A new entry in the Super Mario series is upon is! We are just days away now from the glorious Super Mario Odyssey! Run, jump, and explore your way through plenty of 'Kingdoms' setup similarly to the great Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine! This is the Mario game everyone has been waiting for!
Check out Nintendo's now-famous Super Mario Odyssey 1:30~ long commercial!
And check out some of the glorious screens as well! Soon you'll be able to use the special mode found inside the game to pause the action at anytime for a photo, but you can also change the angle in anyway way also. Quite a neat feature.
Agreed. I like that so far (which for me is only the second of the main Kingdoms) that the early stuff appears to be the stuff they showed. So there's SOOO much about this game I have never seen or thought of yet. So exciting!
Hooray! The place I ordered from actually did send me a copy! I haven't gotten a notification, and my account on their website seems to be prepared to send me another copy, so I guess I'd better take care of that. But for now: Odyssey!!!
Well, so far my fears that it would feel more like Sunshine than anything else have been unwarranted. Feels more like Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Galaxy combined, with some bits and pieces from Banjo-Kazooie and Space Station Silicon Valley. Which is an awesome combination.
@cooliocuneo Awww, that sucks. Hope your copy manages to get to you soon enough.
Picked up my pre-order from Best Buy...and somehow got two of the pre-order coins. I'm gonna keep one bagged and sell it (since we're strapped for cash right now). I'm going to give it a spin in a little while. Woohoo!
What do you guys think of the motion controls? It's hard for me to reach the right analog stick in split Joy-Con mode, so I've been playing with the Joy-Con grip. I don't see much use for throwing the hat up or down, and the spin move is easy enough to pull off, but I'm missing the homing hat move a little bit--that seems pretty useful!
Loving the game so far though. Cannot wait to play more.
@Secret_Tunnel Haven't had any real trouble with the motion controls (but yeah, the throwing up and down hasn't been very useful so far), but I had gotten so used to playing with the pro controller that the joycon sticks felt overly sensitive in the beginning. But it's getting better.
Just picked up the game, but will wait till my wife is home from work to play it together. Or, in this case, "together" in the sense of she wants to watch the game because she likes Mario but not playing platformers.
Same here, Breath of the Wild was awesome cause I knew it'd never end, with Mario Odyssey knowing it'll be over in however many dozen hours makes the whole thing kinda bittersweet. I'm hoping that by the time I beat it I'm fully satisfied and don't want it go on any longer!
Haven't read or heard anything about how many hours one can expect to spend with the game, but there seems to be a ridiculous amount of content, I think. So many moons, coins and outfits and stuff to get. And I want it all.
