Super Mario 3D World also brings players the Cannon Box, which attaches to the characters’ heads and fires powerful cannonballs at enemies, and the Boomerang Flower which, as the name suggests, grants characters the ability to hurl boomerangs at enemies. The main control method for Super Mario 3D World is the Wii U GamePad, which utilizes both the microphone and touchscreen for further optional functionality (though for some levels, that extra functionality is required), but players can also use the Wii U Pro Controller as well as the Wii Remote. While all of this comes together to create a stellar Mario experience, it’s the level design that really hammers Super Mario 3D World home as the must-have game for the Wii U.
Playing through these unique levels could prove to be enough, but Nintendo stuffed each and every one of them with more content than you can find in a single run.
Super Mario 3D World does more for the series than any game since the original Super Mario Galaxy hit the Wii in 2007.

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Galaxy offered players a hub world connected to many different thematic worlds that offered several challenges in exchange for stars, but 3D World sticks to select levels, each with three hidden stars to collect. If it weren’t for the inventive level design and power-ups, 3D World would feel too similar to very recent Mario games, like the designers have run out of creative juice. If you have played that 3DS Mario game, then multiplayer will provide the innovation you seek in graduating to Wii U.
Some levels seem more appropriate for single-player, like dinosaur-sliding levels, while others seemed tuned specifically to competing with others, like race levels that give you just 100 seconds on the clock compared to the 400 seconds levels typically start with.
At first, I figured classic Mario was the best way to play 3D World, but after trying the others I settled on playing as Peach for the rest of the adventure. With sales not living up to expectations, and the brand new Xbox One and PlayStation 4 launching just in time for the holidays, Nintendo has been left looking for a way to spark consumer interest. This time, however, players can choose between Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad, each with their own skill sets similar to those found in the U.S. The old favorites such as the Super Mushroom, the Fire Flower, the Starman, and the Tanooki Super Leaf are all present, but the spotlight is absolutely stolen by the new offerings. Arguably the best addition is the Double Cherry power-up, which adds a duplicate of the character that picks up the Cherry. Players can mix and match all of these in order to participate in the game’s excellent co-op, which more or less applies the New Super Mario Bros.

Players are treated to the most well thought-out levels since Super Mario Galaxy, which is evident by how diverse they are.
The developers knew exactly how to tickle the nostalgia bone of players while offering something completely new and exciting for longtime fans — something that the New Super Mario Bros. You can unsubscribe at any time and we'll never share your details without your permission.
It’ll take curiosity and a few errant bounces to reveal every hidden item block or alternate path to the end of a level or a treasure trove of golden coins. Mario and company are guests in the Sprixie Kingdom, but this new locale seems a lot like past Mushroom Kingdoms. Power-ups that clone Mario and company to double, triple, or quadruple stomping power, power-ups that give all four heroes a cat-suit and versatile attacks and climbing abilities, and even new classic power-ups like the Mega Mushroom or Boomerang Flower keep levels exhilarating and fresh. The shoeboxes Mario and company explore are wide enough to accommodate four players, but the same challenges you find in the NSMB series rear their head when turning friends into frenemies in 3D World. There’s a big, satisfying adventure for fans young and old in this package and multiplayer, replayability, and the possibilites for DLC down the line make it a worthy piece of software for prospective Wii U buyers. While The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD boosted sales a bit, the Wii U still needed a new title to help carry the hype into 2014. The most advertised power-up prior to launch has been the Cat Bell, which puts Mario and company in adorable catsuits and grants them the powers to slash at enemies, climb up walls, and perform a ninja-esque dive attack when the action button is pressed in mid-air. These duplicates can be used to attack multiple enemies at once or to access areas that require multiple copies of one character. There are also special speed run levels, rapid-fire green star-collecting challenge levels, and ingenious Captain Toad levels, which add a welcomed puzzle element to the equation.
In 3D World, you and up to three friends can run around the world map together, bounce your heads on item blocks, and uncover secrets.
Mario games have always had mysterious stuff like this, but 3D World goes out of its way to help you actually discover its best secrets. Playing as Toad with two friends as Mario and Luigi, I wanted to shout at them to get out of the way before I died or got attacked by a large fish in an underwater level. I also appreciated that even in single player you can choose the character that plays to your strengths. With Super Mario 3D World, Nintendo has found its best chance to bolster sales and keep the console in the competition. Controlling multiple Marios or Peaches at the same time can prove challenging, though, as players will undoubtedly lose characters off ledges. With outstanding level design, the most amusing power-ups in years, and imaginative use of the Wii U controls, Super Mario 3D World is the game Wii U owners have been waiting for.

Levels with Secret Goals have two end flags in different locations, a black "normal" flag and a red Secret Goal flag that leads to shortcuts or Warp Cannons. Unfortunately, the expansive, free-roaming trial-by-fire style that gamers expect of Mario and Nintendo on every new home console wasn’t present at launch. Thankfully, Shigeru Miyamoto and company have readied a new 3D Mario game for Wii U’s second holiday season at market. There’s a specific path through every level, even if it might seem like these 3D worlds offer more freedom than a 2D level. Mario is the all-around character, while Luigi can jump higher, Peach can float, and Toad can run just a bit faster than everyone else. U can attest, this can spell pure, chaotic fun as players work to achieve the same goal but end up getting in the way of each other more often than not. In the best multiplayer games the initial thrill endures or, better, evolves; in NSMBW, the initial thrill may not be that initial. Players still have to start at the same point and end up at the goal pole regardless of whether they discover secret items and hidden pathways on the way. Certain levels will also contain character-specific passages, which require a particular character in order to access.
First timers curse as much as cheer, and the real results are better measured in smiles or frowns than the coin counter. There are multiple routes to take along a particular warping path, so plan your way by knowing where every secret exit is.World 1-3Get a Yoshi up to this platform, but instead of entering the tunnel, jump up and flutter jump to the right.
Then ride the elevator down (avoiding the Boos) for an exit and another cannon, this time to World 6.World 4 - Mid CastleBe quick here and jump upon the first 2 blocks as they fall and leap into a secret passage in the left wall. Head through the pipe and then it's just a jump toward the right for the exit.World 4 - Ghost HouseRide this platform to reveal a door. In the next room, ignore all the doors until you reach the one on the far right - this secret exit takes you straight to the level boss (there's even a Toad house on the way).World 5 - Ghost HouseUse the light block to reach this door. In this new room, platform all the way right for a secret exit to a World 8 cannon.World 6-5When the water drops, jump between the two center blocks to reveal a beanstalk. Travel up it and run along the tunnel for an exit leading to a cannon all the way to World 8.World 7 - Mid CastleHalfway up the second stretch, jump onto the brown prong on the right and run off the screen. Climb the following room for an exit and shortcut to World 7-5.World 8-2Head back left under these platforms (through hidden passages) to find a secret room.
