Description

Embark on a cap-tivating, globe-trotting adventure!

Join Mario on a massive, globe-trotting 3D adventure and use his incredible new abilities to collect Moons so you can power up your airship, the Odyssey, and rescue Princess Peach from Bowser’s wedding plans!

This sandbox-style 3D Mario adventure – the first since 1997’s beloved Super Mario 64 and 2002’s Nintendo GameCube classic Super Mario Sunshine – is packed with secrets and surprises, and with Mario’s new moves like cap throw, cap jump, and capture, you’ll have fun and exciting gameplay experiences unlike anything you’ve enjoyed in a Mario game before. Get ready to be whisked away to strange and amazing places far from the Mushroom Kingdom!

Features:

Explore huge 3D kingdoms filled with secrets and surprises, including costumes for Mario and lots of ways to interact with the diverse environments – such as cruising around them in vehicles that incorporate the HD rumble feature of the Joy-Con controller or exploring sections as Pixel Mario.

Thanks to his new friend, Cappy, Mario has brand new moves for you to master, like cap throw, cap jump and capture. With capture, Mario can take control of all sorts of things, including objects and enemies!

Visit astonishing new locales, like skyscraper-packed New Donk City, and run into familiar friends and foes as you try to save Princess Peach from Bowser’s clutches and foil his dastardly wedding plans.

A set of three new amiibo figures (sold separately) – Mario, Princess Peach and Bowser in their wedding outfits – will be released at launch. Some previously released amiibo will also be compatible with this title. You can tap supported amiibo to receive gameplay assistance – some amiibo will also unlock costumes for Mario when scanned!

Thumbs Up

Having just about grown up with Super Mario on the Wii, I can definitely say this game lives up to the rest of the series as well as exceeds it. Super Mario Odyssey was the entire reason I ended up buying the Nintendo Switch, and blimey was that the best decision of my life. Seriously though, if you haven't played Super Mario Odyssey yet, then you might as well sell shop and move to Antarctica.

Nintendo does it again

Will be the best game for the switch of 2018 and a real contender for best game of 2018.

Beware the MOON!!!

Reviewed by on

OK, brace yourself: I've never thought that much of Mario-games in the past. There, I've said it!!! 2D, 3D, other mashups...somehow I quickly lose interest once the difficulty ramps up. But this game has brought me around (with a little help from Mario+Rabbids, another firm favourite from recent times). Not that it's overly easy, no. Controls are just so tight that you do not mind trying things a coupe of times before it clicks. Coupled with wonderful level design, excellent music and fun new characters, this has really swayed me back to Mario-games. Might just dig into the old backlog and try some other titles now. Anyway, buy this with the confidence that you WILL be entertained! I see a good MOON rising!!!

Amazing

Reviewed by on

This is one of the best games I have played in a very long time. The complete story, graphics and game play are just out of this world. One of my favourite things about Super Mario Odyssey is the difficult level of the game. It is not entirely difficult and not simple at the same time. If you are a Super Mario Brothers lover, a Nintendo lover or even just a gaming lover, this is definitely a game that anyone should invest in!!! Very much impressed!

A Must Buy

If you own a Switch you need to own this game, just so much absolute joy while playing it.

One of the best on the switch

Reviewed by on

This game has quickly become one of my favourites on the switch. It's been fun for me (an adult) as well as for the kids in the family, playing on assist mode. I would recommend this to anyone who has a switch, since it's got some of the best music, most charming graphics, and fun & challenging gameplay around. It was probably my favourite Mario game yet.

Best Mario Ever

A Nintendo Switch Must have. Brilliant Ideas executed very well. I love how ever person plays the game differently. It always slaps that big old Nintendo Smile on my face.

Amazing nostalgic and evolutionary game

Reviewed by on

This is one of the greatest Mario games. Nintendo has perfectly combined nostalgia with trying new ideas to bring the series forward. Definitely worth the purchase for one of the best 3d platformers of all time.

Best thing since Breath of the Wild

Reviewed by on

I never got excited over Mario games, but this game is definitely worth
it, next to breath this game comes in on a very very close second.
I am enjoying myself in a way that I never have playing a Mario title.

phenominal

Reviewed by on

Easily one of the greatest games I have ever played. Beautiful culmination of every past major 3D Mario game from 64 to the galaxy series into a perfect game. Literally worth buying a switch just for this game.

Great evolution of a classic series!

Reviewed by on

This really takes Mario into the current generation in style. Everything about the games oozes with quality and attention to detail. Enough content to keep you busy for a long time!

BEST. GAME. EVER.
