Super Mario 3D World (スーパーマリオ3Dワールド Sūpā Mario Surī Dī Wārudo) is a platform game in the Super Mario series developed by Nintendo EAD Tokyo and published by Nintendo for the Wii U video game console. Released in November 2013, it is the sixth original 3D platformer in the Super Mario series. It is a sequel to the 2011 Nintendo 3DS title, Super Mario 3D Land. 3D World was acclaimed by critics, who cited level design and multi-player as outstanding aspects of the game.
On Novmeber 29th, 2013, Jirard reviewed Super Mario 3D World as a "Black Friday Special Episode." Last year, Jirard completed a brand new game, New Super Mario Bros. U, and intended to do the same for this year's Black Friday, for three years running.
Jirard gives some props to Nintendo for having a plot in a Mario game where Peach hasn't been kidnapped, harkening back to Super Mario Bros. 2. He also is thoroughly impressed with the graphics and presentation, surpassing New Super Mario Bros. U in his eyes in terms of its presentation and originality. He also loves the music, considering it was composed from the ground up, and reminds him of Disney and Warner Bros.
Jirard compliments the character system, with each character feeling unique, and having strengths and weaknesses. He also likes how chaotic the multiplayer is, but thinks it can be too overwhelming at times. The cat powerup also receives praise, as it's incredibly useful for many situations throughout the game. The bosses also interest him since they are original and rarely recycled.
Jirard finds the completion bonus to be very time consuming, due to more levels unlocking after beating the final boss, and because every level must be beaten with every character. World Crown Crown pushes Jirard to his limits. While he finds the completion aspect frustrating, the bragging rights for doing it are worth it to him.
- Jirard did a Hot Pepper Gaming for this game, praising it whilst burning his mouth by a pepper. He gave the game a rating of 5 hot peppers out of 5, and the pepper a "CHRIST ALMIGHTY out of 5."
- Every time a bit of copyrighted material is used in the episode, it is interrupted and cuts to a clip of Mario and Luigi running around as cats, with Captain Jack from Dance Dance Revolution playing over it.
