The time has finally arrived: Super Mario Odyssey has been released for the Nintendo Switch! We have been waiting for this moment since the fateful night we saw and live-reacted to Shinzō Abe being possessed by Mario and Cappy during the Rio 2016 Olympics Closing Ceremony.
Yeah, KoopaTV broke the story, and we outlined Mario + Cappy's capabilities here, foreshadowing Super Mario Odyssey as early as August 2016, months before Super Mario Odyssey was formally revealed in the famous Nintendo Switch presentation. The whole time throughout our pre-release coverage, we have been warning about the dangers of Mario and Cappy.
However, despite our worldly revelations concerning Cappy relating to geopolitical threats of nuclear war, along with a very high-profile royal figure (...of music), there are still many questions about Cappy and his species. It's because of this reason that I'm going to buy Super Mario Odyssey very soon. It's OPPOSITION RESEARCH on key Koopa Kingdom enemies.
|Mario's existence is a disincentive to walk to work, since he's jumping around assaulting humans like YOU!|
This is why there's so much traffic congestion! (Cars aren't safe from Cappy, however.)
Why should YOU buy Super Mario Odyssey? Well, if you don't share my questions (and you should, since it affects your world as much as mine), then I can think of one very compelling reason why you should buy Super Mario Odyssey...
...The game is said to be absolutely amazing, and a very strong contender for Game of THAT Year 2017! Super Mario Odyssey is the first true “killer app” of the Nintendo Switch, an experience that you cannot replicate if you still are clinging to the Wii U.
I don't think that statement is particularly controversial. It's been confirmed from the start that Super Mario Odyssey is taking after the Super Mario 64-Super Mario Sunshine style of free-roaming 3D exploration design, rather than the largely linear romps of the Super Mario Galaxy titles. Plus, it's not a similar sequel or port of a Wii U game (sorry, Splatoon 2 and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild), and it's not contemptible garbage (get the hell off my website, ARMS). The Wii U has nothing like it.

Don't just take my word for it. We've had people who have actually played the game write on this site about how great it was. (Kamek has played that demo as well, and he liked it.)
Vortexica actually took my advice (did YOU?) to go buy a Nintendo Switch while they are still very well-stocked and sold at normal prices. Now he is a Nintendo Switch owner, along with Super Mario Odyssey! Rawk has purchased Super Mario Odyssey as well, thanks to digital distribution.
Me? I'm going to buy a physical copy.
By the way, I'm not even going to justify yesterday's guest article with a response at this time. However, we agree with the part that says to buy Super Mario Odyssey. ...Everything else is highly questionable.
Hope to see you at King Bowser's wedding!
Odyssey, ya see. Odyssey, ya see. Odyssey, ya see. Odyssey, ya see. Odyssey, ya see. Odyssey, ya see. Odyssey, ya see. Odyssey, Odyssey! In other words, KoopaTV does not reimburse the purchases made by its staff members, even if the site says these items are must-buys. Ludwig doesn't even like 3D platformers, so if he actually falls in love with Super Mario Odyssey after playing it, then it will deserve all of the free marketing KoopaTV has given it over the past YEAR-PLUS. Never forget that KoopaTV was the first website in the universe to spread awareness of Super Mario Odyssey. You're welcome. Stay tuned to KoopaTV for more!
Super Mario Odyssey also happened to be the hero of E3 2017. You can read the reaction log here to figure out how.
