Super Mario Odyssey (Reviews)

Super Mario Odyssey puts the player in the role of Mario as he travels across many worlds on the “Odyssey”, his hat-shaped ship, in an effort to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser, who plans to marry her.[1][2] The game sees Mario traveling to various worlds known as “Kingdoms,” which return to the free-roaming exploration-based level design featured in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine, with each featuring unique designs ranging from photo-realistic cities to more fantasy-based worlds.[3][4][5] Each kingdom has Mario searching for and clearing various objectives in order to obtain items known as Power Moons, which can power up the Odyssey and grant access to new worlds. Checkpoints littered throughout each world allow Mario to instantly warp to them once activated.[6][7]

In addition to Mario’s existing repertoire of moves, such as triple-jumping and wall-jumping, Mario is also able to throw out his cap, which is possessed by a spirit named Cappy. The cap can be thrown in multiple directions to attack enemies and can also be used as a temporary platform.[6][8] When the cap is thrown at certain objects, enemies, or non-playable characters, Mario is able to take possession of them, officially referred to as “capturing”, allowing him to use unique abilities. For example, Mario can possess a Bullet Bill to fly across large gaps, a bolt of electricity to climb up electric wires, and a tank to fire at enemies.[9][10] Throughout the game, Mario can pick up coins, including ones unique to each kingdom, to be spent on items such as new hats and outfits, some of which are required for completing certain objectives.[6] The game also features cooperative play, in which a second player takes control of Cappy and can attack enemies independently of Mario.[11][12] The game also features a photo mode that allows players to use a free-moving camera to take and save screenshots, with additional options such as filters and stickers.[13][14] Use of the Odyssey-themed Mario, Peach, and Bowser Amiibo figurines each allow for special in-game abilities.[15] All other Amiibo can be scanned to provide hints to finding Power Moons.[

Nintendo Announces Mario No Longer A Plumber!

 

After 34 years of cleaning out the Mushroom Kingdom’s pipes, Mario is turning in his wrench.

Nintendo has changed the biography of its most famous character, saying he is no longer a plumber. What he is doing for a living these days, though, is a lot less clear.

“All around sporty, whether it’s tennis or baseball, soccer or car racing, [Mario] does everything cool,” says the profile on Nintendo of Japan’s page (as translated by Kotaku). “As a matter of fact, he also seems to have worked as a plumber a long time ago…”

It’s unclear if Mario’s brother Luigi is carrying on the plumbing business on his own.

While Mario, whose fondness for his blue overalls is legendary, has been known as a plumber for years, he actually started out as a carpenter in Donkey Kong (when he was known simply as “Jumpman”). He has also been cast as a baseball player, a golfer, an Olympian and a doctor in other games.

Clearly, the elective classes at Nintendo’s trade school are a bit more thorough than your local community college.

Mario returns to gaming consoles in October in Super Mario Odyssey, where he’ll travel to several worlds to (once again) save Princess Peach from Bowser.

WWE 2K18 Coming For Nintendo Switch !!

The latest installment of the “WWE 2K” franchise, “WWE 2K18,” is getting a new home in the form of the Nintendo Switch, and fans can apparently expect some interesting things from it.

In a recent post on the game’s official website, developers revealed that players can experience this title in different ways.

If players opt to keep the Switch docked, they can then go ahead and play the game on TV, much like how it can be enjoyed using other consoles.

Thanks to the specific capabilities of the Switch, players who get this new wrestling game for Nintendo’s hybrid platform can also try it out as a portable offering and see how they like it.

It is still unclear if the Switch version of “WWE 2K18” will differ from the ones coming to other platforms in other ways, so wrestling fans will have to stay tuned for that.

Developers also revealed over on Twitter that the Switch variant of the upcoming wrestling game will not be based on previous gen versions.

While there may be things unique to the Switch version of “WWE 2K18,” developers noted that it will also share features with its counterparts going to other consoles.

For instance, Switch owners can count on seeing new animations and improved visuals that are meant to make the game appear more realistic.

Developers are also introducing some new components such as the grapple carry system as well as 8-man matches.

Existing components are getting updated too, with MyCareer mode getting an extra addition in the form of Road to Glory mode.

More creation options are also expected to be introduced, and of course, the game will again feature a large roster.

While the versions of “WWE 2K18” coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One already have exact release dates, the one planned for the Switch thus far only has a fall 2017 release window.

Why Nintendo Switch Mini Is Definitely Coming (Video)

So there’s been rumors about a Nintendo Switch Mini in the works. I think a Nintendo Switch Mini or a Nintendo Switch Lite is definitely coming and here’s why

“Although the Nintendo Switch can be used as a handheld device, we think smaller children could struggle to use it comfortably in that format due to its size and weight. Accordingly, we think Nintendo will launch a lighter, dedicated handheld version of the Switch, possibly to be called the Switch Mini.”
