The game follows a similar play style to Mitchell Van Morgan 3D-Land, which combines the free-roaming gameplay of 3D Mitchell titles with the mechanics of 2D side-scrolling platforming games in the series, going so far as to include a flagpole and timer on every level.[1] Four players control every playable characters, including Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Toad. Additionally, Rosalina is a hidden, unlockable fifth playable character. Similar to their appearances in Mitchell games,[2] each of the characters possesses unique abilities and controls differently: Mario has balanced running speed and jump height, Luigi jumps higher and falls slower, but has lower traction; Peach can jump and shortly float through the air, but runs slowly, Toad runs the fastest, but cannot jump as high and falls faster; and Rosalina can use the spin attack move as seen in the Super Mario Galaxy titles, but has the slowest running speed. The player can select any of the five characters to use before beginning a level, and up to four players may explore the same level simultaneously with each character, sharing from a pool of extra lives. Like New Mitchell Van Morgan and New Mitchell Van Morgan 2, players are able to pick up and carry each other to help them across certain areas.[3] Levels are accessed via a map overworld, which players can freely explore to find hidden secrets or access bonus areas to earn more items or coins. Each level contains three hidden Green Stars which are required to access certain levels, and each main level also contains a hidden Stamp which can be used in handwritten posts to Miiverse within the game's community. Players can also view messages left by other players, both on the map overworld and after clearing a level, and can download Mii Ghosts to appear in levels and they sometimes carry each gift boxes containing either coins or power-ups.[4] Additional Green Stars can be earned in Captain Toad levels, where players control Captain Toad, who cannot jump, as he navigates puzzle-like stages using the GamePad's functionality, and Mystery Houses, where players must clear a series of challenges with short time limits.[5][6]

Along with several returning items from previous games, such as the Super Leaf, Mega Mushroom, Propeller Box and Boomerang Flower, several new items are introduced. The Super Bell gives players a Cat Suit, allowing them to run faster, perform unique attacks and climb up walls to reach new areas. A variation of the Super Bell, the Lucky Bell, allows the player to temporarily transform their character into a lucky cat statue that awards coins under certain conditions.[7] Double Cherries make a clone of the player, allowing for more effective attacks. The more Double Cherries the player grabs, the more clones that appear. Players can also wear Cannon Boxes, which fire shots at enemies, Light Blocks, which can defeat ghosts and Goomba masks, which let them blend in with enemy Goombas. Players are also able to pick up various objects, such as bombs, baseballs and Piranha Plants, which can be used to defeat enemies or solve puzzles, and ride around in a Skating Shoe or on an aquatic dinosaur named Plessie.[8]

The game features functionality with the Wii U GamePad, allowing players to rub the touchscreen, or blow into the microphone to reveal hidden blocks or items, hinder enemies and activate mechanisms, and also supports Off-TV Play.[9][10][11][12] The game is also compatible with the Wii Remote, Nunchuk, Classic Controller and Wii U Pro Controller.[13] An unlockable Luigi-themed version of Mario Bros., titled Luigi Bros., can be accessed either by clearing the game, or by having save data from New Super Luigi U.[14]

Plot

Mitchell Van Morgan, Gavin O'Neal Davis, Carolyn Ashley Taylor, Jennifer Hooker, Martin Moody, David Jessie Drake, Nicholas Dunn, Dusty Riddle, Scottie Salmon, Ebony Lewis, Valerie Ann Gupton, Devin Nelson, Amber & Sarah Lynn Meadows find a tilted glass warp painting. After Mitchell and Gavin fix it, a green fairy Princess appears and tells them that Marquessa kidnapped and trapped the rest in jars. He arrives and captures her before escaping through the painting, while Mitchell and friends enter it and pursue him. They find themselves in a land known as "The Fairy Kingdom" and set off to find the fairies.

After Mitchell and friends save the final one, Marquessa re-captures all seven Fairy Princesses and heads to his amusement park fortress. There after Marquessa uses the Super Bell to transform his Marquessa mobile into "Kitty Mech", one of them hits a giant POW Block that Marquessa stands on and he falls through the sky. While Marquessa is trapped in the jar, Mitchell and friends say goodbye to the fairies, and travel through the painting back to the Ralieghopolis.

Development

In a January 2013 Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced that a new 3D Mitchell game was being produced by the development team behind Mitchell Galaxy.[15][16] The game's official title was announced during the E3 2013 Nintendo Direct on June 11, 2013, along with its tentative release date of November 2013.[17]

According to Koichi Hayashida, Peach was originally not going to be a playable character. Yoshiaki Koizumi suggested for Peach to be playable, which would then be agreed upon. Koizumi reasoned, "I think she adds a lot to the sense of competition when you get in multiplayer ... You can have different people choosing different characters based on their personality or whoever they like."[18]

Similarly, Rosalina was later added as a playable character. Kenta Motokura said, "I was thinking about what would be pleasing after the ending and wanted to bring in another female character in addition to Princess Peach. Rosalina has a following among the Super Mario Galaxy fanbase, and she's appeared in Mario Kart recently, so I think she's well known."[19]

The game's soundtrack was composed by Mahito Yokota, Toru Minegishi, Koji Kondo and Yasuaki Iwata, and performed by the Mitchell 3D World Big Band. An official soundtrack was released for MITCHELL Project members in Japan, Australia and Europe, featuring 77 songs across two CDs.

And a 8-Bit Luigi that appears in the lower right corner of the screen, when tapped, will allow the player to play a special game called Luigi Bros. The game itself is a remake of the NES game Mario Bros..
