How Mario’s taps into his ace 8-bit roots

Odyssey may be made up from a plethora of ex­pertly de­signed sand­box worlds, but the game also does an ex­cel­lent job of us­ing 2D space. Most king­doms you en­counter dur­ing the galaxy-roam­ing jour­ney house warp pipes that will trans­form Mario into his for­mer 8-bit self. The re­sult­ing side-scrolling sec­tions look fan­tas­tic con­trasted against the lus­cious 3D en­vi­ron­ments, and their in­clu­sion shows that de­spite the ad­vance of tech­nol­ogy, Nin­tendo has never for­got­ten its icon’s beloved plat­form­ing roots.
