Using his new pal and hat Cappy, Mario can possess many objects in Super Mario Odyssey. We’re talking animals, enemies, regular humans, and so much more.

On its new UK Twitter account for the game, Nintendo offered a brief look at the Captured Chain Chomp. The GIF, posted below, shows how Mario can knock down walls.


Digital Foundry published an early technical analysis for Super Mario Odyssey based on the game’s appearance at E3. Things may change over the next few months leading up to release, but the new video offers a good idea as to what we can expect from the game.

The big thing for Super Mario Odyssey is that the game runs at a consistent 60 frames per second, for the most part. To manage that, Nintendo has implemented some interesting techniques.

This information comes from Shigeru Miyamoto…

On whether Super Mario Odyssey was influenced by Zelda: Breath of the Wild…

Miyamoto: I think starting with myself, there is an underlying philosophy that goes across Nintendo. For example, the Mario team and the Zelda team are in two different places – one is in Kyoto, one is in Tokyo – so they don’t have direct communication. But the people who are leading that and organizing that have this underlying philosophy that they have a pretty direct connection with myself.

In terms of Breath of the Wild and Odyssey, honestly if we were to have waited until the success of Breath of the Wild to make Odyssey it would have been too late. So it’s not that they influenced each other. I think what I did with both teams was when I touched any of the prototypes or tests that they would bring me, I would try to make sure that it feels good, and that it feels good being in that world, and that’s what I did for both teams. That was my role.
