Super Mario 3D World Bowser’s Fury - Announcement Trailer - Nintendo Switch

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury.

2021 was the fifth year of the Nintendo Switch as well as the first year for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. On March 31, Super Mario 3D All-Stars and Super Mario Bros. 35 were removed from stores. Third-party games for the 3DS and Wii U also released in 2021. One of the most notable events for Nintendo was the purchase of Next Level Games on January 4th, which became a 1st party developer from that point on. A port of Super Mario 3D World, called Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury was released on February 12. New Mario spinoffs and a new WarioWare game, titled WarioWare: Get It Together!, were also released. The year is also marked by new Pokémon games including the spinoff New Pokémon Snap and a Pokémon Diamond and Pearl remake called Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl and the web series Pokémon Evolutions to celebrate its 25th anniversary. Metroid Dread was finally released this year after over a decade of troubled development and multiple versions. The year also marked the return of E3 after it went missing for a year in 2020.
