SUPER MARIO ODYSSEY HANDS-ON PREVIEW: A BRILLIANTLY BIZARRE ADVENTURE

 

It is said that the travel spirit expands. But when you’re Mario, you’re probably going to become a T-Rex, a tank, a ball of electricity or fire, and sometimes a strange creature squat plant with telescopic leg vegetation. (I’ll try to explain that later.)

 

Super Mario Odyssey was designated as Mario’s return to the litter box, a successor to Mario 64 and the sun. But “sandbox” is not the right word, says Nintendo. In Japan, they use the word Hakoniwa, a form of miniature gardening. The idea is to create a complex and stylized landscape, where each item is carefully placed and well. Such is the philosophy which forms the kingdoms of the Odyssey. So, then a domain is not huge – you can triple jump your way through New Donk City in minutes – thanks to this concentrated design, considered, it feels much bigger.

Walking on the street in this version of New York refracted by Mario, it is easy to get distracted. Just spent 10 minutes exploring, but it was enough time to climb to its highest and jump off the top of the building, slide down the sky, and dive into a pool on the roof of a Neighboring building. I spoke with the mayor, Pauline, and helped recruit a drummer for a group of four pieces that are editing. I mounted a scooter in precarious balance at the top of a scaffold. Crazy visited Cap, a clothing store where I bought an elegant striped suit, but I chose to wear the costume adventurer who was already hidden in my closet. Also I rope to jump into the park. You can do a lot in 10 minutes.

Some of these antics have given rise to the emergence of a moon power, the main object of the Odyssey collection. There was a hidden over New Donk’s tallest building, but did not know he was there. Like the Korok seeds of Breath of the Wild, is a reward for being curious. But in the area of the Arena – a desert area with Mexican influence elements – I received one to complete a few more successful traditional platforms. They seem to be rewarded for demonstrating ingenuity, curiosity or ability – or combinations of three.

They also serve a practical purpose, feeding the glass like Mario hat, the Odyssey, and ensuring passage1 to the other kingdom. Beyond Bowser once again the kidnapping of Princess Peach – and force her to marry this time – elements of the story they are not yet revealed, but it is clear Mario is the journey away from Kingdom Mushroom in his research.

Sailors often returned home with fantastic stories of strange and wonderful creatures found on their travels. After playing Odyssey, I can tell. It is full of surprises and some wonderfully strange things. Much of this is from Cappy, the new hat Mario and his partner. You can use it to destroy objects, retrieve distant objects as a makeshift platform to jump a little further. Just touch X to launch, or else, you can move the right to Joy Con.

Interestingly, separate Joy Cons presented as the preferred control system, and there are several motion controls related to Cappy. Flick both up or down, and Cappy is sent in that direction. A left or right coordinate with the movement Joy Cons sent Cappy violently to the enemy spiral so that more damage is added. Despite having many movements Cappy actions, according to Nintendo all can be replicated in the Pro controller. Based on my limited playing time, motion controls will take a long time to get used to. The main problem I had been throwing was exactly while participating in a more demanding platform.
