Following on from the other days prolonged Super Mario 3D World + Bowsers Fury expose, Nintendo has released a smattering of extra details concerning the upcoming Switch video game, verifying, to name a few things, that Bowser Jr. – who groups up with Mario to relax old daddy – will be a playable companion in co-op mode.
That little news morsel was thought, naturally, if not straight-out mentioned, but the freshly launched Bowsers Fury website clears up any sticking around confusion, writing, “Grab a buddy to play as Bowser Jr., who can fly around fighting enemies and finding secrets in 2-player mode.”
In other places, Nintendo has actually called the setting of Bowsers Fury – a “free-roaming” standalone experience packaged in with the Switch port of 2013s Super Mario 3D World – describing that Lake Lapcat is house to various islands which Mario will need to check out in order to collect Cat Shines, reignite lighthouses, and lighten up the gloomy surface.

There are also information of the amiibo assistance included as part of Bowsers Fury, although not much word on when and how often the numerous amiibo-based capabilities can be released in context of the experience. The Bowser amiibo can, for instance, be used to summon Fury Bowser, while the Bowser Jr. amiibo lets loose a powerful shockwave efficient in knocking out close by blocks and enemies. Other amiibo will also set off “different in-game surprises”.
Expect more details as Super Mario World + Bowsers Furys 12th February release date approaches. A special red and blue Mario-themed Switch will release on the same day.
