Mario Odyssey: My New Addiction


In my opinion the 3rd hit title to land on Nintendo Switch arrived last friday and arguable the most iconic of the three, Mario Odyssey. If you are a fan of Nintendo at all you should know the other 2 titles but if you dont its Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Zelda: Breath of the wild. 😉

Now I’m going to be honest right off the bat, I’m still very early into Mario Odyssey, (I blame Stranger things) But already I’m getting that similar feeling I had when I first played Mario 64 on the N64. (PS Mario 64 is still king)

Of course the lead character being Mario gives that sense of joy when free roaming the different levels buts its the new companion Cappy who is fast becoming the star of the show. No longer restricted to just butt bouncing and fireballs, Cappy can be used in a multitude of different ways and combinations, some of which can only be used with motion controls. This new movement/attack adds a new dimension to the Mario universe and also adds another nifty trick of being able to posses and and control other characters within the game.


I plan on updating once I’m more in depth with the game as a serious binge is due over the next few days but I can already see this maybe creeping into my top 5 Mario games of all time. ( Mario 64 – Super Mario Bros 3 – Super Mario World – Super Mario Bros – Super Mario Kart)

Have you brought the game? How are you getting on so far? Comment Below
