Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury received a new trailer Wednesday showing off the features that will be available in-game when it launches Feb. 12.

Nintendo originally released Super Mario 3D World for the Wii U. The game is a 3D take on the classic Mario formula, challenging players to traverse obstacle courses to reach the goal post at the end. Mario, Luigi, Peach and Toad are all playable characters, each with their own play style.

Mario, as usual, has balanced stats. Luigi can jump higher than the other characters. Peach is able to float for a brief period after jumping. Toad can dash faster than the other characters.

Super Mario 3D World also introduced the Super Bell, which allows Mario to transform into Cat Mario. This allows him to climb walls, scratch enemies, dive in mid-air and slide around. It's one of several power-ups available in-game.

Super Mario 3D World features co-op for up to four player local and online multiplayer and a photo mode.

Unlike Super Mario 3D World, Bowser's Fury is a new release. Set in a kingdom of cats, the story sees Bowser Jr. team up with Mario to take down an unusually angry Bowser. Although many of the mechanics are carried over from Super Mario 3D World, Bowser's Fury adds Bowser Jr. as a co-op character to help Mario on the journey.

Fury Bowser will periodically appear and transform the game world, attacking the player until a timer runs out.

To win the game, players must collect Cat Shines to unlock the Giga Bell, which transforms him into Giga Cat Mario and allows him to battle Bowser.
