Super Mario Odyssey revealed, due this “holiday season”

Set partially in the real world.

Nintendo has revealed its first major Mario adventure for Nintendo Switch, Super Mario Odyssey.

Due this "holiday season", Super Mario Odyssey will see Mario emerge from the Mushroom Kingdom and into the real world. The trailer showed sections where he's scaling New York like a certain spider-powered man.

Mario will be equipped with a sentient hat this time around, one with eyes that can be used as a makeshift platform.
