Did you love “Super Mario 3D World”? Were you dying for more after finishing the game? If so, you’re not alone.
On Reddit, a user called the game “criminally underrated” and asked others if they wanted to see a sequel. In the comments, one user said, “The 4 player co-op on 3-d world was one of the greatest co-op experiences I’ve had on a Nintendo console,” to which another replied, “I don’t think I’ve ever laughed harder while playing a video game than during 4 player 3D World. It’s pure madness.” One other person in the thread stated, “I’m sure the same style will return eventually. How long though, who knows.”
While Nintendo hasn’t revealed any plans for a “Super Mario 3D World 2,” perhaps the popularity of the Switch port will encourage Nintendo to green-light a new entry in the series. As Engadget’s Chris Velazco put it, “Super Mario 3D World” was given “a second chance on the Switch,” not to mention the fact that the game is considered one of the best platformers of 2021.
Just because there’s demand doesn’t necessarily mean Nintendo will deliver. Even so, fans might very well see a new game in this style in the future.
