Nintendo has released a new Dr. Mario World trailer for the upcoming smartphone game, this time focusing on character abilities and the new assistant feature.
Specifically, the trailer covers Dr. Mario, Dr. Yoshi, Dr. Bowser, and Dr. Bowser Jr. and the different abilities each possesses. For example, Dr. Mario wipes everything on the lowest row of the board, while Dr. Yoshi removes three objects at random. It was also shown that certain characters have different abilities depending on the mode you play. For instance, Dr. Bowser can eliminate two rows at random during normal stage mode, but can only clear one row at random during versus mode.
The trailer also revealed a new mechanic to the game: assistants. They work as support characters that provide secondary skills and bonuses during gameplay. Up to two assistants can be chosen at a time, which consist of classic Mario enemies and secondary characters such as Shy Guy, Goomba, Cheep Cheep, and Piranha Plant.
