Super Mario 3D Land

Hello everyone! In spirit of “Super Mario 3D World” releasing for the Wii U yesterday, I thought I would make this week’s “topic on the  “Super Mario 3D Land” for the 3DS. To start things off, I’m sure you’ve all heard of Mario, an ordinary plumber, and his daring adventures to save the one he loves: Princess Peach (Princess Toadstool is her real name). In this game you get a whole new power: The tanooki suit. Tanooki is the word for raccoon in Japanese. With this awesome power, you get to fly for short periods of time. If you die five or more times, there will be a box that you can hit. Inside is a golden tanooki power, which gives you the ability to kill enemies easily and you can’t get hurt. Of course, if you fall into lava or a hole, you will die. Now for the story line:

“Outside of Princess Peach’s Castle stands the Tail Tree, a Tanooki-tailed tree with Super Leaves on its branches. All of the Mushroom Kingdom is familiar with the tree. One night, a huge storm blows all of the leaves off, as Bowser laughs in the background.

Later on, Mario and three Toads (Red, Yellow, and Blue) go looking for the princess. Eventually, they discover that she is missing and the Super Leaves are gone too. Yellow Toad notices a hovering letter near the tree, and the group of four goes to investigate. Mario grabs and opens the letter, and a picture of Bowser holding Princess Peach with Super Leaves flying in the background pops out. The message shocks the three Toads and Mario, and immediately, Mario and the three Toads run to save the Princess. Throughout his adventure, Mario receives more letters about Peach’s predicament and about various stages of Bowser’s Super Leaf-related plan.

Becoming lonely due to Mario’s absence, Peach ultimately attempts to escape from Bowser and his army, but she is soon recaptured. Mario travels through 8 worlds and defeats Bowser, only to be tricked as Bowser escapes with Peach. Mario eventually finds Bowser’s lair, but before they can battle, the floor beneath them breaks and they fall. After being chased through various obstacles, Mario manages to press a switch making the bridge under Bowser collapse, sending Bowser into a pool of lava. At last, Mario and the three Toads find Princess Peach and, using their Tanooki powers, bring Peach back to her castle.

After that, a short cutscene appears with a letter floating down in World 1-1. It appears to be Luigi being kidnapped by Dry Bowser. Mario then sets off to save Luigi. After rescuing him in Special World 1-Castle Icon.pngCastle, he becomes a playable character.

After Mario beats Special 8-Castle, another cutscene appears. Another letter has floated down on World 1-1, and the three Toads who accompanied Mario in his adventure investigates while sporting their Tanooki forms. To their surprise, Bowser has kidnapped Princess Peach again. Then, Mario or Luigi must play World 8-Bowser's Castle2 again to defeat Bowser. After that, a letter of Peach wearing a Tanooki Suit is unlocked. Once 5 stars are present on the profile, Special 8-Crown is unlocked.

Now for my review. Overall, I would rate this game 3.5 out of 5 stars. It was an interesting game, but it got very difficult at the end.”

Thank you for reading my blog and I can’t wait to make another one! I hope you all enjoyed. For those of you in America, stay safe and have a great Thanksgiving! 🙂
