It was one of the great and glorious times of the 20th century, and yet, to this day, there are only two things left to save: the Earth and Mario and the Mushroom Kingdom.
We know that’s a rather bleak statement, but it’s something that’s true for almost every single game that has been released since Mario and The Great Toad of Power (1981) to date.
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins was the first game to truly explore the vast, open world that we now know as Mario and company are the sole inhabitants of the land of Mushroom Kingdom, the first two-dimensional Mario game.
It was also one of those games that set the template for how we’d all play games for decades to come, and it’s still one of my all-time favourites.
When Super Mario Land 3 arrived in 1993, the game was arguably the greatest game in the series’ history.
A remake of the original game in 3D, Super Mario 3D Land was also a hugely popular success, spawning countless sequels and a franchise that has lasted for almost three decades.
The fact that Super Mario World is so much better than Super Mario 2: Yoshi’s Island or Super Mario Sunshine, or even Super Mario Galaxy, is down to the fact that, as Mario himself famously said, “You get what you pay for”.
Super Smash Bros. is no different.
Not only does the game deliver a number of new features that allow players to enjoy a more expansive Mario experience, but Super Smash Bros’ latest iteration has managed to keep up with the times.
With a much improved visual engine, better sound, and a fresh new storyline, it feels like a natural progression for the series to continue.
This is, in fact, the case, as Super Smash Brothers 3 has also delivered a new and improved version of Super Mario Bros. Its graphics have improved, too.
Mario now has a more detailed body, which makes him look more like a real man, and he also has a new hairstyle, which now gives him a more feminine, feminine look.
New gameplay features, such as a new character and a new ability, are also now more accessible, with the ability to pick up a new item that can be used to boost a character’s stats or to boost Mario’s.
There are new enemies, too, including Bowser, a giant frog with the power to destroy everything in its path, and Yoshi, a baby, pink and fluffy Yoshi.
While there are no major new gameplay elements to speak of in Super Smash Brother 3, there is a number that have been tweaked and improved in order to make for a more enjoyable experience.
Firstly, you can now switch between a new mode called “New Challenge”, which takes place at the start of the game.
This mode is an alternative to the “Classic” mode, which is a more traditional version of the franchise.
“New Challenge” is a single-player mode that’s meant to allow players a chance to practice their smash-throwing skills, which can be a good way to get acquainted with the game’s mechanics and how they work.
Other changes include the introduction of an entirely new weapon, which has become more of a staple of the series.
Instead of using the standard Mario weapon, the New Challenge Weapon, players can now choose between a different weapon each time they play.
Another new weapon introduced is the Super Mario Powerup, which, if the Super Smash Box is unlocked, will give a character the ability at level three to jump on the back of a moving platform and fire an energy beam at nearby enemies.
Players can also use the Super Mushroom Powerup to boost the speed of their Super Mario in battle, and they can also equip it to Super Mario’s legs in order for it to jump from the ground to a different surface at will.
If players choose to level up in this mode, the Super Star Powerup will also be unlocked, which will allow players access to new and unique power-ups.
In addition, players will be able to battle against more powerful foes in the “New Challenges” mode.
You can also unlock the “Superstar Challenge” mode in which players can battle against each other in a two-on-two battle, as well as against the game itself.
Lastly, in addition to the classic “New Challengers” mode that allows players to battle the game in a one-on -one battle, there’s also the “Giga Bowser Challenge” that takes place when a Bowser has reached level six.
Although the Bowser has been defeated in the first Super Smash Battle, the battle continues to progress through a different series of stages, and players can collect new Super Star items to boost their skills.
As well as new items and abilities, there will also
