As a part of a stinging set of rumors which have been circulating around Nintendo since late spring, it had been foretold that the firm would be rereleasing an array of fan-favorite 3D Mario titles as part of one singular bundle. Atop from the claim, many suspected the firm may potentially offer the disclosed titles to be offered separately as well. These titles included the likes of Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy.
The assortment of games just late last month was said to be releasing between a “couple weeks”, told by SpawnWave's Jonathan Downey. Howbeit, not every titles made it in to the cut by reporting for that collection. While the already aforementioned titles is going to be shipping as part of the Mario 3D All-Stars bundle, other suspected titles will be sold separately.
One to be the Wii U-released Mario 3D World that was unveiled during today's Super Mario Direct. Previously being for auction on Best Buy for that platform, the game will be returning having a graphical retouching and new content not included in the base game. You can watch the announcement trailer in the video below:
“Pounce and climb through a large number of colorful stages! Mario (and his friends) may use power-ups like the Super Bell, which grants catlike abilities, like climbing and scratching,” the synopsis reads on the game's eShop page. “Work together locally* or online** with up to three other players to reach the goal-and to see who can obtain a high score.”
And you actually read that correct, Super Mario 3D World unlike its original Wii U version will now include online play for the first time alongside the originally offered local co-op. As well as the reiteration from the 2013 title, Nintendo announces you will see a brand new extension DLC for that game dubbed 'Bowser's Fury'.
While not much is illustrated in the announcement, you can catch a glimpse of what to expect from the ending segment of the trailer. Nintendo tells that more information on Mario 3D World which is presumed the firm will elaborate more about the newly announced add-on as well then.
