It’s an excellent time to be a Super Mario fan! The Super Mario Bros. Movie has surpassed every Disney movie but one to be one the second highest-grossing animated film of all time. (Disney CEO Bob Iger even took time from the second quarter earnings call to congratulate Universal on the win). Universal Hollywood has opened Super Nintendo World, and it’s getting rave reviews. Universal Orlando is currently in the process of building their own Super Nintendo World, and we are absolutely rapt with delight. It just couldn’t get better for Mario fans…could it?  

As it turns out, it could. Today we discovered that a brand new Super Mario game is set to be released in just a few short months! Super Mario Bros. Wonder will be a 2D game that takes everything you love about Maejo and adds its own unique twist. Mario can turn into an elephant now. I mean, do I really need to say more? The new game is especially exciting because it marks the first new Mario game to be released since 2017!

The official synopsis from Nintendo reads:

Step into a world of wonder in Super Mario Bros. Wonder for Nintendo Switch!
Classic Mario side-scrolling gameplay is turned on its head with the addition of Wonder Flowers! These game-changing items trigger spectacular moments you have to see to believe. Witness pipes coming alive, wreak havoc as a giant spiky ball, and see even more unexpected events called Wonder Effects.

This game looks whimsical and just perfect for that Disney/Mario crossover fan. From bright colors to dancing fountains and even magic flowers, this game looks like a ton of fun for everyone. It is a traditional side-scrolling Mario game, but despite that, there are some surprises in store! New features combined with an old-school look will make this game worth buying. Check out the official trailer from Nintendo here: 


If you’re ready to get your hands on Super Mario Bros. Wonder, you’ve got a little while to wait. The game is set to be released on October 20, 2023. In the meantime, you can get your Super Mario fix with Illumination’s The Super Mario Bros. Movie, which is already available on DVD! You can also pre-order the Nintendo Switch exclusive game directly from Nintendo here.
