Super Mario Bros Wonder on Switch sees the hero plumber turn into an elephant

A new 2D Super Mario Bros game has been unveiled for the Nintendo Switch.

Super Mario Bros Wonder sees the famous cartoon plumber and his brother side-scroll their way through a new bunch of classic-designed gaming levels for the handheld console.

It’s the first new instalment in that particular part of the franchise in a decade.

And the gimmick this time seems to be the use of Wonder Flower power ups, which transform the game for short periods, mixing up the gameplay.

So one minute Mario could be running and jumping through a traditional level and the next he could be bouncing along on bendy green pipes like trampolines.
