Things to know about Super Mario Odyssey for Nintendo Switch

The plumber is back and stronger than ever! The new version of one of the most popular games is officially out. But what makes it so special and different from the others? Let’s discover that together.

Allow me to start with a story. As usual, evil and horrible Bowser kidnaps small helpless Princess Peach. With one exception… This time it’s not just to keep her as a prisoner but to marry this poor thing. So when Mario discovers that his princess is in trouble, he gets into his ship, called Odyssey by the way, and rushes through the different kingdoms to find the princess and stop the wedding.

And what’s so different in it?- you may ask.

The 3D environment that makes you feel as if you are on the giant playground, where you can run, jump, role and do almost whatever you want. And you don’t have to follow the exact trail. You can go anywhere you want. That what makes the game special.

More than that, here you have the opportunity to discover the world cause in this version each kingdom is a country that you can visit while accomplishing your mission.

What is also new in the game is that we don’t pick up power-ups. This time we are looking for magic energy to feed Mario Odyssey hat with it. Why? Cause it makes the hat stronger. This is the weapon our plumber uses in his mission. By the way, this hat is not just a weapon, it’s Mario’s friend. No no he’s not crazy. He’s not speaking to items. In this version the hat is alive and it has its own character. It’s called Cappy and it even has eyes. Together Cappy and Mario travel from kingdom to kingdom to find the needed items that would help them in their mission. So what exactly they are looking for?

First of all, it’s already mentioned power-ups. These little things make Cappy stronger so it would be able to use it’s powers. For example, one of the tricks that it performs called “capturing”. What does it mean? It means that Mario may throw Cappy at one of the game characters and totally control it. By character I mean people, animals or even items.

Moreover, one of the best opportunities in the game is to discover the “kingdoms’ outfits “. How is that? Well, to do that you need to pick up the coins, which are different for each kingdom, by the way. When you’ve collected enough you can go to a special shop to choose a new outfit for Mario and Cappy of course. So you give the coins and you get your fashionable clothes. You may enjoy this function specially when you’re into fashion.


But the most important items you are to find in the game are the “moons”. In this version of the game they replace the stars. That can be hidden wherever: very high, in the places you would never guess about. They can also be given as a reward for beating evil guys. And of course for accomplishing a mission they are giving as well. Be sure to get all of them you will have to work very hard, because it’s one of the most important elements of the game. Mario needs them as a fuel for Odyssey. Without the “moons” the ship will not move anywhere and poor princess will have to face her destiny…

To sum it up, it’s for you to choose the way you play. But whatever you do enjoy.
