With a recent trailer and a gameplay overview video, Nintendo have shared quite a few details on the new content being added to Super Mario 3D World in the upcoming Switch release with Boswer’s Fury, but if you have a hankering for more info, they’ve got you covered. Plenty of new details describing the central gameplay loop of Bowser’s Fury have been shared on the game’s page on Nintendo’s UK website.

Bowser’s Fury will, as we know, see Bowser having been corrupted by what’s described as “a mysterious black goop”, which has turned him into “a humongous monster bent on total destruction.” Mario is, of course, the one who has to stop him, but he’s also teamed up with an unlikely ally in Bowser Jr, who’ll stop at nothing to save his father from his corruption.

Bowser’s Fury is set across a number of separate islands. Players (controlling either Mario or both Mario and Bowser Jr. in co-op) have to collect 5 Cat Shines each on each island through a number of platforming challenges. Collecting 5 Cat Shines will yield the Giga Bell, which will allow Mario to transform into Giga Cat Mario. In this form, he can take Bowser on in titanic fights. Defeat Bowser, and you unlock more new islands to head to.

Additionally, while the weather on each island will be all vibrant and sunny, time will slowly pass. The Fury Sun will rise over time, and when it does, Fury Bowser (which is what he’s called in hit mammoth form) will summon meteors from the sky and attack you with giant lasers, forcing you to find cover until the storm passes.

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury will launch for Nintendo Switch on February 12.
