It’s time to address the major issue at hand.
A new side-scrolling Mario platformer is under development at Nintendo, as had been speculated before today’s Direct. Super Mario Bros. Wonder will release for Switch on October 20.
At first glance, the controversy surrounding Super Mario Bros. Marvel appears to be fresh new Super Mario, with clean, clear lines (albeit more stylized than usual) and traditional Mario motifs. Then, about halfway through the trailer, Mario gets an interesting new ability.
Here come hordes of cute sheep, and warp pipes heave and flex all over the place in a wacky dance routine. Mario and the world around him take on a new stretchy, silhouetted look.

Aside from that… There’s a globe map, and it looks like Peach, Daisy, Luigi, and Toad can be controlled individually or in a party of up to four players. Mario can become an elephant, Yoshi has joined the cast, worlds swirl, and rainbow torpedoes rain down on the planet.
It’s for Switch on October 20th and it looks fantastically absurd.
