Super Mario Odyssey (スーパーマリオオデッセイ, Super Mario Odyssey) is a platforming game for the Nintendo Switch, it is the nineteenth title in the Super Mario series, the seventh original 3D Mario game and the eighth 3D Mario title overall. It was released internationally on October 27, 2017, in South Korea and Taiwan on December 2, 2017 and in China on March 16, 2020.

The game won the Game of the Year award at the National Academy of Video Game Trade Reviewers Awards (where it also won the other categories it was nominated for, except for Control Precision, which was won by Cuphead) and was also nominated for the Game of the Year award at the Game Awards 2017 and it lost to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild, despite that, it won Best Family Game at the aforementioned ceremony.


Development for Super Mario Odyssey began right after Super Mario 3D World was released in late 2013. The developers wanted the game to contain the more sandbox-styled gameplay, as seen in Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario 64 DS. The developers also had several ideas for the game, and the capture ability was one of them.

As for the kingdoms, each location was based on real-world locations, like the Sand Kingdom, which contained elements from Kenta Motokura's experiences during a trip to Mexico, and the Luncheon Kingdom's food aesthetics was inspired by Italy and other European countries.


Super Mario Odyssey has gameplay similar to previous 3D Mario games, specifically Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario 64 DS.

The game is structured in an open-world setting, similar to that found in Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario 64 DS. Mario uses a ship named the "Odyssey", a hat-shaped flying vehicle to fly to the game's many kingdoms. He retains many of his moves from the 3D games, such as the Long Jump, Roll, Ground Pound, Ground Pound Jump, Double Jump, Triple Jump, and the returning Dive.

Mario additionally has some new techniques, including one where he can throw his hat and use it as a platform. The hat can also be used to take control of enemies, which plays a very important role in the game.

Unlike the previous open-world Mario games, Mario only has three sections of health, similar to Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2. Mario also doesn't have any lives from this game. Instead, he will lose 10 Coins upon dying.

Cappy can also be controlled by a second player in co-op mode, similar to the co-op from Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2.

Capture mechanic

The Capture mechanic is a new mechanic introduced in Super Mario Odyssey. By throwing his hat at certain enemies with Y Button, Mario can take control of them. This mechanic is used throughout the game and is an integral part of it, replacing the traditional power-up system in prior games.

  • Super Mario Odyssey is the first Mario platformer of several things:
    • The first Mario platformer since Super Mario 64 DS (Super Mario Sunshine if not counting remakes) to contain sandbox-styled levels, as well as no power-ups, as the power-up system has been replaced with the new Capture mechanic.
    • The first Mario platformer to receive a 7+ rating by PEGI and an Everyone +10 by ESRB.
    • The first Mario platformer not to feature Bob-ombs or Boos as enemies, since their debuts.
    • The first Mario platformer not to feature any lives as well as 1-Up Mushrooms and Game Overs. It is also the first Mario platformer to not feature any type of mushroom.
  • At 18 million copies, Super Mario Odyssey is currently the 3rd Best-Selling Mario game on the Nintendo Switch, right behind New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe (19 million) and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (36 million).
  • The music for the Cap Kingdom sounds kind of like the music used in The Loud House episode "Spell It Out."
