Mario’s Gone Cuckoo for Power-ups


Super Mario 3D World is going crazy with the power-ups. In addition to the new cat suit which turns characters into fuzzy little kitties, Mario and his Mushroom Kingdom pals can now eat special cherries to spawn multiple clones. What’s that? Five Marios making it rain fireballs? Awesome!

Mario’s also got other powers, such as pick-ups that will disguise him as a Goomba or transform him into a brick that can shoot cannonballs, hover with a helicopter propeller, or leave a trail of coins wherever he runs. Of course the Tanooki suit is back, as is the Boomerang suit from Super Mario 3D Land. Check ’em all out in the new trailer and screenshots from this morning’s Nintendo Direct.
