Called the Super Mario Bros. 35 World Count Challenge, a special in-game event will allow players from all over the world to work together to complete specific goals. This all happens over a set period of time, and three events will take place between January and March.
The first event tasks players with defeating a whopping 3.5 million Bowsers over a one-week period. It will kick off on 18th January at 11pm PT, running until 25th January at the same time. To help out, the game’s Special Battle during that week will feature courses that offer “additional opportunities” to battle with Bowser.
If the grand total of 3.5 million Bowsers is reached, all players who took down at least one Bowser over that period will receive 350 My Nintendo Platinum Points as a reward. More details on the second and third challenges will be revealed at a later date.
