New Evolution of Mario Sandbox-Style Gameplay
Mario embarks on a new journey through unknown worlds, running and jumping through huge 3D worlds in the first sandbox-style Mario game since Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine. Set sail between expansive worlds aboard an airship, and perform all-new actions, such as throwing Mario's cap.
The game begins with a battle between Mario and Bowser on an airship in flight. Using his hat, Bowser is able to easily defeat Mario and send him flying off the airship, then takes off to prepare for his wedding with Peach. Mario lands in the Cap Kingdom, where he meets a ghostly hat-like character named Cappy, who explains that Bowser had previously invaded the Cap Kingdom and kidnapped his sister Tiara. After defeating one of the Broodals, minions of Bowser helping to plan his wedding, in the Cap Kingdom and recovering an airship named the Odyssey, Mario and Cappy set off on a journey to stop Bowser's wedding.
Super Mario 3D World returns to the "sandbox" style gameplay of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine, in which Mario traverses large open-ended areas to find Power Moons. The game features Mario traveling to different locations across a new world by airship.
Mario gains a new ally known as Cappy, who dwells inside of his hat. With Cappy, Mario can throw his hat to attack enemies, and can also "capture" certain enemies and objects, possessing them and allowing him to use abilities specific to the captured target. Super Mario Odyssey also features a two-player co-op mode that allows a second player to control Cappy.
According to Shigeru Miyamoto, the decision to use the original 3D gameplay style for Super Mario Odyssey was out of a desire to create Mario a game for the "core" audience on the Nintendo Switch, as games like Super Mario Maker and Super Mario Run were already developed for more casual players.
Within one month after the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017, the first Super Mario Odyssey trailer became the most-viewed gameplay trailer on Nintendo's YouTube channel, with over 11.2 million views.
Famitsu rated Super Mario Odyssey an overall near-perfect score of 39/40 (10/10/9/10).
