Even if we can only explore the castle without entering any paintings, it will be enough.

This is going to be my daughter's first 3D Mario game. She loves the SMB titles on our NES classic. She's going to be in for a real treat.

Just noticed all the water on the seaside kingdom is carbonated and it fizzes as you swim through it lol, nice touch

edit: seeing these new previews is definitely easing my mind about the world design. seaside definitely looks like it has a ton of layers once you look below the water, looks really neat.

I'm assuming this is the one with Unagi the terrifying eel that showed up in a screenshot I saw on Twitter.

edit: never mind, I guess that's a separate thing

We canít say what it is but it looks amazing, and will blow the minds of Super Mario 64 fans."


Give me this game.

It's clearly the Mushroom Kingdom. But I want to point something interesting I found in the footage of the last Nintendo Direct. They actually show that kingdom in the map, but in the in-game map, we can see the "geography" of the kingdoms, Tostarena is a big desert, Shiveria is a big Ice land, the cap kingdom es black like the grass found there. But what about the Mushroom Kingdom? Well, it has green and brown land masses simulating the classic Mario's mushrooms, the interesting part here is that there's a big brown square land in the middle of the island simulating the middle dot in Mario's mushrooms but why is a square instead a circle mass? Because there's is the Peach's Castle! And is obviously full explorable. And I'm pretty confident they will "remake" a lot of the worlds found in Mario 64.

nah, this game's liable to have plenty of Mario 64 callbacks even outside of the most ostentatious ones, and I'd be shocked if this is the only one tied to a portrait portal.

Sort of going on a blackout. I'm only reading parts of articles and taking a look at footage of things we've already seen and news updates that don't contain spoilers. Hopefully I can keep it up... This is actually the first game I'm sort of doing a blackout on. Odyssey is looking like the potential GOAT, no hyperbole.

I was one of those individuals who was skeptical when I first saw the E3 footage. But man, everything since then has me more and more excited. Now I'm almost regretting watching this latest footage because I want to be surprised when playing it for the first time...like that same sort of awe I had when I first played Super Mario World.

To try and drag the hype down a bit to mortal levels, it seems like some of the moon puzzles are repeated throughout the game. Specifically, I've seen at least 3 instances of the stack of goombas to save/impress the lady goomba thing.

Hopefully there aren't too many repeats.

This is nothing new. Galaxy had repeat missions with the robot to get stars. You can say the same with 3D World and Captain Toad.

tbh my #1 concern about this game is that the mission-based structure is going to be incredibly tired on replays

I don't have a problem with it, because those are side objectives and each one appears to be handled a bit differently, simply based on level design. My guess is there's one of those in each kingdom.

Seems to be set up very similarly to Sunshine in that way.

To be fair those missions will all be varied thanks to the terrain greatly affecting them. It's kinda like the red coins from 64.

lol yeah, be careful blackout folks.

This only confirms what I already knew based on the Mushroom Kingdom sticker on the website, so it's not a huge deal. XD

Still though, I'm saving seeing it in its entirety for the game itself. Fucking hyped, man.

Those were different missions with the same core theme, rather than these which seem to be framed as a puzzle, but once you've done it once you know the solution. Maybe they will throw in some hiccups, like making it hard to find the correct number of Goombas or whatever.

The fact that we've seen so little repetition so far makes me think that won't be a big problem. From all of the BotW E3 footage we saw a lot of different Korok seed puzzles which looked extremely similar, here we basically just have a lot of hidden moons and a few that require different tasks to unveil.

The fact that it's taken until now that we've seen this kinda repetition even with all of the footage that's out there makes me think it'll be a very rare thing in the game.
