Is Super Mario Odyssey another Switch triumph? Early reviews suggest soby One News Page Staff -

It’s been a very big couple of years for Nintendo – and while their landmark Switch console may have landed with only a handful of big titles worth looking into, it seems that the staggered approach to game release over the last few months has helped to keep interest in the portable-home console hybrid alive. It’s arguably thanks to games such as Splatoon 2 and Mario and Rabbids Kingdom Battle getting staggered releases that people have been so willing to return to the system. The Switch, of course, debuted with the praise-winning Zelda: Breath of The Wild, a virtually open world Zelda adventure that effectively revolutionized the way people saw the franchise. By all accounts, it seems that Mario’s latest romp, the highly anticipated Super Mario Odyssey, could be set to do exactly the same ▶️ for the moustachioed plumber.

In his latest adventure, Mario sets out to save Princess Peach from Bowser (as always) as she’s being coerced into marrying the reptile. There’s even wedding-themed Amiibo being released to tie in with the game. Early reviews are just starting to trickle in, and the main thread that people seem to be snagging onto is the fact that this is a game which will really eat up time. It’s a game which, true to its word, is colossal – an open world that clearly borrows from Super Mario 64, one of the most celebrated videogames of all time, and not just in Mario’s history.

The move to allow Mario to throw his hat onto various animals, objects and even people to transform into them is a delightfully bonkers move which is apparently going down well in early playtests – the only caveat some sources are reporting on is the fact that the story, while minimal, can sometimes get in the way of the gargantuan adventure unfolding in front of you!

Mario’s next adventure was always going to be a big test after the New Super Mario Bros series spent many years indulging in retro platforming – but this latest instalment in the run seems to indicate that the world’s favorite plumber – though even Nintendo have remarked that he doesn’t seem to actually do much pipework any more – could be moving in a very interesting direction. Super Mario Odyssey is widely available now for the Nintendo Switch – and we may have our own verdict for you soon!
