OK, yesterday I said the only Nintendo E3 thing I was going to cover was the Metroid Prime 4 teaser, but the new game trailer for Super Mario Odyssey is too cool to ignore. That’s because it unveils not just a firm release date, but Mario’s brand new ability for the game.
That would be the ability to – well, “possess” seems like too sinister a verb for Mario, but I can’t think of a better one – possess other entities, including enemies and the game’s already revealed realistic human characters. The killer app to this power would be Mario using his magic hat to possess a dinosaur, and if that’s not enough to sell you on the game I don’t know what to tell you.
Check out the E3 game trailer for Super Mario Odyssey below, and if you don’t feel like waiting two and a half minutes to get this information for yourself at the end, the game comes out for the Nintendo Switch on October 27th.
Here’s the trailer:
