PSA: You can select Bowser's Fury right away in Mario 3D World Switch


It's just a menu option away

So this is definitely a brief PSA post, but I thought everyone might like to know!

As was hinted recently in a Japanese tweet, it seemed like you could select the Bowser's Fury portion of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury right away, without having to clear the 3D World part. Well, that's accurate!

We've gotten our hands on a build of the game and can confirm that this is the case. If you want, you can dive right into the completely separate Bowser's Fury addon without having to worry about anything else.

While we can't give away a ton of details yet (expect our full review closer to launch), suffice to say that this was a pleasant surprise, being able to play the new content immediately. Nintendo/Monolith Soft recently did this with Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, and it's a pretty great trend. Keep it going!
