Might not come as a huge surprise to anyone but I picked up Super Mario 3D World on Switch and have been enjoying it quite a bit. I've heard some folks online say that it's a bit on the easy side as a single player game and I get that. That said, I haven't found it to be that easy myself as I've been playing it co-op with a rather energetic four year old. I love the little guy but he's not great at platforming such that he dies a lot and MUST always be the first to get "the kitty suit." So yeah, it's fun playing Mario with your kids but playing Mario co-op with little kids might be the Dark Souls of trying to have fun playing video games sometimes. Let this scenario wash over you "Daddy I don't want to go there. Hey buddy ok let me carry you over there. Thanks Daddy. *he pushes a button and jumps out of my arms and falls off a cliff* Daddy I lost the kitty suit. Ok buddy hold on let me use the extra we have ok come get it. Daddy I can't come get it, Daddy I can't go over there. Ok buddy let me help you there *falls off a cliff* Ok no problem buddy let me pop the bubble there and throw you at the kitty suit. YAY I'm the kitty again, I love being the kitty. *falls off a cliff* Daddy I need the kitty suit."

Frankly I think Super Mario 3D World is the right kind of difficulty for how I play it, but I can see where some gamers might need more of a challenge. If you are a challenge seeker Super Mario 3D World might not be for you but having kids might help you get there.

Oh and we haven't played Bowsers Fury yet but I imagine we'll get there after we complete Super Mario 3D World. We just got to the mid point in World 3 even if the game feels like a continual hunt for the kitty suit.

Is Bowsers Fury a completely separate game?

Yep. You need to buy Super Mario 3D World on Switch and it runs on the same engine but it's a totally separate thing you select at the menu of the game.
