Today’s Nintendo Direct saw the announcement of the next 3D entry in the Super Mario series, and it’s a successor to the 3DS’s Super Mario 3D Land.
Entitled, appropriately, Super Mario 3D World, the game features the same 2D/3D hybrid gameplay as its predecessor, with the addition of four-player co-op featuring Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad. Each character has their own style of gameplay (Peach can flutter jump, for example, while Toad runs really fast).
The game also sees a new power-up in the form of Cat Mario, which can run up walls and scratch enemies.
Super Mario 3D World will release on Wii U in December 2013.
