Nintendo Reveals Super Mario Odyssey
During the Nintendo Switch Presentation, Nintendo finally gave us our first in-depth look at the next big adventure in the Super Mario series, Super Mario Odyssey.
Releasing Holiday 2017, this is the first Mario game since Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine to offer an open sandbox-type experience for players to explore. In an interesting turn of events, it looks like Mario will be all over the place in his next adventure. The most obvious change is the inclusion of a more real world looking environment throughout some parts of the game, like the New York City inspired levels shown in the trailer. Hopefully this isn't too reminiscent of Sonic '06.
Notable in the trailer is Mario's new hat throwing ability, which looks to add a whole new layer to Mario's pre-existing abilities. In some pictures, Mario's hat even has some eyes where the iconic 'M' usually rests. Perhaps Mario's hat has been possessed?
While we anxiously wait for more on Super Mario Odyssey, here are some pictures of the game.
