The latest full Mario game is about to hit the 3DS and things have been surprising quiet on the report front from us. For those that aren’t aware, Super Mario 3D Land is expected out November 18th and has just gone up for pre-order. To commemorate the game’s availability Nintendo has released a trailer featuring some of the gameplay.

The video which can be viewed below shows off some of the stunning and fun gameplay features we can expect from the game, including the varying camera angles, colorful environments and the podgy plumber himself jumping around but as CVG explains, it’s the game’s power-ups that take the lime-light with the Propeller and Tanooki suits.

The Tanooki suit is the same feature that is used in Mario Kart 7. It has a tail that can be used for both offensive attacks and can also be useful when defending yourself from oncoming enemies or shells etc. The Propeller suit has been seen before, but for those that aren’t familiar with it, it’s obtained through a Propeller Mushroom and can be used to clear thick interfering fog and of course propel Mario into the air allowing him to avoid obstacles and enemies.

Another power-up that will feature in the game but cannot be seen in the trailer is the Boomerang Bros suit. It first appeared in Super Mario Bros 3 and is sure to make battling enemies that much more fun. These exciting extras that will feature in this game should make owning it a must and if that means going out and buying a Nintendo 3DS, so be it.

Go and order your copy of the game now to be sure of obtaining it when it releases next month. Pre-orders have already propelled the game into number 20 in the top 20 best-selling games chart at GameStop. Will you be adding to the sales?
