About the Super Mario Odyssey
The super Mario Odyssey is a 3D video game that is developed and published by Nintendo, still featuring Mario, the plumber. Or you could say Mario, the former plumber, as he now does what he likes. Super Mario Odyssey comes with the primary open-ended, exploration-based gameplay which was featured in the previous Super Mario series.
Super Mario Odyssey Gameplay
The game puts you in the role of Mario who travels the world on the “Odyssey”, with the goal of rescuing Princess Peach from Bowser. Bowser happens to be the person who plans to forcefully marry Princess Peach. As Mario saves the princess Peach, he rescues the princess’s sister, Tiara.
The various world that Mario travels to, are called kingdoms. These kingdoms are more like the familiar exploration –base design feature which was in the previous Super Mario series. In the kingdoms, you will search and clear objectives, to get items known as Power moons. This power moons can power up the Odyssey and grant you access to new worlds.
On Mario’s abilities
Mario can use amazing powers like the ability to power up the Odyssey (more like a ship) with the collected power moons, capture and control enemies, objects and so on. Mario also has many awesome skills of jumping; that he jumps walls, long jumps and rolls like it is nothing.
Also, Mario can now throw his cap, which happens to be his heroic companion named Cappy. Cappy is more like a weapon to Mario. If Cappy is thrown to an object or enemies, it takes possession of them, and it is called “capturing”.
In super Mario Odyssey, a second player could be in control of the cappy and can use it to attack enemies, independently.
