Journey with Mario, Luigi and more to the Sprixie Kingdom in SUPER MARIO 3D WORLD! Bowser has kidnapped the Sprixie Princess, and it’s up to Mario and his friends to rescue her, racing to the Goal Pole at the end of various stages along the way! The Sprixie Kingdom contains all sorts of troublesome tricks and traps for our heroes to negotiate: transparent pipes to squeeze through, balls to aim and throw at enemies, and moving trains with roofs to ride! There may even be times when they need to clamber over a wall, just like a cat! With four-player local multiplayer and special Wii U GamePad controls, SUPER MARIO 3D WORLD is an all-new adventure that’s only available on Wii U!
Mario’s range of headwear – and special abilities – continues to expand! Along with classics such as Tanooki Mario and Boomerang Mario, there are several new power-ups to discover.

This adventure isn’t all about Mario, though! Luigi, Princess Peach and Toad are along for the ride too, and they each have different skills and abilities to offer. Mario offers the most balanced set of skills, while Luigi can leap the highest, Princess Peach can hover in mid-air and Toad is the fastest on the ground. Choose whichever character you like and use their unique skills to fully explore every corner of the courses! Up to four people can play together in SUPER MARIO 3D WORLD’s local multiplayer mode – work together to clear a stage or compete to see who can get the highest score at the end of each level!
