Nintendo takes a bold step back in the narrative space with the new, surprisingly super trailer for the world greatest Italian plumber (who now sounds like Chris Pratt) – Super Mario. And not gonna lie, it is the King Koopa that has got me hyped.
And the full lore of The Super Mario Bros. is in full display, including Luigi’s Haunted Mansion, so there is seemingly something for everyone.
And it’s also worth saying that Illumination brought out the fire-flower power in the animation department, a huge step above their last souls outing with the Minion animation.
