I really enjoyed the additional Bowser's Fury story. It controlled very simlilarly to Odyssey. Bowser Jr. served as a great replacement for Cappy as far as accessibility is concerned. Depending on how much you set him to assist you, he will help by attacking enemies in your vicinity. With him set to "Help A Lot", he will attack enemies at a greater range, and will also do a swipe attack whenever you press Y, which covers for any accuracy complications a player may have.
The power-up system was also fun to engage with. You are given a random power-up when you reach 100 coins, as well as being able to find different power-ups in blocks during play. You have an inventory that caps out at 5 of each one, and one is consumed when you select it to use from the inventory. I found this to encourage experimentation with power-ups without making the player feel like they ever wasted one if they selected the wrong one for a puzzle.
The open world that fills in and alters as you progress was also fun to explore and progressively unlock.
I can see a full game with these mechanics and design choices being very fun to play. This very much feels like a fun experiment for a greater concept that may be in the works.
3D world is an incredible game with a ton of great levels and so much to explore! So many worlds and a lot of fun (especially for newcomers, who never had a Wii U!) There is also a whole new world, Bowser’s Fury, which is like another game for people to try and have a lot of fun with! 2 games at the same price is a great idea and I love this game with all of its entirety!
