Super Mario Odyssey is set to launch October 27, 2017.
Nintendo first showed footage of Super Mario Odyssey back in October 2016. Assuming all goes according to plan, you’ll be able to play it on October 27, 2017.
In Super Mario Odyssey, Mario leaves the Mushroom Kingdom and visits all kinds of new places. Most strikingly, one of them looks very much like our world, complete with skyscrapers and humans who are much taller than the cartoonish plumber. Read on for everything we know so far about Super Mario Odyssey.
E3 news and updates
During Nintendo’s E3 video presentation, we finally got a release date for Super Mario Odyssey: October 27, 2017. We also got a new trailer that showed a ton of things we’d never seen before, including Mario throwing his hat on enemies and objects to inhabit them.
Nintendo then unveiled the Super Mario Odyssey amiibo that will be coming out.
We even got to go hands-on with Super Mario Odyssey, so be sure to read that for our first impressions.
That’s it for the E3 news. Now let’s go back to the beginning and look at everything else Nintendo has released for the game.
Super Mario Odyssey revealed
Back in October 2016, fans were starving for information about Nintendo’s upcoming console. When Nintendo finally revealed the Switch in October, we got our first look at a new Mario game.
It wasn’t until January 2017 that Nintendo officially announced Super Mario Odyssey and showed off the reveal trailer.
When the trailer launched, Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto shared a few details about what to expect from the game, including that it has a bigger focus on exploration than other recent installments.
