EMBARK ON A CAP-TIVATING, GLOBE-TROTTING ADVENTURE! Join Mario on a massive, globe-trotting 3D adventure and use his incredible new abilities to collect Moons so you can power up your airship, the Odyssey, and rescue Princess Peach from Bowser’s wedding plans! This 3D Mario adventure is packed with secrets and surprises, and with Mario’s new moves like Cap Throw, Cap Jump, and Capture, you’ll have fun and exciting gameplay experiences unlike anything you’ve enjoyed in a Mario game before. Get ready to be whisked away to strange and amazing places far from the Mushroom Kingdom! Explore huge 3D kingdoms filled with secrets and surprises, including costumes for Mario and lots of ways to interact with the diverse environments – such as cruising around them in vehicles that incorporate the HD rumble feature of the Joy-Con controller or exploring sections as Pixel Mario. Thanks to his new friend, Cappy, Mario has brand new moves for you to master, like cap throw, cap jump and capture. With capture, Mario can take control of all sorts of things, including objects and enemies! Visit astonishing new locales, like skyscraper-packed New Donk City, and run into familiar friends and foes as you try to save Princess Peach from Bowser’s clutches and foil his dastardly wedding plans. A set of three new amiibo figures (sold separately) – Mario, Princess Peach and Bowser in their wedding outfits – will be released at launch. Some previously released amiibo will also be compatible with this title. You can tap supported amiibo to receive gameplay assistance – some amiibo will also unlock costumes for Mario when scanned!

Mario's games have been around for almost as long as game consoles have been a thing, but thankfully, he's always evolving. We rarely get the same Mario twice. Super Mario Odyssey delivers on that ongoing promise of originality and innovation: It distills the venerable series' joyful, irreverent world and characters and best-in-class platforming action, and introduces a steady stream of new and unexpected mechanics. It's all spun together into a generational masterpiece.
