Video: Watch Japanese Comedy Duo Yoiko Play Through Bowser’s Fury


If our own 10/10 review wasn’t enough for you, perhaps Nintendo Japan’s video of Bowser’s Fury – played by popular comedians Yoiko – will convince you whether or not to buy the game.

The 20-minute-long video shows Shinya Arino and Masaru Hamaguchi making their way through various obstacles and battles in the Switch-only expansion for Super Mario 3D World, which the pair played last week. We estimated the game’s length to be around 3-4 hours, so this 20 minute video is only a wee snapshot of the full power of Bowser’s Fury.

As a pair, Arino and Hamaguchi play through the co-op mode of the game, which has Bowser Jr. helping Mario in his quest to defeat Papa Bowser, who’s gone all… big. And evil.

If you don’t speak Japanese, but you’d like to know roughly what Yoiko are saying, then you can turn on auto-translate captions in the YouTube settings. It’s not… perfect, but at least you won’t be completely missing their banter.

Is this insight into the gameplay of Bowser’s Fury the thing you needed to finally purchase the game? Or did our review convince you of its merits already? Let us know in the comments.
