Hot on the heels of Nintendo's monstrous new trailer for Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury, the company has released a lengthier features overview trailer detailing just what we can expect from the upcoming game. For starters, the new video shows off the online co-op mode with up to four players in the main 3D World game.

As in the original release, each player can claim a different character with their own strength: Mario is an all-arounder, Luigi can high-jump, Peach floats, and Toad can dash. It also shows a new feature, a photo mode that lets you snap pictures, complete with filters and insertable stamps. The overview trailer also drops new details about the Bowser's Fury component. The open-world segment has you collecting Cat Shines scattered throughout the environment. You'll have Bowser Jr. as an automated AI companion, but a second player can join in and take over as Bowser Jr. at any time. Bowser will wake up and cause havoc on the island, changing the landscape significantly.

Ultimately your goal is to collect enough Cat Shines to earn the Giga Bell, a giant-sized Cat Mario power-up that makes him super-sized to take on the gigantic Bowser. The trailer also briefly goes over the Amiibo support, which was announced with the Bowser's Fury trailer. The game is coming alongside a new special-edition Mario Red & Blue Nintendo Switch, with a special paintjob and carrying case, for the standard $300 Switch price. Both the game and special Switch are coming on February 12. For more details, check out our Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury preorder guide.
