Super Mario Bros. Wonder Announced, Launches October 20th

Mario returns in a new 2.5D side-scrolling adventure, hunting for Wonder Seeds alongside Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Toad and many more.

Along with a remake of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon Remaster and a new Princess Peach title, Nintendo announced a new side-scrolling Super Mario Bros. title. It’s called Super Mario Bros. Wonder and launches on October 20th for the Nintendo Switch. Check out the first gameplay below.

The same classic platforming remains intact but with tons of new mechanics. Mario can take different forms, from an elephant to a spiked ball that can demolish obstacles. Certain stages can devolve into chaos, with rising and falling pipes and other insanity, as Mario and his friends attempt to collect the Wonder Seeds.

Other playable characters include Luigi, Toad, Daisy, Peach, Yoshi and even Wiggler, with four-player co-op support. There’s also a talking flower who guides Mario through the various levels. Overall, Super Mario Bros. Wonder looks like a fun platformer with tons of variety.
