During tonight’s Nintendo Switch presentation, Nintendo officially unveiled the Mario title we briefly saw during the October event. The upcoming Nintendo Switch game is called Super Mario Odyssey, and it has a theme of “A journey to an unknown world outside the Mushroom kingdom.” Nintendo Producer Yoshiaki Koizumi showed off a trailer for the game that revealed an open, “sandbox” style world, with tons of areas to explore, including a large city full of skyscrapers, a desert town, a forest, and more.
Super Mario Odyssey, Mario’s hat appears to be living, as it has a set of eyes. Mario is seen throwing it as a weapon, and also throwing it and then jumping off of it cross gaps. It’s also in the logo, clearly indicating that it will play a major role in the game.
Super Mario Odyssey will launch on Nintendo Switch during the Holiday 2017 season.
