Super Mario Odyssey Co-Op Mode Revealed

During today’s Nintendo Treehouse E3 stream, Nintendo showed gameplay of a previously unannounced co-op mode for Super Mario Odyssey.

Similar to Super Mario Galaxy, the player takes control of Mario’s newest power-giving sidekick, Cappy. Unlike Galaxy‘s glorified star bit collector, Odyssey sees the second player taking almost full control of Cappy, even being able to take control of the camera from Mario. Both work off of each other, with Cappy being able to help Mario easily make difficult jumps and defeat enemies while only being able to move a set distance away from Mario.

You can play this new co-op mode yourself when Super Mario Odyssey launches October 27th for Nintendo Switch.

    The entire game was inspired by a trip to mexico. CULTURAL APPROPRIATION!

    The co-op in Galaxy 2 at least was more than collecting star-bits, you could use it stun enemies which was helpful for the daredevil boss run stars, I think you might have been able to freeze moving/shrinking platforms in place.

    Pretty sure he meant the level, not the whole game. Though i may be incorrect .

    It’s amazing how these people never thought to complain about the mascot of a Japanese company being an Italian stereotype. I guess it’s because Italians are European so it’s okay to appropriate their culture.

    The minute I saw Mexican Mario in the trailer I knew people would bitch about that.
