Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury is the game of the month for February 2021

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury is the game of the month for February 2021

After a rather crackling end of the year, this beginning of 2021 seems to be more regular in the individual releases of large caliber, which is why preferences tend to converge on single games of great appeal even in the election of the various most significant titles. This trend is confirmed by the full deal found on Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury as Game of the Month for February 2021. On the other hand, despite being essentially an expanded re-release, the Nintendo Switch game is by far the most important production released in recent weeks, but the fact is that it still turns out to be a damn fun platformer, regardless of when it is. released and how much has changed with this new version. In any case, February still presented a good amount of games spanning very various genres, including spin-offs of big names moved towards the action (Persona 5 Strikers) JRPG such as Bravely Default 2, conversions of titles known as the arrival of Nioh Collection on PC and interesting historical reenactment initiatives with Ghosts' n Goblins Resurrection and Capcom Arcade Stadium, so there were truly offers for all tastes, regardless of the common choice that emerged in terms of absolute preferences between editorial staff and readers.

The choice of the editorial staff

There were not many doubts about the winner of the game title of the month of February 2021 in the editorial survey, while curiously for the second and third place there we find ourselves faced with two equal merits, demonstrating how the votes, outside the first place, are distributed fairly evenly over several titles present on the square. The game of the month is therefore Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury and it does not rain on this: the new 3D Mario platform for Nintendo Switch is something more than a simple re-edition of the chapter released on Wii U, already excellent on its own. Beyond the graphic adaptations made, which easily bring it up to date with the latest Nintendo productions, the addition of the Bowser's Fury expansion has a great weight in the overall economy, being in all respects one of the best 3D platform experiences seen. recently.

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury presents a really thick expansion

In second position we find two games that have obtained exactly the same score, aka Persona 5 Strikers and Little Nightmares 2. The latter was particularly expected as perhaps the most promising game of the month of February 2021 and has largely repaid the expectations, but also the first of the two has kidnapped most of the editors, especially those more linked to the Atlus series and traditional Japanese titles. . Despite being an action in line with the musou style, Strikers is actually something a little deeper and more interesting than usual. Curiously, even in third place we find two games on the same step of the podium: Ghosts' n Goblins Resurrection, or the excellent remake of the great classic Capcom, and Bravely Default 2, which remains one of the best examples of classic JRPG currently available on the market.

The choice of readers

The poll released to readers was rather contested, which in any case elected Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury as the game of the month for February 2021, coinciding with the choice editorial. Mario's victory comes after the controller test probably, as usually happens with the chapters of the series, also considering that in the poll last month, the most anticipated game by readers was found to be Little Nightmares 2, in a delivery that had there was a distinct lack of enthusiasm. Tarsier Studio's fairytale / horror adventure came second, however, proving to be one of the most interesting titles of the month, a short distance from the winner. Little Nightmares 2 has been positively received by critics, confirming itself as an excellent evolution of the brilliant progenitor, and has been able to expand and enrich the particular imagery created by the team.

Immediately attached to the second position, with a difference of 1%, in third position is finished Persona 5 Strikers, another of the games considered the heavyweights of the month in question. In addition to the important name that it carries, the action game developed by Omega Force takes the characters and settings of the famous JRPG Atlus and builds on them a musou-style action game: it may seem a risky operation, but we have already seen how can adapt very well to different series, as happened with Hyrule Warriors, and even in this case it has hit the mark. Outside the podium, Bravely Default 2 stands out a little from the rest with a good amount of votes collected, but among all the result obtained by Super Seducer 3: The Final Seduction is also remarkable, which manages to get 8%, we do not know exactly if as a joke or not.
