Ugh, Super Mario Odyssey’s going to be really good, isn’t it…? At gamescom 2017 in Germany, Nintendo took the stage at their booth and revealed some brand new gameplay for Super Mario Odyssey.
The video debuts the first pure gameplay we’ve seen for the Luncheon Kingdom. The music, visuals, animations and mechanics on display here really are on a whole new level.
We also see first-hand that some areas of the Luncheon Kingdom are off limits unless Mario’s donned the appropriate costume. In this case, it’s the chef’s outfit. Given that this world is one based on food and cooking, it makes sense that Mario would wear the white hat, shirt, pants and red scarf to gain entry to a room.
The world-specific outfits are purchased with world-specific currency, so Mario Odyssey will require some level of collection in order to see and get everything. I like it that way.
Super Mario Odyssey is bound for the Nintendo Switch on October 27, 2017. This game really looks special. Keep an eye on it.
