Super Mario Odyssey is a game for the Nintendo Switch. It was released internationally on October 27, 2017. It is the latest game of the Mario franchise overall.


This game was announced during the Nintendo Switch Presentation on January 12, 2017.


Super Mario Odyssey has gameplay similar to previous 3D Mario games, specifically Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario 64 DS.

The game is structured in an open-world setting, similar to that found in Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario 64 DS. Mario gets around using the Odyssey, a hat-shaped flying vehicle. He retains many of his moves from the 3D games, such as the Long Jump, Roll, Ground Pound, Triple Jump, and Dive.

Mario additionally has some new techniques, including one where he can throw his hat and use it as a platform. The hat can also be used to take control of enemies.

Unlike previous open-world Mario games, Mario only has three sections of health, similar to Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2. Lives have also been removed from this game. Instead, Mario will lose 10 coins when he dies.

Cappy can also be controlled by a second player in co-op mode, similar to the co-op from Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2.

Capture mechanic

The Capture mechanic is a new mechanic introduced in Super Mario Odyssey. By throwing his hat at certain enemies with Y, Mario can take control of them. This mechanic is used throughout the game and is an integral part of it, replacing the traditional power-up system in prior games.
