Super Mario 3D Land Fans Should Watch this Video

Nintendo’s official YouTube channel shared the second volume of Super Mario 3D Land‘s “Super Plays” in the series’ second week. The original volume released last Wednesday and is no less impressive.

If you own a Nintendo 3DS, the best advice I can give you is to pick up Super Mario 3D Land if you haven’t already. The game is an instant classic that calls back some of Mario’s best franchise moments while creating brand new sequences that deserve exploration all on their own. What the video above evidences best for viewers is that this Mario title is deeper than it seems at first glance.

I played through the title twice, aiming to collect every Star Coin on every level, and most of the tricks in the video above were completely new to me. In the world of platforming, techniques and approaches like the ones up top are a great testament to a game’s depth. If one title provides this many different avenues for play while doing so in a seemingly simplistic package, that’s a great accomplishment.

Have any of you Nintendo 3DS gamers tried some of these tricks? Or, like me, did you find yourselves a little stunned by exactly how much you realized you didn’t know about Super Mario 3D Land after watching the clip above?
