95983 Co Op Play 01

Just recently we published our preview of Super Mario 3D World, and rather liked what we played. Our experiences so far give us optimism that it'll stack up in single and multiplayer; naturally the latter will be suitably chaotic but, potentially, a huge amount of fun.

Nintendo of America's latest Nintendo Minute video tries to show just that, with four staff members taking on levels 1-1 and 3-1, and in the process gives a good indication of the dynamics of multiplayer in the title. What may start as earnest co-op can quickly become competitive, which is a hoot assuming it's with family and very good friends.

Early next week our very own Martin Watts will share some personal reminiscences of playing multiplayer with the humble writer of this very article. Character assassination is, apparently, very much on the agenda.

Check it out below and let us know what you think.
