Super Mario Bros. Wonder arrives October 20 but spoilers have already leaked across social media, showing fans glimpses (or lots) of the game Nintendo would rather keep quiet.
IGN won’t reveal any of these spoilers here, of course, but wanted to offer a heads up for those looking to experience the long-awaited next-generation 2D Mario game completely fresh.
While a handful of now deleted tweets showed some glimpses at levels beyond what Nintendo has revealed so far, another main instigator of spoilers appears to be emulation. As reported by DSOGaming, players are already able to run the entirety of Super Mario Bros. Wonder through illegal PC emulation.
Nintendo understandably doesn’t take kindly to those who create such software or even leak their games. It cut ties with one publication who showed images of Pokémon Sword and Shield ahead of the games’ embargo in 2020, and recently issued a cease and desist order against Wii and GameCube emulator Dolphin over its launch on Steam.
Super Mario Bros. Wonder launches officially on Nintendo Switch, with the game debuting Mario’s new voice actor. Original star Charles Martinet announced his stepping away from the role in August.
Excitement around the game is still clear though, as Super Mario Bros. Wonder will be the first full side-scrolling entry since 2012’s New Super Mario Bros. U. Following Wonder’s announcement in June, fans quickly fell in love with the new power-up that turns Mario and friends into elephants.
