It'll definitely be at least an hour. Look at how big it is! There's boss fights, as shown in the trailer, and possibly separate areas inside the light houses. Also, loads of 'hidden' collectibles you can see throughout the trailer, that clearly require a bit of thinking in order to reach.

I'm guessing about 1.5-2 hours to finish.

What kind of hidden collectibles do you mean? I doubt the light houses have separate areas inside. ūüėē

There are several examples in the trailer where the cat coins are placed in obviously hard-to-reach places. A bit like blue coins in Mario Sunshine.

I simply mean that it won't be a case of running straight through a level and finishing it very quickly. They're putting some need for exploration and experimenting in there too, like with the Odyssey type games. That makes it take a bit longer. Especially on your first playthrough.

I just assumed that multiple (5?) cat coins add up to one "cat sprite", which you need to unlock the giant bell. Similar how in Odyssey 5 moon shards add up to one moon.

If it is anything like that, there'll be enough available fairly easily but if you want to collect the rest, they're increasingly difficult....

We'll just have to wait and see. But my theory is, that all available cat coins are necessary to open the light houses, which in turn unlock the giant bell.

@BongoBongo In that scene where they show the snow island with the bell, take a quick look at the bell itself. It's resting on a podium that really doesn't follow the same structure as the first bell. Not to mention, the layout of the island and puzzles on it don't match. In the promotional images, they even show a shot of the first island, with the snow one in the background, and they even basically confirm there's multiple islands in the overview trailer that came out today.

(Insert creative or cool phrase here.)

Do you guys think they need to let Bowser J be playable in more mario games?

@VoidofLight they explicitly confirmed in the trailer today that you unlock ‚Äúthe giga bell‚ÄĚ which implies there is just one

@BongoBongo But there are more than just one. Two were shown in the trailer itself. One on the snowy island, and one on the normal one. Unless it snows on the island in the game, which I doubt, then why is there another? I'd post images to compare the two bells and prove my point more, but I don't know how to post images here.

I was thinking of those cat coins, not the shines. They don't look "hidden" per se, but they do look like they're deliberately hard to reach in some situations.

@Dezzy
Oh, so you don't think that like 5 cat coins will get you one Cat Shine, like it was in Odyssey?

Went ahead and preordered the game. Now I just have to think of whether I want to replay 3D World or jump straight into Bowser's Fury. lol

I dunno exactly what they'll do! They seem like a separate thing though.

Someone has pointed out that there are multiple of those giant cat bells as well. I hadn't realized this. So now my theory is that you fight Bowser multiple times throughout the game, and each time in unlocks a new part of the map that was hidden in that black sludge. That seems like the most Nintendo approach to it.

The wait is almost over, finally. Since day one I hoped for a port of the Wii U game. Bowser's Fury looks really promising.

@Dezzy
In the link I posted above it says that there will be multiple islands. So maybe there will be one giant bell on each of them?

dionysos283

I believe the website confirms you have to fight Fury Bowser multiple times, so seems about right.

@dionysos283

Multiple islands is a bit ambiguous though. We already know it's divided into different islands from the footage. But do they mean groups of islands that compose separate stages, or something like that?
