Nintendo's newest Mario platformer is here! With the launch of Super Mario Odyssey, the Nintendo Switch now has two major first-party titles (the other being The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild) inside its first year that demonstrate the design possibilities and motion control experiments that are possible on the sytsem.
So what's the game like? How does Nintendo introduce players to its weird new mechanics? We took a close look today on the Gamsautra Twitch channel. It's definitely a wild new setting for Mario, and its areas neatly unfold to introduce you to new kinds of entities you can "capture," as the game calls it.
You can watch the full video above, and while you're at it, be sure to follow the Gamsautra Twitch channel for more gameplay commentary, developer interviews, and editorial roundtables.
