Super Mario Odyssey brings us the Mario game we never got on the Wii U

We’ve complained many times on our Podcast that the Wii U was missing something very important, a Mario adventure in the veins of Super Mario 64 or Sunshine. With the Nintendo Switch we won’t have to worry about that as Nintendo has confirmed Super Mario Odyssey for this Holiday!

Super Mario Odyssey will see some drastic changes to how we’ll see a Mario game, as Mario will jump into our world for the first time (which looks really strange) in order to stop the marriage of Princess Peach and Bowser. Mario will also gain a new ally in the form of a sentient hat which he can toss, use to extend his jumps and attack enemies.

You can check out the trailer for Super Mario Odyssey above, no release date outside of a Holiday 2017 window has been announced.
