Is Super Mario Odyssey 2 Player? Yes, and Here's How It Works

Super Mario Odyssey's co-op mode makes it the perfect game to play with friend or family!

A few weeks ago, Nintendo launched Super Mario Odyssey, an ambitious open-world game set in one of the gaming community's most beloved worlds. And given the unparalleled quality of the experience, it's no wonder that the game has had a wildly successful release.

What's more, Super Mario Odyssey supports local co-operative play, allowing two people to play the game together on the couch!

In the video, the Nintendo Treehouse team shows off Super Mario Odyssey's co-op mode, demonstrating that the first player controls Mario as normal, but the second player is able to control Cappy as an autonomous character.

If you are playing as Mario, you can run, jump, and explore the world as you usually would in single player. As Cappy, you can help Mario out by looking out for enemies and other hazards, interacting with the environment, and gathering items -- the Cappy player can even do this while Mario is possessing someone (or something)!

Co-operative play in Super Mario Odyssey broadens an already awesome experience, and it's an experience that you can share.


With the holidays coming up, Super Mario Odyssey makes for a great gift for a friend or loved one -- a gift that both of you can enjoy playing together!
