The portable console has surpassed the PlayStation 4 and GameBoy to become the third best-selling console of all time with over 122.55 units sold.

Our first choice presents you with a whole host of Mario fun in one go. Super Mario 3D World being the first part of the package, offering a range of inventive platforming levels that you can playthrough on your own or with up to three friends. We also had to mention another favourite, compact new adventure that is Bowser's Fury. Delivering a brand-new story to explore and play through as you fight alongside Bowser Jr. to takedown Fury Bowser.
