Check Out This Swinging Broadway Style Launch Trailer For Super Mario Odyssey


 

It’s been a long while since we last saw a brand new, proper Mario game. The last true new iteration of the classic plumber was Super Mario Galaxy 2, released for the Nintendo Wii in 2010. Since then, every Mario game released, with the exception of Super Mario Maker, has been an enhanced remake of a previously released titles, doing their best to capture the attention of the Wii U’s uninterested audience. Now, fresh off the smashing success of the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo is poised to end the year off with a resounding performance with the release of Super Mario Odyssey, which releases on Friday October 27th. To capture the pure joy and feeling of the highly anticipated release, Nintendo has revealed a swinging launch trailer, inspired by the lively performances of Broadway.

The trailer showcases snippets of what the game will feature, from using Mario’s hat to become different beings to the new worlds he will visit. The trailer shows all this against the backdrop of a talented cast of choreographed dancers and a jazzy soundtrack, sung by a smooth singer. The trailer evokes the style and life of the city, while also evoking the pure fun and wonder of discovery the game is surely to have.

Super Mario Odyssey releases October 27th, 2017 exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.

Super Mario Run to Launch on iOS December 15th

The first-ever mobile game featuring the most iconic video game hero of all time goes on sale for iPhone and iPad on Dec. 15 in United States time zones. Super Mario Run can be downloaded from the App Store at no cost, and players can try elements of the game’s three modes for free. Once the game has been downloaded, a one-time payment of $9.99 (United States price) will grant unlimited access to each of the three modes in this release.

“The wait is almost over for a Super Mario game that can be played on mobile devices,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Developed under the direction of Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto, Super Mario Run brings a new take on the series’ beloved action-platforming gameplay to iPhone and iPad for the first time.”

Super Mario Run is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices running iOS 8.0 or later. Starting on Dec. 15, the game will launch in 151 countries and regions. Super Mario Run supports English, Japanese, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Russian and traditional Chinese language options.

Super Mario Run is the first Super Mario Bros. game developed specifically for mobile devices. In the game, Mario runs forward on his own, but relies on the tap of a single finger to jump over obstacles, avoid enemies, pull off stylish moves, collect coins and reach the flagpole to complete courses.
