In Bowsers Fury, Marios world and open worlds breathe new life into each other – Eurogamer.net

A good friend of mine when told me that when Mario 64 came out, people ended up being effectively consumed with Mario falling asleep. With Mario it was more of an impulse thing. Mario’s world was suddenly a location.
For me, it wasn’t Mario 64 so much as the Mario Kart video games. Up until now I was never able to discuss why they didn’t feel like this – why they didn’t feel like a Mario platforming experience in a Mario Kart level. Bowser’s Fury is an add-on to Super Mario 3D World, and I am presently consumed by it.

And there’s something else, maybe. Series like Assassin’s Creed and Watch Dogs never get to take advantage of this uncommon reality: there is something very enticing about an open-world view into a game series that has actually previously not been open-world. Bowser’s Fury is partly powered by novelty, partially by familiarity, and partly by the day-and-night cycle thinking: it’s Mario with larger video game concepts in it, and it’s also those larger game concepts given the Mario believed process.

A pal of mine when told me that when Mario 64 came out, individuals became appropriately consumed with Mario falling asleep. For me, it wasn’t Mario 64 so much as the Mario Kart video games. Up up until now I was never ever able to describe why they didn’t feel like this – why they didn’t feel like a Mario platforming experience in a Mario Kart level. Bowser’s Fury is an add-on to Super Mario 3D World, and I am presently obsessed by it. I understand, deep down, that this is a pipe level, the same way that there are plenty of levels built around a single concept in Mario 3D World itself.
