The frog was more or less out of the bag earlier today when a bunch of gameplay videos were leaked onto YouTube, but we played three new Super Mario Odyssey worlds last week at a Nintendo preview event.
Between the reference-packed streets of New Donk City and the fact Mario's hat is now a sentient being called Cappy, I think Super Mario Odyssey might be the strangest Mario game to date - no mean feat, given he's spent over 30 years stomping on goombas, flying about in space and turning into a plethora of different animals.
The first big E3 conference kicks off tonight at 10pm BST as EA unveils its plans for the coming year and beyond.
I set my alarm for 6am on Friday the 13th of January because I'd heard that was the time Amazon would be kicking off its online preorders for the Nintendo Switch.
The announcement trailer for Super Mario Odyssey is pretty full on - it barely gives you time to register that Mario is in a proper city before dashing off to a series of strange and colourful environments. Oh yeah, and Mario rides a lion at one point.
Stop and look around you, however, and you'll find the relatively short trailer is absolutely stuffed with information that points towards not only a substantial adventure, but also a rather interesting trip down memory lane for the pot bellied plumber.
Although we did fail to answer the biggest question about Odyssey - If Mario's new hat is alive, is Mario's head in its mouth or its bum? - we did spot quite a few secrets and references to Mario's older adventures, all of which we've packaged neatly in the video below.
