Just because New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe is the big Mario adventure out on Switch this month, it’s not the only Mario game out in January, thanks to the Western release of Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story + Bowser Jr’s Journey for the Nintendo 3DS.

So, with plenty to know about the brand new Bowser Jr’s Journey mode, and the official Nintendo site sharing plenty of new details, here is an introductory guide to the characters you can expect to encounter in Bowser Jr’s Journey:


Bowser Jr.

Lord Bowser’s only son. Rumored to be especially strong against Magikoopas.


Bowser Jr.’s attentive caretaker. Flies about on a broom, shooting off powerful attacks.
