Super Mario Grand Quest is the latest installment in the Super Mario Bros. series, set to be released in the holiday season of 2013. The game will be a 3D platformer, with features much like Super Mario 64. Super Mario Grand Quest is under development by Pixel Perfect Co.


The game will play very similarly to that of Super Mario 64. It will feature standard Mario power-ups along with a Power Flower, which gives players different special abilities. Levels will be accessed mainly by entering doors inside the hub world, Peach's Castle. Certain worlds, however, can be accessed through paintings, warp pipes, and other things. Like Super Mario 64, players will have an eight-point life meter. Similar to Super Mario 64 DS, four characters are playable, each with a different control style. Boss levels aside, Super Mario Grand Quest consists of twelve levels, with seven missions. As with most 3D Mario platformers, the object of the game is to collect stars and save Princess Peach. Super Mario Grand Quest features Speed Run missions, where the player must replay a mission in a set amount of time, Daredevil Run missions, where the player must replay a mission (or more commonly, a boss battle) with only one health point, and Purple Coin missions, where the player has to collect 100 coins in a level, sometimes with a time allotment. After all 120 stars are earned, the player can go back and fight Bowser again. When defeated, a second, more difficult quest is opened. In this version of the quest, the health meter is cut down to 4. Likewise, damage is slightly decreased. What previously would deal 2 damage only deals 1, and what dealt 3 only deals 2. Also, all enemies are now faster than previously. When 120 stars are earned in the difficult version, the Mushroom Kingdom level is opened.


  • A: Attack/Grab
  • B: Jump
  • Y: Run
  • Left stick: Move
  • Right stick: Adjust view
  • L/R: Crouch
  • L/R (in air): Ground Pound


By performing consecutive jumps, a player can perform a double or triple jump. If the player crouches and jumps, they can perform a backflip, or a long jump if they are in motion. If A is pressed three times in a row, the player can perform a kick. If the player attacks while running, they will slide. The player can perform a sliding kick by crouching and attacking while in motion.

Bowser BowserNSMBUnew Mario's archnemisis has kidnapped Peach... again. You'd think he'd learn his lesson by now.


The game opens up with an invitation to Mario and Luigi. The invite is for a party that Princess Peach is throwing. Mario and Luigi are then shown heading to Peach's Castle, secretly being followed by Wario. Right in the middle of the party, however, Bowser crashes in. Mario and Luigi attempt to fight, but Bowser drops a large Bob-omb, knocking out everyone. But in the explosion, Mario is blasted far away...

After gaining 10 stars, Mario can fight King Boo. Upon defeating said boss, the player can access more of the castle, and play as Luigi. Once 20 stars have been found, a secret section of the castle can be opened up. This grants access to a secret level, where Goomboss can be fought. Upon defeating Goomboss, Toad becomes playable. After retrieving 35 stars, King Bob-omb can be fought. When he is beaten, the top floor of the castle can be accessed. When Mario and co. collect 60 stars, the final area of the castle can be entered where the warp to Bowser's Castle is, only able to be entered by Mario. After going through the many traps in the castle, Bowser himself is fought. After Mario defeats Bowser, the princess is saved.
