What’s a Nintendo E3 event without a bit of Mario or Nintendo magic? What we can all witness here together is a bit of Mario magic with Super Mario Odyssey, a 3D platformer for the Nintendo Switch. Coming October 27th, the game looks like an absolute blast and is as charming as ever for a Mario title.
The trick to Super Mario Odyssey is Mario’s famous red cap. His hat has a power, and Mario is able to throw it at enemies or other characters and control them. It’s rather fascinating. Take control of a Koopa or a T-Rex, or even a Bullet Bill or human being in the city, and unlock new ways to explore and enjoy the game.
“Use his incredible new abilities to collect Moons that power up your airship- the Odyssey, and rescue Princess Peach from Bowser’s wedding plans!”
You can argue all you want how it’s just another Mario game, but it looks like Nintendo pulled out all the stops with this one. Just look at the screenshot below, which features 2D Mario running along the texture of a wall. You can see a similar clip within the trailer above too. This looks fantastic!
