Ten new things you can do in the upcoming Wii U game.

Super Mario Galaxy princess Rosalina will be an unlockable fifth character in Super Mario 3D World, due out on Wii U next Friday.

Nintendo released a trailer today detailing ten new things about the game. We’ve listed them below, though some might be considered a tad spoilerish.

  1. Interact with stages using the touchscreen and microphone
  2. Catch a ride on the Golden Train overflowing with coins
  3. Captain Toad levels: Collect five stars in a puzzling 3D world without jumping
  4. Speed-run to the end of levels with the clock set to 100
  5. Complete rapid-fire challenges for green stars in mystery houses
  6. Take on a giant boss as an ever-growing army of clones
  7. Cut down waves of enemies in an old-school top-down shooter stage
  8. Dash to the finish Mario Kart-style in a kart-style stage
  9. Unlock the game Luigi Bros. if you have New Super Luigi U save data
  10. Unlock the fifth character Rosalina from Super Mario Galaxy and use her spin attack

Watch the new trailer below. View screenshots of Rosalina at the gallery.

    Isn’t Rosalina pretty much God in the Mario universe? I expect her to be broken.

    • SuperLuigi

      Kind of. She’s more of a garden angel. The only thing she made was parts of the observatory.

    I expect this game to move a couple WiiU or so, it is looking like the best Mario game in a good while.

    :U okay, I need a wii U pronto

    • JoJo_649

      I second that, originally waiting for Smash and Mario Kart 8 next year… but i NEED IT NAOH!!!

  • Claude

    Okay, I wasn’t expecting that. But I welcome it with open arms!

  • Elvick

    Good, she’s one of the few characters from the main series that is actually interesting.

  • AdamBoy64

    Cool. I can’t say I’m a big fan of Rosalina, but any sort of unlockable content like that is welcome.

    Really looking forward to this. Only a bit over a fortnight to go.

    Thank you Sal for mentioning the 10 things were a bit spoilery.
    It’s interesting that Nintendo decided to even mention Rosalina was unlockable.

    It’s the sort of thing that would have been brilliant to find out by yourself. Sort of like what happens when you get all 120 stars in Galaxy, it’s that sort of level.

    Perhaps they wanted to spill the beans because they thought Rosalina would get more people interested in the game.

    They should also include Daisy as a secret unlockable character so that she can be in games other than Mario Party, Golf, Basketball, Football, Tennis…

    I don’t think she’s been in a main title for a long while
