The deep woods looks a lot like the Hang Son Doong cave in Vietnam.

Wait, when does that second one play? Bc I love that rendition of 1-1

I'm pretty sure it's from the first quest in New Donk City where you gather musicians for Pauline's concert. And the more musicians you get, the more instruments are added to the song.

I got to play the game today at a Nintendo post E3 event in Utrecht. I played New Donk and the desert level, both timed at 10 minutes each. The levels feel massive, there's so much to see and discover. Really feels like king size 64/Sunshine style levels.

Important to note: of course the shape shifting part of the Cappy gameplay gets all the attention, but way more important is that the cap is an extra platform tool. A Nintendo guy doing the presentation beforehand could already pull these off reliably. After a long jump you can use the cap for even more distance. I couldn't pull it off yet in the short time I had, but crazy jumps are possible. He even showed a skip for an entire platform section with one long Cappy jump. Speedrunners are going to have a lot of fun with this game.
I didn't get them to work yet in the limited time I had, but that's something to dive into when the game comes out. Cappy definitely is the extra flavor to the platforming here.

M+R was also playable. Believe it or not, I was maybe more hooked there than in the Odyssey demo. That game is also something special.

We also got a cookie, that I can now never eat

just wanna say if they're going to make amiibos out of Mario's seven trillion different costumes in the game, I'm getting all of those


Odd that they used the Charge'em Chuck for the football Mario, since IIRC Charge'em Chucks are actually in the game and can be Cap-tured, aren't they? Maybe there's just no footage of it?

Is in-game music more subtle in this game? I've seen a few videos where music is either absent or very subtle.

I'm guessing that has to do with the game being in development, because I noticed it too and it seemed jarring and out of place rather than intentional. I think/hope that most of those silent gameplay sections will have musical accompaniment when the game ships.

At E3 it was still running 720p docked right? Any word yet on a resolution bump like Splatoon 2 got before launch?

NEW KINGDOM CONFIRMED



This officially confirms that the Cascade Kingdom (Dinosaur) is separate from the underwater Cheep Cheep Kingdom. This is because the pink moon shown in the photo is not yellow like the ones in the Cascade kingdom. That means so far there are 7 CONFIRMED KINGDOMS in the game

That is one lovely piece of art. Time to watch the trailer again.

Correct. Metro was bronze, Sand was green, Wooded was blue, Cascade was yellow and this cheep cheep one is pink.

No I mean, I don't remember where we saw that the Cascade Kingdom moons were yellow. I don't remember any footage of that kingdom outside of the trailer to begin with.

Awesome.

As usual though, everyone overreacted. Nintendo wasn't about to show every kingdom at E3.

I'd wager there's at least 10 kingdoms.

Hmmm how many distinct moon colors can they use? We have bronze, blue, green, yellow and now pink. I'm gonna guess white or black for the Cap Kingdom, maybe red for the Mushroom Kingdom. They can also use teal/cyan, orange, purple, maybe brown?

That gives me 12 distinct enough colors I can think of. There are probably more, this wasn't the most scientific exercise haha

Didn't we already know about Cascade Kingdom? Plus when you look at the map of the world it showed more than six kingdoms.

It was confirmed in the official twitter that there were more kingdoms to be revealed, so...

Well yeah and that's been brought up in this thread a few times, but it doesn't stop people from refusing to believe it!

or those people just didn't see that particular tweet...but it's still silly to think we had seen everything

This is a different Kingdom then the dinosaur/waterfall one, since we've seen the Moons there and they are yellow. I'm not sure if we know the official name of either of these kingdoms though.

I see. I misread the Cascade Kingdom part. I do find it funny some are surprised there are more kingdoms. I think someone broke down the map and you can see spots not labeled included what looks like Mushroom Kingdom. I'm hoping we get to go there and play the first level from Mario 64.



What's even more funny is people we're scared there was only FOUR Kingdoms after the January trailer and like "what?? Why would there be only four kingdoms. Nintendo never shows everything". It doesn't help Andre from Gamexplain was speculating there could only be four kingdoms. It annoyed me because someone like him should know Nintendo and they don't show everything in a first trailer.

So we got
1. Cappy Kingdom
2. Cascade Kingdom
3. New Donk City
4. Desert Kingdom
5. Forest/Jungle Kingdom + Dark Forest
6. Polygon Kingdom
7. And this new water kingdom?

I think there might be 15 kingdom if more news of them keep coming out.
