A little more than a couple of weeks ago, Nintendo revealed in one of those famous Nintendo Directs that fans like so much various very interesting video games, including Super Mario Bros Wonder for Nintendo Switch, a title that represents the classic return to the system. side-scrolling game that saw the birth of Nintendo's mascot, a change in relation to what Super Mario Odyssey offered. The question is, what do we know so far about the long-awaited game of our mustachioed hero in the red cap? Well, let's break it all down little by little in this text. Shall we begin?

Super Mario Bros Wonder trailer and official eShop page

On the other hand, Super Mario Bros. Wonder has had a dedicated page on the Nintendo website since the announcement took place, it is the one that can be seen in the following image and in addition, it has various information about it in the form of functionalities, number of possible players, a handful of official game images, etc.

It is worth mentioning that since August 2022 there were already rumors about the possibility of a new 2D Mario video game for 2023. So the information from the popular Zippo leaker was accurate. He even got several details right: Mario, Luigi, Peach and Toad would be playable characters, they would not be part of the “New” series that started on the Nintendo DS and they would have a new artistic style.

Release date, price, download size and pre-orders

Nintendo has set the release date for Super Mario Bros Wonder for this year, specifically, for October 20 . Likewise, it is more than confirmed, as is usually the case in video games produced by the company based in Kyoto, that it will have both a digital and a physical version, although sadly and for the moment, without much hope that this will change, there will not be no type of collector's edition, special Nintendo Switch or peripheral to celebrate this launch.

As for the official sales price, the one marked by Nintendo is €59.99 , the standard for its new releases, at least, in digital format. Likewise, for those of you who choose to buy it in this format, you will be interested to know that its download size is 4.5 GB . On the other hand, in physical format and as is the norm, the price usually varies depending on the retailer chosen for your reservation, from €59.99 full price at the Nintendo Store or GAME , to €46.99 at Carrefour or Mediamarkt , As we already told you several days ago in this news. So, one can easily save almost €15 if you shop around a little, which is no small feat.

The story of Super Mario Bros. Wonder

Although it would be daring to risk talking about the story that serves as the driving force for this Super Mario Bros Wonder, since there is no official information about it yet , the almost three-minute trailer provides some information about it. The first fact of interest is that, unlike in other adventures, this time Mario will not be alone in his titanic task of rescuing the Mushroom Kingdom , as several well-known people from the franchise will be there with our hero. Likewise, at minute 1:37 you can see a huge ship with Bowser's face flying over the skies, so it is to be expected that the King of the Koopa will once again be the villain on this occasion (something that will surely not surprise nobody).

Finally, it seems that Mario does not get stars at the end of the phases, but instead receives a kind of bluish fruit (possibly those called Wonder Seeds), similar to the flower that stars in the official art . What value will they have in his adventure? I suppose they will be used to access new areas, but we will have to wait...

What will the gameplay be like?

Super Mario Bros Wonder is a side-scrolling Mario game in the old-school sense , so expect movement from left to right filled with many jumps through a series of differentiated phases that will test our platforming skills. . Furthermore, thanks to the trailer we know that there will be an overworld species from which to move our character to enter those levels (something also already well known in the series), as well as to, presumably, carry out some secondary activity.

On the other hand, one of the most curious changes that we have been able to see in the presentation video is in the addition of those Wonder Flowers, so protagonists that, when touched, they seem to have the ability to twist the world around us as they please. many and different ways . Pipes can come to life to move, while enemies can even suddenly flood the screen, and characters can change their appearance, which will undoubtedly act as an agent of change to take the player out of their comfort zone.

How many characters are there? And Boosters?

So far, the characters confirmed by the trailer, in a Nintendo Direct and officially by Nintendo on the dedicated page are the following :

  • Mario
  • Luigi
  • Peach
  • daisy
  • yellow toad
  • blue toad
  • Toadette
  • Yoshi
  • red yoshi
  • Yellow Yoshi
  • light blue yoshi
  • Caco Gazapo

Caco Gazapo and the Yoshi are like the “easy mode” of the game. Although it will not be possible to use power-ups with them, you will not take any damage.

As for the power-ups announced to date , both previously known and new, they are the following:

  • Mushroom
  • Super Mushroom
  • Flower of fire
  • Wonder Flower
  • Lanky form (consequence of Wonder Flower)

  • Spikeball Mario (unofficial name)
  • Luminous flower (transformation into light)
  • Elephant Fruit (unofficial name)
  • Yoshi (direct control)
  • Champitadro: A new power-up that allows you to dig your way down into the earth.
  • Bubble Flower : Enclose your enemies in bubbles and you can eliminate them.
  • Elefanzana : you transform into an elephant and, apart from having more strength, you can hold and pour water.

Something very different from what was seen in previous games is the Wonder Flower. When you get one, you see everything in colors, your perspective can change and things get very crazy. An example:

Definitely, the Wonder Flower will give a lot of laughs and will be one of the best things about Super Mario Bros. Wonder .

As if that were not enough, this will also help you find hidden levels.

New and old enemies

In addition to the Goombas, Piranha Plants, Cheeps Cheeps or Florugas , the video has shown a series of rivals who will try to hinder the progress of Mario and company and who, so far, seem to be created for this specific title. For example, a type of purple ball hippopotamus, some storm clouds with an unfriendly face, a type of cowardly squirrels that seem to flee at the slightest hint of danger, some fish-shaped balloons, some extremely elongated Bala Bills, or some Hammer Brothers with gloves pushing pipes, among many others. The taste is in the variety, right? If you want a summary of all of them.

Multiplayer in Super Mario Bros. Wonder

Needless to say, Super Mario Bros Wonder can be enjoyed alone if desired from start to finish, but as could be seen in the trailer, and as confirmed by Nintendo itself, the game will have a cooperative mode. Although it seems that it will be limited to local play , as indicated in the following official information:

Share a wonderful experience with friends and other Mario fans.

"Join forces with up to three other people in local mode, and gather in front of the same Nintendo Switch console to enjoy amazing things together, while you go through the levels as a team and help each other to reach the finish line".

Likewise, the game page reports that there will be “Nintendo Switch Online Features.” However, they may be limited to cloud data saving and little else, rather than possible online multiplayer.

As explained in a Nintendo Direct , you can place signs to revive again once you are in ghost mode after having died. The idea is to place them in difficult moments where you think there is a high chance of dying. The latter is mainly because you don't have much time to touch the sign once you become a ghost.

Nintendo Switch OLED themed with Super Mario Bros. Wonder

A new Nintendo Switch OLED was announced during a Nintendo Direct . This would be themed with Super Mario Bros. Wonder and will go on sale on October 6, 2023, before the game. It is red, has an image of Super Mario in one corner and the typical coins that have characterized the saga.
