|Advice for consumers||This game was rated PEGI 7 because it features violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to fantasy or mythical beings and creatures, pictures or sounds likely to be scary to young children and non-realistic violence in a child-friendly setting or context.|
|Brief outline of the game||Mario teams up with Cappy, a floating hat, to save their girlfriends from the evil Bowser. Cross multiple lands to confront Bowser and save the day.|
|Content-specific issues||Besides the well-known Mario platformer action, this game contains violence and content that raises the game to the PEGI 7 level. One of the boss battles takes place in a nightmarish setting in which you need to climb a destroyed tower to confront a realistic looking dragon. This dragon has glowing eyes, sharp teeth and looks rather realistic. You need to dodge its lasers and circular saw lasers to remove pins from its head and stop him once this is done. Some boss battles also contain elements that are more severe than previous instalments from this series.|
|Secondary issues/information||In one of the levels you can capture a realistic looking T-rex and roam the level with it. This beast has a realistic appearance and could be seen as a disturbing element.|
Mario can also be outfitted with different costumes. The most noteworthy costume is the Zombie costume. Here Mario looks like a zombie and instead of a hat, he as an axe in his head.
This axe can be thrown, much like the hat he always wears. The reactions of the character to this action, remain the same.
