10 New Things From Super Mario 3D World Video Reveals Fifth Playable Character

We know Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad are all playable in Super Mario 3D World, but a new video today reveals that Super Mario Galaxy's Rosalina will also be a playable character.

The video also showcases other new facts and modes about the game. Some are expected, like the use of the Wii U's touch screen and mic, speed run levels, and new bosses, but there are a number of surprises. Super Mario 3D World will feature foot races (with a Mario Kart theme!), dedicated Captain Toad levels, special top-down stages, and access to the original Mario Bros. multiplayer arcade game. You can check out the full video below to see all the new reveals, as well as how they look in action.

Super Mario 3D World is coming to Wii U November 22, the same day as the release of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for 3DS, and the Launch of the Xbox One.

  • My hype for this game has crashed through the ceiling. It looks so pretty and so much fun!!!!

  • Mod

    Rosalina as a playable character is the best thing to hear.

    Have not heard from her in the game for awhile since SMG.

  • Guess I'll be getting a WiiU sooner than I thought.
  • At first i thought this game was gonna be boring because all the worlds looked the same and the focus on the cat thing wasn't very interesting... now I'm very interesed c:

  • My hype for this game cannot be contained!!

  • Please let this be a sign of Galaxy 3!
  • Dangit, I wish I could afford a Wii U. Anyone here wanna buy me one?

  • Rosalina = AWESOMENESS!!!

  • So we're all going to pretend like Pauline never existed?
  • Awesome! Rosalina is great!

  • does the Wii U play GameCube games digitally yet?
  • Rosalina's pretty rad. I approve of this Nintendo :) Hearing Galaxy's music just makes me disappointed at what I've heard of this game's soundtrack. Galaxy's music was outstanding, and I was hoping most future Mario games would go above & beyond to match or exceed that soundtrack. Finally, I wish Nintendo would really revisit Mario Bros.' design. It would make an AWESOME eShop game. It's just a simple, easy to grasp design that could be so much fun with some additions and variety, y'know? Mario Bros. Special or Punch Ball Mario Bros. for the PC-88 shows that (look 'em up on Hardcore Gaming 101), or Mario Clash for the Virtual Boy. Add in more enemies, a couple more traps, more powers, and ONLINE MULTIPLAYER AS AN OPTION, and voila! You have a fun, very competitive, chaotic multiplayer game that any Nintendo fan would download instantly. They could pass it off to a smaller, western studio as well - it's not a major production. NST (Mario vs. Donkey Kong), Next Level (Luigi's Mansion 2) or Monster Games (Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D) could all handle such a title while their bigger internal devs & partner studios focus on great retail games.
  • Can't say this makes me more excited for the game, but a larger roster in a platforming game is always welcome as far as I am concerned. Outside of Mario Party and Kart games, we rarely see any extra characters besides Mario, Luigi and the Toads.

  • OMG I can't wait for next week. This, ALBW, payday, and black friday. (Also why was this reported so late?)
  • Looks like this is going to be robust as hell, good to see they are offering a lot outside of the just the main adventure. Its like Sakurai designed this game.

  • I honestly can not choose which to play this or Zelda. Both are going to be amazing titles.
  • Dang I was hoping for wario or someone better than rosealina.... I love Mario galaxy but having her as a character seems lame to me. PS im still totally buying this game no matter what lol
  • I am prioritizing Zelda above this game.

  • We need more characters!

  • Wonder why Rosalina would decide to randomly show up ;)  She's like a less perky, less obnoxious Peach.

    But anyway, great variety.
