Nintendo Switch Exclusive Super Mario Odyssey Gets New Co-Op Gameplay

Nintendo Showcases about ten minutes of gameplay of Super Mario Odyssey for Nintendo Switch, focusing on the co-op mode that lets one player control Cappy.

Nintendo released a new video of the upcoming Super Mario blockbuster Super Mario Odyssey.

The video gives a look at the game’s co-op feature, with one player controlling Mario, and the other controlling his new friend (and hat) Cappy.

While Cappy can move semi-independently (within a limited distance from Mario), Mario can still throw his hat around without having to rely on the second player if necessary.

We get to see lot of exploration in the Wooded Kingdom, with the customary hunt for coins, moons, and location-specific currency, that allows the player to access the local Crazy Cap Store and purchase new outfits and hats for Mario.

The game’s capture feature is also showcased extensively, especially on local plant enemies that allow Mario to climb. Cappy can also clear the poisonous goo on the ground, because it’s totally great to wear a hat that you just used as a mop.

You can check the video out below. If you want to see more of the game, you can watch some recent gameplay, more from the day beforea recent overview trailer, and a gallery of screenshots.

Of course, you should also give a read to our hands-on preview of the game.

Super Mario Odyssey will hit the shelves worldwide exclusively for Nintendo Switch on October 27th, 2017.
