    Default Super Mario Thread

    I don't think we've ever had a thread dedicated to the Super Mario Bros franchise before, so with the announcement of Super Mario Odyssey, this seems like a good time to make one.

    So what are everyone's thoughts on the game so far? I think it looks absolutely amazing. It seems to have everything I want from a Mario game and more. I can't wait to learn more about it.

    Join Ash and Pikachu as they travel to the Tenno Region, a region known for its advanced space program. Along their way towards the Tenno League and becoming a Pokémon Master they'll encounter new Pokémon, new enemies, such as the evil Team Planetary, and, of course, a certain trio of Team Rocket members, along with friends new and old.

    The real world location surroundings remind me of a mesh between the Sonic 06 and Sonic Unleashed.

    (I'm not saying that the quality looks like 06 as much as the rendition.)

    I guess Bowser is ready after what happened in Super Paper Mario. LOL!

    Overall, like any Mario game, I'm looking forward to it, but the real world surroundings are kind of bizarre to me.

    If I understood things correctly, the purpose of this game is Mario traveling to various worlds or lands. The New York setting is just one of those "magical" worlds. The best way to interpret the fact that we have Mario standing next to a realistic person is that these people are just another type "magical" denizen along the lines of Toads, Piantas, Pink Bomb-omb, Luma, etc. I personally think it's wacky in all the right ways.

    Nah, there is only one globe there in the logo and in the ship. It is just one big world adventure, Sanic style.

    The New York setting is called New Donk City and has all sorts of references to Kong series, but particularly the original Kong and it homages the shift from Jumpman era and original Mario Bros. to Super Mario Bros.

    It's about time we got a sandbox Mario game again. Exploration based platformers are such a rarity nowadays, Mario's been going classic linear style for so long now, this is the breath of fresh air that the series really needed.

    That's why I said worlds or lands, instead of just worlds. Even if they're all on the same globe, they pretty much seem like their own little (or rather big) world. Regardless, it's all fun stuff.

    It's definitely nice to see us going back to a Super Mario 64/Sunshine kind of Mario game for sure! I enjoyed Galaxy and 3D World a lot but even then, I can't wait for bigger exploration, especially with how nice the worlds look! Plus there's some liveliness judging by the city and the western-town place which is always appreciated.

    I have to say, this is the most interested in a Mario game I've been for a while. And I'm a big Mario fan to boot and loved the previous 3D games, too.

    It's an hour and a half long, but this video does an excellent job at analyzing and dissecting the Super Mario Odyssey reveal trailer. If you have the time and are interested in the game, I highly suggest you watch it.
