Old game, new tricks
Just yesterday we learned that Mario vs. Donkey Kong, which comes to Switch Feb. 16th, 2024, is going to offer new game modes, more levels, increased challenges and more. Today we get to see even more of that in action through some new gameplay round-ups.
This enhanced version of Mario vs. Donkey Kong offers over 130 levels and Two-Player Mode that helps you (and your friends) tackle challenges in all new ways. Also new to this version of the game are Merry Mini-Land and Slippery Summit – two worlds full of new enemies and level themes with distinct play mechanics to keep you on your toes. And if your toes are up for it, you can unlock Plus Levels and Expert Levels as you play the game to further ramp up the mayhem with new gameplay wrinkles or added challenges.
Once you think you’ve mastered all the levels, you now have the chance to play against your toughest opponent: Yourself. Mario vs. Donkey Kong will be adding a Time Attack feature so players can take turns raising their personal bar.
Of course, it’s not all a competition. Mario vs. Donkey Kong is bringing two new playing styles to the game: Casual and Classic. Play the original game in its original form in Classic or give yourself a break and tone down the challenge a bit in Casual – you’ll get the same levels, just slightly less punishing and with a few more chances for “do overs.” Remember, keep your friends close, and your frenemies closer!
