First revealed during Nintendo’s June 2023 Direct, Super Mario Bros. Wonder marks the return of 2D side-scrolling action for the storied Italian plumber.
The reveal trailer showcases a rejuvenated art and animation style, which firmly differentiates the title from the New Super Mario Bros. games we’ve received in recent years.
Rumours continue to swirl of an ‘imminent’ launch to the successor of the aging Switch platform. It’s possible that this latest entry in the Super Mario franchise might be the last blockbuster release before we see new hardware from the Japanese gaming giant.
Super Mario Bros. Wonder launches exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on October 20, 2023.
