Release Date: 27th October 2017
Join Mario on a massive, globe-trotting 3D adventure and use his incredible new abilities to collect Moons so you can power up your airship, the Odyssey, and rescue Princess Peach from Bowser’s wedding plans!
This sandbox-style 3D Mario adventure – the first since 1997’s beloved Super Mario 64 and 2002’s Nintendo GameCube classic Super Mario Sunshine – is packed with secrets and surprises, and with Mario’s new moves like cap throw, cap jump, and capture, you’ll have fun and exciting gameplay experiences unlike anything you’ve enjoyed in a Mario game before. Get ready to be whisked away to strange and amazing places far from the Mushroom Kingdom!
Explore huge 3D kingdoms filled with secrets and surprises, including costumes for Mario and lots of ways to interact with the diverse environments – such as cruising around them in vehicles that incorporate the HD rumble feature of the Joy-Con controller or exploring sections as Pixel Mario.
Thanks to his new friend, Cappy, Mario has brand new moves for you to master, like cap throw, cap jump and capture. With capture, Mario can take control of all sorts of things, including objects and enemies!
Visit astonishing new locales, like skyscraper-packed New Donk City, and run into familiar friends and foes as you try to save Princess Peach from Bowser’s clutches and foil his dastardly wedding plans.
A set of three new amiibo figures (sold separately) – Mario, Princess Peach and Bowser in their wedding outfits – will be released at launch. Some previously released amiibo will also be compatible with this title. You can tap supported amiibo to receive gameplay assistance – some amiibo will also unlock costumes for Mario when scanned!
Get ready to jump into exciting adventures and a world of cryptic Kingdoms in Super Mario Odyssey for Nintendo Switch. The latest quest sees Mario explore a unique 3D world facing challenges and meeting familiar and new faces along the way.
This time Mario returns with plenty of unique tricks up his sleeve. The infamous red cap now plays a crucial part in Mario’s adventure. Enter Cappy, a small ghost who now finds himself as Mario’s hat. His new friend (sorry Luigi) provides quirky gameplay giving gamers the ability to temporarily control living and non-living things. The new duo take on a journey together, exploring the Odyssey and solving puzzles along the way.
Another new feature for those who love to be creative is ‘snapshot mode.’ During the game, players can stop the action, rotate landscapes and snap a picture. They can then modify with colour and distortion before sharing with their friends on social media. This new imaginative feature will no doubt lead to a barrage of Mario gameplay images shared online.
The fun doesn’t have to stop at single-player mode. Join in with friends and play as Mario and Cappy together. Unique to the Nintendo Switch, gamers have the ability to play in co-op mode by using single Joy-Con controllers, so there’s even more hours of discovery to be had.
For the biggest of fans, Super Mario Odyssey Amiibo’s will be released alongside the game in individual characters or as a set. As shown in early trailers, all 3 characters: Mario, Princes Peach and Bowser don wedding attire. Used in the game, each Amiibo activates their wedding outfit as well as unlocking temporary bonus’.
Nintendo have stayed true to their roots and included classic Mario gameplay. In some challenges a classic 2D flattened Mario appears to make his way through the level and onto his next adventure. Donkey Kong fans are also in for a surprise with the familiar Donkey Kong backdrop appearing in a stage of the game. Join everyone’s favourite plumber and immerse yourself in the most impressive 3D Mario game so far.
