Unlike previous entries in 2D Super Mario titles, all of Super Mario Bros. Wonder’s playable characters (with the exception of Yoshi and Nabbit who don’t take damage) will play exactly the same. Shocker, I know! That’s not to say there will be no special abilities at all. Instead, Wonder introduces a new mechanic called “Badges” which alter the characteristics of each character. Read on to learn what Badges exist in the game, and what they do.
What are Badges in Super Mario Bros. Wonder?
In a nutshell, Badges are equippable items scattered around the world of Mario Wonder that affect how your character controls in-game. At any point, Badges can be equipped to provide characters with a wide variety of abilities, ranging from floating to wall-sticking. Check out the full list of abilities below.
