Super Mario 3D World gameplay trailer delves into powerups, abilities

New, 11 comments

A Japanese language introductory gameplay trailer for Super Mario 3D World offers a deeper look at the game's new powerups and items, as well as its four-player multiplayer.

The six minute video also demonstrates the basic abilities of the game's well-known stars. Where Mario is the vanilla character, Toad is the fastest, Luigi can jump higher but is harder to control and Princess Peach can extend her jumps by floating.

A previously released gameplay trailer introduced the game's powerups and items, such as the cat and Tanooki suits, an item that duplicates the character on screen, along with an item that turns the player into a Hammer Bro.
