As a way of promoting Super Mario Odyssey, Nintendo is planning a cross-country tour across the United States. Those who stop by one of the five locations will have the chance to meet the Mario costumed character, take photos with him and his trailer, and get hands-on time with the game.
While Nintendo has five specific locations lined up, Mario will also be making some stops to sightsee and take photos. Each of these special stops are inspired by Kingdoms in Super Mario Odyssey.

Super Mario Odyssey makes a major change to a core gameplay element of the series. Lives are now completely gone. When you die in Super Mario Odyssey, you lose coins instead.
This ties in with another element of Super Mario Odyssey. Players can use coins to purchase all sorts of outfits and hats, including a wetsuit, Mario’s look in Mario Maker, and even a golfer’s uniform resembling what he wore in NES Open Tournament Golf.

Digital Foundry was able to take Super Mario Odyssey for a test run earlier this month. Even before the final launch, the outlet spotted some notable improvements over the E3 build. We’re also able to see how Odyssey stacks up in handheld mode.
One notable improvement to point out right away is the docked resolution. Previously, Super Mario Odyssey ran at 1280×720. It has since changed to 1600×900. Worth noting, Super Mario Odyssey has the highest resolution of a 3D Mario to date while still running at 60 frames per second.
