Update: We have some clarification on the motion controls setting. Unfortunately, it’s not as clear-cut as it initially seems. If you turn off motion controls, it only applies to the camera – not the hat-throwing mechanic.


Original: Not a fan of motion controls? Not interested in using them in Super Mario Odyssey? Well, good news! It seems that they can be disabled entirely.

We have a look at Super Mario Odyssey’s settings above. As you’ll see, it looks like motion controls can indeed be turned off. You can also adjust the strength of rumble and more.

He spends his days with his new friends at “Mihate High School” and has an “unforgettable summer experience,” but what “incident” will occur in this tranquil seaside town? Depending on how you spend your days with the girls, the boy’s “world” will drastically change…

Characters

The protagonist’s cousin. Looking at her good qualities, she is cheerful and lively, but looking at her bad side, she is somewhat ill-mannered.

She is a member of the Tennis Club, and seems to be popular not only among the boys, but also among the girls.

Miu Amana (voiced by Shiori Izawa)



A mysterious girl with a shadowy quietness. While she is a bit isolated from those around her, she is the director of club activities known as “Miss Research,” and she can be of firm character. If you go to the cafe where she works part-time, you may even be able to see an unexpected side of her…

Below you can also check out the new screenshots and the teaser trailer that Arc System Works released for World End Syndrome. World End Syndrome will launch in 2018 for the Switch in Japan.
