Check out the new information revealed about Super Mario Odyssey in September 2017’s Nintendo Direct. Spoiler alert – it looks amazing.
New information about Mario’s upcoming adventure was revealed during the presentation, including more story details, locations and modes. Additionally, Nintendo also announced a special hardware bundle that includes a download code for the game and Mario-themed red Joy-Con controllers. A Nintendo Switch Carrying Case (Super Mario Odyssey Edition) & Screen Protector set will also be available.
Use amazing new abilities—like the power to capture and control objects, animals, and enemies—to collect Power Moons so you can power up the Odyssey airship and save Princess Peach from Bowser’s wedding plans!
Thanks to heroic, hat-shaped Cappy, Mario’s got new moves that’ll make you rethink his traditional run-and-jump gameplay—like cap jump, cap throw, and capture. Use captured cohorts such as enemies, objects, and animals to progress through the game and uncover loads of hidden collectibles. And if you feel like playing with a friend, just pass them a Joy-Con controller! Player 1 controls Mario while Player 2 controls Cappy. This sandbox-style 3D Mario adventure—the first since 1996’s beloved Super Mario 64 and 2002’s Nintendo GameCube classic Super Mario Sunshine — is packed with secrets and surprises, plus exciting new kingdoms to explore.
Super Mario Odyssey is coming to the Nintendo Switch on October 27th 2017.
