Nintendo Switch's Super Mario Odyssey Will Be Playable At E3

The sandbox-style game is sure to be popular on the show floor.


As part of the announcement of its E3 2017 plans today, Nintendo revealed that Super Mario Odyssey will be playable for the very first time at the show.

We don't know all that much about Odyssey, but in a press release, Nintendo described the game as an "sandbox-style adventure," similar to Super Mario Sunshine and the groundbreaking and iconic Super Mario 64. Nintendo will talk more about the game at E3 during its Nintendo Spotlight: E3 2017 video presentation, scheduled to begin on June 14.

E3 2017 is open to the public, a first in the show's history, so anyone at the event (who is willing to wait in what will presumably be long lines) can check out Odyssey well head of its release. The game is scheduled to come out this holiday, though a release date has not been announced.
