New, 12 comments

Nintendo's kid-friendly puppet show hosted by a cat-suited Mario and Peach, The Cat Mario Show, is now available to watch on Nintendo 3DS, 2DS and Wii U, the company announced today.

The Cat Mario Show features fun facts, quizzes and tips on different Nintendo games. The first episode is available on the European Nintendo eShop; releases in other territories have not been announced.

"In the first video, the two hand-puppet hosts reveal insider secrets on becoming a Mario Expert and challenge kids to spot the hidden Luigi in Super Mario 3D World," the announcement reads, "while the show also delivers some top tips on becoming super powerful in the Kirby Fighters battle mode of Kirby: Triple Deluxe."

The cat suit version of Mario is a play off the new power-up in Super Mario 3D World, which transforms Mario and his friends into cats capable of scaling walls. You can watch the first episode below.
