Story Overview

Unlike some previous Mario Bros. installments, Wonder will not be starting from the Mushroom Kingdom. Instead, the Flower Kingdom is the starting point. Mario and friends have been invited by the kingdom’s Prince Florian. Of course, with all Mario games, Bowser makes an appearance, and as he touches the Wonder Flower, he ultimately fuses with the Flower Kingdom’s castle. Now it’s up to Mario and the gang to head out and stop his plans once more.

The Land of the Flower Kingdom

The Flower Kingdom promises some really exciting locations to explore and adventure through. The Flower Kingdom is separated into seven different areas. Mario is able to actively move around the map like in previous Mario Bros titles. Furthermore, players have the ability to walk through certain portions of the world map, similar to Super Mario World 3D. The world has many different obstacles for players to make their way through, so there shouldn’t be a lack of interesting content.

The Bubble power-up gives players the ability to capture and defeat enemies from a distance in bubbles. Mario can use the bubbles to reach higher locations as well, allowing for some fun mobility.

The Drill power-up will enable Mario and friends to protect themselves from spiky enemies from above. The drill allows players to drill down, burrow underground, or even burrow into the ceiling up above.

Possibly one of the more interesting powers on this list is the Wonder Flower. Players can use this flower to cause strange things to happen in the world. Pipes will move, a wave of enemies will attack, and the world might even tilt. Players can even transform into a Goomba or a spike ball at some points with this flower. The Wonder Flower promises to bring many crazy twists to each players experience.
