Super Mario Odyssey Now Available for Nintendo Switch

Let’s do the Odyssey!

This site is called “Mario’s Hat,” so it’s only natural that I talk a bit about the release of a game which actually stars Mario’s hat, right?

Super-Mario-Odyssey-3

Super Mario Odyssey is now available for the Nintendo Switch, returning the 3D series to its roots by sending Mario on his way to collect numerous Moons throughout various sandbox-level Kingdoms. And of course, joining him on this new adventure is the Bonneter known as Cappy, who takes the form of the plumber (or ex-plumber; who even knows any more?) protagonist’s iconic lid, allowing him to pull off all sorts of cool moves.

Super Mario Odyssey is the must-have video game for this holiday season,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, President and Chief Operating Officer of Nintendo of America. “Video game fans of all kinds will want to dive into this latest Mario adventure as soon as possible.”

Super-Mario-Odyssey-2

Super Mario Odyssey can be yours for a suggested retail price of $79.99, but if you don’t already have a Nintendo Switch, then you may be in luck: A special bundle containing the console, two Mario-red JoyCon controllers, a download code for the game, and a special carrying case can be yours for $499.99. And if that’s not enough for you, three new amiibo figures of Mario, Bowser, and Princess Peach in their wedding attire are now available for $15.99 each, or as a set for $44.99.

You can learn more about Super Mario Odyssey, the aforementioned Nintendo Switch bundle, the related amiibo figures, and even find a download of the song “Jump Up, Super Star” by visiting supermario.nintendo.com/. And if you’d like to check out a review first, I’ll point you in the direction of USgamer, where my wife talks about it at greater length.
