Super Mario 3D World Bowser’s Fury Mode Revealed; Giant Dark Kaiju Bowser Vs. Golden Great Cat Mario

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury

Nintendo have revealed the first gameplay of the Bowser’s Fury mode in Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury.

Announced as part of the Super Mario Bros. 35th Anniversary, the Bowser’s Fury mode raise plenty of speculation. The new trailer reveals that players must team up with Bowser Jr. in an open environment, to gather cat-like coins and avoid Cat-powered up enemies.

However, some strange dark power seems to build over time, turning Bowser into a a monstrous version of himself. Storms rage, fire rains from the sky, red-hot stone pillars slam into the ground, the cats turn evil, and metal music plays. The trailer description notes Bowser has lost control, and Bowser Jr. needs your help to stop him.

Players need to unlock the giant cat bell to turn into a giant Golden Great Ape or Super Saiyan-style Cat Mario, and fight Bowser head to head. What happens after that is unknown, as the trailer ends.

It is entirely possible that gathering more “Cat-Coins” will unlock the giant bell sooner (so Bowser will not be as strong), or improve the abilities “Golden Great Cat Mario” has. It is also unclear if this mode will be exclusively one player, or if another can control Bowser Jr. From the trailers, it seems the player controls him to attack nearby enemies, and paint over suspicious places for power-ups.

UPDATE: A press release confirms that Bowser and Bowser Jr. amiibo figures will have special activation within Bowser’s Fury. The new Cat Mario and Cat Peach amiibo will also offer in-game enhancements.
