We love Nintendo as a brand and honestly Nintendo helped in the dark days of the Pandemic this year. It kept my son occupied and happy, which I loved seeing! Nintendo recently sent us some goodies including the Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, new Joy-Cons, and a fabulous, fun amiibo.
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury:
Join Mario and friends as they catapult through dozens of colorful environments packed with enticing challenges in the Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury game, which is now available on the Nintendo Switch family of systems. With Mario, Peach, Luigi and Toad among the cast of playable characters, you’ll find plenty of playful possibilities for single-player and multiplayer fun, both in-person and online. Plus, in Bowser’s Fury, you can team up with a friend, as Mario and Bowser Jr., to fight back against Bowser’s gargantuan new form.
“With the launch of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, we hope this is a delightful month for players everywhere as the Nintendo Switch library – and Mario himself! – continues to grow,” said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The addition of Bowser’s Fury will give this experience a long tail for players who want to continue their Giga-sized explorations with Mario and his rambunctious catalogue of friends and foes.”
I can tell you that Zane is already hooked on this game and he only has had it for a few weeks. Bowser is one of his favorite Nintendo characters so he loves that he is such a prominent figure in this game.
Mario Red and Blue Edition:
Now available is the Nintendo Switch – Mario Red & Blue Edition system. This special edition hardware is available through select retailers now at a suggested retail price of $299.99. It includes red Joy-Con controllers with blue straps, a blue Joy-Con grip, a red Nintendo Switch dock and a red Nintendo Switch system. It will also include a stylized Mario Red & Blue Edition Carrying Case and a screen protector.
Because Bowser and Bowser Jr. have large roles to play in Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, their amiibo figures, which will be available again for purchase at select retailers, have special activations in Bowser’s Fury. The Bowser Jr. amiibo triggers a powerful shockwave, while the Bowser amiibo triggers the treacherous Fury Bowser. Light a fire under Bowser’s tail (or Mario’s!) with these amiibo triggered tricks.
New amiibo figures for Cat Mario and Cat Peach, which offer in-game enhancements for Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, will also be available at select retailers. The Cat Mario amiibo grants players the ability to transform into an invincible White Cat form, another debut for the series! The Cat Peach amiibo causes helpful power-up items to appear randomly.
