Super Mario 3D World coming to Wii U on December 13

Nintendo Direct has unveiled Super Mario 3D World, featuring four-player co-op and Cat Mario

The newest 3D Mario has been unveiled for Wii U and it's a follow-up to Super Mario 3D Land. Super Mario 3D World will feature the same type of 3D/2D mixture that Mario's handheld adventure featured, but will also feature four-player co-op. You'll be able to play as Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Peach. It's set to arrive on December 13.

And it wouldn't be a Mario game without new suits, as we got to check out Cat Mario for the first time.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Whoa! That looks like a lot of fun! Super Mario 3D Land is one of the best games I've played in the past couple years. This looks like a cross between New Super Mario brothers and that! Should be amazing.

      How is this different than the 3d land or new super mario brothers games. I would have thought with 'world' in the title, it would have a sprawling overworld map like SMW.

      Ugh, this better not be intended as Wii U's answer to Mario Galaxy :(

        Same here... but I think it is. I liked 3D land but it wasn't close to either of the Galaxy games.

        I was really hoping for something mind blowing like Galaxy.

        I still never played Mario Galaxy. At this point I am just holding out for HD versions.

          SMG2 is the second best Mario game ever behind Mario 64.

        Why? The 3D Land game in this style was an absolute blast.

      Looks like they just took NSMB Wii U and threw it in a 3D world =/

      Lol, the differing opinions in this thread. Personally, I'm glad that they're trying something somewhat new then just make another Galaxy. I loved 3D Land and it looks like i'll love this game, too. It looks like it's the US SMB2 thrown into a 3D world, and I am all about that.
