E3 2017: Super Mario Odyssey Hands-On Gameplay Impressions

Super Mario Odyssey is weird in the best way possible.


Prior to a roundtable interview with Nintendo EPD's Yoshiaki Koizumi and Kenta Motokura, we had the opportunity to play Super Mario Odyssey for 30 minutes, visiting both New Donk City and a desert-like Kingdom. Check out our impressions above, where we dive into the game's new structure, the odd nature of its mechanics, and why we're excited to see more of what appears to be Mario's strangest adventure yet.

Alongside all of that, Nintendo today announced that Odyssey will get its own Amiibo figures. Additionally, it announced a release date for Odyssey of October 27 and confirmed it will have multiplayer.
