Mount Volbono (ボルボーノ , lit. Volbono?), also known as The Bubbling Burg that Heats the Meat, is a location in the Luncheon Kingdom in Super Mario Odyssey. It is based on the real world location of This location, inspired by Italy (or more specifically by Mount Vesuvius), is a combination of lava/volcano and food themes. The city's main inhabitants are notably Volbonans.

Layout

Mount Volbono is surrounded by strange pink lava, its a colorful and vibrant palace that is famous for its cuisine, with dishes simmered over the volcano, and chock-full of the local produce that grows to enormous size thanks to the volcanic climate. On your way to Mount Volbono, you'll pass through the Old Town, ringed by the ruined wall that once enclosed the town. Atop the walls are little mounds of salt, carried by the wind and piled up naturally. The sights here are very different from the colorful scenery of Peronza Plaza, but equally breathtaking.

The highlight of Mount Volbono's year is the Cooking Carnival, where visitors from all over the world come to sample the famous Stupendous Stew. While cooking on a volcano is of course a grand spectacle, the dish itself has a surprisingly delicate flavor, described most frequently in reviews as a "melty deliciousity."

History

Super Mario Odyssey

When Mario and Cappy first visit this kingdom, Bowser and the Broodals have stolen the Stupendous Stew as food for the wedding reception. They must then defeat Spewart. Once successful, they must make way to the remaining Stupendous Stew to defeat Cookatiel. However, Mario and Cappy are blown off after the volcano erupts. Therefore, they must reach the pot a different way.
