Fantastic New Super Mario Odyssey “Jump Up, Super Star” Musical Commercial

Nintendo has released a new commercial for Super Mario Odyssey.

Featured above, the new live-action musically-focused commercial is a little over a minute and a half in length, and features a cast of live-performers, Mario, in-game environments, and more.

Super Mario Odyssey launches for the Nintendo Switch on October 27th, worldwide. In case you missed it, you can find our exclusive, hands-on preview for the game (with video) here from this year’s E3.

    Well, this is pretty cool.
    Instead of coining a ridiculous catchphrase or trying to desperate exploit memes they just say “hey look, this shit’s fun” and keep it at that.
    It kinda reminds me of roger rabbit but not sure why.


    This is so good

    I can’t believe this isn’t a Japanese commercial. They even threw in Mariachi Mario!

  • NukeA6

    Same here. It got the setting, time period, and everything.

  • Mechonis

    Wow…this was actually really good. They even showed Mexican theme Mario. NoA did something right for once


    It’s so good that it almost makes me want to watch Newsies. Almost.
    +1 for Mexi-Mario.

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    Lol they actually had the balls to show sombrero Mario, inb4 autistic screeching.

  • Bitterbear

    I think it’s because the Mexican Twitter/Facebook voices where louder than the Mexican-American and the Mexican-Canadian ones.

    Cute. Really, really excited for this game. It has been a good year to be a gamer.

    This is the first time, in a long time I’ve seen a commercial that was designed to be watched at the cinema, that you would actually want to experience on the big screen, as intended.

    Now typically some of the best cinema ads in my opinion tend to be car commercials, but one from a videogame company, and Nintendo at that, is both unexpected and rather pleasant.

    Which leaves me in the strange position to actually complement Nintendo of America, granted it’s probably more to do with the advertising company they hired, but at least it shows that there now looking for talent, and are willing to at least spend some money instead of being such Scrooges! A trait that has cost them in the past, with either lack of advertising or being so cheap when they do, it comes across as underwhelming, or if not, outright embarrassing.

    So, well done NOA, you may have genuinely earned your paychecks for once.

    It was mostly people who weren’t Mexican-anything that were bitching.

  • Bitterbear

    The so-called Latinx (see Hispanic SJWs) above the Rio Grande, and the Pipirisnais crowd in Mexico were doing all the whining.

  • Rough

    Now to wait for some autistic group of non-mexicans get triggered by something even mexicans are okay with.

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    Yeah but SJWs have always been the loud minority, I have a feeling the average Hispanic is totally cool with the sombrero Mario.

    From what I saw, it was a lot of self hating whites doing the complaining, at least in the news.

  • Bitterbear

    The best part of it is the barrage of insults coming from Mexicans in the comments’ section, the SJWs and the media are flat-out defenseless against this onslaught in Spanglish.

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing
  • Bitterbear

    The SJWs got rekt because they couldn’t write hit pieces accusing the fans of being racist trolls when pretty much it was only Latin Americans calling them on their bs.

    To think balls would be the only thing you needed to weather the cult of outrage.

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    *sigh* its a battle that will never end…

  • UnpluggedBeta

    I don’t understand Nintendo’s marketing department at all.
