You Can Still Get Exclusive Super Mario Bros. Wonder Preorder Bonuses And Release-Day Delivery

Super Mario Bros. Wonder launches on October 20 for Nintendo Switch.


If you haven't preordered your copy of Super Mario Bros. Wonder yet, there's still time to take advantage of retailer-exclusive preorder offers at multiple stores. Super Mario Bros. Wonder releases exclusively on Nintendo Switch this Friday, October 20. Release-day delivery is still available at Amazon (as of October 18), though you're running out of time to ensure you can start playing on Friday. Not sold on the latest Mario game? Check out our Super Mario Bros. Wonder review, which awarded the charming new evolution of the classic side-scrolling format a 9/10.

Mario will find himself in the nearby lands of Flower Kingdom, because, rather shockingly, Bowser is up to no good again. This time he steals the mythical Wonder Flower. You will work your way through seven worlds of side-scrolling levels either solo or cooperatively with up to four players. The aforementioned Wonder Flower will manipulate the world around you in some cool ways.

Numerous iconic Super Mario characters are playable, including Luigi, Peach, Toad, Daisy, Nabbit, and Yoshi. If you play co-op with Yoshi, you can hop on the dino's back, Yoshi's Island-style. Yoshi will even carry other Yoshis or characters who obtain the power-up that turns them into a bulky elephant. Like other recent Mario games, a couple of the characters--Nabbit and Yoshi--are beginner-friendly and don't take damage from enemies.

Super Mario Bros. Wonder supports local and online co-op. It also has an optional community-focused system that allows you to see other players who are currently playing the same stage. With the help of Friend Rooms, you can race against your buddies to see who can reach the goal the fastest.
