Mario Gets An Axe To The Head For Halloween

Mario becomes a zombie in Super Mario Odyssey.


Nintendo is celebrating Halloween by making Mario a zombie. A new Zombie Mario costume is now available in Super Mario Odyssey for Nintendo Switch. It includes themed headgear in the form of an axe through Mario's skull, as well as an outfit that shows Mario with dead eyes and ripped clothing that appears to be meant to look as if it is stained with blood.

It is truly horrific.

The new Zombie Mario outfit is now available in Odyssey via the shop that you unlock after being the story. What's more, Nintendo has introduced new filters for the game's Snapshot Mode in the form of Manga, Tile, and Kaleidoscope. You can see these in the image below.

With more than 10.4 million copies sold worldwide, Super Mario Odyssey is the Nintendo Switch's best-selling game to date. GameSpot's Super Mario Odyssey review scored the game a 10/10.
