Zelda was a giant franchise cornerstone for the Nintendo Switch, but there's one bigger.
Nintendo revealed the game, complete with a trailer of Mario moving through a 3D sandbox-style set of worlds with different art styles. It looks like a return to Mario games like Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine, with a completely free-reign exploratory feel. It's got many bizarre mini-universes, including a New York City doppelganger called New Donk City. And, it involves a magic hat with eyes.
Also, as we just learned, that hat can take over things: dinosaurs, tanks and just about anything. The new trailer is below, and it's pretty unbelievable. It also suggests an incredible level of weird play.
For the Nintendo Switch, which is already a hot property, Super Mario Odyssey should be the biggest system-seller of all.
