Following on from yesterday's extended Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury reveal, Nintendo has released a smattering of additional details regarding the upcoming Switch game, confirming, among other things, that Bowser Jr. - who teams up with Mario to calm down old dad - will be a playable companion in co-op mode.

That little news morsel was suspected, of course, if not outright stated, but the freshly launched Bowser's Fury website clears up any lingering confusion, writing, "Grab a buddy to play as Bowser Jr., who can fly around fighting enemies and discovering secrets in 2-player mode."
