Super Mario 3D World is a game for the Wii U. It is the sixth 3D game in the Super Mario series (seven, if one counts Super Mario 64 DS, which is simply a remake of Super Mario 64). Like its predecessor Super Mario 3D Land, it shows more similarities to the 2D Mario platformers, such as those in the New Super Mario Bros. series, such as time limits, and Goal Poles. This game also introduces several new power-ups, including the Super Bell, Lucky Bell, and Double Cherry.

The game was released on November 22, 2013 in North America.


In this game, Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad (who is blue in this game) are walking outside. Mario and Luigi see a broken pipe. When they fix it, Bowser pops out of it and informs them that he has kidnapped the Sprixie Princesses (Peach: HAAAAAAAAAAAALELUJAH! FOR ONCE IT'S NOT ME! (Bowser: Yeah, I need these princesses to build castles.)), and the heroes must save them all. They go through worlds 1-6, World Castle, and finally, World Bowser. There are also four special worlds, World Star, World Mushroom, World Flower, and World Crown, but that's a story for another time.

After the player completes World Castle and rescues the seventh and final Sprixie Princess, Bowser captures them all again and takes them to World Bowser.

Mario and co. fight Bowser in The Great Tower of Bowser Land, where he uses a Super Bell (which turns him into Meowser) and four Double Cherries in the battle, as five Meowsers chase Mario up a tower, which has a giant POW block at the top. The player cannot touch Meowser at all during the battle, as you must hit the POW block four times to defeat him them.

When playing in multiplayer, there are competitive as well as cooperative elements within levels. The players compete for the most points while also trying to complete the levels.
