Super Mario Bros. Wonder: Release date, trailer & playable characters
Super Mario Bros. Wonder is nearly here and not only do we have a release date for the game but also a good look at gameplay and the characters we will be playing as.
This is the first original 2D Mario game released on the Switch, despite the console, coming out in 2017. It also means that this year, we will get two different Mario games alongside the release of the Super Mario RPG.
So let's dive into everything we know so far about Mario's latest adventure.

Super Mario Bros. Wonder playable characters
So far, we have seen:
- Yellow Toad
- Blue Toad
- Red Yoshi
- Yellow Yoshi
- Light-Blue Yoshi
These are all of the playable characters announced during the Nintendo Direct where we got a deep dive into the game. We also learned that all the power-ups in the game will work with each of the characters in the game. So if you want Drill Toad or Elephant Daisy then the game delivers.

Super Mario Bros. Wonder trailer
The new Super Mario Bros. Wonder trailer shows off the levels Mario and Co. will be exploring during the game; with wriggling pipes, rolling balls, and more hectic stages than we have seen before.
The whole game is accompanied by a pastel colour palette, whilst some stages look to take away our senses by plunging the game into darkness. The trailer looks to have local multiplayer too, so you can play the game with a buddy.
In the Super Mario Bros. Wonder Direct, we learned about all of the new characters as shown above. The direct also gave us a much better insight into the powers in the game, as well as how multiplayer will work.
This will be the first new 2D Mario in over ten years, and something the fans have been clamouring for. Hopefully, we will learn even more soon and if not it won’t be long until we can play the game for ourselves.
