Super Mario Odyssey (Switch)



  • Youtube Video

    That jazzy trailer though. This is the first time I've heard lyrics in a Mario game: can anyone pick out what they are?



  • I need this.



  • How can GOTY decisions be made in the year that both this and Breath of the Wild will have come out?



  • There is more originality in any single shot of this trailer than in the entirety of EA's press conference.



  • I'm just hoping for those fanservice Luigi's Mansion and Delfino Island levels. Galaxy would be nice too, but it looks like they've already got something set in space and the other two would be better surprises in the game.

    Taking into consideration the Treehouse stream, I wonder which areas are full worlds and which are the Super Mario Sunshine-like platforming pocket dimensions.



  • Mario Sunshine maybe passed as my fave 3D Mario game! It looks awesome, so much fun and that trailer was so Funky my 2 year old son started jumping all over the place and asking for it again when it was done. A proud moment as a father!



  • They showed Mario, Peach, and Bowser amiibo on the stream — all three in white wedding garb. Peach's face has the eyes all shaded blue like an anime character's reaction... I think I need her. I love how weird and on the edge of obscene this game's story is.



  • Looks much better than the Galaxy games. Welcome home 3D Mario.

    Looks purdy good to me.

    But Mario still hasn't possessed me to buy a Switch yet. Not after the support for Wii U dropped so quickly. I still mad.



  • @thenerdtheword

    Let's not forget Persona 5, Yakuza 0 and Horizon Zero Dawn among others

    Looks good, much better than the Galaxy games, they really never did it for me, they were fine, B level games, but the worlds always felt small, had to return to planets too often, but the biggest thing was probably the controls...hate the motion controls. Just give me a game like Sunshine or the special stages in Sunshine and Galaxies with normal controls!



  • I wasn't speaking figuratively by the way: I want your guys' help picking out those hard to hear lyrics. Let's get that sweet, sweet Mario canon.

    Edit: Someone in chat linked the ripped song and the title is unreal.

    Ignoring the pop song and the quick cut editing how does it look for real?

    I think this might edge out Snake Eater as the best video game theme song!



  • Think I found the full lyrics after searching once, lmao. It is pretty great and Snake Eater-y, but Persona theme songs are right up there. Credit.

    Here we go
    Off the rails
    Don’t you know it’s time to raise our sails
    It’s freedom like you never knew

    Don’t look back
    On the past
    Say a word I’ll be there in a flash
    You can say my hat is off to you

    Oh we can zoom all the way to the moon
    In this great wide wacky world
    Jump with me grab coins with me
    Oh yeahhhhh

    It’s time to jump up in the air
    Jump up don’t be scared
    Jump up and your cares will soar away

    And if the dark clouds start to swirl
    Don’t fear, don’t shed a tear cause
    I’ll be your 1-up girl

    So let’s all jump up super high
    High up in the sky
    This whole town will look back aaaaand sing

    You know that you’re my super star
    No one else can take me this far
    I’m flipping the switch
    Get ready for this, ohhh
    Let’s do the odyssey

    Odyssy, ya see
    Odyssey, ya see
    Odyssy, ya see
    Odyssey, ya see

    Odyssy, ya see
    Odyssey, ya see
    Odyssy, ya see
    Odyssey, Odyssey

    Spin the wheel
    Take a chance
    Every journey starts a new romance
    A new world’s calling out to you

    Take a turn
    Off the path
    On a new addition to the cast
    You know that any captain needs a crew

    Take any star that you’ll move side to side
    They’re just different points of view
    Jump with me grab coins with me
    Oh yeahhhhhhhh

    Come on and jump up in the air
    Jump without a care
    Jump up ‘cause you know that I’ll be there

    And if you find you’re short on joy
    Don’t fret, just don’t forget that
    You’re still our 1-up boy

    So go and straighten out your cap
    Let your toes begin to tap
    This rhythm is a power shroom

    Don’t worry you’re the super star
    No one else can make it this far
    Put a comb through that stache
    Now you’ve got panache
    Let’s do the odyssey

    It’s time to jump up in the air
    Jump up don’t be scared
    Jump up and your cares will soar away

    And if the dark clouds start to swirl
    Don’t fear, don’t shed a tear cause
    I’ll be your 1-up girl

    Now listen all you boys and girls
    All around the world
    Don’t be afraid to get up and move

    You know that we’re all super stars
    We’re the ones who made it this far
    Put a smile on that face
    There’s no time to waste
    Oh, let’s do the odyssey



  • It looks so good, I want to play it right now!



  • This trailer made me made up my mind about the Switch. I NEED ONE. AND THIS GAME.



  • Fuckin brutal trailer because I thought I had til December-ish before considering a switch.I need one ASAP.



  • @Haru17 This song has no right to be this great. I LOVE IT. Nintendo truly went all out on this.



  • Yeah... let's say I don't have the option not to buy a Switch now. : /



  • I haven't really seen anyone comment on the lack of music during normal gameplay but it seems like they took a note from BoTW and went with a much more ambient soundscape. Wonder how people will feel about that
