The Super Mario Bros. Wonder Direct Showed Just How Weird And Wonderful The Game Will Be

It looks Wonder-ful

The latest Nintendo Direct dropped early this morning, focusing solely on Super Mario Bros. Wonder, giving us many details and showing off gameplay.

The 15-minute showcase provided an in-depth look at the latest 2D Mario adventure, detailing the game’s unique features and new setting. Wonder takes place in the Flower Kingdom and is split into seven different areas, from the classic look in the Pipe-Rock Plateau to the icy tundra that is Fluff-Puff Peaks. Unlike previous games, the levels within these lands can be played in any order, with the player able to wander around the semi-open hub worlds, picking which course they want to take on. Once completed, each level will be replayable from within a course menu, making it easier to find and return to your favourites.

There will be 12 playable characters to choose from, with Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Yellow Toad, Blue Toad and Toadette all providing a classic experience, while the four coloured Yoshi and Nabbit make the game easier as they don’t take damage, but also don’t see the effects of power-ups. You’ll be able to play through levels with up to three friends locally or online, with the game also including various other social features. Players can see ghosts of online players and leave standees that can revive other players who are in a bind.

We get to see the game’s new power-ups, such as the Elephant, Bubble and Drill powers in action, and the titular Wonder Flowers that drastically change the level. These power-ups alter reality, making pipes come to life and move, tilting the entire screen, causing huge bubbles to appear or even changing the game’s perspective altogether. These Wonder Effects subside once you collect the Wonder Seeds, letting you return to good old platforming.
