Super Mario 3D World was the first title where Nintendo’s plumber could pretend to be a cat, so a straight-up port for the Switch would have been fine by us; but with Bowser’s Fury added you’re getting two separate games in one package.
Those yet to play Super Mario 3D World are in for a treat in the mould of the 2D platformers where the mascot made his name: you’re running, hopping and stomping your way through abundantly colourful, mostly linear courses as you pursue Bowser and his royal prisoner.
