What kind of Nintendo console would it be without an exciting new Mario game? Still, the Plumber has gone to the Islands, traveled in space, and yiffed it up to save some fairy pals from evil turtle dragon; what else could he possibly do?
Hmmm (*watches Odyssey trailer repeatedly), oh, OK, so there’s that; Mario is going to juxtapose his carton-ass self against realistically proportioned human beings, and visit Mexico during the Day of The Dead -- neat.
The reveal of Super Mario Odyssey definitely left us more questions than it did answers, but the promise of an Open-world game is an especially promising one when you factor in the incredible job that was done with Breath of the Wild. From what we can gather, Mario will have his own personal airship for travel, he’ll be able to explore a variety of environments that are inspired by real-world locations like New York, and the South American jungle. He also has a weird new sentient hat that he can use as a projectile for improvised platforming during tricky jumps, and that he’s going to crash Bowser’s wedding with Peach.
The wait for the holiday may not be that long, but that could change once Nintendo spills more of its guts on this Open-World Mario adventure at this year’s E3.
