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.
