How to preorder Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury for Nintendo Switch
Several Mario titles make up the best Nintendo Switch games that have released so far. Pretty soon Switch owners will be able to add yet another one. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury comes to Nintendo Switch on February 12, 2021. It's an action platformer for up to four players where Mario and friends are out to save captured Sprixies from Bowser's claws.
