Mario Switch

Throw­back to the fu­ture?

Games Master - - Feature -

Not since the N64 all of two decades ago has a Nin­tendo con­sole launched with a brand new Mario game. Fit­tingly – and thrillingly – Mario’s im­mi­nent-ish Switch de­but is ru­moured to be much closer in spirit to the still-won­der­ful Su­per Mario 64 than any game re­leased since, with a sand­box hub pro­vid­ing ac­cess to a va­ri­ety of worlds, each con­tain­ing mul­ti­ple ob­jec­tives rather than a sin­gle goal pole. Nin­tendo seem­ingly won’t be aban­don­ing 3D World’s co-op com­po­nent, how­ever, though it will prob­a­bly be lim­ited to two play­ers rather than four. Plumb pud­ding never looked so de­li­cious, and March can’t come soon enough.
