Oh yeah, I already forgot that Mario 3D World is getting a Switch re-release

Bowser’s Fury is still due on February 12, 2021

Nintendo was onto something when they wrote “Meow! Don’t forget, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury launches on February 12, 2021!” in the opening line for the below trailer. Yep, I actually forgot!

It could be because it was buried in that giant 35th anniversary Mario stream, or, because it was one of the very few games that wasn’t actually coming out before the end of the year. Probably both. Alas, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, a re-release of 2013’s Super Mario 3D World with some new content, is still arriving early next year.

Nintendo is indeed reminding us with a new clip, which mostly showcases some old content (who doesn’t love that opening salvo of levels with the cat suits?), and teases of what’s to come. But mostly, it’s the cat stuff that they’re selling. Why wouldn’t they?! It’s gold, Jerry. Selling to cat lovers will never go out of style.

I’ll say one thing: they need to get the train rolling on this one. Give us new info!
