Video: Super Mario 3D World's Chainlink Charge Level Will Test Your Skills

Posted by Damien McFerran

Make sure you grab the cat suit

Super Mario 3D World is almost with us — it launches in North America tomorrow — and to mark the occasion we're running a different video every day until the European launch, which is next Friday.

Today it's World 3-2, otherwise known as Chainlink Charge. Considering how early on in the game this level appears, it's quite tricky — as you can see from the footage below.

Nice to read that the challenge comes fairly early in this game and that NL is going to be milking the hype. Fortunately the big day is just tomorrow us North Americans!

You guys tend to kill Mario a lot.

Just a sleep, backshift work then buying a physical copy for my nephew and downloading when I get home. It's Christmas Eve already!

Edit - I just realised yous are running through already completed levels :-)

@OorWullie if you didnt notice, it was for both players and the already beat the game so it's only normal to have so many after replaying the levels

I heard the game will be on the eShop tonight at midnight EST. Anyone knows if that is true? The eShop says midnight, but not the timezone.

Wow only 15 comments? Mario fatigue must be setting in.

Maybe somebody can find a quote of Pachter saying the game sucks ;-)

Ok, maybe not, but I'm sure he'll say something about the game being too late to save the Wii U now that PS4 and X1 are out, which ties into TW's Soapbox piece yesterday.

I'm not going to watch the video now that the game is coming tomorrow. That's right; tomorrow. I want to try this challenging level myself.

@rjejr: Mario fatigue? Not a chance. I believe it's because people are skittish of spoilers, and at this point, that's perfectly understandable.

@DestinyMan - "skittish of spoilers"

Well yeah, there's that too. It's why I'm not watching, and I won't be playing for another 34 days.

@rjejr @ikki5 @withoutdk
Watching a Mario level video is a lot different than watching a Zelda video.
Mario Spoilers are only at the Beginning or the End of the game, there is NEVER anything storywise between those.
Zelda on the other hand is always filled with spoilers.

i agree... but it is fun never the less... and i have played it since i was a little n00b :P

but zelda... that is a new universe for me... my gf is introducing me as we speak... i must admit seeing the screens for the new zelda... it looks promising both in story and looks... :)

I'm a dog person but I find it really cute that Mario and Luigi just screech down on the walls in their cat suits.

@sinalefa: I live in EST timezone and download a lot of game from eShop and PSN (Digital Day One). The launch date is 3:00 AM for digital copies. But you can go to retail to get it at midnight and you beat the eShop and PSN street release date. :P

Hopefully its come earlier than 3:00 AM.

@Yukari_Sendo The invincible racoon suit and the p that takes you to the end of the level is even worse. (That should be able to disabled globally in the options or something if they must have it).

@UnseatingKDawg I hope you are right about the difficulty but I suspect you will be wrong. It doesn't even give you a harder set after you finish. (First half is as easy as ever).

Lives are pretty pointless. How many games out there make it tough to finish a game these days? The later levels in Super Mario 3D Land were some of the toughest levels I've played in recent years. I look forward to getting a Wii U one day to play this game. Nintendo are still the masters of platforming.
