Director Explains why You Can’t Lose Lives in Super Mario Odyssey By Jannik Rafael Andersen

As a way to cap (ha) off a stellar year for the Nintendo Switch, Odyssey stands as the last big Nintendo exclusive for the platform.

Mario must embark on an arduous journey (an odyssey, if you will) across many worlds to save the kidnapped Princess, but he does so on a hat-shaped ship called the "Odyssey".

Facebook/SuperMarioENA new trailer for "Super Mario Odyssey" reveals Mario and his Cappy in action.

There's a lot more the trailer covers - including Super Mario Odyssey's two-player mode - but we won't spoil it all here. The previous Nintendo World Championships in 2015 were held during E3, which naturally lent itself better to surprise game announcements. There are three wedding-themed Amiibos, one each for Mario, Peach, and Bowser to tie into the story of Bowser attempting to forcefully marry Peach instead of just kidnapping her. Each of these special stops on Marios odyssey will look familiar to anyone who plays Super Mario Odyssey, as they are all inspired by Kingdoms in the game. Cappy also gives Mario new moves like cap throw, cap jump and capture, which define this new adventure and provide a fresh take on the classic Super Mario formula.

The video also touches upon Snapshot Mode which is used to take screenshots.

Aside from that, it also previews one of the upcoming game's cool features, which is an assist mode. There are some unannounced mini-games still to discover, but this new trailer shows off foot racing with Koopas, toy auto racing, and jump roping.

They're extra bits on top of the icing, especially for a game that so far has failed to show even the slightest indicator of stumbling.

Super Mario Odyssey is set to release exclusively on Nintendo Switch on October 27 across the globe.
