Mario vs. Donkey Kong is coming to Switch on February 16, 2024

This version of the Game Boy Advance puzzle platformer includes local co-op.


If you thought Nintendo would be done with Mario games for its current console after Super Mario Bros. Wonder, you were very much mistaken. During today's Nintendo Direct, the company revealed Mario vs. Donkey Kong is coming to Switch on February 16, 2024.

It's a new version of a Game Boy Advance game that sees Mario having to recover Mini-Mario toys that his oldest rival stole from a factory. "Observation and action" is a mantra that Nintendo used during the clip, which makes sense since this is a puzzle platformer. It'll be worth taking the time to figure out exactly what's going on in a stage before you start tackling it. You'll also need to battle Donkey Kong at certain points.

This time around, Nintendo has added local co-op support. So you'll be able to bring in a friend to help you recover the pilfered toys.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong isn't the only updated version of an older Mario game that's coming to Switch, though. Super Mario RPG will hit the console on November 17.
