Super Mario Odyssey update out now (version 1.0.1)
Posted on 1 month ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 12 Comments | 0 Likes
With Super Mario Odyssey launching today, the first update has already gone live. Version 1.0.1 is now available.
We can say that the launch update isn’t anything too speculator. “Several fixes have been made to enhance the user’s experience,” Nintendo says in its update notes.
We’ll have to see how often Super Mario Odyssey is updated in the future. Nintendo will want to address any small issues (if there are any), but this isn’t a game like Splatoon 2 or ARMS in which there will be somewhat frequent patches.
Thanks to Cameron for the tip.

Super Mario Odyssey full tech analysis
Posted on 1 month ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Switch, Videos | 18 Comments | 0 Likes
Digital Foundry managed to get its hands on the final retail copy of Super Mario Odyssey. Today, the outlet published its technical findings pertaining to the game.
Digital Foundry first points out how Nintendo took great care in paying attention to Super Mario Odyssey’s smaller details. When rolling down a hill, for example, Mario will be covered in dirt. It’ll then wash off if you jump into a nearby pool of water. Mario also has real momentum this time, so he’ll slow up / speed down properly as he runs up / down hills.
