VIDEO: "Super Mario 3D World" Toys with Tricks Both New and Old

Wii U platformer arrives in North America on November 22

Nintendo had quite a few 3DS and Wii U games to cover in this morning's Nintendo Direct presentation, and they busted out release dates and trailers for a bunch of 'em. Super Mario 3D World got the full treatment, with word that the platformer is set for Wii U in North America on November 22, and a trailer that shows off new moves, power-ups, and more. 

 

 

In case you were too dazzled by the madness to grasp what's going on, among the new items is a cherry that lets characters clone themselves a few times. Kuribo's shoe from Super Mario Bros. 3 is back, too, and players will be able to disguise themselves as enemies and carry Piranha Plants. 

 

While we're on the subject of Mario, Nintendo also revealed special Mario and Luigi themed Wii Motion Plus controllers. They'll be available on November 1 for $39.99 each.
