Bowser’s Fury works just fine as an added bonus packaged with an under-appreciated platforming gem from the Wii U era. If you’ve never played 3D World before, this is a great chance to catch up on a fresh take on 3D Mario design.

Buy it if you missed out on any of these classic games the first time around or if you want to relive them again in a more convenient form.
