The latest Mario release for the Nintendo Switch is a polished version of the Wii U classic, Super Mario 3D Worldwith a new extension called Bowser’s Rage, which sees you collect coins in an archipelago while skirting or fighting a kaiju-sized Bowser. At their core, though, both the port and expansion are smart platformers with plenty of charm, making them an ideal package.
