Mario takes his maiden voyage on Nintendo Switch in Super Mario Odyssey, out this holiday

Nintendo has just revealed Super Mario Odyssey, the next adventure for everyone's favorite plumber. Only this time, Mario is leaving the Mushroom Kingdom behind for the real world (and plenty of others). There's also Bowser, dressed to the nines like a pimp. And oh yeah, Mario's hat now has eyes on it. Yup, Mario's next 3D adventure, due on Switch in late 2017, sure looks different.

Like Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Odyssey is giving players a variety of sandbox worlds to explore. Beyond that, it's mostly what you expect: Mario hopping and bopping through colorful environments, "yippee"-ing and "wahoo"-ing along the way.
