Super Mario Bros. Wonder was a surprise reveal at the latest Nintendo Direct, but it has become the highlight of the showcase. 

Super Mario Bros. Wonder was unveiled at the end of the Nintendo Direct June 2023, alongside Pikmin 4. The game teased silly new tactics and power-ups in 2D visuals that Mario fans are accustomed to.

Nintendo has torn the curtain on Switch-exclusive 2D Super Mario Bros. Wonder, starring new playable characters, power ups, mechanics, and more.

A brand new 2D side-scrolling Mario is coming out after nearly a decade to Nintendo Switch on October 20, 2023.

The game is easily one of the biggest Switch-exclusive releases in 2023, and players would want to grab a copy ASAP. Fortunately, Nintendo has opened pre-orders on the Nintendo eShop and in the My Nintendo Store on

All the power-ups in Mario Bros. Wonder

Nintendo’s new Mario game is quite similar to the earlier renditions, so what sets it apart? Super Mario Bros. Wonder has Wonder Flowers that add a new variation and a silly twist to the gameplay. 

Mario can acquire Wonder Flower during the gameplay, which works like a power-up. Picking up the giant flower would change the gameplay and map appearance with wild hurdles, stampedes, and even twisting the metal pipes.

Mario Bros. Wonder

Yes. Super Mario Bros Wonder would have multiplayer. It supports up to four players at a time. 

A short clip in the trailer has as many as four Yoshi characters in one game. This means that the game allows support for up to four players. Not just that, players can pick four different Yoshis at the same time, which is incredible. 

So, that’s all you need to know about Nintendo’s upcoming 2D Mario game before it releases in October 2023.
