Super Mario 3D Land Pre-Order Bonus

A Super Mario 3D Land Pre-Order Goodie has been announced as a Tanooki Mario Keychain! You can snag one by reserving the game at GameStop.

Sadly that’s all she wrote, but it’s still a cool little bonus for fans of the series and an incentive to pre-order a game that pretty much anyone with a 3DS was already going to buy at launch anyway, right?

The Super Mario 3D Land release date is set for November 13th, 2011 this holiday. With a November 18th date set for Europe.

Past Mario games have let the blue-suspendered hero roam around fully rendered 3D landscapes. Now, for the first time, players can see true depth of their environment without the need for special glasses. Super Mario is a 3D evolution of classic Mario platforming featuring new level designs and challenges.

Key features of Super Mario 3D Land include:

  • 3D visuals make it easier for players to judge the depths and distances in their environments. Players can more accurately judge the jump to the next platform or how far Mario is from a question block.
  • New and familiar abilities add unique game-play strategies to the adventure. Mario can perform a rolling somersault attack or run fast with a dash move. Or, as Tanooki Mario, he can use his tail to hover, perform floating jumps or attacks.
  • The Circle Pad gives players complete control to confidently move Mario through fun and challenging environments.
  • New enemies include Goombas with tails, tall stacks of Goombas and a Piranha Plant that spits ink to obscure a player’s view.
