|Super Mario Moose|
|December 31, 2015|
|Predecessor||Super Mario 3D World|
|Successor||Super Mario Moose Deluxe|
Mario, Luigi, Yellow Toad, Blue Toad, and Peach are walking through Moose Meadows when they hear a roar. Bowser falls from the sky, capturing all the moose and Princess Peach herself. Bowser then hops on to his airship and fly's to his castle. Mario runs after him, and the others run with him.
Super Mario Moose is a 3D platformer, similar to Super Mario 3D Land and Super Mario 3D World. Like past games, Super Mario Moose has an open world (though with a obvious path), a Goal Pole, and a time limit. Star Coins are in the game, with three being in every level. These can be used to unlock levels in the two secret worlds.
Super Mario Moose allows up to four players to play at once, using Mario, Luigi, Yellow Toad, and Blue Toad as playable characters. If someone wants to join or drop out, they just need to go to the menu and drop out or drop in. Like past games, players can enter bubbles and pick up/throw other players. Unlike Super 3D World, each player has a separate amount of lives.
Super Mario Moose has 9 main worlds, along with two bonus worlds. Each of the main worlds have six levels, with five regular levels and one fortress. The bonus worlds have seven levels, with five regular levels and a castle and a fortress. Toad Houses reappear in the game, and Enemy Blockades return from Super Mario 3D World. When the player collects all 3 Star Coins in a level, a bar at the top of the screen will show the 3 coins for the level.
