A Moment That Captures Why Super Mario Odyssey Seems So Special

We’ve written a lot about E3 this week and covered a lot of games, including Super Mario Odyssey. Still, here’s one more post about that game, because it’s too cool not to share with you.

The above video is from Nintendo’s Treehouse Live demo of Mario Odyssey’s forest level. In the first six minutes, the Nintendo folks hosting the stream show the basics of the level. They collect some coins and some moons.


And then, at 6:55 or so, they start to run Mario up a narrow ledge. If you want to see some of what makes this game seem so special, watch what happens at that point.
