Nintendo’s E3 Spotlight closed with an awesome new trailer for the upcoming Super Mario Odyssey for Nintendo Switch, which gave us an extended look at the game world and some new mechanics. The company also revealed the game’s release date for the first time: Super Mario Odyssey launches on Nintendo Switch on October 27th, 2017.
The new trailer for the game showed us a new gameplay mechanic, which allows Mario to take over enemies and objects and control them with his hat. The trailer showed Mario controlling Goombas, Koopas, Bullet Bills, and all sorts of enemies, alongside regular features of the world like posts in the ground.
In the Treehouse Event following Nintendo’s livestream, we learned that Mario’s cap in the game will be known as “Cappy,” and that his ship, which he uses to travel between worlds, is the titular “Odyssey.” The game will include two kinds of coins: standard gold coins and special Purple coins, which come in limited amounts and take on different forms between different worlds. Much of the game will be focused on collecting “Power Moons,” which are similar to the Power Stars from previous games and will be used to power the Odyssey.
You can watch the new trailer for the game above!
