SUPER MARIO ODYSSEY
THE STAGES LOOK LIKE COLOURFUL BACKGROUNDS WITH NO BOUNDARIES IN SIGHT
Super Mario Odyssey is the next adventure for everyone’s favourite plumber – only this time, Mario is leaving the Mushroom Kingdom behind for the real world (and plenty of others). There’s also Bowser, dressed to the nines like a pimp. And oh yeah, Mario’s hat now has eyes on it. Yup, Mario’s next 3D adventure, due on the Switch in late 2017, sure looks different.
Like Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Odyssey is giving players a variety of sandbox worlds to explore. Beyond that, it’s mostly what you’d expect: Mario hopping and bopping through colourful environments, “yippee”-ing and “wahoo”-ing along the way.
Taking in the sights and sounds of a fresh Mario platformer is always exciting, but Super Mario Odyssey looks truly out there (in the best way possible). The sprawling stages look like colourful playgrounds with no boundaries in sight, and the additional mobility options provided by Mario’s cap - like throwing and jumping on it as a makeshift platform - should expand your exploration capabilities even further. Plus, you’ve got Bowser dressed up like a magician cavorting around a NYC-esque metropolis called New Donk City. What’s not to like?
