Mario Has A New-Found Power
Attendees at the E3 2017 Spotlight presentation of Nintendo were treated with a cinematic trailer of Super Mario Odyssey that revealed Mario in a new costume, frolicking in the game's open world and showing his new abilities. It appears that Mario has a new-found power in his hat. He uses it apparently to level up in the game.
It Resides In His Hat
How can Mario's hat be this powerful? The reveal trailer of Super Mario Odyssey at the E3 2017 shows that he can use it to turn his enemies into friends. How is he able to do this? By simply throwing his hat at them. With this hat, Mario can control big dinosaurs, a horde of goombas, taxis and many more. The trailer seems to show that this is how gamers will be able to progress in this new game from Nintendo Switch.
Super Mario Odyssey features an open world that gamers need to explore in their quest to locate the Power Moon collectibles. Mario needs these items as sources of power for his airship which he uses to explore the vast expanse of the game's open world. The game has a 3D capability which makes the game's open world look very realistic.
