Unlike the older Mario video games, you have to defeat Bowser multiple times in Nintendo’s newest Wii U effort, Super Mario 3D World. Predictably, the first showdown is by far the easiest. Mario’s arch nemesis shows up with a new set of wheels, and you need to hit his ride with some kick bombs to send the big lug into orbit.
If you’re having trouble giving Bowser what for, this video will send you to World 2 in quick fashion. For more info, check out Prima’s official Super Mario 3D World guide.
