Super Mario Odyssey

Mario is back again!  Although Super Mario Odyssey was teased during the 2016 Nintendo Switch announcement trailer, more details have unfolded as the year has progressed.  Set to release on October 27th of this year, Super Mario Odyssey is the first 3D sandbox style Mario since the Nintendo 64 Super Mario 64 and the Nintendo Gamecube Super Mario Sunshine.  While in previous Mario title you were collecting Stars to unlock new worlds, Super Mario Odyssey will have you collecting Moons to power your airship, the Odyssey.  Not only will you have several 3D worlds to explore, you will also be able to slip into certain areas as Pixel Mario - this is similar to the gameplay of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.  Of course we can expect to see some new characters, but perhaps the most notable is Cappy.  Cappy is Mario's hat, and will help you along in your adventure with new moves such as cap throw, cap jump and capture (side note: in co-op mode, player two will play as Cappy).  As well as the game launching on October 27th, Nintendo will also be releasing a set of three amiibos - Mario, Peach and Bowser in their wedding outfits!
