding what's going on. This video shows off the many new gameplay features of the Wii U game, from the unique SMB2-inspired character abilities to new power-ups like the double cherry and light box. You'll also see the new Miiverse-enabled ghosts.

Watching this video should explain exactly why we were so enthused about the game after our most recent hands-on. The variety on display in this video shows that Nintendo Tokyo certainly knows how to keep Mario fresh--with or without cat ears.
