Hint Toad’s map in Super Mario Odyssey references a past Mario game

Posted on November 5, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in Switch, Videos

Super Mario Odyssey is chock-full of Easter eggs and references to past Mario games. One of these extends to Hint Toad, who will help you locate Power Moons in exchange for coins.

What you may not realize is that Hint Toad’s map is yet another reference to a prior Mario title. For more on this, continue on below.

Hint Toad’s map is… none other than Bob-Omb Battlefield from Super Mario 64. You can also see it within the interior of the Odyssey, though it’s more difficult to see. Definitely a neat little touch on Nintendo’s part that many players won’t ever see.

    He’s probably learning new speedrun tactics.

    I wish they recreated it in Odyssey. Could have been accessed through a painting inside Peach’s Castle.
