Power up, team up, one up to save the Sprixie Kingdom!

Pounce and climb through dozens of colorful courses! Multiply the fun by teaming up with or competing against friends locally** or online*** to reach each stage's goal. Work together to explore and uncover collectibles, or compete for the crown by earning the highest score, making for a friendly frenzy! Mario (and his friends) can use a variety of power-ups like the Super Bell, which grants catlike abilities like climbing and scratching. Power up to complete stages and take the crown!

Explore a seamless feline world in the new Bowser's Fury adventure

Free-roaming Super Mario gameplay makes a return in this brand-new adventure. Bowser has become gargantuan and lost all control! Explore Lake Lapcat and its islands, complete objectives to collect Cat Shines, and team up with Bowser Jr. to bring his big, bad dad back to normal. Just watch out for Bowser's island-wide attacks.

New and improved features pounce in

The Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury game features the same lively co-op gameplay, creative levels and power-ups as the original game, but with added improvements. In the Super Mario 3D World part of the game, characters move faster and the dash powers up more quickly. Both adventures support the newly added Snapshot Mode—pause the action to get the perfect shot, apply filters, and decorate with stamps!

In Super Mario 3D World, choose from Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad and set off to save the Sprixie Kingdom. Each character has a distinct playstyle—Luigi can jump extra high and Peach can float for a short time. Rosalina is also available as a playable character later in the game! Jump, dash, and pounce to reach the goal while collecting Green Stars, coins and power-ups.

Collect stamps throughout your adventure in Super Mario 3D World and use them in Snapshot Mode (in both Super Mario 3D World and the Bowser's Fury adventure) to create masterpieces to share with friends and family.

In Bowser's Fury, Mario arrives on Lake Lapcat and is confronted with a rampaging Bowser! Join forces with Bowser Jr. and venture through an interconnected world made of cat-themed…well, everything. Enemies, flowers, and even birds take on a feline form.

Need some extra assistance bringing Bowser out of his frenzied, furious state? Another player can take control of Bowser Jr. and help out by attacking enemies and storing power-ups. Two sets of claws are better than one!


While the story of the Super Mario 3D World portion of the game is unchanged, the Bowser's Fury campaign features a separate, standalone story. Outside of Peach's Castle, Mario comes across mysterious black goop, which expands into a portal that pulls him inside. The portal transports Mario to a region known as Lake Lapcat, where he encounters Fury Bowser, a gigantic, enraged form of Bowser rampaging the area. As soon as Mario collects a Cat Shine, however, Fury Bowser retreats. Soon after, Mario comes across Bowser Jr., who explains that his father has been corrupted by the black goop covering Lake Lapcat and asks for his help to return him to normal.


The gameplay of the Super Mario 3D World campaign is largely identical to the original Wii U release, with some adjustments and enhancements. In addition to four-player local multiplayer, the game now supports both local wireless and online multiplayer across multiple systems, with each player joining a single save file. As with the original release, players can drop in and out at any point during gameplay. Similar to the Nintendo Switch release of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, pressing the R button enables a motion-controlled pointer to interact with touchscreen-based features when the system is docked or tabletop, while microphone-based features have been removed and replaced.

Bowser's Fury is a standalone campaign in which players control Mario in an open sandbox environment. Bowser Jr. accompanies Mario, and will automatically attack enemies, collect items, and supply power-ups to Mario from the item inventory; the player can adjust how much Bowser Jr. will assist, or disable his assistance entirely. The player can also manually instruct him by using the pointer, or he can be controlled by a second player.
