So Cat Mario is basically Assist Mode behind an amiibo paywall? Yikes.

Assist mode is available in the core game whenever you die a number of times.

Those cat things look GORGEOUS! Like 90's CG in a good way, love it. Also the pre-order plushes look nice but god knows I don't need any more so I'll be going for that gorgeous looking steelbook

Koopa Troopa with fur looks so incredibly wrong.

And that's all I'm contributing to this thread.

Not bought amiibo in a while but I might be tempted! Cue certain people calling this inexcusable 'pay to win'.

Why aren't they actually furry!? They should be made with felt!

Talk about a missed opportunity!

I see Shopto are also giving away the steelbook with preorders. I thought it may have been a Nintendo store exclusive. For those wanting the game and the steelbook, it's £43 on Shopto whereas it's £50 on the Nintendo store.

I wish Nintendo would make a reasonably priced, stand-alone version of Bowser’s Fury, even if had to be exclusive to eShop.
But again, they’re just not thinking of those that were onboard with the Wii U. ::shrug:

Perhaps something linked to Nintendo Switch Online?

Pay £5 - £10 and get access to Bowser's Fury as a standalone download, for the lifetime of your online subscription.

If Nintendo do decide to go the route of having gold and platinum subscriptions (as I believe @Nicktendo suggested) then something like this would be an ideal offering.

As it stands, I won't be buying Super Mario 3D World again, because as good as the extra content is, it's not worth paying £40 - £50 for, to me. :peace:

Why is Cat Peach taking a dump?
Staking out her territory, obviously.

The UK Nintendo site has sone more info about Bowsers Fury, which Gonintendo has summarised:

Quote

- Bowser has been tainted by a mysterious black goop, which turns him into Fury Bowser.

- The shell that we see Bowser trapped in is called the Fury Sun.

- The Fury Sun will always rise up near the island you're on.

- Weather will change, which indicates how much time you have until the Fury Sun emerges.

- If you’ve collected five Cat Shines on an island, you can activate the Giga Bell.

- This is what transforms Mario into Giga Cat Mario.

- Defeat Fury Bowser and he'll be sent flying back into the water, which unlocks new islands for you to explore.

This is one of the few Wii U ports I’d buy again on switch as this is my favourite 3D Mario game. I’m still on the fence about buying it again though, as Nintendo’s twitter account seemed to suggest that the new content is short.
However they have added online multiplayer so it might still be worth it for me.

Regardless, I’m glad more people will get to play it on Switch, it’s a fantastic game.

Good man!

Yeah I think they described Bowser’s Fury as “short but action packed”. I’m expecting a couple hours worth.
